“Sophisticated flavours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

I have just returned from eating here and found the food to be absolutely delicious. Very clean and subtle flavours in a charming setting. My children loved the food and we have decided to go back tomorrow. The stuffed squid was particularly good. I really liked the attitude from the staff it wasn't the familiar trying too hard to please, the experience was all about the food. Fantastic.

“Great setting and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We decided to eat here as we were staying across the road. We ate the local specialties and thought the food was excellent and some of the best we have eaten in Vietnam to date. The setting is great and the service is relaxed, friendly and unrushed. A perfect place for a romantic dinner.

“A gem. DELICIOUS food and wonderful setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I was staying down to road so on my first night decided to eat here planning to go further afield on other nights. Not so. I have eaten here several times now and have LOVED every dish ordered. The flavours are just amazing. Fish in Banana-Leaf was exceptional as was the Slow cooked Pork in Clay-pot. I aslo ate, each time, a smaller dish [eg Banh Beo] and they were delicious morsels, full of flavour but not over-powering. The setting right on the river is just gorgeous and its open-air giving a great atmosphere. Waiting staff are lovely - tho when wanting to order a second dish or drink I did need to chase them.... but they cheefully responded. I loved eating here and with 2 alcoholic drinks incl and what I call 2 courses usually spent about $13-$15 US total.

“Fantastic location and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We stopped off at this restaurant for lunch whilst out cycling and what a little gem we found. The Trip advisor board outside the hotel caught our attention as well as the delightful riverside location. We sat down at a table next to the river and started with the fried spring rolls based on an old recipe - best we have tasted by a mile in our trip to Vietnam. The chicken in a clay pot and the large prawns in garlic butter that followed just put me in food heaven - simple but quite simply perfect. One not to be missed !
