“Western food for the desperate”

This was out attempt at Western food in China. The shepherds pie was the best bet, all else was average. Go if you really need a fix. good selection of English books to peruse.

“Overpriced, pricey and increasing in price almost monthly.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012


Service is slow, attitude is very poor. Had a flat beer and was told to take it up with the brewery! Thanks for nothing. Guilin is friendly but not this place. For foreigners downtown who dont mlnd a wait i suppose you can spend 75rmb on lunch if you want to

“Food is ok but too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Their food is good, but it's really expensive. I don't think the price matches the food. I could make any of those dishes myself for a quarter of the price, so I know they're just taking advantage of foreigners.

“a cozy nook!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

This is the only place nearest to our taste of Pissa and spaghetti! we have been here in Guilin for 4 years and this is the only place nearest to our picky palate, well in Guilin it is so hard to look for one, but Rosemart's is just at the heart of the walking street. The serevers are polite and can really, really communicate in English, which is quite surprising because around downtown seldom you will encounter a resto with English speaking servers, and the owner we call her Rosemary(but she said her name is not Rosemary) anyway, she is friendly and is warm hearted, though the palce is but because it is already becoming popular so that is why there are many clients already, but back in 2008 the place is what we call really a cozy nooK! Now they expanded and still it is still Cozy and the food is great, nothing can beat Rosemary's in GUILIN!!!!!!!!!!
