We stayed at the River View Hotel and didn't eat there the first night, mistakenly thinking it would be pricey being associated with the hotel. Should have checked the menu at least before paying higher prices (as to be expected!) on West Street.
Ended up enjoying breakfasts (lots of selection, rice porridge was 8rmb, coffee good, western breakfast sets available from 20 to 30 RMB) and dinners here as its a quieter location, right across from river. Local beer is 7 RMB and the home made red wine was lovely (sweet but I liked it) for 10 per glass. Definitely worth a try eating here and nice location.
