We sat alongside the river enjoying the evening riverside ambience. We were serenaded throughout by frogs that enjoy the luxury of the restaurants water features. Food, staf and service were all excellent. Loved the fact that it was within easy walking distance of our hotel and situated in the walking cycle area of the town. Probably the cosiest restaurant we... More

Just walked out of this restaurant after a large rat passed by our terraced table while eating. The thought of this had the immediate effect of us not wanting to continue with our meal as the thought of rats in the kitchen and / or rat droppings in our food was totally abhorrent. The waitress offered us a derisory discount... More

This building, gardens and location are stunning. Sadly the drinks were expensive and the Bloody Mary I ordered was not drinkable as the tomato was fermented. To be fair I am not sure whether the waiter knew what to do. I ordered a different drink and when we left we were charged for the Bloody Mary too. We paid and... More

We enjoyed several times lunch and dinner in this restaurant in colonial style. The whole complex is well structured so that groups and individuals are separated from each other allowing a quiet, romantic atmosphere on a table with river view. The food quality was always above average, we were never disappointed. A beautiful location, indeed.

I am willing to pay for a certain quality but paying around 250'000 vnd for a ice cram is even in Switzerland a lot... 2 milk shakes and 1 ice cream for 360'000vnd (17-20$) The place is great but not worth such a price!

Food is OK. Staff is decent. But the price here is quite expensive. You are definitely paying for the view and atmosphere. Used a lot of mosquito spray but we still got bitten all over our bodies. Give this place a pass as there are many other different choices in the area

I went this restaurant by the recommendation from our hotel 's staff. I think it 's not suitable with a big family, it suit for the couple which a romantic moment because it's a nice & fusion decoration around the restaurant. The price a bit expensive like a 5 stars hotel.

We were brought here on a cruise-designed trip to Hoi An ---- I am generally skeptical about the enjoyment of any meal that involves tour groups, but this one wiped out that concern with ease. The food was great (I only wish I knew what we were eating b/c it was all excellent), the restaurant is just beautiful (riverside, incredible... More

We escaped to this restaurant out of a sudden downpour and were immediately impressed by our beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately, the food and service did not live up to this initial impression. Don't get me wrong, the food was fine, just not exceptional (and food in Vietnam, we've found on the whole to be exceptional). The service was very hit or... More

Had the bbq beef, chicken curry and cognac marinated prawn salad for a very late lunch in the patio overlooking the river. We were the only ones there but gosh the food was soooooo tasty. ( hungry boys I guess) the service was very friendly too. The setting is very "romantic in the day as In the night.
