walked in to brothers from the street side and had a look at the garden and loved the riverside location. We had a nice cappuccino in a beautiful setting which we both enjoyed so we didn't mind paying a little more for the coffee. To the price on the menu you have to add an extra15 % ( tax and... More

Went here for lunch as a group. From the street just looks like any other cafe/restaurant but was so surprised when taken through the first restaurant into a pretty garden where there were other eating rooms plus there was also seating outside at the back overlooking the river. We had a set menu which was very good. Lots of different... More

There were six of us traveling together and we stopped by Brother's Café for lunch. We walked through a lovely garden to our table near the river. We were in a private covered eating area where we could watch the activity along the river. It was a very pleasant atmosphere and we were the only people outside in the garden.... More

We enjoyed a full meal at Brothers, from appetizers, to soup, to main course, to fruit for dessert. All were prepared quite well, and served professionally. The waiter was engaging and the atmosphere- we sat by the river - was superb. Prices were moderate. We asked the waiter for her recommendations and they did not disappoint. We recommend Brothers to... More

An enjoyable cuisine served by friendly and efficient staff. Hoi An spring rolls melted in your mouth and the fried fish in tomato sauce was really tasty. Topped off by Hoian cake and washed down with local beer made it a meal to remember

Don't go there for a meal, you will be sitting with 150 Koreans or chinese! But do go for the cooking class. Request a private: you will first go to the market, then take a short boat ride (so don't do either the day before!) prepare the food and eat it. Cooking Class is at 830 am and you start... More

I walked by this place a few times, and every time i was intrigued by the setting. A beautiful property, with a colonial looking mansion with large dining halls, set on the river, with garden of spectacular beauty. The menu is reasonably priced hence we gave it a go. First off, the tables didn't exactly wow us. We sat in... More

Had dinner here one very wet evening. We were escorted with an umbrella to a table which was inside looking out onto the river. Very pleasant, gentle service. Nice meal, all good — other than the weather. Went back for lunch a couple of days later for Cao Lau — another good experience.

We followed a recommendation in Lonely planet and ... 1) the food was cold ... first dish, second dish ... we complained, next dish was cold again (forget it) 2) the food - dishes you find everywhere in Hoi An was not tasty, not seasoned enough, my duck not well done and - unusual for Vietnamese kitchen - poorly decorated...

Food and atmosphere is off the charts. A must. Our waitress is a doll. We sat at the bar which is not the norm but you can sit on the river or many choices. Gorgeous and old architecture.
