Seriously, it was the best food we had during our trip. Our group of 4 shared the three menus (vegetarian, seafood and meat), and at the end we were stuffed. The wine was good, the view was good, and even the silent waiter was funny....More

The owner (Mr. Kim) suggested that our group of 4 order 3 set menus (1 seafood, 1 veggie, 1 meat) and that we share it all. He showed us how to eat each dish properly and scolded us when he saw us doing it wrong!...More

Dieses Restaurant ist definitiv eine Empfehlung wert. So schoen Hoi An auch ist, leider ist es ueberschwemmt mit Touristenkaschemmen in denen das Essen nicht nur ueberteuert sondern auch geschmacklos ist. Welch eine Abwechlsung war das Café des Amis. Jeden Abend werden neue Menues angeboten (fuer...More
