I went because my hotel was the sister property (Yangshuo Mountain Retreat) and offered a free taxi over. To my surprise, I was the only customer for lunch that day. The rooftop restaurant has 360* views and a large covered area which made it bearable in the heat of the day. The whole property is beautifully crafted in a lovely... More

We had lunch at the Luna Cafe on a rainy afternoon in June 2016. The covered rooftop provided a beautiful view of Moon Hill while keeping us sheltered. The food was excellent, and out guide ordered a salad and remarked it was one of the few places she trusted to eat salad in the area. Very clean, the food was... More

This is the sister hotel to the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat and you can expect the same warm welcome in both. Although the village location is less idyllic, the Village Inn and Luna offer a good view of Moon Hill and some lovingly cooked Italian food. Worth a visit.

We stayed in the Hotel that houses the Luna Cafe. We ate there several times because of that, and were pleased with what we were served! The staff is truly helpful and are great with people, accommodating for different needs, and giving the best service possible. We ate on the terrace and down in their outdoor seating ground level.

Good, thin pizzas and also pesto pasta. Salad also nice. Perfect view of Moon hill. It was a haven amongst tourist buses down below. Would highly recommend if you're in the town or on way back from Silver Cave.

was a bit difficult to find, but such a gem when you do. we came here post-lunch for the view of Moon Hill, and it was so worth it. the drinks, fries, and brownie that we ordered were decent. perfect place to sit and hang out in the afternoon.

My last night was spent enjoying delicious Italian food and great wine at this wonderful place. Tina was especially helpful, gracious and treated me as if I were part of their "family". This was one of the best meals I've ever had in China!

We stayed at teh Yangshuo Mountain Retreat (the sister resort) and came here for dinner. The food was fantastic Italian fare. WE re told that the owner flies in chefs from Italy to train the local staff. It definitely shows in the quality of the food! The menu offers good choice of vegetarian food. We liked the food so much... More

Great food and obviously great view. Its hard to find (off the main drag, down through the gates opposite of moon hill) but if you do you're in luck. Both Pizza and Pasta we're incredible and ambiance just doesn't get any better.

Overlooking spectacular Moon Hill, Luna is the rooftop restaurant at Yangshuo Village Inn and is the only authentic Italian restaurant in Yangshuo. Our kitchen team was trained by an Italian chef and we serve great traditional favorites. We also have an excellent wine selection as well as some local Chinese dishes. Buono appetito!
