Stopped by Luna often for an afternoon drink and snacks while staying in Yanshuo. Our favourite snack was the bruschetta. The restaurant has a rooftop terrace with a great view on Moon Hill. Location is a bit hidden, the restaurant is on top of the Yangshuo Village Inn. Staff is friendly and the food is good. Recommended.

I had dinner hear 3 times during our trip t Yangshuo. My 7 year old loved the view and thought the restaurant was very fancy! She always found something to eat NB all restaurants in China cook great Spaghetti Bolognese and this one was no exception! The service was good and very helpful too.

We are staying here at the Yangshuo Village Inn (recommended by a friend, and really nice to be out of town). Ate dinner last night on the roof at Luna restaurant. Whilst there are a lot of Italian options on the menu (the chef was trained by an Italian) we opted for an entirely Chinese dinner and it was delicious.... More

We were staying at the Mountain Resort and the staff suggested we try this place since it was on the roof terrace of their sister hotel. We did and it was very good and reasonably priced. We met a couple there from Bari in Italy and they also reckoned it was good with correctly cooked pasta and authentic sauces. Praise... More

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.

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!
