We followed the trail of good reviews in Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor to Cava but were not as impressed as others. The garden seating with lanterns, torches and chill out areas is very picturesque but the food did not live up to expectations.

Went to this resturant on our last night in Hoi An, the food was excellent and so was the atmosphere, very relaxing and comfortable. The owner was very nice.
Would recommend highly it was a great experience.

Went to this restaurant after exploring the town at night and walking over the bridge and beside the river.
Ordered the seafood, which was all delicious and served by some very shy wait staff, who spoke little English, but we were able to be understood.
As a treat we ordered desserts and the sorbet and ice creams (we tried three) were perfect. The chocolate ice cream with almonds was to die for.
A shooter served at the end of the meal was a nice touch, but too strong for the females in our party and we didn't have it explained to us what it was.
Will go back if we are ever in HoiAn again

We ate twice in this restaurant and were very pleased by almost everything. The food is really very tasteful, delicate and surprising. Its nice you can eat some not-Vietnamese dishes too. Swedish owner, knows how to run it. Lounche benches outside are soft. The garden is magical, just a litle from all the noises of the centre.

We went to this place with some Australian friends who'd discovered a write up about it. In all we were three adults and three kids. We went a bit on the early side the night before the typhoon landed so town was a bit deserted and we were the only patrons having an early dinner. We sat out on the lovely terrace and the staff thoughtfully lit citronella mosquito coils for just under the table. The kids' menu was just perfect and ours enjoyed their fish and chips. We adults had various seafoods. Mine was an awesome flambeed shrimp in a kind of curry sauce with penne. Just fantastic rivaling our best chefs in San Francisco. Seriously. Yummy. Easily the best meal of our 11 days in Vietnam.
