Description: Hoi An’s only wine bar is superbly located on the corner of Nguyen Thai Hoc and Le Loi Street. Their great wine list, including 11 by the glass, is complemented by an eclectic menu of Vietnamese and Asian favourites. This is a fantastic venue for people-watching and quaffing – we highly recommend you stop in to chill after a day of shopping and walking around town.

“A little jam”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

The place was on the recommendation list our hotel gave us. We went there for lunch and were really happy with everything we ordered. The place is homely, the staff lovely and the food delicious. By the time I finished my vegetarian green curry I was ready to lick the bowl :) My partner had some starters and loved the shrimp 'money bags' and grilled beef in Betel leaf.

“Delicious - great for people watching”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We'd read in the Lonely Planet that this place was good for wine, but it didn't really mention too much about the food. We were then recommended it by our hotel. As were wondering into town we stumbled upon it, and I'm very glad we did. The food and wine is delicious. The mixed platter was one of the best we ate in Vietnam and I'd also highly recommend the fish wrapped in banana leaf. The service is great and the restaurant has very big open windows, so it feels like you're practically sitting in the street, it's great for soaking uo the atmosphere in Hoi An. We loved it so much we spent our NYE there too. Great night! Good work White Marble.

“Great vibe”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Walked past this place a couple of times and decided to try. Food was fabulous, servings generous and exceptional balance of flavours. The wine menu was reasonably priced and extensive. I really liked the atmosphere here, rustic feel, casual and relaxed. Music playing in the background was great, not too loud but enough to be enjoyable. Great spot to watch the world go by.

The only reason I can't give this place an excellent rating is that the service was a bit hit and miss. Typically I have found all Vietnamese service to be outstanding, whether in a five star hotel or at local eatery on a sidewalk. At the White Marble some staff were delightful however a couple of the team were quite abrasive and it all seemed a bit too much of an effort. However this wouldn't stop me recommending the restaurant as the pros definitely outweigh the cons!

“Disapointing!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We have visited Hoi An a few times mainly because of all the good restaurants there, so having had a great experience at White Marble on previous trip we were keen to return. What a disappointment! One of the main criticism's is the atmosphere of the place, their aim seems to be to get you watered and fed as quickly as possible so they can fill the table again, which bearing in mind the food being served is supposed to be of restaurant quality, makes not for a fine dining experience. At times it felt like the food was being thrown at you with quite a bit of attitude. The food is just about OK but not outstanding, the pumpkin dish we ordered was very watery and had no taste. Yes the wine list is probably one of the better ones on offer in Hoi An, but you need time to enjoy it. On other trips we frequented White Marble more than once, needless to say once was more than enough this time. I know its hard to maintain standards and a good reputation but with so many up and coming excellent restaurants in Hoi An, White Marble need to up their game.

“Recommended”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

After drinking a thousand beers over the last week we felt like a change and decided to go wine.

Food was lovely and the wines were great. They had Australian bubbles and a cab sav as their blackboard specials - both were great and the price was fine. Lovely spot to watch the world go by downstairs and nice for a romantic dinner upstairs.

We had the White Marble set menu and they bought out one dish at a time, letting us enjoy the wine and the experience. We went back for more bubbles two nights later.
