The restaurant has definitely a great location on the river as well as a nice terrace, but for the prize paid there, you can have both, much better food and much better service in Hoi An.
Since there was the lunar festival, the terrace was full and although we were told, we would be seated outside as soon as someone left, that never happened (and it had been obvious, since nearly everybody outside was still studying the menu when we came) - and the same promise was given to many more customers after us and not held either.
Prizes are high for Vietnam , but the service peoplewere clearly overwhelmed with the number of customers, although the inner part of the restaurant was not even half full. So, it was quite slow and a bit chaotic. Although I took "Today's set menu" (which IMO, should be readily available, since it's TODAY'S menu!), my boyfriend, who took only a main course, was served his dish nearly 10 minutes before I got my soup! The soup was ok, though. He had already finished eating when I got my arrangements of starters, which were beautifully arranged and tasted nice. My main course, the local Cao Lau, however, was much better during lunch time in a tiny street restaurant for a mere 30'000 VD (1.5 USD). The pork was dry and the noodles quite strange. I've left it aside to safe room for the dessert "exotic fruit", i.e., two pieces of water melon.
My mango juice was ok, but my boyfriend's Mojito did not come with any limes inside and was rather tasteless - although the prize was twice as high as in other restaurants.
The view over the river, however, is breathtaking, especially during the lunar festivals when the street lamps are shut down at night and the night is lit by a sea of lanterns and candles set afloat on the river.
