“Watching the world go by”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The ancient town of Hoi An has many lovely eateries and I recently enjoyed a meal at Al Fresco's. The salad was crisp, the fresh spring rolls packed with basil, the wine cold, and all very nicely presented with excellent service. In addition, it was a treat to look out onto the stalls selling beautiful Hoi An lanterns in all shapes, sizes and colours. People came and went, making for a memorable evening meal.

“Greasy Joe's”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The pizza we ordered was very,very greasy indeed.

The "man size" portion of ribs was laughably small and very bony.

This restaurant is overpriced and relies on it's scenic position to trick people into thinking it serves good food.

Don't be fooled!

“Great Location”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

This restaurant is in a good location near the end of the bridge and has seating upstairs as well as open air downstairs. The food and service are very good. A nice place to eat any time of day or night.
