After many hours on your feet wandering around Hoi An ancient town, this little restaurant is perfect to sit quietly and reflect on your day! On the banks of the river, it has a neat little garden seating area, with more seating available inside - you can walk through to the street running parallele behind. The food was delicious and reasonable, and the two for one drinks happy hour was a bonus. We enjoyed this place so much, we returned the following evening. A couple of resident kittys make their self known, not annoyingly, just more amusingly as they decide who is boss of the area for the evening!

Highly recommed this great restaurant. So enjoyed it, I went back again 2 nights later! Wonderful comfortable bar area with relaxing sofas and a cool breeze. Try the mojitos - superb!
Great menu with a good choice of dishes - all freshly cooked and delicious. Good wine too. Very friendly and helpful staff and a lovely ambience.
Make sure you put this on your list when you visit Hoi An. Everyone raved about Morning Glory (which I did enjoy) but this is even better!

Along with a group of five others visited the Lantern Town restaurant. We were fortunate to have a balcony view and some of the best service and food we had during our 3 week tour of Vietnam. Ther staff couldn't do enough for us. They were friendly and informative as to what was available on the menu. Will be visiting again on my next trip.

My family and I went to Lantern Town tonight and I must say was a little surprised when I received my bill. My wife had a mojito and I had a beer and we were told that it was happy hour 2 for 1, however when we received our bill we were charged full price for both drinks. I spoke to the manager and asked him to fix the problem however he told me it was my misunderstanding. There was no way he was going to credit a 33,000 (dong) (1.25) usd. It wasn't about the money it was the poo attitude. I just wanted to be treated fairly and I did not think that that was the case. The food was okay but it was all about the principle. My 11 year old son looked at me after and said that was not right!!

Dear Schmulandj,
Thanks for coming to our restaurant.
First of all, you did not speak to me but one of my staff.
We are surprised to hear your side of the story and before we have chance to tell everyone our own side, it is absolutely not fair for our bussiness and all friendly staff for your poor rating.
We have been running this promotion for over a year and it never happened like what happened to you: we say clearly that "Buy 1 get 1 free for same drinks and applied for all cocktails and local beers". All our guests last night and for the past one year understand this well.
You and your wife got 1 mojito(4usd) and 1 beer(1.25usd) it meaned you have two mojito and two beers and we always serve one first and one later on to make sure drinks cold. Our staff DID ask you when you finished your first round that if you liked your second drinks but you DID say no.
You can not charge our staff for poor attitude if they did not follow the way you want as they know they were right. As you said, it is not about the money but about your way of behavior when you were so aggressive to our staff last night.
The problem with Trip advisor today is some people think they have big right of charging all bussiness if they not happy with anything does not matter it is their fault or not.
Thank you for coming again
