Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is very interest place on Hoi An beach. It's real french cuisine in Vietnam. owner this cafe is Frenchman. This French food I ate only in Provence! Very delicious! You can also play pool and petanque, at the bar you can negotiate with the trainer for learning to surfing. Staff speak on english, french and vietnamese languages.

“Great food and location!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Superb location on the beach with a nice house and lounge bar and billard table...
We've been there 5 times and the food was always good (I recommend their "tartare de thon").
Friendly staff, just not stressed so don't expect the service to be very fast and enjoy a few beers waiting for the meal.

“This is the place to go !”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We stayed about 3 weeks in Hoi An from the middle of December 2012 to begining of January 2013 and we visited several restaurants in Hoi An and this was our favorite dinner place because the 2 french guys which are runing this place are doing a good job. They are very service oriented and food quality was very good as well. I ate the fillet steak, almost all burgers, spagetti bolognese and and........ and all was good. Before we found the Banyans we went one time to Hoi An City and went in to a restaurant at the river and they cheated us as good as they could in terms of price and food quality. We payed for the same menu a five times higher prices as at the Banyans. We never ate again in Hoi An City.

“Rustic, friendly place on the beach.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This French run beach bar / restaurant on An Bang beach serves a mixture of local and continental dishes at reasonable prices. There is a large pool table at the bar and the hosts are very open and friendly. They have no problem if you wish to order from one of the other adjacent restaurants and have your food delivered to their premises.

“Leaving was too hard”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This place is a little spot of heaven you'll never want to leave. Wonderful food and wine with a really relaxed laid back friendly atmosphere, in a perfect spot. If you are staying in Hoi An, go here on your last night because if you go here sooner you won't visit anywhere else. Oysters, sashimi mahi mahi, plus a kind of vietnamese french fusion mix of interesting tapas dishes, plus good french wine (not at all easy to find in Vietnam). On our second night here (our last in Hoi An) an impromptu party started up and we ended up leaving way too late. Which was still too early. We really loved this place. Go.
