A very charming venue on the beach side, with scenic view, great food and warm and welcoming atmosphere. we just couldn't leave the place and felt so good there, especially thanks to most friendly and generous welcome ever!
perfect place to indulge a romantic diner on the beach as well and sharing drinks with friends!
Try the Vodka chili or caramel shooters!A must do!

The most beautiful spot on the beach, the food is amazing the staff are all so nice they can't do enough to help you and the owner Gail (cong) is such a nice guy. Make sure you sample the flavoured Vodka (homemade) and his own style cocktails, superb!! A must for anyone travelling to Hoi An!!

The first time we came here, we really liked it. Staff were smiley, service good, the food was ok. In addition to this, the owner was lovely offering us his paddle board and letting us know where to hire a surf board from. The second time we went though we were pretty much ignored (there was an event on), the staff looked absolutely miserable, it took an age to order and once we'd managed to get a menu, the hot drinks we ordered came iced (iced milk tea is weird). I'm normally up for getting random orders when travelling but it was a little nippy and the cold tea was sooo weird, so queried if I could get a hot one. We were told it wasn't what we'd ordered and that due to the climate all teas and coffees are served iced. All the teas in Vietnam in all regions have been served hot (or with an option) including in Hoi An, so I 'm not entirely convinced by this argument. The owner did however kindly bring a hot tea which was seriously appreciated. I suggest that your experience will depend on the day, though for awesome Vietnamese food try elsewhere such as No.2 (Suong) on the same stretch. Otherwise chance your arm?

This was hands-down our favorite bar in Hoi An, and, in fact, in all of Vietnam. It was a great place to spend an afternoon/evening. The seating was incredibly comfortable, the views were exquisite, the food was delicious, the service was friendly and excellent, and the drinks were cold and strong. Basically, everything you could need or want in a bar.

We hung here with friends on a few different nights. The owner goes out of his way to make you feel at home, plying customers with free samples of his delicious concoctions and making friendly conversation with anyone who approaches his bar. When asked how late the bar stayed open, he said "until you're ready to go home", and when we were ready to leave, he called us a taxi which came quickly.

Do yourself a favor and head to An Bang beach, turn left when you hit the beach, and keep going. It's the last stop along and it's well worth the walk.

If Hoi An is the ideal spot to relax in Vietnam, this is the ideal spot to relax in Hoi An.

Note: for extremely budget-conscious travelers, this place is a bit on the pricey side compared to most of the other beachside establishments. That said, we thought it was worth every penny.

The French lads running Le Banyan are some of the best people in Hoi An. You go for a beer and stay for the conversation and genuine welcoming attitude. We were in the area for a few weeks and stopped by almost every three days or so. The food was of a very high quality. It was nice the way everyone was just as happy to see our daughters as they were my husband and me. Can't wait to sit there again and drink a beer during sunset while listening to DJ Dirty Fingrz.
