We stopped by this bar in the afternoon for a coffee and went back for dinner upstairs in the afternoon. It was quiet so we were seated overlooking the street with a great street view. The resaturant was clean, service was alright, and the food was decent. We opted for Italian that night and their selection was decent. All in all we had a good experience and would return.

Nothing special here but too expensive also service and drinks not good. As a backpacker, we should find out Downtown Watering Hole bar on Tran Cao Van st. It was very cheap, alot cheaper than other bars in Hoian, owner is nice guy with German, French, English, Dutch, Cantonese. Easy to communicate with us. Similar decore and set up but smaller than Bfore&Now. Would rather to enjoy Downtown bar than B&N.

I happened by this place one morning and I stopped for breakfast. Yummy. So I went back a few more times.The service was a bit lacking once or twice. But overall. .....Worth a visit. Reasonably priced. Good food. Well served most of the time! With a typical open aspect onto the street, it is a fine little place to 'Bide a while'.I never got there on a night tikme but the decor leads me to think that the bar scene could be good in season!

Bar scene but nice place to sit and have a cup of coffee during the day or while waiting out the rain. Great paintings on the walls with a pool table for fun! Reasonably priced drinks (not the cheapest I've seen but with a decent happy hour and higher quality drinks), good service, fun atmosphere. Lots of backpackers since this place makes it into most guidebooks.

We went here only once for a drink. The bar is in a great location on a busy street and good for people watching. We tried the gin and tonics which during happy hour cost 50000 VND. We were disappointed. They were premixed in small glasses and contained more ice than liquid. There are better bars which may be slightly less populated but offer better value.
