Lamb chops are awesome and the wine selection is superb. We sat upstairs in open seating looking out onto the dragon bridge.

“Nice view and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Sometimes you want an American type meal while on the road and a nice water view. The Waterfront has both. The food is good and of course a little more money that local cuisine, but still reasonably priced.

“Local Flavor/American Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Had two meals here--one lunch, one dinner. Both excellent. Sat on the veranda overlooking the street and river. American manager helped enlighten us on the local culture while we ate perfectly tasty Vietnamese dishes. Great cocktails (slow bar service), and friendly waiters.

“Good food, nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

On a night out in Da Nang we had dinner at this restaurant. Beautiful location on the river, big variety of wines (not really expensive) and broad selection on the menu. Had one of the best meze outside the Near-East.
Definitely worth going!

“Not clean, otherwise okay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Not clean, otherwise okay

Lonely Planet is very enthusiastic about the Waterfront restaurant - which makes it seem a bit overrated to us.
Yes, the view to the river across the (noisy) road is nice, and the staff is friendly.
Our menu card was dirty inside and out, our table was greasy, and two of our coaster had mayonnaise on them. When the American fellow (the manager?) asked if everything was all right we pointed at the coaster; he said: "Sorry 'bout that."
We were served white rolls and white bread with (too little) butter - the bread was not fresh in the evening, which is understandable but does not reflect the pricey menu.
The chicken burger was fresh though small, good ingredients, it came with about a dozen potato wedges and a few grams of house salad.
The Thai green curry with Tofu was fine, especially the shitake mushrooms.
The bill came as a very small piece of paper, handed to us without the usual leather envelope. We wanted to pay in dollars. The bill was 350 000 Dong - the first waiter said that would make 20 Dollars, the second waitress said 18. Instead of $2, we received 70,000 Dong change. Too little.
We think that the Waterfront restaurant has the potential to become a good address for international and wealthy Vietnamese guests - if they master the hygiene issue and a few standard details.
