This place is good for grabbing a drink. It has two floors so you can choose between the noisy atmosphere of the first floor and the more relaxed are on the second floor with a view of the street.

After travelling for almost 2 months my partner and I were really craving some very good western food, we were delighted when we found the why not bar and it was just what we needed.

This is nice restaurant. It stands out due to western "theme". Personnel is nice, prices are ok. We had only beer, no food.

We thoroughly enjoyed the meal here accompanied by a few local beers! I had the stir fried noodles with chicken and my husband had sautéed chicken with rice. Both piping hot and beautifully presented. Seemed to be a backpacker venue, very lively but fun and excellent value for money. Give it a try. Sue

Came to Hue from Phong Nha and we were greeted by Trang and Phi who were both very sweet and had good sense of humour! BBQ pizza was tasty and prices were fine.
