Incredible Cafe that we visited many time in the three days we were fortunate enough to stay in Hoi An. Fantastic Courtyard with ponds, waterfall wall, fish, little bridge before entering the tables on the riverside. Fantastic food, service and drink. Friendly staff - very...atmospheric place. At night a dream, during the day just relax and watch the boats and locals travel along the footpath by the Cafe.More

What a wonderful surprise! Looked nothing special from the street side but then you get walked through a beautiful 'Japanese' style garden to the riverside. What a lovely setting. Staff very attentive. Clean environment and beautifully presented food. Our choices didn't all meet all of...our palate but that's because we tried dishes we weren't familiar with but that's all part of the experience. Would highly recommendMore

Lovely setting looking out across the river, service was fine, table set nicely. However the food was “average” in taste, the chicken in a sweet and sour sauce was partly saved by the vegetables and pineapple in the sauce but only half the chicken was...eaten.....the duck in orange sauce was middle of the road not awful but not delicious. Personally thought $40 AUD for these two meals and two small bottles of sparking water rather expensive in comparison to other much much nicer meals we had eaten over two weeks in Hoi An.More

From the street in front of the restaurant you wouldn’t guess how beautiful it is inside and along the river. Great staff and food selection. Very reasonable prices !

The restaurant itself is very beautifully decorated, with a lovely riverside setting and good service, but I found the food bland, uninspiring and overpriced for what was on offer. This was by far the worst meal (and the most expensive) I ate in Vietnam.

My wife and I, visiting from Canada were looking for an upper scale restaurant for dinner away from the hustle and bustle of central Hoi An. We found the perfect place in the Brothers Cafe. This gorgeous riverfront restaurant set in ancient buildings surrounded by...beautiful gardens, stunningly decorated with twinkling lights and lanterns. We dined on a beautiful appetizer, a main course each and two drinks each. The food was very fresh and cooked to perfection. We were stunned when it came time to leave this beautiful spot, upon paying our bill to realize the cost was less than it would be for us to go out for a basic breakfast back home! The setting, the value, the service and the quality of food left us with one of the best dining experiences we have had in our entire travels around the planet! Thank you Brothers Cafe! Hen gap lai!

We asked for starter and main course to come together as one of us wanted starters and no main course, they didn’t listen, not a biggy we ate separately. The food was bland, very little taste but not inedible so on the whole disappointed with...the experience.More

A romantic setting with white table cloths overlooking the atmospheric river. Considering this restaurant is only 300 metres from the market that is abundant with the most appealing fresh salad leaves, vegetables fish and meat there is no excuse that the food was poor. My...husband described his sweet and sour chicken as on a par with a down market UK Chinese take away. My chicken curry was marginally better but not authentic to Vietnamese food. The wine was warm. Our tour guide had recommended this restaurant which suggests that it may suit a less adventurous foody.More

No idea but it’s very interesting on the riverside . There are street and riverside entrances.

We had dinner here one evening and lunch another day but probably best to wait for the restaurant to reply in case their opening times are season-related.
