We stopped in just for coffee in the late morning and we told them our intentions and they quickly seated us even though they were busily preparing for the noon rush. The coffee was good but expensive by Hoi An standards. This is a restaurant that serves large tour groups and perhaps it is best to leave it to large... More

You come for river view and breezes, and we benefited from a table by river itself. Service ok, food above average. We arrived early which was good as coach loads of tourists came later.

Location by the river and the lanterns make this an inviting place. But...Servings were huge, chicken was dry and flavours were very bland. Don't expect vegetables with your chicken and cashews - take the menu literally!

Saw this restaurant while on a walk so reserved a table at the front overlooking the river. Quiet and classy. Food was excellent and service good. Thought it may have been more expensive than it was. We shared the wonton and rice pancake entrees. Both fabulous and would return to have these again. Walk along the river near the restaurant.... More

A beautiful setting right on the river with a varied menu. Although it did not seem to be frequented by locals, the food and service were excellent. We enjoyed fresh squid ( grilled and fried ) and a fresh morning glory/garlic salad. Would highly recommend if looking for a more fine dining experience. Full Bar and very good service!

Great food with the usual great customer service from staff in Vietnam. The setting was brilliant overlooking the river. Only drawback was I saw one of the staff, a young guy who looked like he had a chefs hat on him, come out of the toilet without washing his hands??

The restaurant itself is beautiful, very nice view by the river. We found this place on TripAdvisor, the food is okay, not very tasty as we expected. We ordered a won ton soup, which has ridiculously small won ton filling ( as big as your thumb nail) with big sheets, never seen something like this. Crispy duck with tamarind sauce... More

Family and I enjoyed dinner here at a table overlooking the river. Extensive menu provides good choice of local and international foods with a good wine selection too. Outdoors is well protected from rain showers and is festooned with lovely lanterns that provide a beautiful backdrop. Service was efficient and courteous despite the restaurant being pretty busy. Food was really... More
