My Girlfriend and I visited this restaurant as we were staying in the area. The food was really nice, we had the spring rolls, aubergine and garlic and grilled fish to share. The total bill came to around 200k dong. The service was quick and very friendly. I would highly recommend if you're in the area :)

Food here was okay. We just had fried noodles and fried rice which were alright. Nice view out over the paddy fields though

One of the best meals in our 8 days in northern Vietnam. We were two families with eight children and everyone was happy! Try the goat.

We had a wonderful papaya salad, eggplant and chicken and with a french-speaking service, really nice. Might be one of the best restaurant in Tam Coc !

Dined last night in the Bamboo Bar and Restaurant. Had the set menu which comprised 7 separate dishes. After 10 days in Vietnam, 3 meals in restaurants per day, this was the most enjoyable and tasty meal to date. Had chicken and port dishes, the latter almost melted in the mouth. Nice authentic and comfortable environment. Very efficient service with... More

A friend and I arrived here after a long bike trip, it was past 10pm on a week night and the chef had gone home but the owner Thai and his wife graciously offered to cook for us, the food was amazing and we got chatting to Thai throughout dinner, he is a truly kind and generous man, he fed...

We came to the restaurant after reading here good reviews. We are vegetarians so we started with the spring rolls cause after a month in Vietnam they are always good, papaya salad-for the same reason and rice with veggies. The food was not fresh, not so tasty and very small portions. Its the First time we really were not happy... More

Certainly a good place! The plates are almost all coming with rice so it makes it pretty cheap! The honey pork being one of the speciality is awesome but you should try the fish with Samba sauce. Even better.

For somewhere with such a good TripAdvisor rating I expected a lot better to be honest! My goat 'speciality' was tough and I wasn't a fan of the flavouring. We also felt oddly ignored by the staff who by and large (with the exception of one lady) did not seem particularly welcoming or keen to ensure we enjoyed our visit... More
