Beautiful, quiet location in old colonial villa. Sitting on the patio is a great way to spend time on a Sunday afternoon! On a side street with little traffic and the patio is elevated above street level, which makes it more private. While many items on menu are expensive - wine and cheese platter especially - food we ordered was... More

Well, from the outside, fantastic, nice patio, raised above the road, up stone steps, small seating inside, nice, converted home. Food, well, another story. First looking at the menu, it's an expensive pizza / cheese / wine hang out. The rest of the food, from what I ordered and the company I was with, is frozen or boxed reheated. Couldn't... More

The food is nicely presented and of good quality. However, it sometimes felt that savings were made on the wrong ingredients. For example, a cheese plater as a starter, requires cheese to be present, not just 2 little cubes that even my son commented upon to appear to be kids-size food and whereas on gets an excess of lettuce. A... More

If you are Chinese and reading this and are indifferent or skeptical to Western food than this place is the place for you. If you are dating a beautiful Western woman or a Chinese woman who has never been beyond PIZZA HUT than this is the place for you. WHY? Simple... The menu is small enough that you will not... More

The House has been a staple of good eating in Xiamen for the last ten years, and I have been there ever since the opening. The food is great and the atmosphere sitting outside especially is amazing. The chicken over mash potatoes is my favorite.

Summer night, great company, what else? Well going to The House No.1 sounds like an awesome choice. Placed at the end of a quiet street, surrounded by trees on a typical local neighborhood, this restored old house has this great feeling of the perfect dinner with friends or simply with someone special. Carefully selected menu, nice and fresh ingredients, premium... More

I hadn't been to The House 1 in years and was a little hesitant to come after a "not too good" meal at House 2. Well I'm certainly glad we came back. Excellent meal. I had the Sea Bass on mushroom stuffed ravioli and my friend had the duck breast, we both loved our meals. The setting is like an... More

The restaurant looks great! It's an old colonial villa in a quiet street. As we had no reservation we had to eat inside which was also ok! You will find western food here with a good quality, the only thing is we had to wait a little bit too long. The reason why I don't give 4 stars the this... More

The restaurant is located in a Western style house that is nearly 100 years old so it has a lot of charm. The food was GREAT! Some of the best I've tasted. I had the ribeye and my husband had their seafood risotto. He said it was really good too. The staff was really nice and helpful. Had I known... More

Perfect Atmosphere, perfect food, excellent menu, friendly service, outdoor seating, located in the hart of Xiamen in an old European style villa, no other western restaurant within 500 Km can beat the House 1
