We stopped at the Before and Now restaurant for a cocktail after a long day walking in old town Hoi An. We were drawn in by 2 for 1 specials.

We went for a walk in the old centre of Hoi An, looking foor a place to eat with readonable prices. We ordered Chicken Cordon Bleu and Pasta Carbonara. It was heavenly good! If you're around you should defenitley visit this place and I recommend choosing a table on the upper floor with a nice view on the streetlife!

Nice standard food with decent size helpings. Nothing mind blowing but pretty good. The drinks and cocktails were strong which was great and there was a pool table and good family vibe. A little expensive.

Had a nice mango juice and desert here. The lemon tart was good. My wife had the almond chocolate tart which was very rich and smooth. A great place to have a sweet!

Stopped in here for coffee and cake whilst wandering around the old town this morning. We had walked past in the evening and commented on how amazing the cakes looked on display. This didn't disappoint!
