Here for a group lunch on an organised tour. Food was excellent and the restaurant has a lovely location on the river.

Nice looking restaurant, food was good with big portions but it didn’t have a wow factor.
Staff were nice.

We were a party of 8 we arrived late for our booking due to issues with taxis but this wasn’t a problem.

Every dish we ordered was delicious and very well cooked, the quality of the meat and fish was superb. There was a huge choice on the menu, I had the Pomelo and Prawn Salad to start which was delicious, the pomelo was so sweet, for main the cheesy oven baked pork with mustard sauce was amazing, the sweetest, juiciest pork ever and we are not easy to please as foodies and restaurant owners ourselves we are very critical.

The quality of the spring rolls was amazing so light and fresh.

The service was delightful, fast, efficient and unusual for Vietnam everything came when it should, all starters at the same time and same with main courses.

If you like good food you will love this place, very high quality ingredients cooked well, this looks like one of the few places in Hoi An that has a properly trained chef.

The price was astounding, we had 3 courses and mainly more expensive dishes from the menu (sea bass, meat etc.) and several cocktails and gin and tonics and the bill was £14 per head, some might think that is expensive for Vietnam but the quality was European high end food and the portions are large and less than half the price of similar quality restaurants in HCMC.

The desserts were equally good, flambé banana, passion fruit cheesecake, mango and sticky rice, all delicious.

Fantastic little cafe that doesn’t allow street pan handlers in (so very first world problems, I know, but quite irritating at times...)

Lovely atmosphere with the vibe covered garden and lanterns all lit up at night, eighth on the river.

The food and service were amazing. The staff were lovely, great mix of westernised dishes and beautiful Vietnamese food.

Highly recommend this place!!!!

This place is without a doubt my all time favourite throughout the whole country.
The food is second to NONE.
I’ve tried many things from the menu and eaten with many friends here so have been lucky enough to see a lot of their options - but my all time #1 recommendation is the duck breast.
The restaurant itself is just beautiful - the artwork is superb - the courtyard is quaint and peaceful and the staff are so lovely and friendly - really professional and nothing you ask is too much for them.
Brilliant happy hour discounts on drinks in the afternoon after a long day of shopping.
This restaurant MADE my holiday time here in Hoi An and definitely should not be missed !!!
100000 out of 10!!
