I found this place as I cycled around. Went in to book for dinner that night and chose the table. Beautifully illuminated in the evening and wonderful sound of bullfrogshopping so you eat !! Great meal, lovely presentation and flavours, great service. You pay for location, but worth it.

The fresh fruit juice we ordered was delicious, but more than double the price of other restaurants. The "baby corn" and chicken soup was a tasteless congealment with no baby corn in sight. The Grilled Beef in vine leaves was initially underdone (actually completely raw) and we sent it back. When it came back, it was much better and very... More

Great location and Staff.Food is ok but at least twice what you should pay for the quality. Better options further along the river.Drop the food prices down to something close to relative market value and this place would be a winner.

This restaurant has great food, a sophisticated feel but was welcoming to our 5-year-old son. I'd really recommend the fish dishes - they were gently steamed and nicely spiced. The drinks list is great too. We chose to eat at this restaurant on two of the five nights that we stayed in Hoian.

Beautiful restaurant on the water but you would never know it from the outside. It's another world inside! You walk through a massive lobby into a tropical paradise with waterfalls, bridges,flowers and frogs. The menu is traditional Vietnamese, and is presented beautifully. A wonderful romantic experience! Although I truly enjoyed it and was dining alone!

Not in the heart of the ancient town so quieter, but lovely atmosphere. Food was beautiful. Not as cheap as some restaurants but worth it for the surroundings.

There are stacks of restaurants in Hoi An but few have a more attractive location overlooking the river, just yards from the bridge. Lovely old building with pretty gardens. Fairly simple menu, not over complicated and reasonably priced. Excellent attentive staff.
