Under new management, this place is humming with Quiz nights, roast dinners and fun company and food.

I had high hopes for this place, but unfortunately it did not rock my world. We had the penne dish and grilled cheese sandwich and both were just OK. Nothing bad but nothing special either. Service was really slow the night that I went. I...More

Best food, atmosphere and location in Hoi An. Next to the river and a mix of Vietnamese cuisine with a western touch. Interesting cocktails at reasonable prices.

This new restaurant is situated close to the Cam Nam bridge and has river views from the outside terrace. The food is delicious and quite reasonably priced. It looks expensive but isn't, so don't be afraid to venture in. The family who run the place are very friendly and the beer is icy cold. A silver jewellery store also operated by family members has a display in the foyer and is very much worth checking out. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant and I wish them very well in the future. Western food is also on the menu, although I seriously suggest you try both the Soft Shell Crab and the beef La Lot...delicious!
