Description: 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!

I've been studying in Hoi An for three months, and Viet Lac is definitely my favourite restaurant. Everything is very clean and the service is great, not to mention the amazing food. I would highly recommend the Carbonara (only $5), the Herb Roasted Chicken Breast, the Sesame Crusted White Tuna With Wasabi Sauce and both the Mediterraniian and the Ceasar Salad. When it comes to dessert, the Passion Fruit tarte is really good, and Lac Viet also have really good western coffee.

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 is a bit of a hidden gem - from the street the restaurant looks empty but don't be put off, make your way to the back by the river and it's a lovely setting for lunch or dinner.

The food is good, arrives hot and mostly at the right time (which is saying something for Hoi An restaurants). Viet Lac has a proper kitchen rather than being someone's living quarters which means they can produce better quality food than most we tasted in our 2 weeks in Vietnam.

Vietnamese and Western dishes, all done well and in a lovely setting by the river. Recommended.

After Anne and Scott go, I come back again. But I was wrong, a few friendly staff was also gone. I ordered hot Cappuccino but served in a glass without handle, and it wasn't hot.
