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!

As other people have stated this is a hidden gem. We wandered in there this afternoon for a drink and ordered an iced coffee. It is the best we have had since being in Vietnam.
We decided to go back this evening for dinner and was amazed. The variety of the menu was great and we opted for Vietnamese food and was not disappointed. In fact the flavours were so good and different from anywhere else we have eaten so far.
You have to walk through the kitchen (which is spotless as is everything in the building), to the river and has very nice view and cooler than most places in Hoi An.
You can even buy a great NZ Marlborough wine for a very reasonable price.
I would highly recomend try this little gem.

Thoug the main entrance may put you off, food is excellent. Best mango smoothie ever. If you are really into vietnamese food, this is your place.

We ate here about three times, each time the service and value was excellent. This is the only place I found Rose wine in Vietnam. This was served in beautiful glasses and was ice cold. The fish cake starters were excellent as was the tenderloin (fillet) steak. Well worth a visit, it is popular with tourists and locals, and if enter from the street you go through the kitchen and can talk to the staff

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.
