Since Mr Kim handed over to his son the restaurant became a mess. Unfriendly staff, they don't want to serve what you order. Bad English. At my last visit I was deeply unsatisfied.

This restaurant has great atmosphere and French music of the last fifty years. The fellow who runs this restaurant used to be a cook for the French army several decades back but he has not lost his touch. Great location and friendly ambience with quality food and drink at economical prices. Went back three times during the week we stayed... More

Mr. Kim was so friendly and made us feel right at home. He had this adorable journal that travelers from around the world have signed when they visit his restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the view of the water was very pretty!

They serve the traditional Hoi An dish the 'White Rose', and do it very very well. They have a set menu sometimes, this is excellent if you want to try several local dishes. The chef was energetic and helpful and very creative if given the time. Go at lunch when it is not as busy, and ask them to make... More

We loved the food here! So much we had to visit a few times. The banana pancakes were the best I had in Vietnam. We then went back for afternoon tea. We had the wontons and the white rose, so delicious. Mr Kim the owner was also super friendly! The location by the river side is also an awesome spot.

I first discovered Cafe des Amis of Mr kim 20 years ago when i was backpacking as students in Hoi An. It is not often that I remember a place that long, so you can imagine how special experience must have been then. As I recollect it, it was as much the food, as the atmosphere by the river as...

Attracted to this 13 seat cafe on waterfront by the owner Mr Kim, we sat down for a cool drink in the heat. We then decided to eat and were amazed at the delicious food we chose - White Rose and Wontons like you have never eaten before.

I happened to walk past Cafe does Amis and was drawn in by the great jazz music. So glad I went in because I met the owner/chef Mr. Kim who is delightful with his interesting stories of cooking in Europe and I ate the best Pho I have had in Vietnam (for just 60D which is quite cheaper than many...
