The ambience takes the charm and then the food. A good spread of delicious sea food.Courteous staff and moderate pricing. Good parking facilities. A great place worth to spend an evening with loved ones...

Location is great as it is next to the beach. However, you can definitely get better food with the same price elsewhere in Da Nang. It is definitely a place for foreign visitors though.

This restaurant is just next to the famous China Beach, We sat outside Al Fresco, and enjoyed the sea breeze and the vast view. The food is tastefully done up: look good, taste good.

Waitress was quite busy attending customers as she was only persons waiting on tables kept apologizing for waiting. Waitress was very friendly and when orders were served and waitress asked how...

Food was good fresh seafood. Crabs were excellent (little overcooked), and clams were delicious. Hot pot was a little flavorless, and the oysters were only okay. Greatest part is that you can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the ocean. My colleague loves this place... I'm not sure I'd return.

Stopped by for lunch, ordered fried rice and French fries. French fries served first, began eating them when after half a dozen we found a shrimp/prawn at the bottom of the dish. After spitting out a mouthful of potato I took the plate to the waitress who had served it and explained that we were vegetarians and that we had... More

Right on China Beach at sunset. Beautiful! The food was ok. It certainly was not outstanding. I would probably not return, however, for $20 we got mackerel in ginger, calamari and seafood fried rice - washed down with a Tiger beer! The service was good and friendly; even though we were each limited in our ability to communicate, the service... More

I visited this restaurant by myself. The first impression, it's like Chinese restaurant, 2nd impression, not quite various menu, 3rd impression, does not worth to pay taxi fare. Staff cannot speak english so you should prepare to communicate for the orders. Not quit clean, not economic dishes as well. 혼자 방문했는데 별로에요. 메뉴도 다양하지않고 음식점이 깨끗하지도. 직원이 친절하지도 않습니다. 리조트에서... More

My family and I sat outside near the beach. The atmosphere was relaxing, and the food was excellent. I highly recommend the place, as it serves both Western and Vietnamese food.

A fine dinning beachfront restaurant with great seaview, especially from the terrace, and elegant decor. Guests can step down to the sandy beach from the terrace. We mainly serve live & freshest seafood, and a short Western Menu. Many consider us the "best in town." We are conveniently located on the seaside street stretching from Danang to Hoi An. Our past guests have said of our restaurant, "Fabulous place, definitely a "must see & visit", delicious cuisine, smart staff."
