We found this restaurant while wandering along the river front, and were so glad we did. It was the best meal we had in our five nights in Hoi An. There is a pleasant garden to sit in, an innovative cocktail menu and the food is above the ordinary. First, the cocktails: an inspiring list containing lots of fruit and herbs as well as the usual mojito varieties. My 'tropical chill' was a dream of rum, lime, mango, mint, honey and passionfruit - so delicious! Then the food - also an imaginative menu, and everything we tried was tasty, fresh and visually beautiful. We had a chicken with red and white cabbage and herbs salad, a vermicelli with pork and pickled garlic (which was excellent) and a prawn and squid stir-fry. Great food.

Service was good too - not overly effusive (and we liked that), just attentive enough. And we paid a bit more than normal for a meal in Vietnam at about 800,000 VD (three mains plus our beers and cocktails), but we felt it was good value for such a lovely meal. Recommended.

This was our favourite restaurant during our 7 day visit to Hoi An. The cuisine was creative and on our two vists found the quality to be consitstantly of a high standard. The fish was always fresh. The ambiance was very pleasant and the staff friendly. Of course it was very slightly more expensive than run of the mill places but at around USD 35 for two including drinks we found it very fair.

The restaurant is geared towards tourists, with prices marked up to match. The pricing seemed inconsistent for some dishes too. Food was OK, but service wasn't as good as other restaurants (the waitress had served noodles and left before we could ask for chopsticks/spoons, and forgot our beers too). Even though the restaurant is beautifully decorated besides the river, we would probably choose to eat somewhere else in the future.

All the food was recommended, the pork shoulder and the banh mi pretty good.

You can have a great view to the river while having a drink or having dinner

This being a restaurant in Hoi An it goes without saying that the location is awesome and the place loaded with ambiance. They have the Vietnamese staples on their menu but also a number of creative, less common foods. I had a rice noodle salad to start with and a tofu banh mi. Honestly, I had far better food in a lot more places in Vietnam than at Mai Fish's. In addition, the food was pretty much priced according to Western standards. So compared to all the other places I ate at you can skip this restaurant. It's gentrified Vietnamese without the Asian-third-world appeal and vibe.
