I had eaten here on a previous trip and was looking forward to returning. It didn't disappoint. One can eat really badly in Vietnam but this is an exception. Don't miss it.

Recommended through Lonely Planet. Great quality fresh food in a fantastic little space. Common to find a line waiting for a table - persist as the turn over is very fast. Papaya salad, morning glory and the mackerel were highlights. Made multiple trips to Mermaid...More

I was recommended by my hotel to try this restaurant but I could not find it. Twice I went there and there was no such restaurant. A check with Morning Glory (another restaurant by the same owner), Mermaid is closed permanently.More

The Mermaid is opposite the markets...I had the whole grilled squid for lunch with a cold local beer. The squid was spicy and melted in your mouth

The food is as authentic as you would find on the streets of Vietnam. The pricing was on the higher end for restaurants in the area.

We ate there once during our stay in Hoi An. The restaurant itself is pretty busy with visitors. The service was quick and fast. The food was good. Portions were on the smaller side. The pricing was on the higher end for Vietnam.

.....this is the most wonderful fresh cooked food you could experience. Fresh caught fish served on a banana leaf with the the purest of natural flavours. It's a while since I was there & last time the wine menu was a tad sad but sacrifice...More
