Situated at the tail end of the tourist strip. This little gem of a restaurant doesn't look much on the outside but once you enter you'll experience quick, smiley service, a varied menu and greatly competitive prices. Being a fish and meat lover the meat stuffed squid sounded just too good to ignore. I wasn't disappointed as the heap plate... More

We found the food here fresh and tasty. The staff were friendly and attentive and spoke really good English. I had pumpkin soup followed the fish and it was lovely. The idea of creating 'art' whilst waiting to eat kept my partner quiet too! I would definitely recommend a meal here.

Restaurant is nice, but food really bad. Rosted chicken was fried with a spicy sauce on the top, mushpotatoes still frozen inside. Overpriced for that food. If you are looking for cooker I'm available..

The cafe í small but the staff were great and found room for us - despite us bringing the rain in with us! The food was great, and unlike mót vietnemese restaurants, the... More

Nice everything except the food. Enchilada was not an enchilada. The dough around it was raw. Beefsteak was too salty to eat. Portions small. Lonely planet strikes again.

Personally: Food was excellent, they had special breakfast (called the "Dali") that I get hungry thinking about right now. Personally I feel this particular Art Cafe was started with good intention. I have checked out all 3 art cafe restaurants... the first one (a few years back), this one "Art Cafe" and the News and New Art Cafe. Before you... More

I enjoyed the overall look of this place and I enjoyed my beef stuffed with cheese with mashed potatos and veggies. Prices are good. It is worth it to stop and have dinner here.

This restaurant looked really too posh for us backpackers and abit expensive, but when you got in there the service was excellent and the food was good viettnamese food. The best thing about this good atmospheric place was the value because the excellent service and food you would assume more. We paid 131,000 dong for a beer, a large water... More

Down the windy street at back of hill in central dalat. Find it! Just near Dalat Easy Rider office. Great food with some clever twists and quirky options many of which have been developed with a definite artist eye plus the owner painting an incredible artwork at your table was a unique experience.
