Nice French restaurant

The French food is "above average", the wine list is quite limited and quite expensive. Service is courteous and professional; dessert is not very impressive. Excellent French bread

Very much a colonial flashback sort of experience, the menu is decidedly western, but very good.the house red wine is delicious and service is impeccable. Expensive but if you want this kind of dining experience, worth it

Very formal restaurant With fresh flowers, candlelight etc. and a fancy menue to choose from. The Food is delicious, and the desserts are huge and beautiful presented like a piece of art. The only reason why I do not give top score, is the long waiting time for the Food.The prices are really reasonable for what you get!

The decor and ambiance are unique, from another time. It is probably one of the best tables in SE Asia Food was excellent, classic but creative, French but also mixed with local ingredients. The course was spectacular and bread delicious. The wine cellar has some remarkable old vintages inherited from Sofitel.

We went for high tea at le Rabelais a couple days ago during our stay in Dalat. It was such a disappointment!

We went to Le Rabelais on Jan. 1st, for lunch. Probably the restaurant wasn't expecting any guests. But there were only 3 tables occupied in the restaurant, and we waited 30 minutes before having our drinks. My salad was forgotten. We had to complain to get the food faster (our children were starving). The quality of the food was very... More

We enjoyed our four-course meal here. Every dish was delicious. Great selection of wine and drinks. Great value for the money (entire meal for two people was a third of what we'd pay in the U.S. for the same quality and service).
