Although the place is clean and well decorated and the staff were lovely, the food was awful! I had the cannelloni (the daily special) which had no flavour and the consistency of gloop. My boyfriend had a pizza (safe choice you might think...) but it came topped with hair and one slice was filled with a piece of sharp plastic.... More

If you are in Dalat don't miss that place. Lasagna and chocolate brownie are the best in Vietnam. Couple can eat there for 300k vnd including beverages. If you like live music there is a brilliant guitar player! Worth a visit for sure!

I think the main problem of V-Cafe that it is defined as an allround-entertainment place: Food, music and cafe, Thats the reason why all the components are below the local average. No good coffee, bad food and an overcrowded Live-music resto for a very high price. Last but not least, I must admit, that this place is somehow famous in... More

After a couple of weeks of Vietnamese street food we decided to take an easy option for our second and last night in Dalat. Let's face it, there aren't many great food options in town. Why?? But V Cafe did the job. Expensive for Vietnam but still very cheap really: less than £5 each for main course, cheeky chips and... More

They have nice western foods. Had tomato soup and hamburger for lunch and they were all good. Don't remember the name but had a salad with lotus root inside and highly recommend it. We were there for lunch but seemed like it would have better atmosphere at night.

We had 2 fun nights here and met some good people. While we have been here they have and an oozy duo playing, Peter and Paul. Good blokes and good music. It's a busy little place so you might have to wait for a table, we just sat at the bar and had a few drinks until a table was... More
