A great mix of Western favorites (including some of the best Mexican and tastiest pizzas in Vietnam), a smattering of Asian dishes, including a few Vietnamese all-time favorites (pho, spring rolls, etc.) Vegetarian? You'll enjoy a full selection of Vegetarian dishes, including some great curries. Good selection of local and imported beers and wines. (No MSG added to our food.)We've added a great breakfast menu, and are opening up early for travelers wanting to get an early start before heading out to see Dalat.Nightly live music - acoustic, rock 'n' roll, blues, folk, country, international.Free WIFI.Delivery within Dalat!Smoking section outdoors.

Went to V for dinner on a Saturday night and sat out on the patio. We ordered the King's Cheese Platter, and spent the next 10 minutes in heaven. There was SO MUCH cheese, it could have been an entire meal. The staff was friendly and the service was fast. I had the veggie lasagna -- so good. We all... More

The live music singer sings really well. The food don't quite match up to that standard though. The sliced banana with homemade yoghurt was horrible. I couldn't swallow the banana. Don't order that if ur there. We ordered the beef goulash too. It is very starchy though. I guess it's because the type of potatoes usually used is not available... More

This is a great place for anyone seeking decent to eats in Dalat. I had quesadilla and mac 'n cheese and both were pretty good and excellent considering that traditional western ingredients aren't so easy to come by in Dalat. The almosphere is very nice with soft blues music before a local musician comes and plays excellent soft rock on... More

We came late on a rainy weeknight, yet it was still busy so it was apparent V Cafe is doing very well for itself. Although the staff was friendly and live music at V Cafe was good, we were a bit let down with the food. We started with the creamy mushroom soup, which was the highlight of the meal.... More

Amazing 'homely' food - we tried the lasagne and beef goulash. We could tell both dishes were home-made too. Also quick and friendly service and a lovely ambience/decor, would definitely recommend!

Let's face it, Dalat might not be as exciting or as interesting as you had hoped. For us, this was the case. We were tired after almost two weeks of long-distance travelling in Vietnam. and an acquaintance had strongly recommended visiting Dalat. We weren't sure exactly why. But our visit to the V Cafe was one of the highlights of... More
