We had a Vietnamese dinner and honestly not so great. We had much better food in other places. They offer more western food than Vietnamese but we didn't try that. Place is very cosy but very overpriced.

The food here is consistently delicious! The owners wife is a fantastic chef and everything Vcafe serves is well executed. The menu is a nice mix of Mexican, American, comfort food, casual plates and Vietnamese favorites. The owner is a multi talented musician and will often step in and jam with the performers, of which there are a nice mix,... More

The service is one of the best I've seen in Vietnam. The food is very good, but the main thing about the place is its great atmosphere. Recommended!

Went here for food and it was ok. Nothing special. One of us ordered a milkshake and it was disgusting. Not really sure why this place is so highly rated. There are lots of better places in the area.

Loved the live music, playing acoustic guitar singing old hits each night. Recommend the beef lasagne and the creme caramel, chocolate brownie also delicious. Ate here twice during our time in Dalat. Affordable, about 400K for two people eating a main, dessert and a drink each.

This is a great place for anyone seeking decent western 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 to dalat to get away from the hustle and bustle of the more famous places in Vietnam and weren't expecting to find any nightlife, in someone told us if you're going to dalat take a book. So we were pleasantly surprised when we came across V cafe. We were looking for somewhere to eat but we came away... More

We were only in DaLat for two days, but it think we went to V Cafe about 5 times. Conveniently located across from our tourist office, we came before and after our trips.
