Cosy little cafe.

Stopped in for a pre dinner drink. Left as it closed. Wonderful cosy warm atmosphere on a cool Da Lat night. Live guitar music and good food with a bottle of red. Would come again for sure.

Great food, friendly staff and a nice ambience with the live music playing in the background. Vietnamese steak with mashed potatoes was particularly nice. Cooked rare just how I like it. Would highly recommend.

Ate here with some fellow travellers on our tour. Food want anything special, but was tasty enough and not expensive. The range on the menu was extensive, although not many Vietnamese choices. Service was quick and efficient.
