Good eats, good treats (for your ears)

Visited twice while in Dalat. First time for lunch. Diverse menu - American, Asian and Mexican. I had a club sandwich and they used a fried egg instead of bacon and added lettuce and I thought it was fantastic! Came with a side of fries which were also tasty.

The atmosphere was light and fun. The music was great. 2 guys playing guitar with the owner often joining in on harmonica or trumpet. The food was better than average. The pork chops were a bit too smothered with a cream gravy, but still good. Cesear's salad was very good but not exactly the real deal. We would go back.

Nothing special. Food tastes ok and the price is not bad. On the other hand, the wine is too expensive and is rubbish! You're way better off by just order a coke with you food. Won't visit this place again.

Thanks for visiting. We have many choice of wine in Vcafe, maybe you was choosing the cheap Dalat wine and aspect a super market rate? Hope you get better selection next time in somewhere else. More

We were two families with small kids having dinner at this cozy place. The food was good and at a fair price. Live music was intimate and great and not annoying.

The food was tasteless. I had the fish with vegetables and pasta and it was so disappointing. The service was ok, nothing but ordinary, and we were advised that you couldn't share beers in happy hour time?!?!? Not worthed

I really like this cafe. Breakfast is good. I had the totilla wrap off the main menu it was to die for. Dinner was steak and mash with red wine and mushroom gravy which was awesome too. Great staff very friendly. Will be back. Good for the western stomachs.no street food for me. Melbourne Australia

This was my second visit to the V Café, and there will not be a third. The food was disappointing, small in quantity, and definitely overpriced. If you're in the mood for western food and a western atmosphere, there are other places in town…

Visited for dinner in Dalat as was recommended in Lonely Planet and has live music. Food was really good and reasonably priced, including a good vegetarian section. Drinks also very nice; a good selection of cocktails and soft drinks plus Dalat wine for less than one pound! The live music really made the evening, an acoustic guitar and great voice... More

As you enter V cafe, you'll notice how small and cozy the place is... the setting is very intimate, and there is only as much space as is needed... and this makes all the difference. The little bar is a great place if you are going solo, or if you'd like a chat... the setting is quaint, with a little... More
