During my week in Dalat, this was by far the best restaurant I ate at and I actually ended up eating there three times, twice for dinner and once for lunch. Every meal I had regardless of whether it was Western or Vietnamese was tasty and I especially liked there crème brulee (I had it twice!). My only criticism is... More

Just took pot luck on this one, and it turned into one of the most enjoyable meals we've has in a while. The staff were very friendly and helpful indeed... The food was absolutely the best, and to top it off, there was also a live band from 7.30.p.m. The band was fantastic, and together with the food it akll... More

I decided to take a trip through Vietnam and I wanted to see things that are not in all the tourist trap books and prepacked tours. I was in Saigon for a few days and all kept hearing was when I was done with the beaches I should head to Dalat I will love it. One of the places that... More

Such a nice overall dining experience here, had such a good evening here. Live Acoustic music was actually really good, not at all annoying like live music at a small restaurant can be. Good atmosphere, low lighting and small place so felt the closest to a pub we've felt, but still a proper restaurant. Service was really good too, waiters... More

Although I went Dalat to get away from it all and relax, which for the main part I did, on my last night I decided to go in search of some action. I found it at V cafe. Excellent live music and the food was great. I had a thoroughly good time. I will definitely come back on my return... More

After 3 weeks of trekking in Vietnam I was missing Western food so I came here through a recommendation from the hotel receptionist. For locals, I can see this place as being an upscale dining scene but as a tourist this was just.. ok. Nothing particularly special about the food besides the fact that they will settle your cravings if... More

This is the first time I've given anything other than a 5 star to somewhere. I've been away a while now and having a western meal is a real treat because it gives me a taste of home. Here's a couple of reasons why I was unhappy: 1) I ordered fish and chips - the chips were cold and so... More

Live music every night is clearly advertised... 7:30pm to about 8:45 or later... We may be more expensive than some local places, but if someone is looking for a relaxed and cozy atmosphere, top notch live music, a wide range of international background music, and a genuinely diverse food and drink menu, V cafe is the place. Safe travels. More

This is such a cute cafe in a beautiful city! The food was amazing, and fairly cheap considering the location and quality. The live music gave it a really relaxed atmospher, and the singer was fantastic! The place is clean, pretty, and lit up with lanterns inside, which really adds to the romantic atmosphere! 5 STARS!
