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

I loved this place. It was so much fun. The owner knows a lot about the town and he is fun to talk to. He also has great entertainment and a great menu and bar. Highly recommended!

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.

We spent a lovely evening at the V cafe, enjoying the live music and the delicious food, which was excellent value for money. The portions were so large I didn't have room for a dessert-and that's unheard of! The staff were friendly and helpful, calling a taxi for us when we left and explaining to the driver where we wanted... More

The 'Big Taco' was not as described, good flavours and good quality but I was still hungry after the skinny little wrap that landed on my plate. Not good value for money. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere with some good photography and music to suit the surrounds.

Although the place is clean and well decorated and the staff were lovely, the food was awful! I had the cannelloni (the daily special) which had no flavour and the consistency of gloop. My boyfriend had a pizza (safe choice you might think...) but it came topped with hair and one slice was filled with a piece of sharp plastic.... More

If you are in Dalat don't miss that place. Lasagna and chocolate brownie are the best in Vietnam. Couple can eat there for 300k vnd including beverages. If you like live music there is a brilliant guitar player! Worth a visit for sure!
