This place is great guys! Awesome atmosphere, fantastic food at a very reasonable price. Western and Vietnamese menu, try the chicken curry, my favorites! Great place to chill out to get some work done, using the Wifi or coming in for a few beers and a really good feed. Really friendly staff as well. And great location in the centre... More

Let's face it, Dalat might not be as exciting or as interesting as you had hoped. For us, this was the case. We were tired after almost two weeks of long-distance travelling in Vietnam. and an acquaintance had strongly recommended visiting Dalat. We weren't sure exactly why. But our visit to the V Cafe was one of the highlights of... More

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
