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

The food here is great! So far the best meal I've had in Vietnam so far! I doubt it will be beaten. The service was faultless. Even though there was only 4 patrons dining in total, they still had live music being played, which I found very cool! The music was great! If I was in Dalat long enough, I... More
