Are you hungry? Because if you are going to Vcafe you might want to skip eating for a few days. Huge food with a great taste. You can enjoy the great atmosphere and music. I can recommend this restaurants and would go there again. Just ask taxi driver where the Vcafe is, cross the lake and turn left...there it is.

Such good music and food. The owner was such a funny guy! He has been in Vietnam for a long time and he taught me everything I needed to know about the rest of my trip! He is also a very great guitarist! There were other great musicians, local and otherwise, performing as well. This place is world class!

Visited the V Cafe Dalat because the TA rating was so good. I was disappointed, the atmosphere was wonderful and the staff friendly, however the food was a disappointment. Meat was very under done and not seasoned, covered in a sauce that had obviously split. I returned the meal and asked for sauce to be on the side that returned... More

Very eclectic menu, everything I tasted was nicely done: salads, entrees, and desserts. And prices are reasonable. Live music is basic but very nicely done. Unfortunately it ends early; get there by 8 for best show.

I came this reataurant for dinner, I felt comfortable with the warmly service, nice staff over here. Good Westerner food with orginal flavor as well as some Vienamese food. Moreover, the live music, i think it's blue, jazz, rock n roll , really great for dinner out.

Dalat is a sleepy picturesque town in the central highlands of Vietnam, with colonial architecture and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the country. So you may expect early nights and traditional local food, which of course can be found; however when the serenity and tranquility becomes too much you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that...

For everones sake I hope our experience was a one off. We decided to have dinner as TA reviews were pretty good. Nothing exciting jumped out on the menu and we noticed the price was almost double what we have been paying elsewhere in Dalat. The waitress was friendly enough without speaking much English and we had just ordered and... More

Visited this place on Saturday night. There was some great live music playing. Ordered a pepperoni pizza and nachos (menu is mainly western). The pizza had a nice flavor and was US style with thick crust and cheese. Nachos were deep fried and not great.
