A simple and honest meal

We have just eaten at the Chocolate Cafe and opted for the Vietnamese menu, which seemed to please the waitress we spoke with. We enjoyed fresh spring rolls, the chicken and ginger clay pot as well as wok fried vegetables with soy sauce. Whilst not large serves, they were tasty and enough with rice... read more

Encouraged to give this place a chance from some of the better reviews on TripAdvisor, I wish I hadn't bothered. First impressions where the somewhat chic French interior, and the eerie ambience without any music at all. 2 of us dined and started with the deep fried vegetarian spring rolls which were decent. This was followed by 3 other dishes... More

The coffee is great, the seats are great, the food is great. The prices are cheap and the service is best in town. Go here first for a benchmark.

One among many restaurants located on the main touristy street. The place was full though we ate at a much better place on the opposite side. The owner/cooks daughter decided to join us.a cute kid of about 4-5. While it's called chocolate, the cafe server all kind of food.

We stopped for a cup of tea & the service was rather disappointing. The waiter tried to be funny, but the joke was very inappropriate.

After reading a lot of positive reviews we stopped by mid afternoon for a snack. Ordered the nachos and a Vietnamese chicken salad. The nachos are potato chips with cooked mince and onions with very little cheese. No flavoring either. Had to ask for salt and pepper. The VN salad was better but less than spectacular. Mango smoothie was average... More

We just had one night stay in Da Lat but we had 2 meals at the Chocolate Cafe. The first time when we came in, we were glad to be welcome by all the staff, they were young and friendly. All the staff tried their best to treat their customers and to let all of us enjoy the time there.... More

Went to Chocolate as the hostel we stayed at recommended it, and couldn't had been happier! The food was delicious. I had a chicken and lemongrass claypot for my main course, and shared the chocolate fondue with my friend. We actually came back the next day to have the chocolate fondue again, and both times it was more than worth... More
