Love their snails cooked in garlic butter!

Went there with 2 other friends for dinner and ordered the snails. The taste is superb! Love their food, service were okay but the pricing is very steep. I would revisit again next visit but probably just once due to the high priced. It is a good restaurant to visit as a couple.

We headed here for lunch and decided to eat outside and take in the scenery and hustle bustle that Hanoi has to offer . We ordered 2 salads which both came in reasonable time and the service was impeccable to be fair . However the original Caesar Salad consisted of 1 YES 1 anchovy ... 1 in a 5 *... More

Enjoyed an excellent dinner here as part of a business trip. Arrived early (18:30) due to the fact that we had a show reservation for later. Choose the 3-course degustation which was excellent throughout with wonderfull preperations (a ceviche over watercress), absolutely stunning fennel smoked prawns and a very balanced dessert of ginger ice cream, pineapple and coriander soup. Amazing... More

Every time I go to Hanoi, I try to pay a visit to Le Beaulieu. I have never been disapointed by the Food and wine. Atmosphere is good. Perfect to bring a date but you can also have business diners. I took 4 suppliers once and they really enjoyed it.

We were a group of 31(originally 28 added by 3 on arrival) and requested pre-arranged seating of 3 tables. Staff were inflexible though the restaurant was less than half full even with our group. Service was anything but good; with the staff generally inflexible, uncooperative and unfriendly. Pre-ordered food instructions from the restaurant's menu were wrongly implemented; and were denied...

A few years ago we had a memorable meal here and were looking forward to a repeat. On a Saturday night this beautiful room was almost empty. My cocktail, Jasmine, was one of the best. The bread was cold. The lobster bisque, made at the table, was excellent, but the onion soup was bland. The snails in garlic butter were... More

It was our last night in Hanoi and my husband and I decided to try Le Beaulieu for dinner. The menu was impressive as was the wine list. We started with a tomato/bocconi salad which was amazing and also a prawn ravioli which was also amazing. I had decided to be very extravagant and order Lobster Thermidor as 1) it... More

instead of taking time for the large buffet, we wanted to have pastries and coffee. No problem. The bread basket had wonderful French delights and the French press coffee was delicious. Let us get to sight seeing quickly. And better and cheaper than the French bakery north of the lake.
