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.

Thought it would be a great decision to visit, it ended up pretty bad. The experiences were really not up to expectation. After I was seated, the server shared the drinks/wine list and within seconds she brought the food menu and placed them on top of drinks/wine list! Probably, the server should come back later or put the menu at... More

Unfortunately when we arrived in Hanoi I had terrible diarrhoea that I acquired in Siem Reap! Thus we wanted to go somewhere cool, comfortable and near to a loo for our first night in Hanoi. We have stayed with Sofitel previously and love their brand and thought we would give their hotel restaurant a try. We reserved a table online,... More

Went there on our last night as we wanted French food and it was excellent. we had the Australian fillet of beef served with gratin Dauphinois and beens, Hollandaise sauce, Fabulous! Very tender and big portion. Service was excellent and they have a good selection of wine by glass. Nice shoes plater too. Recommended

Amazing buffet Brunch on Sunday, amazing Oysters, Foie gras, seafood salads with grape fruit...free flow with champagne and wine with a very very reasonable price that you can not find it in the world. Service staff are very nice, friendly and attentive. Bravo!

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
