6 course meal was excellent---a little pricey but the food quality was great. Food was French / Vietnamese fusion and portions were quite small---but this was overcome by the quality and taste of the food. don't come here for Vietnamese food though, come for the gourmet experience

We made a reservation for dinner, which wasn't necessary as it turned out as the restaurant was quite empty on a Wednesday night. In fact we only did so because we inquired about vegetarian options and were advised to book in advance so the chef could be more prepared. The dinner was lovely, starting with a complementary entree on the... More

I have spent a great moment! Do you want to know the menu? Clams with curry sauce and artichokes, seabass with a mango jam... Delicious. Original, the Chief is an artist! You should make your own experience. The design of the restaurant is perfect! What can we wish else?

Our friends suggested La Verticale as they had enjoyed lunch there last year. Of the entrees, one dish was quite enjoyable, one lack lustre (bland),and the fish dish was slightly off. Unfortunately the mains were worse. Three of us had veal and all three foundthe veal tough and chewy. The fourth prawn and rice dish was over cooked and unappealing.... More

This was such an amazing experience. I was shocked to read other travellers poor reviews, I wouldn't be put off by them. When we arrived, we were greeted and seated upstairs straight away. The menu was explained to us - there were 4 options, we chose the 6 course tasting menu. Every course we had was absolutely delicious. Then we... More

We booked dinner for two and were disappointed with the ambience, hygiene and food. My chop stick had woodworm for chrissakes! The menu was pretentious and over priced and the waitress was inhospitable, even forgiving her poor English. The attempt to be artistic and creative on the plate was at the expense of taste, flavour and fullsomeness. We were not... More

We went because this was touted as the best restaurant in Hanoi. It wasn't bad - just nothing special. Had the tasting menu. Service was friendly and attentive. I would not have guessed this was the best restaurant in Hanoi.

We booked a table at the window through our hotel which worked out perfectly. The food was excellent if you dare some interesting spice combinations. I liked it a lot. The rooms have seen better times and the waiters could be trained a bit better. However they were helpful enough. The food was very good value on money (we had... More

We arrived 15 minutes early at 6.45 and were seated in a small room with two other tables which were soon filled. We ordered the 6 course with wine. Service was non existent as I had to request that our wine be refilled on 3 occasions. After 2 1/2 hours we had made it to the 3rd course when my... More
