What attracted us to try this place was the signage outside that says "Cheap and cheerful" (something like that) The concept of the place was very nice. With different artistic displays on the tables and the walls of the restaurant. the staffs were indeed friendly and the prices are quite cheap. food was nice too. We'd like to try different... More

Great food and drinks, clean, several locations in the Old Quarter, low prices. Can't beat it as value for money.

We stopped in late one night for drinks and decided to go back again for a cheap dinner one of our nights in Hanoi. We were all a bit tired of the Vietnamese food (although we LOVED it all) and the kids wanted some Western choices, so we decided to try it for dinner since the notes of praise tucked... More

This place is good value but its a bit hit and miss food wise.We had dinner there twice, first time it was nice, kinda what you would expect for the price but second time round it was awful. The fish was stale and beef very chewy to the point where the dishes were inedible.very disappointed.

we stayed at the Hotel Eclipse and this was a great little place to head to for a quiet G&T, lunch or just a chill out time.

Delicious food, especially the fish in cream sauce (they use local fish, tastes fresh and good!), as well as the cheese steak sandwich. Beautifully decorated small cafe with an upstairs dining, but no smoking, except there's a special table outside for smokers to puff after or before dinner with their drinks (seating for two) - quite thoughtful! Serves great Vietnamese... More

We ate here for dinner, they had many promotions on drinks, 16,000 for a beer. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was pretty good, I ordered the grilled fish with rice, it was tasty but the fish was a little tough and wasn't the freshest. My husband had the steak sandwich in a baguette, it was very good... More

Came here for a quick lunch after passing by and noticing the low prices, food was nothing special , but you get what you pay for. Staff where friendly and helpful though, the food just needs a bit more work.

My husband and I both ordered a pre drink, he ordered a beer, I ordered a long island ice tea. After he'd had his second beer I was still waiting for my cocktail. He was on his third beer before I got my drink! And had to ask again!

Take it for what it is, a nice, clean and friendly place with a great atmosphere to go for lunch or dinner. Maybe just what you need if you're hankering for something other than Asian cuisine (although the standard Vietnamese fare is also pretty good).
