After a long day of travelling we stumbled over this place on a sultry Sunday evening. The menu is not cheap but good value for what you get and overlooking the church from the outdoor terrace was just perfect. Papaya salad was really good!

We had breakfast here- the food was good (although nothing mind blowing) and a great setting right by the cathedral. In our opinion, our iced black coffees were much too sweet and our 'freshly' squeezed orange juices tasted suspiciously watered down...

From the second floor the restaurant has great views of the cathedral and a small balcony you can sit out on. There are neat propaganda posters on the wall too. Staff was helpful and attentive. The food good but I feel like widely available throughout the city.. probably for cheaper however as there isn't as much hype about the place.

The food was fairly priced and really good! I had a mango mint smoothie which was outstanding and a mango chicken coconut dish which was equally good. The place had air-conditioning and had great views on the second floor of the cathedral. My friend had the chicken cordon-bleu and loved it. And it was right down the road from our... More

This cafe was right near where we stayed in Hanoi, and we went there for lunch and breakfast the following day. Food and drinks were tasty, and staff were very friendly. They even had no problem when we asked to pay separately. Would definitely recommend here for breakfast or light bites.

Coffee was excellent and having air-conditioning was a big plus. We had many delicious meals and the variety was excellent.

Dropped in after arriving on the morning train and too early to check in for my hotel. The dish consisted of a toasted half-baguette , grilled tomato, a small crispy hash brown, a slice of bacon AND two of the best fried eggs ever! They were runny to the point of perfection so that you could sop it up with... More

We were quite disappointed with the food. The fresh spring rolls lacked flavour and the chicken breast in the Mango Chicken was dry and the sauce tasted more like one out of a can. Overall not a great dining experience. I absolutely did not like the paper tablecloth they put on. They should rather do without them.

This has been my go to place in the Old Quarter for 6 years now. The staff are super duper freindly and always try their very best. I love that they don't use MSG and they have a good choice of food and drinks on their menu.They could perhaps add a new dish as a special for a little more... More
