La place is a good place even for a local. You can have a great view of beautiful St. Joseph's cathedral from balcony. You can't find a true local food here, the restaurant cooks local food in the way more suitable for foreigner. Western food also good here. Highly recommend for everybody.

Lovely little restaurant overlooking a small square. We ate here often and they were soon reserving us a table on the balcony without us asking. Food is very reasonably priced and tasty. Coconut chicken curry is good. Service friendly and efficient.

La Place is a charming restaurant in the Old Quarter, across the street from beautiful St. Joseph's cathedral. Wait for a table on the 2nd floor balcony (there are only 3). Since I live in Vietnam I wanted Western food for a change; I ordered the Caesar Salad, and I think it was one of the best I've ever had;... More

Another recommendation from the guide (he did better this time). It’s a shopfront café with a couple of floors (and a balcony) upstairs just opposite St Joseph’s cathedral. I had a Mango crepe and my partner had fresh spring rolls. Both were excellent although I thought mine would be some sort of mango salsa wrapped in a crepe. It was... More

Read about this cafe in a Lonely Planet guide and figured I'd give it a try. Just by the cathedral, it's split over three levels. Second level is a great spot, with a little balcony with views over the cathedral. Comfy seats inside, nice decoration with a really nice tiled floor. I had the Vietnamese iced coffee and the breakfast... More

Underrated place with only a few patrons during a Monday afternoon. Would have sat at the balcony if not for the hot humid weather. But inside seating wasn't too shabby as well! Had a iced Vietnamese coffee and just enjoyed the afternoon with the view of St Joseph Cathedral. Staff were friendly and didn't bother us much even thought we... More

We were recently in Ha Noi to finish off our European holiday. We have been to La Place a number of times and love everything about it. We look forward to being there again next year.

Not sure why people rave about this place in terms of view or atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and tried their best but their coffee latte was undrinkable, terrible taste.

This is a really nice restaurant opposite St Joseph's Cathedral. It's open all day and serves a variety of food both Asian and western style, including dishes suitable for vegetarians. The 2nd floor balcony is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Service was really good and the food was really good, well prepared and very... More
