Great little cafe

Nice little cafe with a view of the cathedral. Menu has a good mix of western and Asian dishes. Coffees were also nice. Free wifi, comfortable couches and a cozy atmosphere. We had lunch here one day and then came back just for coffees the next day. The second floor is no smoking as well so good... read more

We had lunch here one day and then came back just for coffees the next day. The second floor is no smoking as well so good place for non-smokers.

Yes it does have a bit of charm with the decor and the view to the cathedral from the first floor, but our food was quite average and having visited other cafes we felt this one felt short. Was it a good stop around the cathedral area?sure...would we go again?probably not.

Excellent little restaurant in a very historic part of the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Located across the street from the Big Church, the food is great and the atmosphere is really laid back and friendly. They have a great selection of food choices--the one's my family and I had (we ate there twice during our five day stay) were tasty... More

Nice, simple eating joint near to the cathedral. Bacon and eggs for breakfast and the hot mocha is great. Good service and go upstairs for the best view.

We loved La Place. Great location, great food. We liked the fact they mentioned on the table mats that the food was made with clean water and msg free.

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
