Beautiful atmosphere, decent food

The setting of this restaurant is so beautiful and colorful that I gasped when I walked into its gate. The warm marigold color and the gorgeous interior design on the inside really feels like walking back in time! I loved it.

Lunch set menu is wonderful. It changes weekly. More then you can eat, but good quality. Dinner is also very good. It is a fine fusion between French and Vietnamese food. Service is great too.

..when you have to compare an experience in this restaurant with another in a similar one. If you pay here 855k VND (40 USDca) for a set menu and get 6 courses, presented with no hint of a smile by the staff, on a naked table where there is not even a support for chopsticks, no refreshing towel if requested...

Also had Noodle Pho (Stir fry) with great presentation, fresh ingredients was taste was just ok. This place is not a must to try but a place you can consider if... More

Average food quality and poor service quality. Ran out of rice (in a vietnamese restaurant) and couldn't get any desert after 10.30pm as kitchen closed. Overpriced for the quality despite a good and charming atmosphere. Price is for the place but food can be much nicer in some cheaper restaurant in Hanoi.

The service was very slow and my meal wasn't that good. My partner had an okay meal. The restaurant is attractive with a large balcony.

Delicious food. This restaurant is set in a restored French building in the Old Quarter. Really reasonable - $US40 for 3 people, drinks included! Would definitely recommend eating here!

More french than vietnamese apparently. Husband had the prawns - large but a bit chewy, more like lobster flesh. They were done in a smokey based sauce but enjoyed the dish. I had the beef and vegetables. The beef was pretty chewy but enjoyed the vegetables. Husband enjoyed the beer and I enjoyed the majito. Worked out about US$ 35... More
