Great place for dining in Hanoi!

We had a couple great meals at this rooftop restaurant. Nice atmosphere, great food, fantastic service! What more could you want? Oh yes, moderate prices, too!

It's a little more expensive but really worth it. Make sure to book. We didn't. It was booked out on a Tuesday / we got a late cancellation and were lucky to get it.

This was a return visit for my 60th birthday celebration with friends. Treat yourself and enjoy the ambience of this restaurant on the top floor of the Hanoi Elegance Diamond. This restaurant will not break the bank with an extensive range of Vietnamese and Western Cuisine. Small, intimate, simple and basic decor with views over Hanoi. The professionalism and warmth...

We decided to try Gourmet Corner based on reviews and had a pleasant evening. The food was mainly Vietnamese with a choice of western cuisine. I would say this is one of my best dinning experience in Ha Noi without hesitation.

The restaurant is part of the Elegance Hotel chain and since we were staying at the Ruby Elegance about 15 minutes by foot we were surprised that they gave us a discount. The sea bass and spring rolls were very good. The service was excellent . Attention to details is their strength like inviting us on the terrasse for a... More

The restaurant is located on the 11th floor and has pretty well unrestricted views all round. It is quite small so probably best to book. We were welcomed on the ground floor by a very cheery member of staff, ready with a joke and quick to laugh. Our chosen food was very good. Might be a bit bland for those... More

We ate breakfast here buffet style (4) people for about $50 USD. I found this place very over-priced compared to other hotels with buffets in the area. The buffet feathered about 10-12 items mostly asian not western style so much. This buffet shouldn't have cost more than $7 USD/150,000 VND. Service was okay staff spoke good English and was very...

We came here to try something different in Hanoi and we weren't disappointed. The food was just mind-blowing and the service was too. I suggest you order items from the menu that you are not familiar with because no matter what you order here its going to taste good. I ordered fish baked in banana leaf and I was amazed... More

We live in Hanoi and went to this restaurant to see if it was as good as it's reviews. The service was impeccable, unfortunately it was downhill from there. The restaurant has a very westernised menu and the Vietnamese food is also very westernised. If someone thinks they are eating anything like traditional Vietnamese food they are sadly mistaken. It...
