We had dinner here, we made a reservation as well. Upon arriving we were told that there would be a wait for a table. We ended up waiting for half an hour, which i think was a bit much especially if a reservation was made. However the food was delicious and service was excellent. We were given a ten percent...

My partner and I stayed as guests in the Hanoi Elegance hotel, so we enjoyed our breakfast every morning in the restaurant. The breakfast buffet had a good range of food to select from (and I particularly liked the chocolate mousse). I like the atmosphere of the restaurant, it's small but cosy with window views all around - I liked... More

For our last night in Hanoi we had a wonderful dinner with excellent service. It was just a short walk from our hotel. The Vietnamese dishes especially the green mango salad were a highlight.

Situated on the top floor of the Hanoi Elegance Hotel, the small, but perfectly formed dining room, has great views of the city & lake. The food we had was delicious & a little different, served in a very attractive way. We especially liked the Beef Bamboo, which was served in a bamboo stem. Service was a little nervous &... More

We struggled to find this restaurant as it is inside a hotel on the top floor and the sign outside is not very clear. However once another guest showed us the location we were very pleased we took the time to look for it! (FYI its not on a corner!) We had about 30 minutes to eat before our water... More

The breakfast buffet which is included has a nice selection of food. We didn't try the desert as we were very full of tasting almost everything else. The staff was wonderful and attentive.

The menu at this restaurant is comparable to other 'boutique' style restaurants in the neighbourhood and so is the quality which is quite good. The restaurant offers an intriguing mix of Vietnamese and French food which works really well. My steak was done precisely as should be, the green papaya salad was delicious, and the fish my partner had was... More

I visited this restaurant as it had an amazingly rating on tripadvisor. Overall the service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. However, this was let down by the food, my chicken dish was almost inedible and when We mentioned it to the waitress she simple said 'okay okay'. However to give the restaurant credit when we were given a... More
