Lovely setting for a delicious lunch

The food was excellent, the service very efficient. We tried a set lunch, and there was not a dish that wasn't beautifully presented and well prepared. Lots of variety and flavors to try.

This restaurant was recommended in guide books and by our local guide I could not believe the meal we had for less than fifty dollars including a bottle of nice wine. The service was perfect, portions large (please share!) and the food delicious. The atmosphere is very nice and if you're lucky and the weather is warm, you can eat... More

If you want to experience quality Vietnamese food in a setting of past French colonialism, this is the place to go. They have several floors with separate dining rooms and an outside dining terrace. The service is very good, although the vastness of this place sometimes makes it difficult to find a waiter to attend to your needs. The menu... More

This place was recommended by one of the high end guide books. It was our last night in Hanoi and we wanted to leave with good memories. We arrived at about 6 45 PM (without prior booking). The Au Lac House is on two floors. As we walked in the staff (including some of the cooks) were sat outside by... More

I spent a few days in Hanoi on business recently and on the final night some colleagues took me to this restaurant for a farewell dinner. It's a nice enough place, located in what I presume to be an old French colonial building. I let my colleagues pick out some dishes for us to share as they were keen for... More

My husband and I had lunch at Au Lac House as part of a day tour of Hanoi and enjoyed the set menu very much. There was plenty of variety available at a reasonable price. The service was neither rushed or slow as we only had a certain amount of time at the restaurant so that was perfect. The building... More

One of my favorite places in Hanoi, Au Lac House offers al fresco dining on a 2d floor balcony or 1st floor veranda. Of course, there are inside rooms as well, including a detached room for private groups of up to about 20. I always try for the balcony, but I have also had group functions and used the private...

Spent some time looking at places to go and found here with some good reviews so decided to give it a go. They were relatively attentive to begin with however after the initial drinks order they weren't to be seen other then stsnding around on their phones. There were at least 3 waiters standing around. When our food came we... More

Have been taken here a number of times with Clients and it's definitely one of my favourite places for lunch / dinner in Hanoi. Food is excellent, service is good and I have recommended to friends who've also enjoyed God. A little out of town but taxis see, able to find
