What a great place with fantastic food. We were a group of at least 10. They broke us into smaller groups sitting outside on the balcony. The food was delicious. The menu was quite varied with numerous choices. The staff was helpful and served our meals quite rapidly. Cool building!

this appeared to be a very popular restaurant. The food was very good. The atmosphere is what makes the place. You go there for fun with friends, not so much for the food.

Charming restaurant with a French flavor, especially in the decor. We had an enjoyable evening here.

Nice place - French colonial building, only 5 minutes from hotel Sunway). Large appetisers, could easily have shared one though fresh rice pancakes were delicious. Also really enjoyed main course of grilled beef with lemongrass and chilli - lots of different flavours. Found it a little expensive though probably not that bad for a city restaurant.

Au Lac House is a French home converted in to a restaurant. Staff is friendly, spoke well and our EXO guide, Mr Tung, did a good job of letting the restaurant know of our dietary preferences. We opted for Vietnamese food fish, chicken and veggies. Food was to our liking. All the herbs and fresh ingredients were washed down with... More

Excellent food and charming atmosphere, in a beautiful colonial building. Add on your list, it is definitely one of the places to visit in Hanoi when coming to dinner.

This truly great restauant with views out over the river was however disappointing when it came to the food. The pork and fish was over cooked and the vegetables were not as good as the local Vietnamise dishes we have experienced during our tour of Vietnam.

We quite enjoyed our late lunch on the verandah of this appealing restaurant. The shrimp with tamarind was memorable.
