Great food and atmosphere--a bit expensive for Hanoi, but good wine and service. Classic upscale Vietnamese.
Our guide recommended here and it was worth the visit. Initially we were on our own, but even when a couple of tour groups came in it was still quiet. A starter each was actually too much but didn't spoil the beef and pork dishes together with loads of rice and if you like garlic try the morning glory with... More
I am still very keen on this excellent restaurant in a beautifully restored old house in the French Quarter. I've reviewed it before, but have just returned from another long stay in Hanoi and want to confirm that it's still a place I'd warmly recommend. It is NOT one of the overly decorated garish house-restaurants at the pricier end of... More
Au Lac House is a charming French colonial mansion, I believe once owned by a wealthy French doctor, but don't quote me. There is both indoor and outdoor balcony seating.

This is one of Hanoi's great restaurants; a restored French villa, beautifully decorated. It is a place for that relaxed, romantic dinner away from the usual frantic pace of Hanoi. The food is superb, classic and refined Vietnamese with maybe a hint of French to match the ambience. Service is professional and unobtrusive.
Had a nice meal with friends, but the place is mostly for the well to do locals. Tried it only once after already few days in Hanoi. I think it is quite stable for the city. We came away fairly satisfied.
This is a gorgeous French colonial mansion. We sat outside on the balcony. The cocktails went down nicely and so did all of the delicious food that we ordered. Can recommend the seafood spring rolls and banana flower salad, suckling pig, duck and eggplant and pork hotpot. Excellent service all night.
Very nice ambience, with a toutch of old days, good food, the beer very cold like it must be and very eficient and atentt staff. The rice paper rolls a must and the salad with ginger and shrimps exotic.
Nice colonial house, however very little atmosphere when we went. Food was average at best. Would recommend getting up to the old quarter and experience the street food for better food and atmosphere.
We took a table on the balcony of the beautiful old building. Seafood spring rolls, suckling pig, claypot eggplant and duck dishes were all excellent. Worth a visit while in Hanoi.
