Delightful Meal and Setting - A good choice and value

Had lunch with a colleague over business discussions. The converted colonial house setting is terrific. If you can score a seat on the balcony, it adds to the experience. The menu has many choices but not so many to confuse. I ordered spring rolls which were served in a manner that i could... read more

I had dinner with friends. The food was excellent and the service first class. I would recommend to all of our friends visiting Hanoi.

Negative: First they walked is up stairs and then out on to their balcony. In my head, i was thinking oh this is nice.... More

Our party ordered a wide variety of dishes. Each was delicious. Lovely, old mansion setting. Would definitely dine here again.

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.

It took me a while to find the restuarant by walk with no map. But the minuted i walk in it was interested about the the house it self very classic and touch of frech architecture. Service was friendly (but i could not remember her name) we seated on the second floor at the terrrace area. Weather was so perfected.... More
