I went with a friend for dinner and I had never even noticed the restaurant before and it isn't as frequently mentioned as other places. I was very pleasantly surprised. Seats were comfortable. The ground floor dining area had a very grand atmosphere to it. The staff all spoke good English and we had great service. The menu was good... More

I think the title pretty sums up our overall impression. We only had dinner there once. More than enough. We expected much more from such a hig- rated restaurant. We had much better food at several less expensive and unassuming places. Pity, because the venue is really nice and service was correct.

We were staying at the Sofitel Metropole & our concierge recommended this restaurant to us as we wanted somewhere easy to dine & within walking distance. The restaurant is housed in a lovely... More

Went for a set menu with free pur wine. Lovely way to start a HM in Vietnam. Food was great....there was so much though, struggled to keep eating but foolishly felt that we didn't want to offend by stopping. Decor was nice but upstairs was closed as it was a Sunday and not their busiest night so that was a... More

Hoped over from the Sofitel with high expectations. Firstly they asked us to sit at the bar to eat, that the empty table was reserved, we didn't want to perch on high stools for dinner so we told them we would leave instead, they then said the other table was leaving soon. So...we stayed, only to find the empty table... More

Just around the corer from the Metroplole. I was a little worried as there were no locals there. All tourists. Still the food was excellent. I had duck with Mandarin sauce. Excellent.My wife had the fried fish which was big and very tasty. We shared a very good salad. Wine by the glass was good quality and not too expensive.... More

After a late arrival in Hanoi from Laos we didn't want to walk too far from our hotel L'Opera for dinner. We weren't disappointed with our choice, and our first experience of Vietnamese food. Very nice surroundings, and very attentive service, with a mix of holiday and business clientele.
