I made a birthday party reservation for our group with decoration package. When we showed up, there was no decoration beside a "Reserved" sign on the tables. The AC did not work; the staff did not mentioned anything about this or give us the stay or go option. There were a few fans running but they were not enough for... More

Had been told this was the place to be. Group of us who had recently met had a great time and really good drinks . Didnt have the food as were eating at restaurant downstairs. Worth it for the view.

A big place, located opposite Hoan Kiem lake. The open space gives the guess a lot of freedom. The rooftop coffee are also very interesting. What's best is the atmosphere, quiet and no rushing around. Good place, good price.

I sat at one of two tables outside with a wonderful view of the lake and all of the evening buzz on the streets. My server was attentive, and carefully described items on the menu to help me make a good selection. The food and mango margarita were great, and although a little more expensive than street food, still an... More

We went for dinner, to observe the panoramic view of the city at night. Terrace offers a nice view of the lake, food was average (a mix of Vietnamese and Western dishes), not too pricy, but not very tasty either. Service was a bit slow, but we have enjoyed the atmosphere and the view.

Yes there is an unbeatable view on the Old Water but this is the best part of it. Food is average at best with a mix of Vietnamese and Western dishes that are not unforgettable. Service is rather slow, seating is not extremely comfortable. Not that bad overall but there are so many far better places in Hanoi… I’d suggest... More

It was our last night in Hanoi and our last night in Vietnam so we were looking for somewhere a little special to end our trip. Avalon Café Lounge proved to be just the place. We entered from the street on the wrong side of the building and walked up to the fourth floor. Initially we sat inside but then... More
