Good food. Nice view.

Went there on our first evening in Vietnam. Good introduction to vietnamese food combined with a nice view on the city. Slightly on the pricier end.

Beautiful views but inconsistent service and really weird food. I ordered the nachos but got something unrecognizable instead. There were tortilla chips and plasticky cheese involved, but the highlight of the experience was the cheap beer.

First night in Hanoi and decided to visit the restaurant for dinner because of the views over the old quarter and reading good reviews. Dinner was good - both the chicken & beef dishes were well cooked & very flavoursome. Definitely not a cheap option but a nice dining experience away from the chaos and heat!

This restaurant is very modern and with 2 floors you can see why it gets busy. The food was great and not very expensive and what tops it all off is the view at night.

We came here for dinner and were impressed by the view of the lake but not too much by the restaurant/bar itself. The Vietnamese food was okay but the service was incredibly slow and the staff weren't nice at all, drinks were double what you'd pay for anywhere else. Maybe for some people it was worthwhile like families etc but... More

This bar is my favourite in Hanoi! Order the jar with strawberry mojito cause it is soooo good! The food is delicious and the view from their rooftop is great. Hoan Kiem Lake smiles at you.

This is a perfect restaurant for people visiting Hanoi for the first time, want to try some traditional Vietnamese food and want a seriously great view of the city. Pretty cheap by USD standards (~$25 for 2 people, drinks, main meal and an app). Yes, it's touristy, but tourists go there for a reason! Absolutely loved it and would recommend... More

If you're planning on going out for dinner with traditional dishes and meals with a western twist, you've come to the right place. The food is amazing. My husband and l have actually been there twice within a week, and had different sets of meals. We chose to have our dinner on the 6th floor and had an amazing view... More

This place is all about the view. It's situated in an amazing location, and sitting out on the balcony is really all you need. There's nothing special about the food or drinks, and the prices are slightly above average, but it's not really important as it's just such a lovely place to sit and drink and watch the sun go...

Food here is good and the surrounds are nice. I would probably go next door to Cau but still a pleasurable experience. A bit cheaper than some of the other restaurants in the building.
