Nice food and quiet with a great view of lake

Came with husband early for dinner. No crowd. Orders spaghetti marinara and grilled seabass. Fresh spring roll. Food was good but not awesome :) venue is great to get away from the hustle and bustle on ground level.

The place has a fantastic view of Hoan Kiem lake, and even better at night. Services were good, drinks are well made and the atmosphere was pleasant also. Perfect for families, friends and all types of visit.

Located on the 5th floor, it's definitely worth the visit to sit and relax, enjoy some coffee, and look out over the lake. The only drawback for me was they allowed smoking inside, and it was too hot to sit outside.

Really nice views over the lake, and not too expensive given its location. Ambience and service were fairly poor though, and we didn't eat there so I can't comment on the food. Worth a quick stop for the view alone, though there are obviously a number of places on the rooftops offering that.

I was lured into this restaurant by the girl on the street. The menu looked decent so I took a chance. After my first meal, I fell in love with this place. The view from the balcony is beautiful and the food is cheap and delicious!! I tried something different each time I visited and always left impressed. The service... More

Stop at Café View for a coffee or meal. Almost as iconic a Hanoi landmark as Hoan Kiem Lake, though not as picturesque, Ho Guom Plaza, (Café View) also known as Shark Jaws, looms over the southern edge of Old Quarter and provides no fewer than six different eating and drinking options. Choose from vistas of Hoan Kiem Lake or... More

After walking around to find a restaurant to have dinner at, we finally settled on Avalon out of the many options in the Hoan Kiem lake area. Thankfully, we were not disappointed with our choice. The interior is posh with dim lighting and a luxurious feel. We were seated in the air conditioned area on the upper floor. While there... More

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!
