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.

Very nice restaurant at beautiful location right on the lake Hoan Kiem. The restaurant is on 4 floors, so you can choose many ambiance with amazing decoration.

We were looking for a restuarant that was cool, clean and reasonably quiet. The views were great, the staff were friendly if a bit over attentive. The food was good and we enjoyed the evening.
