The view here of Hanoi is unbeatable! We sat on the roof right next to the view and the view alone is worth it. We had grilled fish and spaghetti carbonara. The food is good but not amazing. Also, the portions are very small compared to other restaurants in Vietnam which makes Avalon a little bit pricey because you will... More

I went to Avalon at night for dinner with my girlfriend. We were lucky and got a table on the top (7.) Floor right next to the balcony with the view on the lake. Pro: - The view is amazing and it was nice to see the red bridge and other buildings enlightened at night. - Because you are so... More

We went to Avalon for dinner after walking around the city for a while to find a suitable place. The pasta was very good. The portion was not enormous for a hungry traveller but neither was the price and it ended up being more than enough. The cocktails were a bit expensive so we went for the Tiger draught instead....

Had our last night here in Hanoi. Couldn't have had a better experience. Top floor with a great view. Staff know about the food and what to recommend to westerners that are fussy (like most of our group)! I had the carbonara it was small but definitely enough!

We ate here twice. Fabulous food, reasonable prices and the desserts are some of the best in Vietnam and then there's the view too - it's fabulous. We ate both on the roof terrace and inside, both options offered a gorgeous lake view.

Had a wonderful dinner with my Boyfriend. Amazing view, the staff spoke great English and the food was tasty. Very reasonable prices. This is the place to go if you prefer not to eat street food ;) probably you could also enjoy the sunset there, we arrived when it was already dark.

I have just come there for my birthday with my friends. Base on the good reviews from tourists and local people, I choose it as the good place to have appointment. But I were very disappointed about the waiter's service attitude. When he asked us for drinks, only three of us ordered because one of my friend would like to... More

Top floor oasis above the busy street with a great view of the lake. Tables and chairs were lovely and comfy. Service was a bit spotty... Had to work hard to get attention even though my table was right near the service station. I had a rice porridge, sea bass and chicken wing dish . All were about appetizer sized... More
