Run by school students this restaurant was pleasantly peaceful. After looking through the Ethnology museum (the restaurant is inside the museum) we came to the restaurant and were served by lovely students. The food was very good offering french cuisine as well as traditional Vietnamese food. For drinks they had a wide variety of juices, alcohol, hot beverages and soft... More

I love the idea of students learning about the food industry by running a restaurant.after a lovely tour of the museum we stopped in here for lunch.straight away I knew something was wrong. There was one other couple in the restaurant but we were left for close to half an hour before the staff came to take our drink orders.... More

At the Museum of Ethnology, don't be put off by the name - it does a lot more than just baguettes and chocolate, offering a wide selection of Vietnamese dishes. Run as a training centre, the service can be slightly uncertain but is very friendly and welcoming.

After visiting the inside of the Ethnology museum, I stopped for lunch in Baguette & Chocolat. The place is run by students, as some kind of training, and the food was just awesome! Very delicious, nice looking place, very friendly service, all this with a splendid view over the traditional Vietnamese houses that surround the Ethnology museum. Definitely recommended!

But when we were there in early January, the whole SaPa town was out of electricity. And this boutique hotel do not have their own generator ! We were so cold. The... More

As reward you can have lunch in the museum garden in one of four Hoa Sua Training Restaurants. A delightful refuge... More
