Description: An oasis of peace and silence, right in the heart of Hanoi, L'Embellie offers its patrons the very best of Parisian cuisine and art de vivre. The fully renovated colonial building in the French district proves to be a perfect venue to provide a unique experience, from healthy & light to the wallet lunch to a romantic exquisite diner, from quiet business a-la-carte treat to special occasions celebration.

The place is closed. One of my friend recommanded this place for me. The outside looks nice but inside nothing! The pictures of the food looks so great, like french classic cuisine. What's the pity!

The presentation is outstanding and the staff extremely attentionate. The restaurant has a Japanese-style touch: there's a bilingual English+Vietnamese sign poster outside, and the boss obviously aims at Japanese standards of quality of service, including cleanliness. Quiet atmosphere, very relaxing. The food is good, though a colleague said the beef was a little tough.

What's great is that restaurant changes it's set lunch menu every week, I keep on trying new things and I've never been disappointed! Also, wine by the glass list is rather impressive, with seven different wines to chose from (though only French wines) and Stephane is always happy to give us advice. The building is beautiful, food is delicious, ideal... More

Following the great reviews posted by my fellow Australians, the four of us had dinner at L'Embellie. We were looking forward to it after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor, and we were not disappointed! The place is fantastic! Genuine French food, cooked to perfection by a French chef and served by smiling young staff (knowledgable and who spoke english... More

Warm welcome, great menu and great wine list with Stephane happy to recommend what was a perfect match to our meal. For our fellow travellers, we took a soup de poisson de roches and assiette de fruits de mer gratines as an entree. Both were delicious and my husband and I ended up sharing our meal with each other. We... More

We loved this little restaurant! It was a great retreat from the hustle and bustle outside. We came across it when searching for lunch, and loved it so much we returned for dinner. The service was wonderful and the food absolutely delicious. Everything is crisp and clean, and the attention to detail was great (including little touches of adding lime... More

Three of us went here for dinner. The service was somewhat over attentive as for a lot of the time we were the only guests. The menu is, as was repeatedly pointed out, traditional French and not fusion, but also it is not nouvelle. Food and tastes have moved on from the 1950's and whilst the food here was generally...

Three of us had an excellent evening celebrating a birthday. The food and drinks were great, as was the hospitality from Stephane and his wife - from the start (great aperitif recommendations) to the end (patiently entertaining two of us while the other went back to the hotel for the forgotten credit card!). The building itself is beautiful with a... More

A new restaurant in Hanoi. I like La Badiane and L'Embellie is right up there! With the important differential that the cuisine is traditional French. Decor and presentation is first class and the staff (owners) were the perfect hosts. Portions are generous and absolutely delicious. The duck and profiteroles were to die for. Do yourself a favour and try. I... More
