We visited this restaurant twice. The first time I had the Musca. It was great. The wait staff was attentive. Desert, a tiramisu, was large and more than enough for two people.

One of my favorite restaurants in HCMC. Sometimes I go elbowroom as they serve similar menu. I especially like cram chauder. Food is so nice and service as will. Also the atmosphere is really good for couple or entertaining. It's quiet and intimate. And the restaurant has an advantage in accessibility as it is located in the centre of HCMC.

Good service, although a bit slow, meals were very good but the items shown on the menu, were missing on one plate, but no one seemed to understand the problem. Best to book or arrive early as it was very busy by 7pm

This is a nice, quieter restaurant off the main roads in D1. Still a great location to central area. Lovely building, good food and service, nice wine selection. Sometimes hosts networking events. Worth a visit!

Went there on first night in HCMC mainly because it was close to my hotel. Food was good but not great.

Are you a "Foodie" with a discriminating palate? This is your restaurant of choice in Saigon. Elegant but relaxed atmosphere, well trained staff and a well designed menu are all attributes of Skewers. After dinner you can relax and enjoy a good cigar and Single Malt in the smoking room. All in All this is a truly wonderful evening experience... More

Great food, great service can't fault this place, one of my all time favourite restaurants with a really fantastic Mediterranean flavour. If only all restaurants were this well organised and run.
