Outstanding French cuisine in Ho Chi Minh City

Behind a quiet district #1 facade hides an exciting French cuisine restaurant. The menu includes modern dishes and bistro dishes. Wine selection is great too. Go go go!

French cuisine is excellent! The desserts are to die for! The place is very clean with good table setting. Don't miss this restaurant when in Ho Chi Minh.

Expensive but a great refuge from the hustle and bustle of HCM. The goat cheese appetizer is devine. Service is excellent.

We booked for New Years Eve, I booked via email and received a prompt confirmation of my reservation. We were concerned that it was set menu only, but no problem could order al la carte. Ordered a nice bottle of red, overall the bill for 3 courses and a bottle of wine was $160 total. I suppose expensive for Vietnam... More

I had not booked a table but was made very welcome - and on a busy Saturday evening! From start to finish the whole experience was excellent! As if I was the only guest and everything was done, just for me. The staff, the food, the wine, the ambience - all were most pleasing. The starter was a Fish Soup... More

What a great find.  This sweet little french bistro was delightful.  The beef cheeks, osso bucco and duck mains were all equally outstanding.  The beef cheek sauce was sweet and made you want to lick the plate. The desert was king for our son who moaned out loud as he ate his lemon merengue pie.  The trio of creme brulee... More

Having been to both this place and la villa it is a difference of day and night. If you are going to spend a small fortune on food (particularly for Vietnamese standards) strongly suggest to go to la villa instead of here. The food is really average here. We went here for Christmas Eve as hotel recommended it, very disappointing... More

Starting from the atmosphere to the smallest details on the plate everything was a pleasure. Tasty and fresh portions with innovative imagination. We loved it but were unlucky for the second dinner - sundays closed.
