Entrees were nicely presented and... More

This is a very unique restaurant. The owners have clearly gone to a great deal of trouble to present a first class restaurant and something a little different. Tina, our host was lovely, she did everything that she could to make us feel welcome and was very passionate about the restaurant and the food. I thought the food was very... More

This classical french restaurant served me a great lobster! I am surprised that it is not more renown for its menu, and frankly it beats some of the restaurants I have been to with Michelin Stars!

Based upon the #4 rating in all of Ho Chi Minh, I was very excited to eat dinner at this restaurant. What a gorgeous place! Everything about the meal was too notch. You couldn't possibly go wrong here...plus the wine selections were well priced.

Our taxi driver was a bit worried as it was not in the thick of things..a bit out of town. We arrived to find a lovely little villa away from... More
