One of the best French cuisine I tasted so far within the region Food is delicately prepared with great details Creativity level will score 10/10. Impressive - that's how I can describe the food. Michelin chef in Singapore - comparable and 1/3 of the price you pay in Singapore Appetizer and dessert - must order. Go for the favorite main... More

If you're looking for a high-class French cuisine experience in Saigon, La Villa must definitely appear on your list. Very refined cuisine. Great service. Nice atmosphere, perfect for a romantic dinner.

Had dinner at this exceptional restaurant located in the Thao Dien Ward of HCMC in mid-March 2015. 10-15 minute cab ride from central HCMC, across the Saigon River. I made reservations on short notice on a weekday evening and had no problem obtaining a table. The restaurant is on a side street away from traffic noise or other distractions. My... More

We stayed in Ho Chi Minh for 8 nights & visited this restaurant twice. Both times the food & service were excellent. The restaurant is beautifully furnished & there is a real air of luxury about it. It's French cuisine at its best but without the arrogant French waiters.

Decided to choose this place for our valentines date, however, the valentines menu had oyster and lamb which my gf couldn't stand the smell. We chose to celebrate it a little bit sooner on the 12th and was amazed by the food and the atmosphere they offered. We got lost and the "manager" was nice enough to call and wait... More
