We went there with high expectations and had an excellent dinner. Price was at the top range in Ho Chi Minh, costing roughly USD50- 100 for a set menu without wine. I say some of the dishes offered are not available in Hong Kong, and we love the chef's creativity in the choice of ingredients (from Japanese soy sauce, soba,... More

This is really good, tasty food. It is not the most experimenting kitchen, just beautifully made great tasting dishes in classic french style. I can highly recommend it.

My dinner at La Villa was one of the best meals I had in Asia. It was a hot evening, so I had dinner inside, gorgeous colonial style French mansion. But you have the option to seat outside, the garden looks beautiful too. The food was unbelievable. I had the crab raviole and the French duck breast. The chef kept... More

Tonight I was craving a special dining experience in Ho Chi Minh City where food tends to be variations on one note, Vietnamese. I sought out an elegant French restaurant with refined food and atmosphere. I turned to Trip Advisor and selected La Villa. After a relatively longish cab ride, I landed on a quiet road in the 2nd Disrict,... More

La Villa restaurant is a beautifully set up restaurant which exudes a classic and grand vibe. The ambience and the service is top notch with Tina the owner always coming around to make sure all tables were happy. It was hard to take nice photos as the lighting above the table we sat at was quite red/orange so I would... More

We had a superb meal here, even if I did OD on fois gras! The restaurant has a lovely ambience and, although it is a bit out of the way, is very well worth the trouble to seek out. Inevitably, the comprehensive wine list is expensive, but the house wine, especially the white, is really delicious. The chef-patron has worked... More

The food is excellent and the lady boss gave recommendations and help you to make your choice if you are unsure of what you would like to have. The lady owner was always around to check on you if everything is ok and the chef aka owner also step out to welcome the customer. Everything was perfect and we were... More

My wife and I visited La Villa as part of a brief trip to HCMC. It is a bit difficult to find, but with a map and a cabbie, it is not a problem. The ambiance of this restaurant is excellent. Set in an old villa, the dining room is very high end, with generous space between all tables. We... More

With a French colonial history, one hoped to find a great French restaurant here, and on hearing this my hosts took me here. They were right to do so. The freshness of Vietnamese cooking with the style and depth of French cuisine. Excellent lunch, though a limited menu. Highly Recommended.

La Villa is on the ground floor of an old colonial mansion in District 2 - you get the period ambience as you walk in. The French chef did a great job - the set menu featured excellent beef and pan seared foie gras. The wine list was extensive and I located a reasonably priced Grand Cru. The outdoor seating... More
