Quarter of a million for a drink

After whole day on our own tour in Saigon we wanted to have a cool drink. This was a little bit challenge but then we found Continental Bar open. Excellent drinks but the most expensive ever. We paid a quarter of a million for a drink. This was of course in local currency and equal to 15 USD :-)

I am surprised by some of the reviews for this restaurant. We loved it. Stylish, spacious and elegant, the restaurant was a delightful place to be. The service wasn't the fastest in the world but we were there to enjoy the ambience not to rush in and out. We had dinner and enjoyed the piano and guitar music played live... More

A fine building in the centre of Saigon, near the Opera House. Such a pity that they can't rise to the occasion and offer an experience more in keeping with the location.

We anticipated a relaxed evening meal and a fine dining experience in lovely surroundings. Sadly non of this happened, except for imagining how it would have been in the past. At 8.30pm we were seated at an un-set table and it was some time before our order was taken. There were few other diners but again we waited and eventually... More

We had lovely dinner at a window overlooking the Saigon Opera House. The staff was excellent and the food was good. It was more costly than other restaurants but, you were paying to eat in this notable hotel.

We visited this hotel because of its history and decided to have breakfast at the buffet, it was a great choice. Breakfast was very ample and service was great, also ask for a table on the patio as you get to see the architecture of the hotel and some great trees that have been for over 100 years, a nice...

Stayed at the hotel and ate one meal at the Palace restaurant. French menu good selection but quite expensive considering the local area. It is convenient to guests staying in the hotel but I would advise enjoying the local restaurants in the area or a short taxi ride away. Food in HCMC is outstanding!

Breakfast was included with my hotel room, but I did not eat there at all for lunch and dinner so I can not speak for that. However, breakfast buffet was splendid, I ate enough to keep me filled until dinner. The staff was very friendly, but did not speak much english.

Couldn't ask for anything more . The staff were friendly and helpful ensuring we enjoyed our meals and stay. In fact one of the younger staff spent time showing us how to use chopsticks

We had a lunch there. The food isn't nothing special and my husband ordered a beer, which was so warm. They said they don't have cold beer at all in this moment. And the place tries to be a luxury... You can buy a cold beer in any place in Saigon - but not here.
