The new owners should stop the fake reviews. Everybody knows that since Le bouchon changed to new owners, the quality, which used to be excellent, is crap. They tried to maintain a good rating, despite recent bad reviews. It is a pity to destroy the image of what used to be good, but when you buy a restaurant, we should... More

After eating Vietnamese food for two weeks, we thoroughly enjoyed our French meal in this bistro. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was good.

Super food in a nice ambience. Service was great and was set up very much like a French bistro - could easily have been in a square in a French village as much as Saigon Good choice of food - very good French cooking - a gem of a place

It was a good start, the waiters are polite and smiling and we were even offered a glass of champagne (or methode champenoise, not sure) when we arrived. However it quickly deteriorated. We ordered the salade du bouchon (bacon, gizzards, poached egg), foie gras and magret de canard, along with two glasses of red wine. The starters were a disaster.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our concierge at the Sofitel. After reading recent reviews on TA I wasn't too sure but decided to give it a go. Unfortunately most of the recent review are accurate: The food was quite bland, with the exception of the cassoulet (more on that in a moment). The foie gras was almost flavourless, while... More

My partner had pork fillet and steak. All plates were left empty. Servings where adequate for dinner, we did not leave hungry. On our... More

For some reason the selection and the quality of their food is going downhill compared to before. LAst two times we have been there, they were out of mussles. We ordered onion soup, risotto, beef, etc. and none of them tasted the way they used to be. I really used to like this place so I might give them one... More

I was alone for an evening in Saigon and wanted a nice meal. I went to the place across the street first and when I told them i was a party of 1, they told me they were "full," although clearly there were plenty of seats. So I wandered into Le Bouchon, where I was greeterd with a smile and... More
