Great steak

We had foie gras (patae), escargot and ribeye steak.. All of which were decent but not out of this world. Staff was friendly, setting was cosy but it's not really the French experience

We dined here a few days ago and had a nice experience. The service, ambience, and menu are OK. The portions are rather large by Vietnamese standards and tasty. The quality of the main course food was marginal, but the appetizers were great. We did not try the wine, too expensive,

Duck confit is a must!! It was soft and juicy. And sea bass with risotto is highly recommended. It just costs you under vnd 500000 and you'll get really full!

My family and I chanced upon this place when seeking shelter from the rain after a long excursion. Upon entering, the decor is sleek and charming but unimpressive. After taking a look at the too-finely printed menu (which needs to be improved), we were taken aback by the price! Around the range of 200,000 to 400,000 Dong on avg. This... More

After weeks of Vietnamese food, we were in the mood for steak! Decided on French cuisine and were very happy with our meals and service at Le Bouchon.......a glass of sparkling wine on arrival was very welcoming!

Was there for diner. Had the choucroute, which was more looking like a soup than a choucroute, the plate was full of water, the meat was hard and chewy. The other person with me had a steak, there are lot a better place for steak than Le Bouchon. As previously described the owner is totally indifferent, not passing from table... More

I've read the dreadful reviews and have to say we found it fine. My French onion soup was good, mains were fine and chips excellent. The staff were all very friendly and attentive; the European manageress and the man, and all the local girls pleasant and chatty. Extensive wine list. The décor is attractive and very French, almost like an... More

We went there as a group of 18 pax and all of us were happy with our food, especially the desserts. Their hostess was nice; however, the owners/chef were indifferent and rude, from the time I made the reservations to the dinner and the waitress was clueless.

I discovered this restaurant while locating a different place. I'm glad I had dinner here! I ordered the Boudin Noir with a side of Pommes Frites. The Boudin Noir was soft and seasoned quite well; not overly done and just enough to allow the natural blood flavor to come through. Sometimes the true test of a chef and restaurant is... More
