Tucked away in a narrow lane west of the Imperial Citadel, dining at les Jardins is a complete experience. The French owner/manager spent a year and a half living opposite while he designed and had built this period colonial mansion. His attention to detail and aesthetic was immaculate and is now reflected in the food here. There is an occasional... More

Its next to the citadel so very easy to be reached. I could enjoy decent vietnamese food with very low price. The restaurant itself is also very beautiful and amazing.

We over ordered when we dined here and got to try quite a few options. Serving sizes were on the large size and we were a bit annoyed that the waitress didn't warn us that we were ordering too much (our fault in the end but a bit of a heads up would have been nice). Food was fairly average... More

This house is amazing... Nice and quiet and with a lovely second floor to enjoy your food if you want a small break from the busy city-restaurants. The food was great and the girls serving it was sweet. If the meat in one of the dishes had not been raw I would have given the place 5 stars.

Food is good at this French Colonial style restaurant. Ate here twice already and both times the staff were not as attentive as they should be. They tend to wander off or gather at the bar inside for a chat. Had to call out loud just to be noticed and have our tables cleaned. One time the staff forgot to... More

We decided to have dinner Le Jardins as the reviews on Trip Advisor were very positive. My husband had the chicken with the white wine cream sauce and I had mango salad as well as the rice pancake. All the dishes were delicious. For dessert I had the crime brûlée which was equally yummy. Service was attentive and staff even... More

The service at the restaurant was fantastic, like most of the service you get in Vietnam. We ordered Vietnamese starters and french mains. The presentation of all the dishes was great. The Vietnamese starters were fantastic. The French mains, while good, weren't quite up to the same standard of the Vietnamese dishes. Overall a very good meal with attentive quality... More

Nice French restaurant set in a gorgeous colonial-style building in the Citadel quarter. Dinner on the verandah is lovely on a hot night, and the service was very good. Well priced and a comprehensive menu. NOTE: There are two of the same name -- be sure to go to the one near the citadel which is larger and I feel... More

In Indochina people have this expression 'Same Same' to refer to something that is the same as another. This restaurant is not fantastic. It is 'same same' to other restaurants you can find in numerous places in the world. It really lacks its originality, story and engagement with its clients. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't surprising as well.... More
