We have walked past Refuge for many years, often wondering what was beyond the door, but not being 'brave' enough to open. This year, we were brave and are kicking ourselves that we did not walk in years ago! Pierre is a truly wonderful host. For my husband and I this was a treat - leaving the teenagers to go... More

Walked in with a group of friends. The menu is incredible, I had an ostrich steak which was cooked to perfection. My favourite place to dine so far in Vietnam. Also very homely atmosphere and the service was great.

A quaint restaurant serving some delicious French cuisines. I had visited the joint during my recent trip to Nga Trang , Vietnam on business purpose. I had a local guy with me and he wanted me to try out this one joint. Unpretentious and simple, serving a very homely food. We started off with some cheese platter and followed with... More

My wife and I found Refuge through some web surfing and assessing various reviews. While looking for some French cuisine, we completely enjoyed the Alpine-like atmosphere in an unlikely environment such as Nha Trang. The food was delicious, while the portions were generous. While not for the connosseur looking for French style fine dining, it is a great location for... More

Unpretentious home cooked food. Good value for money with large portions (maybe too large) and a friendly, welcoming, but not overwhelming host. Cordon Bleu, which the owner does push hard, was just alright, nothing special and far too big. Fantastic chocolate mousse.

As you step into the door, you are quickly sat and told what you should order. The owner is way too pushy and really tries to get all the dongs out of your pocket. Nothing wrong with suggesting meals but there it was too much for my liking. My wife also made the same comment when we were back at... More

The dishes are very good and "really french". Cordon bleu and tartiflette were terrific. I don't agree with the "ungood" notes: yes, boss was really present at the beginning, but let us eat and discuss afterward. the dishes are very good, and very french (I'm french) Only issue we had, was a group of 5 men coming at the end...

We were greeted by the owner when we arrived for lunch and he recommended some excellent dishes. The meals are filling and big; definitely good value for money. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the owner so friendly that we returned that evening to have dinner. My favourites were the crepes, I had the mushroom one, the Nutella and the... More

I just relocated to Nga Trang, Vietnam, and stumbled upon this restaurant. It doesn't look grand from the outside, but thats because they have the door closed because its one of the only places in town with air conditioning! The proprietor/owner greeted me in French and English and from there collaborated on a fantastic dining experience, giving his recommendations from... More

My wife and I wanted a quiet night out with some French food as a break from rice and curry. We were greated by the owner and served by him for the whole evening. We stared with a cheese platter which was much nicer than most cheeses I had tasted and then onto the cordon bleu for mains. Great sized... More
