Wow, a great surprise

After living in Vietnam for over 20 years it's nice to be surprised. Refuge is great, real traditional styled food (like mom cooked), the pork with bacon, cheese, rosemary roasted tomatoes and potatoes was amazing. If you have a sweet tooth then the chocolate mousse is to die for and all real value... read more

Refuge is an excellent place to eat in Nha Trang. The quality is consistently great. High quality ingredients and a friendly Owner/host Dimitry will get you fixed up. I personally eat here at least once a week while in NT. Enjoy

This little restaurant is a great find in Nha Trang. Not only was the food great but the owner came out and chatted with us for ages. A really nice guy willing to share his story. I thought the prices were very reasonable which was quite a pleasant surprise as well.

We went here for some western food, as we felt a little dodgy from trying everything vietnamese, that we could get our hands on. I can safely say you couldn't go anywhere in Europe for the standard of food for this price and the wine is the cheapest you'll get in the area. So why not order I nice bottle... More

Refuge was recommended to us by an Australian couple we met out dining one night in Nha Trang. We wanted to continue our culinary adventures with tasting authentic Vietnamese food but after struggling to find restaurants around Nha Trang we opted to try out our tastebuds with a little bit of French cuisine. We were not disappointed. Initially we found... More

We went in for a couple of beers before heading to another place where we had a reservation. The waiter was very nice at first but when we just wanted beer he told us that he could not hold a table just for beers and we would maybe have to leave if more people come. The restaurant was not even... More

Which all tasted amazing, I opted for the fried eggs with bacon and added tomatoes and mushrooms this arrived on a hot plate amazingly presented and tasted fantastic! This also came with freshly baked bread and salad. They also do a tangy... More

The food here is probably one of the best places I have eaten and I eat out most days. The lovely French owner recommended some food and wine for us and they were fabulous! Make sure you try their homemade sausage in a white wine and onion sauce it was phenomenal! They also offer exciting meats such as crocodile and... More

Nice atmosphere, like if we lived the Nha trang during 2 hours ! The owners are very friendly, nice welcome, and they advice on the food and take really care of guests. And, the food is awesome! Tried the cordon bleu, and a perfect mousse au chocolat !
