Excellent place to enjoy your dinner - very French

Went there with a family member and it is long time since we went to a place so quite even that it was full - absolutely not a big place.

A very warm welcome from the Owner, and a much needed cool chill from the aircon. The menu presented, is authentic French Cuisine and the quality outweighs the Price. You can definitely tell the food is cooked with love and the passion of good food is felt through the owners enthusiasm. I would recommend this place if you want a... More

Le Refuge is a small wooden restaurant. they propose a french menu with typical dishes. The portion are enormous, you should be hungry when leaving the place. Good wine is proposed by the bottle or the glass. If you miss french cuisine you should try it!

It's a bit pricey for a small restaurant on a 2nd line. The food is very simple and it's not that you used to call "french cuisine". It's better be called "home food". The place is cosy, located at a small side street.

The refuge is a nice place run by an authentic and friendly French guy. They're up front with recommendations (sirloin of Vietnamese beef may not be as tender as the one we're used to), the recommended food was expensive (for Vietnamese standards) but good. One thing really stands out: the mousse is absolutely awesome!

Really cute restaurant - looks like a funky log cabin inside and the staff/owner are friendly and really make the experience enjoyable. We had the cordon bleu which was awesome a tiny bit over cooked but still tasted great. The mushroom and also the blue cheese sauce literally the best sauce I've had in my life - our group of...

Stopped by for some French with the family. Though it doesn't have a family feel, owner was great with kids and prepared a special plate for them - which they loved. Sublime chicken cordon bleu and delicious assortment of cheeses. Not cheap, but worth it!
