Overcooked noodles, but decent flavors

Portions were pretty small, and the noodles were clearly overcooked, and the service was minimal....we left cash on the counter once because we couldn't find anybody to pay...

Went in 2013. Overall, we were not overly impressed with Rene's. The place is nice, the food was good enough, but somehow did not live up to the Tripadvisor reviews...for us anyway. Not saying that it's bad....giving them 5 stars...you may like it much better than we did. It was a short walk from our hotel, but there are plenty... More

Had dinner here upon the recommendation of a friend. Having worked for 1 and 1/2 years in Vietnam, I was looking forward to have an authentic vietnamese food. While the prices are very affordable, i was quite disappointed. First of, they dont serve cha da - a vietnamese version of iced tea. Secondly, their soup didnt have the tangy taste... More

Convenient to airport and Acacia Tree Hotel. More of a lunchtime place or early evening- they really wanted to close up at 20:30.. Lovely food though.

Came here for lunch with a friend and it was a very good Vietnamese Lunch ever. I ordered sizzling fish, Vietnamese soup, spring roll and it all taste good. They serve great foods at an average price. Very accommodating staff and the place is quite clean and comfy.

The food here was good. The pho wasn't exactly authentic, but it is close. The spring roles were great. It is a great value for the price.

Paid a visit to Rene's resto, situated at the quiet end of Rizal Avenue, a small quaint restaurant, where we were desperate for lunch before heading away from Palawan again. I had one of my favourite Vietnamese dishes Pho bo, and my partner had sizzling fish, with a very nice special fried rice. Apparently a family restaurant, with possibility to... More

Our dining experience at Rene's Saigon during our Palawan visit is really nice. It's my parent's first time to dine in a Vietnamese inspired restaurant and I must say that Rene's Saigon made a good impression not only for me but for my family too... Their Beef Noodle is the best and Spring Rolls both fresh and Deep-fried are a... More

The fresh rolls and french bread with bbq were delicious. The owner was very accommodating he even served the iced coffee we ordered. The food should not be missed because it is AUTHENTIC Thai cuisine.

Must try their Chao long! and the staffs are very accomodating. Peaceful and quiet. TIp: Put on some bug repellant if your visiting at night but aside from that, place is very good!
