Last night we decided to go out for French food. A guide told us that Le Gecko and the Le Petite Gecko was similar menus and one owner and was probably the best in town but he was unsure since he was a local and did not eat in the tourist restaurants. That's probably the only thing that'll save his... More

Lovely little restaurant. They have a good mix of local Vietnamese and western food. Highly recommended for a hot meal and coffee/desserts.

Some of the best western food in Asia. My husband ordered the beef bourgenion, it was delicious! Really great service and wine. Got slightly smoked out by the fire but the food was brilliant!

Admittedly the atmosphere and name of this restaurant lead me to believe I would be delighted with a quality meal, perhaps with a good attempt at french cuisine. I ordered chicken with cream and mushrooms off the 'french specialties' menu, and received an interesting take on what seemed like carbonara without the pasta with vegetables. This was slightly palatable for... More

Tasty food and lovely service! Wide variety of foods including dessert.Try the pork with lemongrass and the Sapa soup! Amazing! Chocolate tart is a must as well! I would recommend this restaurant to a friend or family member.

Best recommending the Banana spring-roll with Shrimp and the Chicken Pho. The staff was very nice and welcoming. You should try but do not expect to fly ;)

Bad food, expensive liquor. We returned one course, other diners returned theirs too. Ordered the hamburger based on reviews, but that was pretty bad too. Owners had their kid wandering inside the restaurant while the male owner played on his laptop. I will not go back.
