“Must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were early arrivals and were over welmbed by the service which eased as more people arrived. Lovely staff, great food and great staff And Bien the owner who is also an artist hence the on show art work on show often rips out a finger painting for you at no extra charge makes you you feel special even if he does the same for other guests. We finished our last night of holidays here and highly recommend it to all.
Food will cater to all tastes. I had roast chicken and the strawberry gravy/sauce was brilliant as we're the veggies. The carimelised fish & chicken (separate dishes) were tasty and both a different flavor.
Not overly expensive and fun.

“A fun time and good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had such a fun time eating here! After traveling for almost a month in Vietnam it was so nice to see a menu that had some different options. We had the cheese stuffed steak and fried pork chop, both with fresh local veggies and mash potatoes! Yum! Now this by no means was the best food we ever had, but so nice for a change of pace. Both our dishes were only 80.000 VND, so it was incredibly affordable and really really great for the price.

The owner is also an artist, so he comes around at the end of your meal and creates a painting for you to take home with you at no charge. The owner had a great disposition and big smile

Definitely stop by and have a great dinner if you are in Da Lat. Service was also great!

“an uneventful unsatisfying evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

life in dalat is slow, and the service at the News And New Art Cafe is a true reflection of this, while the decor does indeed provide comfortable atmosphere, the staff seemed reluctant to serve the customers, it almost seemed like we were imposing on their private party, we had to ask ask a number of times for the menu and the drinks seemed to take forever to arrive, the food was ok but not really worth the money or the wait! I was certainly expecting better value and service.

“Totally confused”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We went based on our LP book, 70 Truong Cong Din st. that said "Art Cafe". But then we saw an Art Cafe down the street. There is also an Art Cafe on TA at address 70 on the same street. Then my friend showed me a listing for Poetry Cafe at the same address. CONFUSING!! Anyway, we went in to the News and New Art Cafe at 70 Truong Cong Din St. The finger paintings were pretty cool, but we found the food just sort of average - definitely not bad, but not worth the effort to find the place. Would be good to clarify which restaurant is which.

To all reviewers : I am Vo Trinh Bien , the artist and founder the Art Cafe (please search my name on google) last two years I was tricked by a couple (Mrs Chau and Sonny Daze ) so I lost Art Cafe.I have opened the News And New Art Cafe for 6 months .All the staff from the original Art Cafe are still working here, that the reason of News And New Art Cafe is original Art Cafe .
After lost Art Cafe I have no money to live , some of my friends help me to open News And New Cafe.At News And New Art Cafe we always do with our best to serve our customers not only food but also painting in order the customers feel happy and enjoy their trip in Dalat,Vietnam.
We are honored to listen to customers feedback .
we doubt this review is wrote by a competitor .The best regard
