On Saturday, there was a VIP function, so the place was fully booked. On a rainy Sunday, we were the only two guests eating here. I was bitten by a mosquito, and a bat flew... More

We have visited Le Rabelais many times, but, unfortunately, it was closed for a private function the last time we tried to dine there. This time, however, the memories were still there in the present with good service and excellent presentation of delicious food. They suggested their Menu Plaisir (Pleasure Menu) which started with a delicate amuse bouche followed by... More

Located on the ground floor of the Da Lat Palace Hotel this restaurant on a small hill overlooks the lake. The view is quite stunning day or night. The hotel looks quite impressive from the outside but is even grander when you step indoors.

The restaurant is located inside the Da Lat Palace hotel which is very easy to find. It was beautifully decorated with a rococo-esque style, truly a thrilling experience for anyone to have considering this hotel was built from long time ago. We only visited this place for a drink but would be definitely back again soon. Very nice and fancy... More

The French food is "above average", the wine list is quite limited and quite expensive. Service is courteous and professional; dessert is not very impressive. Excellent French bread

Very formal restaurant With fresh flowers, candlelight etc. and a fancy menue to choose from. The Food is delicious, and the desserts are huge and beautiful presented like a piece of art. The only reason why I do not give top score, is the long waiting time for the Food.The prices are really reasonable for what you get!
