I first visited V cafe in 2007 and it remains a classic Dalat cafe. Visited twice for the terrific mango salad. Disappointed not to see the lemon meringue pie I loved in 07 but still a nice place to eat and drink.

V cafe provides rice as well as latin American food. We had pisto manchego, tuna salad and broccoli beef (served with rice) as main course.

Together with 2 friends we had dinner here and all tried western items off the menu. Very delicious, fries were cold and my friends vegetables arrived 5 minutes after she finished the rest of her food. Good atmosphere and music.

Menu comprised a variety of tasty Vietnamese and western dishes and a good selection of beers and other beverages at reasonable prices. In house musician was enjoyable. Only negative was the slow service.

Really happy to have stumbled upon this place. We really came for the live music played every evening, but was delighted about the food as well. The food, though still on the salty side was very satisfying at decent prices. They also serve bread with their pastas and soups!

Went to V cafe for dinner, both dishes we had were great and the live music was a nice touch. The staff are very friendly. It's not cheap but it's around the average price you pay for a decent western meal in Vietnam. Would recommend it and would come here again.

A great mix of Western favorites (including some of the best Mexican and tastiest pizzas in Vietnam), a smattering of Asian dishes, including a few Vietnamese all-time favorites (pho, spring rolls, etc.) Vegetarian? You'll enjoy a full selection of Vegetarian dishes, including some great curries. Good selection of local and imported beers and wines.
