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.

The food here was alright but nothing particularly special. The staff were neither friendly nor rude, just average. Meal prices gravitate around 100-150k. Overall I'd rate this cafe as acceptable/average. There are probably other restaurants nearby that are better, but seeing as many others have had great experiences with this place the results may vary.

Nice little place if you want a quick meal. We had the Vietnamese mango salat. The food is average, coffee good and the service is great. This place have live music in the evening, which apparently should be really good.

Just a small English style pub with good food and live music. I had a stew for dinner,which was very tasty. From 7-9 they have a live band playing.

Came here with my boyfriend after reading the reviews. Amazing meal for such a good price! Mushroom soup and the Mexican quesdesella (or spelt something similar) followed by the brownie. Great guitarist from Canada, if you're looking for a nice evening with amazing food/music, definitely worth a visit!

Got some grub here. Price was decent for western food. It was clean and warm after a day in the cold. Nachos portion was a little bit small. But overall nice experience. Especially when the music started at 7.30.
