Mainly international foods at expensive price. My friend ordered pizza which was expensive and just ok but I ordered local dish da lat vegetables which were really nice. Da Lat wine also good!

Feeling like a cosy pub, the live music was ok ( but not brilliant and not on for very long), the food very average and the average age of the customers over 60.

Went there with a group and the service was ok. Food, too, was ok. Nothing too creative but good soup and spring rolls. The rest was forgettable though not bad. Carrot cake for dessert was bad.

The "italian" coffee and food in general is expensive and mediocre by Dalat standards. The service is not bad, though a smile would be nice.

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. The food tasted good, though tuna seemed to smell a bit fishy. Or it might be me who isn't adjusted to seafood. We did enjoy the atmosphere---- with the dim light candles(which turned out to...

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.

The V Cafe is the home of LIVE MUSIC and great food in the central highlands of Vietnam.The story...Opened in 2002 by long-term Vietnam resident, Dr. Michael Sterling, the V Cafe carries on the tradition of good food and good value, and is now adding a "taste of the blues," as Curtis King and friends light up the V Cafe with their live blues and acoustic music.The menu... 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. (No MSG added to our food.)We've added a great breakfast menu, and are opening up early for travelers wanting to get an early start before heading out to see Dalat.Nightly live music - acoustic, rock 'n' roll, blues, folk, country, international.Free WIFI.Delivery within Dalat!Smoking section outdoors.
