Granted, we're eating western food, but it's all over the menu. Pepperoni pizza, Caesar salad and chicken quesadilla, all just very...eh. Staff was very friendly, and we were a bit early for the music, so missed out on that. Cheers!

We find this to be a SUSPICIOUS REVIEW from a competitor. (Why would somebody set up a T A to write only one review?) More

Had breakfast there. Eggs sunny side up and a coffee. Good eggs, good coffee. Not extra-ordinairy, but more then good enough. Feeling like having a nice breakfast, then this is a good start.

Came here to work and have breakfast. Right off the bad wasn't impressed when they asked if I want milk in my americano. The scrambled eggs in my breakfast burrito were over cooked and brown on the bottom and I was harassed by flies throughout the meal. I liked the sour cream and guacamole that came with it, though.

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.

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.
