We decided to head here after a few weeks of eating vietnamese and missing food from home (australia). Both meals (the fish and chips and the lasagne) were below average. Staff were friendly and there was nice vibe with live music, but would probably order a vietnamese meal if we returned.

We visit here sometimes for drinks, and many times for a delicious meal. This is one of the finest restaurants for the food in Dalat, Vietnam. The staff is courteous, and friendly. I have tried most of the menu items and the cook is extremely good at making the food tasty and the items are pretty reasonable priced also. I... More

I've read that someone mention that this fine dining doing karaoke.? I've been there and I experienced beautiful music, good service and good food. Not karaoke! The duo band there are doing a great live music not karaoke. Stayed in Dalat for 3 days and everyday we experienced the same thing. See for yourself and Enjoy!

We are here twice during our visit to Da Lat. We live in Vietnam as teachers so we went here because we were craving some western food! I had spaghetti and wine the first time, which were both amazing. The second time I had a grilled cheese and French fries, which was also great! I definitely recommend it, but it... More

Large menu with many western classics and the common Vietnamese staples. Service was good but we weren't impressed with the food. Ambiance is OK, located on a busy street but decorated nicely and clean

Overseas Adventure Travel took our small group to this cafe for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a blues bar! The lunch was excellent and I quickly purchased a couple of T-shirts from Lisa, our waitress. This lounge is very lucky to have Lisa on their staff as she was friendly, spoke good english and...

We had the Indonesian shrimp fried rice which was nice! The spaghetti bolognese was really great with a generous portion of parmesian cheese on the side. The New Yorker Pizza was not too bad either! The Irish Coffee was great! It's situated near the picturesque lake. .. but not with a view of the lake. The staff were very professional... More

This was my second visit here and I loved it. Friends of friends were playing that night. It was an acoustic couple and very pleasant indeed. Food was delicious, although we were pretty full from a late lunch so had spring rolls and drinks. Great service and when in Da Lat go to this place, You wont be disappointed.

Thank Leisa53
