Open all day to anyone and overlooking the famous Metropole Hotel, eating and drinking are taken to an exciting new level. Here, in the splendid surroundings of old colonial flair, you can experience at “La Table du Chef", a unique 2 Michelin-star menu from Alain Dutournier (Paris) or enjoy at "La Plume Lounge” a choice of traditional Vietnamese dishes and the best cocktails in town from our world championship finalist

We had a great meal here. The food was delicious and all beautifully presented. Service is good too, attentive but not intrusive. The wine list is good too, if a bit expensive for Hanoi.

One of my favourite spots when visiting Hanoi. It's an oasis of calm in sometimes maddening Hanoi. I've not had a meal here apart from the occasional hamburger, which have been excellent. I take overseas visitors here for the great ambience, service and drinks, which...More
