I visited La Salsa with my mother for lunch. We tried a few tapas's, served on lettuce without any nice texture. Quality was below average. We even had to return one from of the dishes (fried calamari). For the main dish we decided to try the Seafood Paella. Was simply awful. No way a paella can be ready within 15... More

We dined at La Salsa on a Saturday evening in June as a group of six. We were delighted by our choice. La Siesta provides a great taste of Europe and a welcome change if you fancy a break from the local Vietnamese cuisine. The menu consists of a varied selection of French and Spanish dishes so there's probably something... More

It is very few we can have a nice Spanish in Ha Noi and this is the one of best now. The restaurant is located near Tay Ho and has good view and nice interior. They do not have lunch menu and need more clean, these two are challenging situation I think.

After high recommendations for this place, we tried it out. It wasnt long after ordering that our food started to appear. Seafood is so fresh and tasty (didn't expect it to be do flavoursome) and vegetarian dishes great too! Lovely welcoming staff are always on hand and a really relaxed environment. Lyn the manager is so sweet and will go... More

Read about this restaurant on T/A and thought we would give it a try, it's a little hidden away so had to resort to google maps to find it, so we were about 1/2 hr late and the staff were worried about us, once we arrived they were very polite and efficient, tapas was quickly served and very tasty, along...

La Salsa is a cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The wait staff is very attentive. Our kids wanted burgers and were happy with their selection. We opted for tapas: toasted bread with tomatoes, olives, an omelette with potatoes, ham croquettes, meatballs, and a bell pepper salad. The portion sizes were what one should expect for tapas and the presentation... More

Hi Chenin, Thank you so much for your review about La Salsa. And my apologies for not be able to fulfil your family dinner at best. I will send your comments to our kitchen staff, especially about the tomato & garlic toast as normally we do not serve with balsamic sauce but lacking of garlic favour is something needs to... More

I live in Hanoi and have frequented more then 4x. It is amazing! I have perfected the menu with my girlfriend. It is the following, sangria to start, clams, goat cheese salad, seafood pasta and cheese potatoes. Followed by mango crepe dessert! Mind. Blown. Enjoy!

Prices are - for Vietnamese standards AND for backpackers who seem to rate everything here - quite high but we think it is great value and taste for money! Dont get We stayed for 4... More

I was in Hanoi for 1 week last month. I was looking for an evening to enjoy some non-Vietnamese cuisine. After a quick search on Trip Advisor i stumbled upon some reviews for La Salsa.
