Adjacent to St Joseph's Cathedral, La Place offers an excellent vantage point for a relaxed coffee or an affordable evening meal in the edge of the Old Quarter. Set slightly off from the main street, the La Place balcony offers an excellent view of the square in front. During the day, this square features no end of bride and grooms... More

"Bun cha" I ordered was nice and full. With the price of VND79,000, I consider the price was quite reasonable within the Old Quarter area. View was nice as you can see the cathedral, especially in the evening. I also came here to buy the famous Marou chocolate as this is one of the very few places that sell this... More

it is located just by the side of the cathedral. you can enjoy your food and watch the people outside the church. they serve good western food but the prices are high but you are paying for the quality. the portioning is big and a very hearty meal.

Nice cafe. The view of the cathedral is really the major selling point, so try to get a seat on the balcony.

We stumbled across this restaurant after a grueling hour walk from the Citadel. It offered us a wonderful view of St Joseph's Church (being to the right hand side of the church if you approach from the front) and more importantly, had tasty and fresh food. We ordered the stir fry chicken with rice and the chicken curry with rice.... More

Friendly place, good coffee, good food. But here is a tip. The menu looks quite unexciting - but the food as it comes out looks great. I suggest you check out what tables nearby are having and point to one that looks good to place your order. I am not convinced that all the dishes on offer are on the... More

The Café de la Place, in front of Saint Joseph's cathedral, is a very good option for kunch or dinner. The options are simple and good, the ambiance is very nice, and the prices are excellent.

Found the balcony a lovely place for dinner and drinks. Food was good and beer cold. Great view of church and with balcony fans were nice and cool. Service was quick so all good.

Good selection of cuisine, we had both eastern and western which were all very tasty. Meals came quickly and were well presented. Relaxed atmosphere, a few tables on a balcony with views of the cathedral.
