Too hot to sit in lovely courtyard, we opted for 2nd floor dining. Lovely, cool room with old wood and quaint atmosphere. Very clean. Waitstaff very courteous and helpful. Try the tapas selection for variety of delicious dishes. Try the margaritas for refreshing, relaxing libation. So much food & so reasonable !

We had our first meal in Hanoi here - on a very hot night and were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely garden setting and lots of fans being used to keep the area lovely and cool! Our food was amazing especially the steamed rice paper rolls and the 'cha ca'

A bit overprice restaurant in old city, with cozy backyard (but very hot) and nice food. I got the pomelo-prawns dish - tasty, but only two prawns for almost 200 thousand dong :( My husband had a pho bo and duck - also tasty and much more food for the same amount:))) Cocktails are strong in a not very tasty...

Before getting to Hanoi, we looked at a few restaurants to try out. We decided that Madame Hien was a must. We kept it for the end of our stay. We called and booked for 9pm. We also asked when they were closing and they said 11pm. When we arrived, it was like entering a small a haven of peace... More

I visited this restaurant in March with my daughter whilst on holiday. Restaurant was full and we were told there would be a one hour wait which we declined but then reconsidered as the aromas coming from adjacent restaurants were nowhere near as enticing. We therefore returned willing to wait but we were offered a small table just outside the... More

The food here is expensive but very nice and the staff very friendly. They helped us choose some traditional dishes and we're happy when we wanted to move to a cooler spot. Outside is definitely better than inside. We spent $80 on a meal for 4 with only beer for two of us. That's a week if street food so... More

We ate dinner at this restaurant a couple of times and were pleased with the extensive menu and excellent service. The meals were perhaps a little on the small side for the price, but good quality.

I travel extensively escorting groups from NZ to Viet Nam and this is my top pick for any restaurant in the Old Quarter of Hanoi. Great easy location, food is outstanding and the service is really fast and friendly. The price is easily comparable to other restaurants in the old quarter, Definite must but book as it sells out fast... More

Tremendous atmosphere in a historical house. Fantastic food. Service sadly a little disjointed, but well meaning and we weren't in a hurry so no harm done. Loved the kids' menu ... really accommodated our two. Not cheap, but good value
