Last week, we did a great food tour with Hanoi Taste Tours, we had a wonderful night with very tasty Vietnamese traditional food in the old quarter, our guide took us to Avalon cafe at the end of the tour to show us the best view of Hanoi, that was really great and splendid lake view that we had from...

Excellent location on the edge of the old town with quality European and Local food served. This is an expensive restaurant for Hanoi (mandatory service charge added) but you do get what you pay for and the view is good. Would recommend for a special occasion or when you need a bit of quality food on a backpack adventure

This is a lovely restaurant with great staff , excellent food, great drinks at reasonable prices. Went the first time for a drink and went back the next night for dinner, both times to the 7th floor sky deck. The view is fantastic. Dinner was delicious ( beef salad) and so were the frozen strawberry daiquiris. All staff very friendly... More

We had a great evening the waitress (Judy) worked hard to make the meal memorable. One of the best memories we took home of Hanoi was that evening

Great food and nice ambiance. Slightly pricey place but good for small eaters. Very friendly staff with reasonably good standard of English. Drinks are quite pricey.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Avalon, we were seated on the top terrace outside, this gave us a perfect view over Hanoi. The food was great and not too expensive, the restaurant offered a nice mix between western and traditional Vietnamese food, so there really is something for everyone. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, and all spoke... More

Price was a bit higher than other coffee shop in the Old Quarter but in overall, it was a good place to chill out after spending hours walking around the town. The lounge was very crowded and noisy in the evening.

We had dinner here. Food was pretty good, but the portions quite small. Compared to price it was not worth it, so we continued to fill our stomaches with street food. But view is nice, and if you can afford to pay for smaller portions it is quite ok.

It's odd that I feel compelled to write a review, and usually it's not because of an experience so overwhelmingly negative. My friends and I had been enjoying a lovely late summer evening in Hanoi, when we stumbled across Avalon, remembering from our last trip that the view from the balcony is spectacular (this is still true, however they won't...
