You get whisked away to an expensive bar with a surcharge for something. Not really sure what the something is. We went to get a drink and maybe some food but it seemed like one or the other and that depended on which floor we were sent to. We were forced to sit outside even though inside was empty. I...

Had a wonderful Vietnamese meal experience here. Friendly, caring staff and food to die for, with a great view over the lake to top it off.

We didn't have food here, but had drink overlooking the lake before going somewhere else for dinner. We were outside on the 7th floor which was a great view, but service was very slow and we were disappointed in one of the cocktails (asked for a refund it was so poor). Worth going for a happy hour beer for the... More

We quickly wanted to eat some dim sum. We did not have to wait long and the dim sum was delicious. The interior was also convincing.

The Avalon restaurant is a gem in the crowded Huan Kim lake. We chose the Vietnamese cuisine - Cao Go Restaurant, which led us to the 5th floor with a spectacular view of the lake - which is more than beautiful at night. We had a wonderful, smiley waitress named HOA, which means flower in Vietnamese, and indeed that girl... More

Didn't have any food but the mango daiquiri was incredible. Nice view and chilled place to have a few drinks in the afternoon.

The service was more than very good and we were happily surprised for the food. We thoght this place was a tourist place but their Vietnamese food was... More

Service is extremely slow, forgot orders, even remind the staffs also take 10-15 min more to get our drinks so we waited like 30 min for a glass of fruit juice! Outdoor tables have a really great view towards Hoan Kiem Lake and Dinh Tien Hoang St! I personally love the Healthy Tea Pot

Overlooking the lake in Central Hanoi is this rooftop bar/restaurant called Avalon. We went on our last night in Hanoi after a couple of recommendations from people we had met travelling around Vietnam.The recommendations were spot on. We ate and had a few drinks here - the food was good, the drinks too..the vibe even better. Sitting there with the... More

Food was great but service was limited. The staff didn't seem to be able to cope with a lot of people. Quiet a few dishes were unavailable, which I found surprising. Has great potential with a few more staff to cope with the dinner influx.
