The restaurant is in a old colonial type building with very fun scenery all around. The food however was a disappointment. To be fair to the restaurant, I ordered items which I don't find in the US often as "False Dog-meat and cooked snails" (See pic). but we also got more standard things from the menu. Everything seemed a little... More

This is still a popular restaurant due to the setting in a nice french villa in a good location. Service is good. Some dishes do run out sometimes. Ordered the bun ca but was told it was finished. Ordered the steamed fish which was fresh and nice. I will recommend travellers to saigons as well as residents in saigon

This restaurant is definately overrated! None of the dishes was better that average and some were just bad. The service was terrible since the plates were coming in a wrong order and some were wrong too. absolutely disappointing on terms of taste.
