This is one of the very best European restaurants I have been to in Asia. The staff are attentive, the ambience perfect for a romantic evening and the food sublime. I had one of the signature set menus and my wife ordered à la carte each dish brought to our table (there were very many) was delicious. The head chef... More

Food is so-so , expected better with all the seemed- so -nice reviews , indoor set up is bright and other patrons were talking so loud. No strict dress-code ,would never expected to see anyone in flip-flops in such posh looking place ( from the outside) .

ThierrySaigon, Owner at La Villa French Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear Stephanie, Thank you for visiting us, we are sorry your experience with us was "so-so", however your review is a bit lacking details. Concerning dress code we do prefer "smart casual" and this is written down on the confirmation email we sent to our guests, in a tropical country difficult to impose each customer to wear a tie and...

I wanted to come here since a long time but somehow it slipped through my mind since so many new, hip restaurants kept coming up in town. Surprisingly, while couldnt make a booking at another restaurant on our anniversary, I called to La Villa and got a table immediately. Having heard a lot of glowing reviews about this place, however... More

First time was with my husband. Second time was with my husband and a friend. Both times were perfect experiences. Food is fantastic. Cheeses to die for. Love the edible flowers on the dishes and the personal touch of the owner on every table. Will definitely go back again.

we had the discovery menu. food was delicious, perfectly served and with the right temperature. Service is very attentive, but not intrusive. Without any doubt the best restaurant in Hi Chi Minh City if you are fan of fine dining and french cousine.

Past glamour mixed with good and consistent french food. Its not cheap but if you are looking for nostalgia and decent french cuisine then this is it. Staff are friendly and accommodating. If I were being honest, the food was good but not especially memorable. But everyone who visits HCMC seem to go there. Safe choice.

Dined here on 24 Sept on recommendation from friends. Fabulous experience. We'd been looking forward to it as the highlight of our 3 days in HCMC and were not disappointed. The restaurant is in a characterful villa 15-20 mins by taxi from District 1 - but do not let this deter you. Ask the driver to use the GPS -... More

This restaurant was fantastic and a welcome change to Vietnamese food, albeit our meals have been excellent. We had a group of 9 with 4 children and they were very accomodating. The service was excellent and whilst it was on the expensive side, everyone thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the night and food so no one was complaining. Great place... More
