I did find it strange that the bathroom is unisex, in the way that there is 3 stalls in one bathroom. For fine dining environment thats just strange. However the bathroom was very well kept. 3. It is simply too... More

We were a party of five on a Saturday evening. Food by chef Thierry was excellent and we were kept fed throughout the four hours. Service team led by Tina was great! Certainly a top address when you visit HCM City! Call ahead to reserve.

Visited La Villa for dinner with some business associates to cap off our Ho Chi Minh trip. Located away from the hustle and bustle of pretty much everything else, the little restaurant was a pleasant surprise in many ways. The ambiance was great - quiet, simple, yet elegant. In fact, it was rather informal. Perhaps I am just used to... More

My Son and his friends visited last month and celebrated two of their birthdays at this beautiful villa cum restaurant. They all had a fabulous time! I remember going two years ago and it was also a great experience. Keep up the good work!

My wife and I are from the bay area and have eaten at many Michelin starred restaurants in San Francisco, Napa and New York. There are so many great places to eat in Vietnam spending $300 for a meal that does not knock your socks off just does not seem worth it. The wine pairings did not go with the... More
