Cafe Cardinal


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2017 - 2019 Winner

Location and contact

One of Southeast Asia's most distinctive, all-day dining venues, Café Cardinal delivers stunning views of Saigon and a tempting take on Sebastien Schneider and his chefs at work in an artfully designed show kitchen. Its extensive menu is decidedly French, with deliberate detours into complementary Western and Asian cuisines.
