The bad review in here all seems to fokus on the prices, but getting a bottle of wine or a cheese that has not sat on the back of a scooter in the sun for a day just cost a little more here in Vietnam. And it's well worth to pay, the food really is amazing. Had the onion soup... More

We had lunch here on recommendations from Tripadvisor. It is perhaps a little hard to find as it blends in with all the other shops around it. Its opposite a Catholic(?) Church and Mix (which is a Greek restaurant). It's absolutely worth hunting out. The best western style food we have had since being in Vietnam for three weeks. The... More

Highly recommend this restaurant. My husband and I ate at Refuge while in Nha Trang on our honeymoon. I had a beef steak with sauce au poivre and my husband the alligator - a dish well worth trying, really tasty meat. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, Anthony, who is on hand to guide guests through this authentically French... More

Based on reviews here, I wanted to try Refuge. As a single diner, I felt the physical table setup was uninviting. The bench seats were set up for 4 or 6 to a table. My observation is that less chunky tables and independent chairs (at a comfortable height) would create a more efficient and welcoming ambience. However, the menu was... More

Hi, firstly i would like to say i am glad if you liked my place and my food. The new decoration is in progress,except the bench and the table, will still be almost the same, for sure you will appreciate. I try to set a good balance between price and the food you have in your pate, and apparently i... More

This is an awesome French restaurant. We have been travelling for 4 months and have grown tired of Asian food. This is like a Michelin star restaurant we get back home. Food is delicious and amazing quality. Love it!

While we were holidaying in Nha Trang, saw that this restaurant was listed amongst the top 10 there so thought worth trying it out. There were no disappointments, in fact we went for dinner on two separate nights as we loved it so much the first time. The host was really friendly and helpful in explaining the dishes to us...

This restaurant is small and intimate with great decor. The owner is very welcoming, friendly and eager to please. My husband & I both had the chicken cordon bleu which was delicious. The meals are huge so you won't need an entree! It's a very different experience in Nha Trang being a French restaurant but very worth it.
