Description: The V Cafe is the home of LIVE MUSIC and great food in the central highlands of Vietnam.The story...Opened in 2002 by long-term Vietnam resident, Dr. Michael Sterling, the V Cafe carries on the tradition of good food and good value, and is now adding a "taste of the blues," as Curtis King and friends light up the V Cafe with their live blues and acoustic music.The menu... A great mix of Western favorites (including some of the best Mexican and tastiest pizzas in Vietnam), a smattering of Asian dishes, including a few Vietnamese all-time favorites (pho, spring rolls, etc.) Vegetarian? You'll enjoy a full selection of Vegetarian dishes, including some great curries. Good selection of local and imported beers and wines. (No MSG added to our food.)We've added a great breakfast menu, and are opening up early for travelers wanting to get an early start before heading out to see Dalat.Nightly live music - acoustic, rock 'n' roll, blues, folk, country, international.Free WIFI.Delivery within Dalat!Smoking section outdoors.

Suspicious review?

I find it hard to believe that somebody would go through the trouble of setting up a t.a. account in order to write 1 review consisting of 2 sentences.

“Thank god”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

After having our 2 year old son refuse food for days, he finally ate a hawaiian pizza from V Cafe. We didn't get to eat much of it, but what we had was great, and the smoothies were good too.

“Excellent food & ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

We went on a rainy night and found the perfect spot. On spite of some reviews on TA, the food came up quickly and was excellent.

The service was kind and spoke enough English. On addition to that, they had a young man singing live who really earned his tip (western pop & rock), although he didn't really sing any jazz/blues.

At last, the brownie was really good according to my wide, who is a world-known expert!
