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.

“Not as good as we expected”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We went to V cafe due to the good comments from trip advisor. Maybe we did not order right food. the beef steak isn't juicy, a little bit tough for my teeth. the green curry with chicken is okay but not a surprise. However, the fresh strawberry juice is really good, highly recommend.

“Nice atmosphere, good music but food was disappointing”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We could not see how this place can be the number one restaurant in Dalat on tripadvisor. Yes, the place looks great, atmosphere and music are good. The food couldn't keep up, though. Only the starters (spring rolls) were delicious, the mains where all pretty bland.

“much potential, but not there yet”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

we went here twice, but both times were dissapointed with the food. Tried the curry and the goulash which just wasn't more than pub food. Music is great the atmosphere is great, just sort out the menu. In my opinion there is too much stuff on the menu. Clear out the menu with just a few things which they can make and you have a potential winner.

“Good food & atmosphere”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This restaurant seems to have the best business in Dalat & it's not surprising as it has a great atmosphere, friendly staff & good food at reasonable prices. The Vietnamese & Western food were good & not tasteless like some places..The portions were really filling & at night they have live music at an ok sound level.
