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.

“Excellent food and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

They have all kinds of Vietnamese, Italian and Mexican food, all of it is nice and tastes well. The service is really good also. I especially recommend the nachos, the Thai curry and the quesadillas.

“Excellent meal and value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is my favourite spot in Dalat! The coffee is great, the food is so tasty and the atmosphere is something you have to experience for yourself! If you are Dalat be sure to drop in at Vcafe and make it to the terrace for a nice afternoon! We enjoyed a live music the evening too:))))) Will come back!

“My first time in Dalat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

Thanks to the owners Curtis and his lovely wife Ms Thuy. My first time in Dalat was wonderful. The atmosphere, food and service at V-Cafe was amazing. Loved the Thai Green Curry, Steak with red wine sauce, Chicken Breast with steamed vegetables.

I stayed for 6 days at their Dalat Train Villa. Wonderful views, comfortable and very safe and secure.

Thanks for having me I will be back.

Kind regards

Keith

“Good food, service lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

The food and ambience was excellent with fabulous music. There were lots of staff but the service was lacking. We would have had more to drink and eat and stayed longer if the staff had taken the time to attend to us and the restaurant was nearly empty. They spent too much time talking amongst themselves and not to the guests.

“In a food desert, V Cafe is an oasis.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

First of all, we've been to Da Lat numerous times over the past few years. To put it politely, the food here sucks. There's a few decent options, but nothing to write home about. V Cafe delivers the goods. If you try one thing, have the goulash. But, they do good breakfast, sandwiches, and pizza as well. Never have had a bad experience in the V Cafe. Add in some fantastic live tunes at night and good music during the day(no house, pop, and techno garbage) and you've got a great place. The wait staff is pretty average, but welcome to Vietnam. A must stop when in Da Lat.
