“Skip the booze and enjoy the food.”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

The pizza is really good, if not a little small. The chips and salsa aren't really chips and salsa at all, but somehow they are still delicious. Drinks were good, except for the margarita I ordered later in the evening. There was almost no tequila in it, so it was a disappointment. But besides the margarita, I would highly recommend this place.

“Average nothing special”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

The spag Bol wasn't great but the chicken with mash and veg was quite nice, there just wasn't enough of it. The music was too loud though. It also send food over to the Escape bar.

“Getting too old for these joints!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Over-rated but an interesting spot to take in the night lights of Dalat. Music was so loud that talk was impossible.

Thanks for the note. This a good reminder for us to keep the volume down and we will pass this comment to the musicians. The intention has always been for the acoustic music to be at a volume over which people can enjoy a conversation.

Of course, there is a dining room next to the main room, where the volume from the music is much lower.

Safe travels.

“Great night out on the town in Dalat”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Run by the same people who run our train hotel, this was recommended to us for a night out. Pleasantly cozy atmosphere, with light acoustic live music. The wine list was surprisingly thorough. The soups, salads, and mains that we tried were all of generous portions, hot, and tasty. Friendly staff, helpful with a few travel tips and getting taxis. Overall a great night out in Dalat.

“cool ambient”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We went in not expecting much as our budget would keep us far from high cuisine.
Little did we know we were in for a treat. Really nice music.
The food was very good.
Our waiter was very atentive.
