Whenever I stay in Dalat, we come to Vcafe for at least one night. Good food, good atmosphere with live music and a friendly team of staffs, who will be more than happy to chat and share with you all the local knowledge. Will definitely recommend it to anyone who are planing to visit Dalat.

“Good food, good music, great service; nice vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

Dalat's V Cafe continues to be one of the best eateries in town, not only for its good food at a good value, but also its great service - and, of course, quality live music. Easy to make friends there. Good mix of locals and ex-pats from all over, including recently a group of golfers from Singapore. (And if folks from that famously "foodie" city like this place, that's quite an endorsement!) Another measure of success is the number of similarly-named places nearby, including one directly across the street. But don't be fooled: ask the taxi driver for the simply-named V Cafe.

“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Good service and average food. Nothing special.
We had some take away food; burrito, pork chops and aubergine.
The pork was good size portion but the burrito was a bit too small and didn't taste like a burrito.
It was OK for Western food in Vietnam.

“Nice, convenient, ok food, live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Nearly Opposite the sinh bus 'terminal'. Not really a proper bar, more eating when I was there. A lot of people seemed to be eating western food. I tried a hot spicy beef salad, quite Thai like and very tasty. When I was there eating, I enjoyed some pleasant acoustic song covers from a local musician. Van Morrison, Neil Young, Floyd, Adele, even a bit of the Dead. Unfortunately not the cheapest place around, but pleasant enough.
