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. Location: The V Cafe is about 200m from the lake (Xuan Huong Lake) up Bui Thi Xuan street. Opening hours: 7:00 a.m. until about 10:30pm (a bit later on weekends and eves of public holidays)

“Good option for a western style meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

After a couple of weeks of Vietnamese street food we decided to take an easy option for our second and last night in Dalat. Let's face it, there aren't many great food options in town. Why?? But V Cafe did the job. Expensive for Vietnam but still very cheap really: less than £5 each for main course, cheeky chips and Dalat red wine. Enjoyed cheesy live music too!

“good western food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

They have nice western foods. Had tomato soup and hamburger for lunch and they were all good. Don't remember the name but had a salad with lotus root inside and highly recommend it. We were there for lunch but seemed like it would have better atmosphere at night.

“2 fun nights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

We had 2 fun nights here and met some good people. While we have been here they have and an oozy duo playing, Peter and Paul. Good blokes and good music. It's a busy little place so you might have to wait for a table, we just sat at the bar and had a few drinks until a table was available. We all enjoyed our meals and the entertainment.
