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.

“A great night out in Dalat”

Had a fabulous meal in this lovely bistro; would highly recommend both the lasagne and the pizza! The service was extremely attentive yet the atmosphere relaxed. The live music was also excellent.

“Good food, good music had a great evening.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

I had a really good night. The music was good and the home made nachos and lasagna were excellent.

V cafe was a nice change in Dalat as it was a little more up market than a lot of the back packer places and catered for a more western tatstes which we did not find anywhere else in Dalat, which predominantly catered for locals.

The service was okay and only sufferend as our waiters english was not tip-top.

A nice touch was when four older french patrons came in. The American guy singing greeted them in french and played them a few songs in french which I thought was a nice touch. Really laid back atmosphere.

I would really recommend this place.

“An amazing holiday experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2010

Most of the food is good and some is outstanding. But it is the music and the atmosphere that separates this place from all the others. Low key, relaxing and a refreshing change from staring at a TV all night.
