Food was good and reasonably priced. Service was very odd, and there were loss of staff standing around arguing in Vietnamese. Kind of ruins the atmosphere

It was difficult to choose a place to eat in Dalat. so many catering for locals but when I felt like eating something familiar this one was great. the waiter was friendly, the chef obviously had a good understanding of western food....was told that the chef lived and worked in Sydney for a number of years. great place to go for a good feed.

The pizza was on a nice crispy base and very tasty. Chicken with chilli and lemongrass was very good and comes with rice, no need to order separately. Four stars instead of five due to the odd service.

This place had great service combined with excellent food. The staff were really friendly and always smiling, the Vietnamese dishes we tried were fantastic but the nachos are a bit weird. The place was packed all night and everyone there seemed to be enjoying themselves. We are going again before leaving Da Lat.

This is my 4th trip to Dalat and I still haven't discovered an 'Outstanding' restaurant in this lovely town, yet. Chocolate Cafe is well appointed. Homey little place with a couple of outside tables so you can stare at the people eating at the backpacker cafe across the street while they stare back.

I ordered the Bun Bo Hue' which is a dish I am very familiar with. I was the only person in the cafe. Things are very quiet in Dalat right now. The Bun Bo arrived in short time accompanied by a dish of Basil and shredded lettuce. Normally Bun Bo comes with an assortment of different herbs to season the dish with. I had never seen it served with lettuce before which really is a shame given the wide variety of produce available to restauranteurs in Dalat. The broth was poorly made though the noodles were quite tasty.

It would appear that Chocolate Cafe is doing the same thing that every other travel guide recommended eatery is doing and that is to serve the widest assortment of food it can to attract the most customers. Service is great until the food hits the table, as you won't see your server again until you chase him down to pay the bill. This is true at every western eatery in Dalat that I have visited and I've been to quite a few. The best meal I have had so far was a Sea Bass I ate at the 'Dreams' restaurant.
