no matter how you try and put music and food together it just does not mix either the music or the food suffers and this is not true here. I know the owners and love this place as one of my favorite places to go. I live in Texas and miss this place very much so if you are in Dalat stop here and you won't be disappointed, I promise.

After V Cafe we headed just down the street to the Escape Bar in the Blue Moon Hotel. We hit it on a Friday night and the place was buzzing. Full band with a lovely female singer and an American guy playing and singing. Not too loud or too crazy, but just right. Reasonable drink prices and some late night snacks. (Hot dog was delicious... but still feeling the calories!) We asked around for other places with live music at night but this seems to be the place to be. We also got to meet some fellow travellers and ended up going to Nhatrang with them.

We went on the basis that it was number 1 for food on trip advisor in Dalat.

The food was ok. Nothing special but an enjoyable meal. I think the name is reference to maybe the western menu options I.e. burgers, nachos, fish and chips.

In all honesty though its more of a bar than a restaurant and they have live music - unfortunately we missed this. Happy hour is 4-7pm and drinks are buy one get one free for beers and house wine and this makes it good value for money. 40000 dong for a small bottle of beer.

The thing that made this a 3 star instead of a 4 star is the smell. It's in a basement type room and it did smell mouldy. I'm sure you wouldn't notice it after a few beers but whilst eating your meal it was a bit off putting (nothing horrendous though, but we feel that 3 stars is a fair review)

Sorry about that. We had a water leak about a week ago, and it left a bit of a mouldy smell. It's slowly cleared up and back to normal now.

Re the food, we do have a full food and wine menu. Some dishes are prepared at the bar (hot dogs, tortilla chips, cheese platters, etc.) and some are brought in covered hot plates from V Cafe, 50 meters away from the bar.

Glad you enjoyed the place overall. Hope to see you again. Safe travels.
