Had a delightful experience at this little restaurant in Dalat with some special friends. Meal was good with lots of choice... A little bit of a French influence. Owned by a local and very talented artist who entertained everyone by sharing his painting skills. Some places you are serenaded with music but here he goes from table to table and shows his skills as a finger painter. Best surprise is when he gives each couple the painting to take home as a souvenir to remember the night. Staff are all friendly and I would recommend this restaurant to any travelers visiting Dalat. Only thing to avoid is the local champagne....not to everyone's taste! Stick to beer or wine.

Was travelling solo at this stage, and I had a great meal in this restaurant. I had a long chat with the owner, who's a really nice guy, and my burger was delicious. Then at the end of the meal he said he'd like to paint me a picture for free, which was really cool. It was amazing to see his technique, and he painted this beautiful picture in about 4 minutes using just his hands.

Very tasty food and great service...the price was right including a large beer. Very nice people run it and speak good English. Clean and somewhat of a view if you are near the door.

It's hard to find a good place to eat in Da Lat, but 'News And New Art Cafe' is absolutely an exception. We went there this night and was so satisfied, that vi must recommend this place right away even though we're on holiday :o)
The atmosphere at the restaurant is very nice. It's relaxed, comfortable, nice and very clean and proper. The owner, who is an artpainter was in the restaurant himself and made us a painting for free. And you really feel, that he is doing it of his heart. There is no pressure of buying more.
His staff is smiling and very helpfull. When we should leave the restaurant, it was raining a lot, and the kindly waitress offered to call a taxi and followed us to the car with an umbrella.
The dinner was also great. We had garlicbread for appetizer. My husband choosed fish, my daughter steamed rice with chicken and I some pork with mushroom sauce. For dessert we choosed chokolate pancake with banana, flan of caramel with ice and fruit salad. Everything was great, served with a smile - and the price: It's great value for money.
We woud definately eat here every night, if we should stay longer in Da Lat.
Be aware, that there's a cafe called 'Art Cafe' on the same street. Our recommendations goes to 'News And New Art Cafe'. All the best to the nice and dedicated owner and crew!

This restaurant was by far our favorite in the whole of vietnam. The whole package was unique, a combination of art, music, good food and lovely service. The owner, very talented painter named Dien, tries to make the experience as good as possible for all the customers. He draws a painting, using his unique style, at the table for every dinner party in about 10 mins. Its awesome to see him make it for you and you get a wonderful souvenir of Dalat. I fully recommend this restaurant, for the experience is great and the prices are very reasonable. So just go there already and enjoy!
