“Incredibly unique...”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

A 100+ year old train car nestled on the property of an old french villa is the centre piece of this Cafe/Guesthouse operation. Talk about charm and character - it is here in spades!!! The coach has been beautifully remodelled to be a cozy cafe/eatery while the outdoor patio provides a nice view of Dalat. The Guesthouse aspect of the operation is the french villa itself providing a number of "suites" which include sitting/living room, bedroom and bath. The property is quite large (great for kids) and located in a quiet area near the old train station. This is an ideal destination for a family/romantic getaway or just a nice meal. A good selection of wines and friendly attentive service complete things make this a "must go" place. My only regret was i did not try the food..hmmm... next time....

“Really authentic place, but not for the budget traveller”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Went here after the review on trip advisor but only ended up having coffee. At minimum 120 thousand for a meal plus a drink there are other quality places. Staff very friendly :-) if you want to slash out a bit try this place, if not just pop in for a coffee.

“Great find, dalat's best kept secret”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Only recently opened, this converted train carriage serves a mix of western and local fresh food. We thoroughly enjoyed our fried rice, beef curry, artichoke tea and the superb Vietnamese coffee. Great ambience clean modern amenities, only 1 minute walk from the train station. Highly recommended, direct the taxi drivers to the Railway villas.

“Great food, music and view”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

I stayed at the villa attached to this cafe but spent all my time in the Cafe! Very good food, nice clientele, excellent view, and good music. Even if you are staying at a different hotel, come here for lunch or dinner. You won't want to leave. Walk around and take in the scenery after you eat. There is an old, working train station close by.

“Nice Escape”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Dalat Train Cafe is a wonderful little get away from the hustle of the city cafes and bars, very beautiful and peaceful with wonderful wines and food, especially if you are in the mood for a little western treat, Blue Cheese Burger or Cheese Plate and Wine. Listen to old music from trains and about trains... Very nice escape!
