We were on the last city of a 15 day trip with 37 others on Gate1.
There were 7 of us that went to Au Lac, on recommendation of our tour guide. It is supposed to be a fusion of Vietnamese/French. Restaurant was excellent, as was the service. They understood what was asked, service was prompt, and they knew enough to leave us alone at times.
We each ordered something and then shared, family style. Highlight was a 1kg groupa (fish), which was brought to our table and the 'final' cooking stage done there. Excellent food all around.
Probably the restaurant is a bit more expensive than others, but well worth it.
Others from our tour group came in later, and sat out on the veranda and said it was very pleasant out there and they also raved about the food and service.
Total bill with 2 soft drinks (wine paid separately) for 7 people was about $105 US

the venue is perfect, an old French villa that has not been restored. food was ok. weak to non existent wifi. unhelpful staff. The service, however, was chaotic. it took 4 attempts to get the correct starter delivered, crab rolls served to a vegetarian etc etc, in the end we all left feeling rather stressed by the experience and will not return.

The restaurant is housed in an old villa and it has a lot of charm. If you can, try a table on the veranda. The food is traditional vietnamese but the chef can add a little twist to it. Try the fixed menus since they are a very good deal. The food is delicious, perfectly prepared and the service is attentive.
