“Wonderful staff and charming rooftop”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Being a part of a tour group, finding places to eat in Vietnam that can accommodate large groups is quite a feat. Luckily, one of our tour mates had stumbled along this cafe/restaurant and suggested we do our final dinner there. I am so glad that she did because it was an absolutely lovely experience. The food is good, but it really is the staff and view that makes all the difference. They were able to fit 16 of us on the rooftop, give is separate checks, and not mess up our orders once during our 3+hour dinner. We also had some difficult and finicky personalities in our group, which Avalon Cafe knew how to handle. If we ever had a problem, the manager personally came up to us and dealt with it, which was really nice. Make it a point to check this place out if you have a group while in Hanoi!

“Great service, a bit more expensive.”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Good selection on food. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Theres a great view from the restaurant (theres a few different floors). We actually ended up eating here 3 times, once for lunch, once for dinner, and then again for dinner when we arrived back to Hanoi when beginning our journey home. The food and drinks are a bit more expensive than a lot of others restaurants in Vietnam, however, still very cheap for when you get.

“Cha ca meal”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This was the first time visiting Hanoi and by pure coincidence, we arrived at Avalon café lounge. I was really delighted with the cha ca fish. Really astonishing. I was so pleased to eat in a really nice place with a magnificient view on Hanoi. I really enjoyed the soirée and everyone working in that establishment is really friendly. Thank you.

“Good food good view”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Our dinner was great , the menu was clear so what you think you have ordered you actually get . The staff were attentive , friendly and spoke clear English . The price for our meal was not expensive and we had a bonus - the view of hoan kiem lake .
We sat on the balcony and was very comfortable as the outside fans are effective . We would definitely return here and suggest it to friends. .
