“Great place to discover French cuisine at reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The food is good, not excellent (for high end I would recommend La Verticale which is nearby) but it's a very good place to discover French cuisine (and wine) with good value for money. The last time I was there it was only 158K for entry, main course and dessert. Caution: except weekend when the menu price is almost double!

“quality has been maintained..prices have crept up steadily, but still good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

there has been a definitive improvement in the service, which is heartening...whilst the set lunch is not quite the bargain it used to be, I far prefer that the quality be maintained, than shortcuts taken..that said, the quality of the steak is not what it used to be..the gougeres were appalling (an a la carte order), no excuse at all for this..I shall certainly return, but it will be interesting to see how long the value proposition can be maintained..

“Great Lunch Sets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

They have an excellent choice of lunch sets at an excellent price of VD 135,000, a great value even in Hanoi. Ate there once as a tourist in end- July 2012 and my wife who works in Hanoi has eaten there 8 times since bringing along her friends who all enjoyed the menu. I particularly liked the steak and my wife really loved the cream puff with ice cream filling and the banana cake with ice cream. Highly recommended!

“quality of food as good as ever..service is still rather clumsy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

this is still the best value lunch venue in Ha Noi, if not Viet Nam! great bread, excellent salade nicoise..couscous royale was a huge portion, and the ice cream generously "scooped"..service is improving, its always been obliging, but still needs attention

“The best onion soup in Hanoi apart from my house.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

I love this place. The lunch time menu is incredible value with a great selection that will constantly surprise if you take a few risks. Given the price you can! Steak and chips are boring (and a bit rubber here to tell you the truth but most other things are good)! It is quite informal which I like and the diners have an air of satisfaction in knowing this privileged secret. The A La Carte and dinner menu are more expensive compared to the lunch time menu but they are still very good value, definitely no more expensive than a bistro dinner elsewhere. They have some tasty treats that are worth it. Mmm the sardines that took me back to the south of Spain. Remember this is a bistro..not a stuffy restaurant...France's answer to everyday food.. the French way. The staff always try their best although sometimes they make mistakes but they are so nice and very helpful. Try speaking Vietnamese for a change and see how far you get! It's not easy! I just wish they would turn off the TV. I will miss this place a lot.
