“Villa Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

A French Villa in the middle of a bustling street was a nice find. It was our most expensive meal ($60 for two with a bottle of wine) but still far less expensive than our normal dinners in the US. Great presentation of the food and service. We enjoyed sitting upstairs by the window and looking out watching the courtyard.

“Out of the hustle bustle of Ha Noi streets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

It was great to find this restaurant after walking the hot, humid streets of Ha Noi. We sat in the outer courtyard where it was cool but bright and had lunch. My husband only had a beer but I chose the Raviolis. The dough was soft and transparent and the filling vegetarian with a reduced balsamic sauce. Delicious. I also had a dessert, the Passion Fruit tart with meringue. Also very very french and lovely. I would have loved to come back for dinner, however, we were on a tour and busy busy. Next time.

“Great ambience, good + interesting food, pricey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

The courtyard and both floors of the restaurant are indeed pretty, and beautifully decorated - French/Asian eclectic. The staff were pleasant and unobtrusive. Clientele were mostly tourists. The food is interesting fusion. We chose straight forward items - for starters duck liver tiramisu, plus a crab dish; followed by rabbit stew with assorted risottos, plus duck breast with a tomato tart. Nothing pretentious, though menu descriptions are complex. The house wines chosen (a sav blanc and a cab sav) were very good. Bottled wines are expensive. The total bill for cocktails, starters, mains and 2 x glasses of wines each was D1,875k was not unreasonable. An enjoyable dining experience.

“The food tasted as good as it looked”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

This place was an absolute pleasure, you cannot experience food like this for less than a few hundred dollars each in ANY other country. Enjoy this place, food is a simple pleasure, but this takes dining to a whole new level.
Location is easy to find, the staff were as pleasant and friendly as expected from Hanoi hospitality. The restaurant itself is very pretty, The smells coming from the kitchen was amazing.

I loved this place. If you are a foodie - this is the place to go. If you dont like forking out a bit more for great food - then go down the road for springrolls and a beer theres a pub just down the road.

“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

The place itself is beautifully decorated and the staff provide good, friendly service. We all had fish courses and we all loved our food. I would highly recommend the ca qua. The cheese board was delicious, as was the coffee and the wine. I cannot praise the food enough: it was one of the best meals I've ever had. It is expensive for Hanoi but it was well worth it, especially as we went for a birthday celebration.
