“A Great French Restaurant”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

We spent 36 days on vacation all over South East Asia,and we chose La Villa to be our last dinner.It was a real treat and the owners came over to our table and made us feel like their friends rather than just customers.The food, decor and service was on par with the best restaurants around the world.It made our trip end with a real Great Dining Experience.

“Wonderful Treat”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

It makes sense to me that one of the best French meals I have had was in Ho Chi Minh. The food was wonderful. And the service was as good as it gets. They made you feel welome and took are of all needs from the time you walk in the door until you leave. It is a bit of a hike from district 1 but so worth it.

“FANTASTIC !”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

We went on a Monday night as the weekends were packed! So do make a reservation if you intend to visit during the weekend.

Not all the staff spoke English, but for the 2 who did, they were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Their suggestions and recommendations were spot on, and we did not regret heeding their advice.
The chef came out to greet us upon arrival, in between our serves and to bid us farewell when we were leaving. He had a very hearty laughter - felt so grandfatherly.

The food was better than any fine dining we had back home, at very reasonable prices.
The foie gras was unlike any I have tasted. Different but sooo soft and soooo good. If you love cheese, you HAVE to go for the cheese platter. A wide range of choices and oh-so-fragrant! (My friend could not stand the smell though).
Their macaroons are unlike the overly sweet and crunchy norm. They were soft, wonderful texture, not too sweet but sweet enough ... it was fantastic! Esp since I bought some macaroons from a different French bakery earlier that day. The comparison was clear.

They have seats by the poolside as well, which was cooling enough. But do step in to take a look at the interior of the restaurant.

I will definitely come back to La Villa when I visit HCMC in future! We are already speaking of coming back every year (:

“Excellent!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

It is our first time in Saigon and we were looking for a good French restaurant and decided to come here based on its review in Tripadvisor and with it being the #1 restaurant in the list. And we did not regret it. Food was very good. Atmosphere was lovely. The bread was glorious. I don't usually eat mashed potatoes but the mashed potatoes with truffle bits was to die for.
