“One of the few fine dining experiences in Ho Chi Minh City”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

I have been already a few times to this restaurant. Every single time was a five star experience. Very refined cuisine, quality service, nice atmosphere. If you are looking for that extra touch in terms of fine dining, this is the place to be. Great for business lunches also.

“A dinner to remember”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

My partner and I were dining here not too long ago and we found everything to be perfect from tartine starter (must try) through to the chocolate and vanilla macaroon. The service was amazing, a strange but entertaining swedish gentelman spent quite some time with us. Good job!

“Excellent food, and beautiful wines”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

L'Oliver restaurant is an ideal place for a long business dinner right in the centre of Saigon. Clearly French cuisine but the chef managed to surprise us with excellent flavors and beautiful presentation. We had dinner with a business group and the service was very good as well. They have an excellent choice of wines. I would recommend this place not only to visitors or hotel guests but expats and Vietnamese too.
