One of the best meals we have had in Vietnam. Servings were perfectly sized and wonderfully cooked and presented. We were there when the were having a half price sale on New World wines. A great deal on some outstanding wines. Planning on returning at least one before we leave Saigon in a few days.

During a recent visit to HCMC stumbled into this upscale winebar annex restaurant. It's something for the lovers of French food & wine as the entire wine list is French and the menu has a lot of French influences too, combined with some SE Asian twist. White wines were on a 50% discount so could sample a few - it is not cheap - and the sea bass was just awesome, something I would rate at 1* Michelin even. It's a bit of a posh, modern place, that may need some more vibrancy - or the timing of my visit was not right - but I can highly recommend this place for high level wining & dining.

We snuck in here for the lunch special and I'm very glad we did. Quite a swanky little outfit, huge wine glasses, cream coloured leather chairs, polished concrete floors etc.

Given Vietnam doesn't seem big on wine it was nice to find a place that appreciated a It.

The food was incredibly tasty. We had the set menu, best carpaccio I have ever had, an interesting duck dish I've never seen before but would love to have again and an overall atmosphere not unlike a Top rating Sydney restaurant but for a 5th of the price. We are hoping to go back next week and try out the dinner menu.

We had a lunch set in this bar expecting a fusion food of a kind of mixture between East and West. Instead we had basic food from a simpliest brasserie. The portions are small and a bit expensive for what we had. Probably, we expected too much from a wine bar with such a stylish decoration. But wine is good and priced correctly.

The wine for the prices you pay is outstanding. Quality French you cannot even get in a bar in Melbourne. Margeaux, Chateau Angelus and Rothschild amazing and good value. The fit out and ambience fantastic and is a quiet respite from the humming noise of the streets. Food was great cheese a big hit.
