Each time I went to Beijing, I had lunch at Nuage. I shall not anymore. The location is beautiful with a view on Qian Hai lake and an old building with a very warm feel.
However, this is expensive for Beijing standards (I do not remember how much but the USD15 to 25 range advertised on Tripadvisor sounds correct), the food is good but not exceptional (Vietnamese food can sometimes be really nice, try Nha Trang in Hong Kong) and the service is awful.
This time I rembembered that this had been the case already when I came to Beijing two years ago and I had better remember before entering the restaurant!
The waitresses do not smile, are not responsive when you try to catch their attention and are not helpful. English is poor which is acceptable in Beijing but a bit surprising in such a location and a restaurant which obviously targets tourists (you will always find some westerners attracted by the beautiful venue)
There is a Chinese restaurant next door : much less romantic, without view and with the Chinese feel of busy, loud restaurants. If you are looking to eat something nice only, try this one instead.
