“Fabulous Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Our family ate here whilst staying at the hotel (Victoria). The prices are in line with the quality of the hotel - around £15 per person. The French & Vietnamese food was excellent, especially the green mango & dried fish salad which was bursting with local flavours. Not so impressed with the pasta main courses although the prawn ravioli bisque starter was a winner. Fabulous service, staff couldn't have been more helpful & friendly. Décor lacks character - eat outside overlooking the river if you can stand the heat.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the Victoria overnight between Xmas and New years eve.
We were lucky enough to enjoy dinner at this restaurant and I am still salivating over it 2 days later.

Of particular note, I ordered the daily special which was salmon and trout tartar and it was amazing. Truly spectacular!

We also enjoyed the complimentary refilled bread basket which had the best bread we have had in Vietnam.

Service was friendly and efficient.

Wish we had stayed longer so I could have had the tartar again!

I think precious reviewers might have been playing their orders safe as all the French inspired food was outstanding.

“vietnamese food with a twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

We were staying at the Victoria and - after a quick walk around Can Tho - decided that the "safest" option was dinner at Spices. We had looked at the menu and were expecting an ok meal, so were very pleasantly surprised by the different flavours in some of the dishes. The chef is French and there is clearly a foreign influence in the menu. The service was attentive and warm. The portions are huge, and we could not finish some of the dishes. I would rare the restaurant excellent if it wasn't for the so how shabby decor, tat does not make the restaurant enticing.
