We had been craving a Chinese meal and could not resist booking the Café Saigon. The menu is extensive and is not only Chinese food but covers a wide variety of tastes. The staff are very professional yet accommodating and helpful and even suggested having a half portion of one of the starters. The waiter explained that a full portion... More

What a fabulous surprise we had a crave a chinese food and here we are at majestic Maria Christina in Cafe Saigon. The menu offers delicate chinese food from delicately battered langoustine, to a perfectly seasoned mix of shrimp and mushroom mixture! Oh, and for finale the crispy Peking Duck, simply savoureux!

Great food and service in a beautiful hotel. I was worried that my jeans and trainers may be a bit underdressed given the extravagance of the hotel, however the matre'd reassured me that my attire was 'perfecto'.

We were lucky to have a food credit courtesy of our travel professional as we were staying at the Maria Christina so we chose Cafe Saigon over the Michelin starred pop-up place next door. The price fixe menu for 2 including a bottle of wine was E84 and included spring rolls, shrimp lettuce wraps, prawns in tomato sauce, and 3... More

Whether you are staying at Maria Cristina or not this restaurant is well worth a visit. The hostess does a first class job and the Chinese chef is excellent. The food is not expensive and the quality is very good. But the best thing was the offer of half portions which meant you could try more choices. What a tremendous... More

If you have had your fill of pintxos, try Cafe Saigon. We had a delicious lunch; local seafood with a Vietnamese flair a winning combination. Service was low key and very professional.

We were very satisfied with our visit to cafe Saigon. Ate two types of spring rolls and a very nice spicy fish curry and Peking duck. Everything was very good in a very nice setting as well in the luxury hotel Christina Maria. Highly recommended if your a bit tired of all the pintxos :)
