I moved to Hanoi a week ago and I was delighted to come across this place. It has nice decor and friendly service. However, the best service in the world cannot make up for bad food. I ordered warm goat cheese salad. This turned out to be three slices of goat cheese on some toasted slices of bread, and these... More

Dear sir, my apologies for your unexpected experience at La Salsa. I would like to confirm with you that once our clients are not happy with the food, leave food on dishes as full or almost full, we wont charge any money ever. However, as we observed, you did finish the dish quite well with a few salad left. Therefore,... More

I visited La Salsa with my mother for lunch. We tried a few tapas's, served on lettuce without any nice texture. Quality was below average. We even had to return one from of the dishes (fried calamari). For the main dish we decided to try the Seafood Paella. Was simply awful. No way a paella can be ready within 15... More

We dined at La Salsa on a Saturday evening in June as a group of six. We were delighted by our choice. La Siesta provides a great taste of Europe and a welcome change if you fancy a break from the local Vietnamese cuisine. The menu consists of a varied selection of French and Spanish dishes so there's probably something... More

It is very few we can have a nice Spanish in Ha Noi and this is the one of best now. The restaurant is located near Tay Ho and has good view and nice interior. They do not have lunch menu and need more clean, these two are challenging situation I think.

After high recommendations for this place, we tried it out. It wasnt long after ordering that our food started to appear. Seafood is so fresh and tasty (didn't expect it to be do flavoursome) and vegetarian dishes great too! Lovely welcoming staff are always on hand and a really relaxed environment. Lyn the manager is so sweet and will go... More

Read about this restaurant on T/A and thought we would give it a try, it's a little hidden away so had to resort to google maps to find it, so we were about 1/2 hr late and the staff were worried about us, once we arrived they were very polite and efficient, tapas was quickly served and very tasty, along...

La Salsa is a cozy restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The wait staff is very attentive. Our kids wanted burgers and were happy with their selection. We opted for tapas: toasted bread with tomatoes, olives, an omelette with potatoes, ham croquettes, meatballs, and a bell pepper salad. The portion sizes were what one should expect for tapas and the presentation... More
