This place is located just adjacent to the building of the museum of Vietnamese National History - the one with prehistoric artefacts. We were to be visiting the museum and had arrived without realising they have a leisurely lunch when the museum is closed to visitors. So as we had time on our hands, we decided to stop here. We...

Not bad food, worth a visit for quick easy international food. Good service. Some language barriers with staff though. Very clean and air conditioned

Average food (we had the Caesar salad), average drinks and incredibly bad service. Our plates were left for 45 minutes on our table after we finished eating (until we paid). Not that the waiters were busy, only 4 tables were occupied. Nice location but sorry: never again.

Nice food, nice surroundings but a bit pricey. Cover charge and says VAT not included but bill seemed to say otherwise.

Why travel to Hanoi? If you want to hang out with a bunch of toffs, go to your local banking precinct. Food is fine, pricey for the area, clientele are very self involved.

Food was ok by local standards with a mix of western and Vietnamese. Somewhat sparse on the servings. One morning an omelette was ordered and fried eggs with ham was brought out. When questioned they insisted it was an omelette. Obvious mistake and slow service. Good for the convenience but better to be had in town at a better price.
