I had overlooked this place on several occasions and now it's a destination food spot for me. It looks like a cute, but regular cafe out front, but once you make your way into the back you see it's much more than that. The decor is bright and artsy, the staff is ready to please and the food is fantastic.... More

We came here after a very unsatisfying trip to a local bah mi place. The food and service, along with the street view by sitting outside was so good, totally saved our night! We ordered a savory crepe, the tiramisu and iced viet coffee. Everything was delicious, with friendly and attentive service. After chatting with the staff, found out that... More

Clean & nice restaurant in the city center. Food and service were excellent. We went there in the middle of afternoon so didn't have a full meal but crepe and ice cream were excellent.

The restaurant is nice and bright and new with plenty of space in the back. Management and wait staff are attentive and nice. The menu is full of interesting one off French dishes, nothing seeming to be easily tossed together with 2nd or 3rd tier ingredient substitutes. There is an open plan kitchen so it's nice, clean, and easy to... More

I came to Linh & Ben to based on the reviews of other travellers, and I can say that i was absolutely satisfied with the set lunch, which costs 295000VND for a starter, main, and dessert. For the starter, I had their chef's special, which was a salad with 2 pieces of camembert cheese atop slices of baguette. The salad... More

Delicious food just like at home:the asparagus salad, the steak with green pepper and the Saint Jacques gratin were all delicious. A great opportunity to re-discover French classic dishes. Beautiful decoration too.

Nice looking little restaurant in the heart of Hanoi. The decoration is colorful, cute and cozy. However, the food was just ok. We ordered 2 crepes and the snail appetizer. The snail was good but the bread was below average. One of the crepes was overly salty as if they threw the whole bottle of salt in it and we... More

The chef owner Benjamin Rascalou who own with friends the famous "La Badiane" (one of the best restaurant in town if not in Vietnam) strike again. here the concept is more on the french traditional bistro. Quality is there and the team is friendly.
