When one is tired & not feeling adventurous but want a solid & reliable recommendation for dinner, one chooses this place - the staff are most attentive, very pleasant, & extremely accommodating, one cannot but feel great in anticipation of that dinner - but even before the 1st course is served, one is already dazzled with Amuse Bouche galore &...

I wished they were nearer home. The attention to details and the personal service is only found in "one-offs" like La Villa where Dad & Daughter are the ones taking your order and properly pouring a good bottle of wine. The Menu is extensive and the food is delicious. Well Done!

I have dines at La Villa on countless occasions from 2010 to date. Thiery who is the chef and owner and his wife Tina ensure an excellent dining experience coupled with a service culture amongst the staff that make any evening at La Villa memorable. Great wine selection and a menu that is refreshed every few months or so. It... More

La Villa Restaurant is located quiet far from our hotel. Despite the distance we decided to celebrate / dine at la Villa on the NYE of 2016. The Set-Menu (Degustation Menu) was well set out by the Chef and Owner. Service, ambiance was great. We felt like being in France - the setting is very classical / old fashioned. The... More

Visited this French restaurant for the first time with my family of 9. I booked well in advance telling them specific food allergies that my 9 year old son has. The staff were very attentive and made every effort to be sure that the food they served my son was safe for him. We arrived at 7pm, walked through a... More

I have been here for many times. In this trip, I have taken my friend from Hong Kong to LA Villa for the lunch. As usual we were greeted at the entrance by a friendly lady who led us to a table by the side of the window. It was a rainy day but the view of the outdoor garden... More

Vietnam is a fantastic place, but sometimes you feel the need for something other than Pho :) La Villa was a lovely experience. Food was very good, great wines, and excellent service. Duck was perhaps a little tough but very flavourful, and as another review has noted the beef samosa didn't quite fit with the rest of the menu. Cheese... More

Great classic French food, beautifully presented, impeccable but friendly service, lovely old building and garden. Classy, but not over the top - La Villa is perfect for a celebration, or take the opportunity to experience a fun fine dining experience for about the same as you would pay for a fairly mediocre meal in Australasia, Europe or North America. Set... More

I'm French and I've tried this supposed to be "French" restaurant. The food was not good at all but the inside decoration and spirit was good. I don't recommend this restaurant for French people that could make the difference. Even an average Brasserie restaurant in France would beat Villa French Restaurant.
