Sat on the balcony looking over night market. Do that if you can. There are Western and Viet options. Everything was good and cheap by Western standards. The tasting menus looked like an especially good value.

My wife and I enjoyed a very nice dinner here of foie gras and matched wine and the jambon mango entrees, the duck and the roasted vegetable mains, a bottle of French wine and a cointreau appertif. The venue was beautiful and the service impeccable. The bill was a shade under 2,000,000 dong but that was mostly the cost of... More

We went with friends to celebrate a birthday, engagement and anniversary. Renaud was fantastic, the set menu at 15 usd would still be a bargain at 100.... Delicious! And great wine too and even desert wine. The a la carte was so good we could go back every night!

We found this wonderful little restaurant while walking around the town. What a great night. The foi gras was to die for and we all had the Australian beef for main course very tender and very tasty. The beer was icy cold and the French wine very nice. The host was excellent. It's is nice to see the owner on... More

Since coming to Hoi An and learning of all the great food options, both Western and Vietnamese, it was hard to sort through the choices. This one is certainly worth a try though. The location is perfect- out of the way of the usual central touristy area, but a close walk over the charming Lantern Bridge and always accessible to... More

We ate dinner on the upstairs balcony that overlooks the street. The service was exceptional. We split a bottle of wine, and shared several of the starters. The bruschetta with gorgonzola and ham, the goat cheese, the cheese with honey and mango and the fries. All were delicious. I would highly recommend if you grow tired of Vietnamese food, and...

Nice tapas (try the bruschetta with ham) and excellent steaks with green pepper sauce. Creme brulee is a must, my friend had the chocolate cake which was very nice too. The wine list carries mostly French references and they have a great sangria. The setting is beautiful, king of ethnic-chic with lots of bamboo (hence the name?). Will definitely be... More

The ambiance/decoration of this restaurant is very good as is the service. However, the food left much to be desired. If you were expecting 8 out of 10 in terms of food quality and paying 4/10 in terms of price (as compared to real French food) ... you should adjust your expectations to 4/10 in terms of food quality and...

Dear World traveller, Yes, there are better French restaurants in Hanoi and HCMC, we agree on that. Checking you bill, I see that you had a gaspacho and a grilled steak. These might not have been the best choices if you wanted a culinary experience, as they are good but not very adventurous options. Maybe you could have tried our... More
