Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Be prepared to be ripped-off! Having booked the Set Menu, our group was sufficiently confused by the waiter's description of the contents of The Set Menu, that we sought clarification from the owner, who was oversighting the process. When the owner's description was repeated back...to him, identifying the dishes that we wanted and their 'inclusion' in the Set Menu, he confirmed that they were indeed included. After enjoying, the delicious, entre and mains that followed, we were gobsmacked to receive a bill four times that of the Set Menu. At this point we were informed that we had strayed from the Set Menu. Given the other Reviews listed on the topic, it is obvious that we were not the first to be defrauded in this manner.More

My wife and I visited this restaurant last week after a friend recommended it. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes, which made it a bit challenging to decide. However, with the help of the staff, we ended up choosing the brunch set. While...everything wasn't absolutely perfect, overall it was still quite satisfying. The restaurant staff spoke English and were quite friendly. The place was clean and had a beautiful view overlooking the river. It's worth a visit!More

We were really surprised about the steak in this restaurant. The beef was very tender, very fresh. I advise you to try the steak with medium rare, it will surprise you. The appetizers were very interesting, I was quite surprised with the bone marrow, i...like the rose vinegar rare oysters,... Thank you.More

What should have been a nice last dinner in Vietnam turned out to be a rip off. Our advice: don’t find out for yourself and book a table at a really nice restaurant where you can leave without feeling like a walking ATM. Luckily not...representative for our other culinary experiences in Vietnam.More

The TET Menu is very delicious. The team is friendly and supportive. A well designed, well managed and well run restaurant. Not cheap.

We wanted to make a reservation at this place until they told us we could not have the steak cooked the way we like. They only do medium. Absolutely ridiculous!

Botea has the best cut in steak in the Da Lat area we have found. However they sure have their opinions on how to cook it for you. As a paying customer, we should be able to order the steak to our liking and not...be told how to like it. They insisted that the most cooked they would be willing to serve it was medium, when it came it was rare on the inside. It almost seems they don’t have the skills to cook a thick steak without fear of burning it on the outside. After much debate asking for medium well (pink inside ok) they said medium was the best they could do. I told them I cannot have my steak mooing at me. They gave me a hot plate to cook the steak further on my own. This certainly was a good compromise, but I did not think I had gone to a Korean bbq place where I needed to cook my steak on my own. The friendliness of the staff, owner and restaurant ambience was very pleasant. This was their saving grace to maintain at least a 4 star rating versus lower one. We will definitely go back and give it another chance, I hope they will come down to earth and serve what the customer is asking for versus how they think it should be.More

Ribeye steaks great and highly recommend . Both ribeye and tenderloin bought for a dinner party at home and grilled myself at Home. Botea Bistro is a great place to either dine in or for direct private orders from their shop with direct local home...delivery in DaLat. Has been the best quality meats that I have eaten while living in Vietnam. 👍More

Choosen this restaurant on the basis of the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Nice décor and ambience and friendly, My friend and I, we both ordered the steak in wine sauce with potatoes and the whole meal was fantastic. Lovely potatoes, and...the best steak I have ever tasted (and I've tasted quite a few!). It was really 'melt in your mouth'. Unfortunately we were only staying for one night in Da Lat but I am sure that at some stage in the future we will be visiting this lovely restaurant again. Thanks the owner Ms Lilian :)More
