“Yuck”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Nice everything except the food. Enchilada was not an enchilada. The dough around it was raw. Beefsteak was too salty to eat. Portions small. Lonely planet strikes again.

“Great Location-- Solve the "Art Cafe" Mystery of Its History”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Personally: Food was excellent, they had special breakfast (called the "Dali") that I get hungry thinking about right now. Personally I feel this particular Art Cafe was started with good intention. I have checked out all 3 art cafe restaurants... the first one (a few years back), this one "Art Cafe" and the News and New Art Cafe. Before you eat at any of them--ask around town to find the true story behind the restaurants, then when you visit also ask for the story and look at the owners eyes and you will know which one has the good heart and which one is a driven by greed. If you feel good-eat at your heart content. If you feel something not right--do not support. Dalat needs more businesses with heart + love for food and less who are chasing $. Pros: Both restaurants are in a central location

“Good quality food”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the overall look of this place and I enjoyed my beef stuffed with cheese with mashed potatos and veggies. Prices are good. It is worth it to stop and have dinner here.

“Relaxing palace”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This restaurant looked really too posh for us backpackers and abit expensive, but when you got in there the service was excellent and the food was good viettnamese food. The best thing about this good atmospheric place was the value because the excellent service and food you would assume more. We paid 131,000 dong for a beer, a large water and two large main meals.

“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Down the windy street at back of hill in central dalat. Find it! Just near Dalat Easy Rider office. Great food with some clever twists and quirky options many of which have been developed with a definite artist eye plus the owner painting an incredible artwork at your table was a unique experience.
