Our experience was good. We had prompt service, and the food was good and well-priced. The menu covers a range of western and Asian foods, and you are almost certain to find something appealing. Centrally located, and worth a visit.
The soups are great, tasty lasagna , good meat and excellent nachos.

“Amazing food, worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Had such a lovely evening here. We came when there was live music playing- such a great band and a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. Nice lighting. The menu is slightly pricey but definitely worth it. The smoothies and milkshakes were divine, the complimentary appetiser was much appreciated and the staff were all very attentive. All the main courses are very detailed and taste amazing with generous portions, will definitely be visiting here again during our stay in Da Lat.

“Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

A friend and I spent a week at Dalat and noticed V Cafe as it was very near the place we where staying at. V Cafe is a small, intimate place, with live acoustic music. We like the ambiance too, as it is warm and can be romantic. They also have a few tables outside where you can here the live music as well. We had a pepperoni pizza and pasta and it was delicious! The owner, who is an American, is really nice and friendly. We had the night of our lives when we ate late dinner here and had the chance to jam with some of the musicians. The owner who happens to also own Escape bar (which is a 2 minute walk from the Cafe) also invited us to play there too! We almost skipped our night bus back to Ho Chi Minh because we were enjoying the music and the lovely crowd. Would love to visit there again!
