Description: Situated above the historic home of many famous journalists and writers, on the third floor of the "Press-Club" building, you can find one of the most spectacular French restaurants and its trendy lounge, a real "must go” destination in the heart of the old district of Hanoi. Open all day to anyone and overlooking the famous Metropole Hotel, eating and drinking are taken to an exciting new level. Here, in the splendid surroundings of old colonial flair, you can experience at “La Table du Chef", a unique 2 Michelin-star menu from Alain Dutournier (Paris) or enjoy at "La Plume Lounge” a choice of traditional Vietnamese dishes and the best cocktails in town from our world championship finalist mixologist, Mr Pham Tien Tiep.

Just across the road from the Sofitel Metropole this is a fabulous club for food & drinks. Happy hour from 5pm-7pm inside or on the roof top bar.
Food specials & range from pizza to 3 course meals. French wine, excellent cocktails or beer. The staff were fantastic. Cecilia from France, Vu, Tru, Luong & Dinh were the staff we met & they treated us so well that we returned 3 times during our stay for either lunch or dinner.

The quality of food was fantastic. We had a private room so was really great for discussion. There was no pressure to push us out until 4pm after lunch. I didn't pay for the food so cost was not a factor for me.

first night in Hanoi and we walked from the hotel to this French colonial restaurant. Very relaxed indeed, made to feel very welcome. Food was good, prawns and tart, king prawn starters, main of lamb, sea food curry, few glasses of wine, good martini, Hanoi beers x2 and a bill of 3,000,000 dong....omg! $140.... getting better.... £82.

Really nice, would I go back, yes, if I wanted to dress for dinner and have a very relaxing, none Indonesian meal.
