A beautiful French colonial building and the dinning room is magnificent. The food is good but a bit overpriced and the menu options are a bit limited. I had the duck which was excellent and my dinning partner the salmon which was overdone although the raspberry sauce was very good and went well with the salmon. We shared a banana... More

Fine dining in a magnificent dining room overlooking the lake. We had dropped in the afternoon and were seated at a table right by the French window overlooking the grounds and lake. The table was beautifully set with a lovely modern flower arrangement and a candelabra. The close proximity to the French windows meant that dripping was created sculptures during... More

Had a lunch at this restaurant. Very dissappointing. The food, chicken and steak, was overcooked. This is saying something as we tend to like food well-done. The food was not worth the price. The wine list was quite good for Vietnam but very expensive.

Le Rabelais is a French restaurant in Dalat Palace Hotel. It has exquisitely beautiful ambience, and you have to pay a lot to eat here. On Saturday, there was a VIP function, so the place was fully booked. On a rainy Sunday, we were the only two guests eating here. I was bitten by a mosquito, and a bat flew... More

We have visited Le Rabelais many times, but, unfortunately, it was closed for a private function the last time we tried to dine there. This time, however, the memories were still there in the present with good service and excellent presentation of delicious food. They suggested their Menu Plaisir (Pleasure Menu) which started with a delicate amuse bouche followed by... More

Located on the ground floor of the Da Lat Palace Hotel this restaurant on a small hill overlooks the lake. The view is quite stunning day or night. The hotel looks quite impressive from the outside but is even grander when you step indoors.

The restaurant is located inside the Da Lat Palace hotel which is very easy to find. It was beautifully decorated with a rococo-esque style, truly a thrilling experience for anyone to have considering this hotel was built from long time ago. We only visited this place for a drink but would be definitely back again soon. Very nice and fancy... More
