Indoor seating area reeked of cigarette smell and the air was very still. Requested for a change to outdoor seats, at 12pm the sun was scorching but thankfully there was a shelter and a fan near us. Bread basket had cold and stale bread. Would only recommend the salmon with dill sauce. Duck confit is passable at best. Duck breast... More

Le Jardin serves good French bistro food in HCMC. We enjoyed pleasant house wine and reasonable bistro food. The carpaccio was nicely served and very tasty. The moules could have had more garlic to our tastes. All in all a nice break from constant Vietnamese cuisine.

We came here for a dinner on a rainy evening with business associates. It was a lovely evening well spent: Even my business associates were impressed - they are foodies from Hong Kong, well traveled and sophisticated, yet they were impressed with the food + the service + the quality + the pricing here! I presonally love their Duck Leg... More

The food was good, the restaurant's setting is a nice garden. The wine list is a hard treat to find in Vietnam.

If you want to have a nice dinner where you can sit under the trees and enjoy french cuisine, this is the place. It's a very cozy and relax ambiance. The food is nice and the wine is affordable and people are friendly! Make sure you book beforehand though, if you want to sit outdoor. It tends to get busy... More

This is arguably the best value for money french restaurant in HCMC. We visited after reading all the positive reviews and were happy we made the right choice. However, do note that this restaurant is cash terms only.

I love moules marinières and frozen mussels are the worst. You need fresh mussels for that one. The sauce wasn't that good, maybe because there wasn't enought shallots or wine. The staff was also taking forever to bring our drinks...

Would totally recommend to all travelers to Ho Chi Minh. Amazing experience, don't want to give away, so romantic and a little mystery. It's not about the food but about the experience . We LOVED it

This is the 2nd time that I had French food in hcmc. As recommended by TripAdvisor we went there and we were not disappointed. The tuna steak is really nice with peppercorn and it is not spicy. Semi raw in the bottom but cook perfectly on top. The mashed potato with the red mullet is nice. But the red mullet... More

Le Jardin is an authentic French restaurant located in the grounds of a French School in HCMC, where you can dine either inside, or outside in the garden. The service is very good and the offerings are authentic and eclectic. Naturally the wine selection, either by the glass or bottle, is French and very drinkable.. If the weather is suitable,...
