Restaurant was close to the hotel we stayed (Chau Long). The food was good and also price wise very good. The menu has a lot to choose from. Atmosphere in the restaurant was very good too and personnel nice and friendly.

The service was poor and for a restaurant that almost exclusively caters to tourists, their level of English was very poor. The menu also seems to be the exact same as the Michell cafe close by, just a bit more expensive.

We had breakfast at this place. The set english breakfast was very disappointing: only one tiny piece of bacon with more fat than meat, and the fried egg was more deep-fried. Bad value for the money. Coffee was so-so. Would not recommend, Sapa has better...More
