Semi open-air cafe restaurant serving varied western cuisine. Stylish design, good value food. Popular venue with a pleasant outlook. Diva is an old standby that has since fallen out of the rotation.
Set inside (and out of!) a restored French colonial building, the restaurant itself is very ambient -- especially at night when the Xmas lights are twinkling.
The quality of the food has become increasingly inconsistent -- to the point that we were so disinterested in our dishes during our last visit that we left more than half the food on the plates and went home hungry.
That said, it is a great place to have drinks -- especially if you're in the mood for something other than the traditional dark, smoky, and congested bars on Ta Hien.
This garden cafe in a renovated, French-era house has been a long time favorite of many a Hanoian.
