This is quite expensive but a nice view by the lake. Watch the Mosquitos outside. Perfectly fine for a drink.

Pricey by the lake - but that's ok. But the service was very slow and when I tried to pay the staff just sat around arguing with each other rather than taking my money. Talk about fawlty towers

Service was absolutely terrible, took over half an hour to place the order and then first dish arrived almost 45 minutes before any of the others. Waiters ignored us at every request to place and order, instead they were chatting to each other and playing games while customers waited and waited. Once food finally arrived it was cold and tasteless.... More

Its a shame that the food here is below average. They have a really good location with a great view but they let it down with the food and service. Also the whole place could do with some decking up to be honest. The view is very good if you get a seat along the water so what I suggest... More

I wish I had read the reviews here before stopping in on the way back to the hotel. You don't even need to go in for the view as it's the same or better all round the north end of the lake. Service was slow, I never got my bill so when I walked up to pay they didn't speak... More

We went in and got a table because it was right by the lake but that was the only positive. Didn't feel clean, staff were ambivalent and a burger and fries was the worst I've ever had. Enough said.

I was working one week in Hanoi and the last day we decided to go out and dining in this restaurant, that is in the mid of the city very near of the historic center. The restaurant is very well located near the shore of the Hoan Kiem Lake with nice views even during the night. The food and the... More

We had previously had coffee and ice cream here during the day and loved the views and atmosphere. We returned to walk around the lake in the evening and weren't disappointed. It is beautiful. We had dinner here and weren't disappointed. They make great pizzas and their ice cream sundaes are delicious. Followed by a Caffe Latte. At night the... More

Ive lived in Hanoi for 4 years and can say with confidence, and in just my opinion, that this Cafe simply doesn't have its act together. This is the worst rating I've ever given an establishment - period! Whilst the views over the lake are great- that's where it stops. What a pity! The food is lack luster; the service... More

After walking around the old quarter and trying to find a cafe that served milkshakes and coffee we came across this little gem near the Hoan Kiem Lake. We were tired and thirsty and very happy to sit inside this comfortable cafe with its pleasant view. (Smoking was permitted outside the cafe.) My strawberry milkshake and cappuccino were both delicious... More
