My wife and I have lived in hanoi for about a year and really enjoy the wide variety of great restaurants.

Nice place, great rooftop in a quiet corner in the bustling city. Good for romantic dinner or hang out with friends for good French food. Owner came to say hello and check if everything okay. Food was good value for money, especially the menu sets. fabulous steak and duck breast, good wine and espresso as well. Highly recommended!

I chose this restaurant on the special occasion of my partner. We enjoyed so much the Tuna Pizza, Beef Steak with a very nice french bottle of red wine. Staff of this restaurant were really well-trained, we are impressed. We definitely recommend this one.

Hi Jonathan, merci for you appreciation about our cuisine, but to be honest your compliments are for my second restaurant on the first floor the Loft Stop café French and Vietnamese Brasserie where you went , Millenium Café des Arts at the second floor is rather a French gastronomic restaurant where the cuisine is simply more elaborated, using products and...

I love a dish you assemble at the table. At its root this is a fish dish but once you combine all the ingredients in a rice paper wrap and dip it in a special Vietnamese sauce you have a melody of surprising flavors to slowly dance with as you eat your way from wrap to wrap. You can share... More

The food you get here would be much more expensive in the West, so it is a reasonably priced French restaurant in the grand scheme of things. However it is much more expensive than most Hanoi places. We knew this going in so this isn't a negative, just something to be aware of. What was disappointing was that they did... More

Decor here was nice, the cafe itself looked pretty posh yet at the same time quaint. While there were some special dishes that stoof out, some of the food here however was so-so.
