We were excited to go here because a friend from Saigon had highly recommended it. The restaurant is in an old colonial building, very well preserved and charming. We sat at one of the tables next to a window- but unfortunately that area of the...More

I really don't know how this place stays in business. The service staff was too enamored with their smartphones to pay attention to the room. Once they deigned approach, the attitude was "What? Couldn't you see I was busy?" The kitchen was out of hamburgers....More

La Fenetre Soleil is the only Indonesian restaurant in Saigon serving traditional Indonesian home cooking for lunch and dinner. Because we have a lot of international guests we also serve some international dishes and snacks. In the evening we turn La Fenetre Soleil into a live music club with Jazz, Soul, Funk, Blues and Reggae musicians playing live while you can enjoy our food and a drink.
