This place was recommended by my hotel as a good place to try. If you are searching through Sapa restaurant reviews confused by all the places with such mixed reviews, just realize you have to adjust your expectations. The food I tried in Sapa was...at best average by Hanoi standards.More

We visited this restaurant on recommendation of our hotel, It is at the top ten on tripadvisor. Service is good. Things got off to a bad start after my cocktail arrived and it really not how it should be. Then...the food. Really average by Vietnamese...standards. Did not even meet the quality of street food, which admittedly is fantastic in Vietnam. I would not recommend you visit unless you have feedback that the quality of the food has improved. It is quite pricey by local standards.More

Opening hours are not what they claim. Or at least not for the kitchen. Check if the kitchen is open before you go there. I wouldn't know about the quality of their food.More

First of all, we thank you for visiting our restaurant. But our restaurant has not reopened food after the covis-19 period, so everything is not ready. We only have drinks at this time and have clearly informed you. So your review may reconsider We would...More

If you have been travelling around for a while and feel like taking a break from the delicious Vietnamese food. This is a good place for those who appreciate French cuisine, nicely done. Note that the dish I was served wasn't the one I ordered..., nonetheless it was delicious.More

I been there for 3 months ago. I suddenly realized that I haven’t wrote comment for 1991 yet even though I & my friend really had a wonderful time. Thank Mr.Raphael a lot for those good recommendations for our first trip to Sapa about weather,...food, transportation, etc for our whole stay. Besides that, other staff were extreme friendly & helpful. We really appreciated all of you for first great experience. Other strengths are good location, clean room, nice view to the downtown & decoration. I liked way all of you did & I definitely will be back next time. I will also recommend to my friends. Please keep going & thank you so much.More

Ordered the seafood noodles. Incredibly delicious. I strongly recomend! Very nice staff and quiet little retreat in the heart of Sapa!

As someone who lives in Sapa, this restaurant is a gem for me! Probably the coziest in town too. As much as I love Vietnamese food, it's also nice to have some varieties and this restaurant did not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and...welcoming too!More

I like how this place is so welcoming to both locals and foreigners, making everyone at ease and comfortable. Appreciate that the waitress was upfront about the limited food choices due to the busy Tet season. The food and drinks were great nonetheless. I had...a very simple ham and cheese baguette, egg coffee and, because I wanted to stay away from the cold and foggy weather longer, I ordered, honey ginger drink. Overall, an experience that warmed both the stomach and the heart.More

Great coffee place/restaurant with a good atmosphere. I enjoyed a nice coconut tart and a good coffee. Can't say much about the food.
