Ducked into V Cafe to grab an early dinner and get out of the rain. The food quality was excellent, service attentive, and it was very pleasant sitting on the deck watching the world go by. Ann easy walk from the lake - well worth the effort.

Good food. Tasty and quick. The decor is local scenes and bands. Some wedding shots. Fun place with good desserts since VN doesn't really do "sweets". Had a good time.

Not only did V Cafe have turkey, they seated 7 of us immediately (despite no booking and the restaurant being very busy) we ordered wine which was almost immediately put on the table, I was then allowed in the kitchen to mull some wine...

The V Cafe is the home of LIVE MUSIC and great food in the central highlands of Vietnam.The story...Opened in 2002 by long-term Vietnam resident, Dr. Michael Sterling, the V Cafe carries on the tradition of good food and good value, and is now adding a "taste of the blues," as Curtis King and friends light up the V Cafe with their live blues and acoustic music.The menu... A great mix of Western favorites (including some of the best Mexican and tastiest pizzas in Vietnam), a smattering of Asian dishes, including a few Vietnamese all-time favorites (pho, spring rolls, etc.) Vegetarian? You'll enjoy a full selection of Vegetarian dishes, including some great curries. Good selection of local and imported beers and wines. (No MSG added to our food.)We've added a great breakfast menu, and are opening up early for travelers wanting to get an early start before heading out to see Dalat.Nightly live music - acoustic, rock 'n' roll, blues, folk, country, international.Free WIFI.Delivery within Dalat!Smoking section outdoors.
