They have a nice balcony with view on the church. However, staff spoke a little bit English and other reviews stated they didn't understand you so be careful with your order. We orderd a juice but received a tea. Didn't care to argue but be aware.

Great place for a drink overlooking the square in front of the Catholic Cathedral. We had a snack lunch which was good but not outstanding.

One of the worst meals I've had in a restaurant ever. I wish I had read reviews before coming. Looks beautiful but the food is vile. I don't normally post negative reviews but I don't want others wasting money or time here.

Restaurant is located on the second floor nice view on the balcony. Drinks were fairly priced but tasted really weird. If you are not able to mix basic margarita please do not have it on the menu. Two points comes from service and view

The location is great. Terrasse on the 3rd floor. View on the cathedral. BUT my noodles were cold, instead of my beer.

Food was awful. Only good thing is the location. The attitude was unacceptable and there was no service whatsoever. The waiter on FB and oblivious. Unpleasant all round.

Ha Noi just heaves with activity night and day. It's so exciting, like moving thru a pulsating cacophony of life. At some point in the day though, it tires you out and that's when we come to Marilyn's Cafe. Upstairs is a small balcony overlooking the church and the square in front of it. Here you can lay back and... More

The staff try to hassle you into this place just adjacent to the catherdral. Don't go in. Tables dirty, flies everywhere and incapable of taking an order and providing food you might want to eat.

Meals where all made vegetarian and portion sizes were perfect. Staff all very pleasant and accomodating. Great view of St Joseph's Cathedral and the sound of the bells in the background was amazing.
