About
Cafe de l’Opera is quite possibly in the best location in our city, that’s if you enjoy your views with a dash of history and a slice of modernity all rolled into one. The cafe is located on the ground floor of the hotel on the corner of historic Dong Khoi Street and Lam Son Square, just metres across from Saigon’s iconic municipal theatre, better known as the Opera House. During the day, as temperatures soar and the heavens threaten to open, Cafe de l’Opera becomes a refuge for travellers and the like, just as it always has been since the hotel doors opened in the 50s. Over high-tea, things slow down, friends catch-up, business associates meet and lovers hold hands. By night, things become lively again with tapas, cocktails and wine to the sounds of jazz and the excited chatter of guests enjoying an extended Happy Hour as the city comes alive again.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During my short visit to Caravelle Saigon, I found myself captivated by the enchanting atmosphere of the Opera Caffe. The elegant décor and soothing music created a classy and sophisticated ambiance. The staff were incredibly attentive and always ready to engage in delightful discussions. Whether it was sharing travel stories or exploring cultural nuances, their genuine warmth and knowledge made the experience truly memorable. I highly recommend visiting this gem in Saigon for a tranquil and inclusive environment that fosters connections.
