El Gaucho West Lake

Schools of massive crystal chandeliers brilliantly light up overhead as guests tuck into the one-floor open space of El Gaucho in Somerset West Point Hanoi.

While the restaurant’s opulent interior is a feast for the eyes, an abundance of premium naturally-raised beef sourced from Victoria, New South Wales, and individual farms in the US satisfy all peckish steak lovers. Paired with modern approaches on preparation, steak classics in this restaurant are interspersed with creative ingredients and complex additions. Additionally, El Gaucho also serves burger, chicken, pork, and fish specialties on request. 

Address: lot G2, ground floor, Somerset West Point, No.2 Tay Ho Street, West Lake District, Hanoi

La Villa French Restaurant

Owner - Chief Thierry has created a practically surreal French gastronomy hub in a calm street in Thao Dien Ward. Wind through flourishing tangle of trees, your eyes will stumble upon a white-hued, contemporary villa. The spacious interior takes on French art-deco, brimming with round tables, leather chairs, and bright curtains. In the softly lit space, guests can listen to light jazz music and marvel at a range of Victorian artwork. Notably, a sunlit pool in the outdoor garden will ease your fatigue before you indulge in delectable and meticulously-prepared dishes.

Meanwhile, for main courses, you can choose from a gorgeous display of roasted Canadian lobster and grilled shredded vegetables. Address: 14 Ngo Quang Huy Street, Thao Dien Ward, District 2, HCMC

Hoi An Sense Restaurant

On an exquisite rooftop in a busy residential area of District 1 sits Hoi An Sense restaurant. Like a time capsule to your travel, every corner in this warm yet pared-back restaurant evokes the old Saigon ambiance, dating back over 20 years. Formerly Hoi An restaurant, Hoi An Sense features a sophisticated architecture of 300-year-old Lim wooden materials, a colorful array of hanging lanterns, and a stunning fish pond. Be unexpectedly captivated by the ancientness of a Vietnamese wooden house and ingenuity of local craftsmen.

Nha Trang View Restaurant

The elegant coastal neighborhood of Nha Trang City is home to Nha Trang View restaurant, a world-class seafood and breakfast café restaurant.

Gut-busting seafood here is at its best just because the restaurant specializes in creative variations on the classics. To be found there are dozens of brilliantly-executed dishes from slipper lobster, black tiger prawns, king crabs, snails, and cockles. Few things can be more appealing that savor a sumptuous meal with lots of fresh air and admire sunrise or sunset by the breath-taking beach sceneries.
