As most restaurants of this range in HCMC, la Villa is more or less successful at proposing fine dining. It disappoints, however, by its old fashioned approach of french cuisine, lacking diversity and innovation.

Good overall experience - you see that they put efforts in quality and service A bit outdated though - deco is a bit cheap, recipes are not very innovative

Recommended to us by an expat, we were not disappointed. Beautiful building, charming dining room, and food to match. Had the La Villa menu, more than enough for me. Had the sea bass, but should have had the duck. The apple flan dessert was exceptional.
