Sometimes it seems that all Hanoi's best eateries are either holes-in-the-wall or exclusive club-type places that charge a fortune, but fortunately there are some good choices in between, of which this welcoming bistro is one. It's right in the heart of the Old Quarter and has the feel of an authentic bistro right down to the black-and white tiled floor and brass-rimmed bar. The short and simple menu features French dishes like beef bourguinon and chicken escalope, but don't bother with the pizza, which is ordered in from down the road. Service is prompt and with a smile.
