Another lovely ‘petite’ French bistrot tucked away from the buzzing streets of Saigon. Le Jardin offers yummy mama-style home-made French cuisine with good quality wine. The French accents give this lovely eatery a perfect touch and make you feel like you’re in France for a bit. The check will make you just as happy. Merci!

The succes of big brother Marcel Gourmet Burger was an inspiration to set up a little brother, Café Marcel. Breakfast and happy hour is when to go here for delicous brekkies and ‘petite assiettes’ or small plates during happy hour. The place is heaven for foodies and instagram-lovers – be sure to check out this new addition to Saigon’s long list of great eateries!
96 Nam Ky Khoi Nghia, D1
Ty Coz, yet another little French cuisine diamond in Saigon. Don’t be fooled by their no nonsense interior or the fact that their website seems outdated… The chef obviously rather spends his time in the kitchen. We are not complaining since the result is a menu full of delicious food. You can’t go wrong here if you are a fan of true French cuisine. No need to go to Paris after all!
178/4 Pasteur, Ben Nghe ward, D1
If you want to have a special night, reserve at the exquisite La Villa restaurant in District 2. The different set menus are simply mouthwatering, but if you go ‘à la carte’, you’re in for the same French deliciousness. And we won’t even begin about the wine or cheese… La Villa is a top-notch French restaurant and even though your wallet might protest for a bit, it’s worth it.
