While wandering out on our first day in HCM we looked down an alley and saw Cocotte and what a find it was, a lovely French restaurant with delightful staff. It became our go to place for a beer or a wine outside their busy lunch and dinner times and it is very popular indeed. We had lunch there on one occasion and it was lovely but the rest of the time was sampling the very well priced wines while enjoying the street life of the fascinating alley. A particular thank to two staff members AT and Gam who were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

Hidden down an alleyway, this restaurant had a nice ambience. I had the duck breast which was tender and appropriately pink. I even finished with an islands flotante which I haven't been able to get in France for years. Good service and real French food.

Dear leanneb310,
Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our restaurant and food. How ever I m surprised you mentioned about asparagus, as we do not have some. May be you meant the leak with vinaigrette and egg crumbs. I love them too :) nearly as much as the chocolate fondant ;)
We will be definitely happy to see you soon again

This place is kind of in an alley, but don't let that deter you. There are tons of great restaurants in Ho Chi Minh City, and in this area, and this is one of them. I got the veal stew and it was really good, really flavorful, and a great deal for the price. I also had the blueberry fizzy tea. Definitely worth the visit and try! Staff was really nice and service was pretty fast.

Dear thevidor,
Glad that you think, despite the large offer in HCMC, we stand in the great ones! The veal stew is one of our best sellers along with the magret de canard.
Happy that the food, as well as our special drinks, and our service satisfied you. Hopefully you will have an other visit soon.
Until then take care
