About
Cafe de l’Opera is quite possibly in the best location in our city, that’s if you enjoy your views with a dash of history and a slice of modernity all rolled into one. The cafe is located on the ground floor of the hotel on the corner of historic Dong Khoi Street and Lam Son Square, just metres across from Saigon’s iconic municipal theatre, better known as the Opera House. During the day, as temperatures soar and the heavens threaten to open, Cafe de l’Opera becomes a refuge for travellers and the like, just as it always has been since the hotel doors opened in the 50s. Over high-tea, things slow down, friends catch-up, business associates meet and lovers hold hands. By night, things become lively again with tapas, cocktails and wine to the sounds of jazz and the excited chatter of guests enjoying an extended Happy Hour as the city comes alive again.

The cafe is located in a very prime location, it covers a central area with impressive views. Coming here to drink morning coffee, eat a bowl of pho, read a newspaper and look at the street is something worth experiencing. They also have attentive friendly service. What a perfect way to start my day!

During my short visit to Caravelle Saigon, I found myself captivated by the enchanting atmosphere of the Opera Caffe. The elegant décor and soothing music created a classy and sophisticated ambiance. The staff were incredibly attentive and always ready to engage in delightful discussions. Whether it was sharing travel stories or exploring cultural nuances, their genuine warmth and knowledge made the experience truly memorable. I highly recommend visiting this gem in Saigon for a tranquil and inclusive environment that fosters connections.

Great food and drinks here! I got the burger two days in a row because it was so delicious. They also have a very delicious dipping sauce that comes on the side - I put it on both the burger and fries. It is also very pleasant to sit here, as there are large windows looking out to the street, and calming music playing in the background. Lovely experience.

Fabulous hotel lounge cafe. Great view of the Opera House and the center of HCMC. Ordered special ice coffee with lemongrass and orange and a marvelous desert of banana ice cream and chocolate and banana cream rolls. Best ever! Service was impeccable!

Her were very enthusiastic and I'm very happiness with the enthusiasm and friendly of the staff here. Highly recommend the Love Passion Fruit tea, I absolutely will come back again.

I always enjoy spending time here at the cafe. The staff takes extra care to make sure your order is right and also speedy. Their gentle touch makes you feel as if you are the only person they are attending to. I would give 6 stars but five is all that is allowed.

This afternoon I just had a wonderful experience at the cafe at the Caravelle Saigon hotel. Hi tea here has Thai flavors, including Southeast Asian dishes mixed with a bit of Western Europe. Banana avocado smoothie is smooth and creamy. Of course, salmon hollandaise will always be my first choice when I come here, it is very fresh and fatty. Along with delicious food is the extremely dedicated service of the friendly staff here. Thank you Tram, Yen, Hien - 3 beautiful girls for giving me a table with a beautiful view as well as the attentive service.

Had a lovely high tea. Service was good. Very polite staff and the surroundings nice. Very different high tea to a traditional scone and sandwich afternoon tea. I shared a high tea with my husband. Different tastes and different vibe. With the high tea will come a tea and coffee. If you are sharing a high tea the other person will have to order a drink which will be added to the bill. Had a great time and would recommend in trying it. Reasonably priced too.

Have been to this place a few times and both the food and service have been phenomena! If you come in the evenings for dinner, there is someone playing live music too. The seats by the window allow you to have a spectacular view on Saigon’s city centre and the opera house.
