Don’s A Chef’s Bistro

Lonely Planet review

This multilevel lakeside spot is definitely worth the journey north to Tay Ho. It’s really three restaurants in one with an innovative bistro (try the sashimi or crab cakes), an oyster bar, and excellent wood-fired pizzas. Check the website for what’s happening with the live music schedule. From Xuan Dieu, turn left along the lake’s edge and look for the ‘Oyster Bar’ neon sign. Don’s is also a good spot to hire bicycles to negotiate the 13km-long lakeside pathway around Tay Ho. You could combine it with one of Don’s legendary weekend brunches (11am to 5pm).
