Description: The Blue Butterfly is located inside the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, occupying a 300-year-old two-storey wooden house that promises a highly atmospheric and enjoyable environment. Its antique architecture should be the most attractive feature of this restaurant with all the furniture made of wood, traditional antiquities and Hanoi's scenes hanging along the wall...

Food, decor, ambiance, and service were all great! River, our server, was AMAZING!

If you're looking for a break from the Hanoi street food, but still want authentic Vietnamese food, this is the place to go.

During our 5 night stay in Hanoi, this was the best food that we had. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant, and we were given a complementary juice and spring roll to start, which were very tasty. Staff were friendly and very helpful with the menu.

This restaurant was a stand-out for taste and presentation. Situated right in the middle of the Old Quarter in Ma May, almost opposite the well-known New Day, it is great for people watching, if you sit in the front window seat. Cocktails are delicious and pretty - I had a watermelon martini, a really lovely drink. The food arrives in little baskets, and is generous and well presented - a pleasure to behold and to eat. The price may not be to everyone's liking, but considering everything that we ate and drank (3 beers, 2 cocktails and plenty of food), the equivalent $75 (Aus) wasn't bad.

Now - a spoiler, which prevented me from giving this restaurant a rating of 5. Over-attentive service! The lovely young man who served us (Pickle) stayed near our table the whole time, and was with us every 10 minutes, or so it seemed. This is not OK - it prevented us from really relaxing. The intention is probably good - to make sure we had everything we needed and that we knew all about what we were eating. But there was also a feeling that the extra attention had the aim of attracting a good rating here on TA. It took the shine slightly off what would have been a perfect meal.

We wanted to enjoy our last dinner at a nice restaurant and Blue Butterfly was a great way to end our trip in Hanoi. We all had the set meal except our vegetarian friend. I hope with time there is more of a selection for those that don't eat meat, but overall we liked our meal. River was a great host and super attentive. Thank you for a memorable night.
