Making great use of an iconic location, Saigon’s old “Manufacture d’Opium” (1881), The Refinery was built, designed and decorated locally with custom made furniture and lighting in the greatest Paris bistro tradition.
A French Brasserie and Wine Bar tucked away in a secluded courtyard, The Refinery offers a large covered outdoor terrace with comfy armchairs to relax the day away as well as a beautiful interior with many original architectural features. While the bistro serves excellent food – do not leave without sampling the various platters – the wine selection is superb with 17 Old and New World wines on offer by the glass. Events around wine and food pairing are organised regularly.

What Clients Say
"Happy hour for food and drinks? Yes please. Amazing custom made cocktails. I asked for a random mix that they didn't have on the menu and the bartender happily made my concoctions. It was insanely good. Cheese and meat platter was delicious, with free flow bread. Excellent quality. Fantastic staff. Lovely outdoor courtyard. Definitely visit if you're in Saigon."

"What a delightful and relaxing restaurant experience. Down a little alley and while some of the buildings surrounding this little nook are undergoing restoration this restaurant sits there patiently waiting for you to drop in. French old world decor, good friendly service and good food. We liked it so much we went back three times (...). Great atmosphere."
"We had the nicest meal of our trip underneath the canopy of the Refinery. Gorgeous French bistrot food, including a superb steak tartare. Excellent wine list too. For the quality of the offering, the price was more than fair."
"This is one of my favourites, old style bistro with great relaxed atmosphere either inside or out on the terrace. Hidden in a courtyard off Hai Ba Trung ideal location to get away from the city for relaxing drinks or meals. Excellent service from friendly staff and great food to match"
"I invited a group of business partners and I must tell that the place, the food and the service was super good. A place to go back. Price is very good too for what you get."
