Since my first visit to Hue in May 2010, I have been coming back to La Carambole many times, alone or with my family. Nice place and the outdoor seating is rare in Hue. Friendly staff. Good French/medi flavors. Had many lunches on the generous baguetes with ham & cheese, and even nicer: with salmon. Kids were very happy with... More

Advised to go by some local friends but it is always crowded, reason why we recommend previous booking. Even though the restaurant was very busy, the staff were very friendly and pleasant and the food was excellent. They have some Western/Vietnamese dishes but you should go for the local stuff. By the way, try to get the tables on the... More

We really enjoyed our meal in The Carambole Restaurant. The restaurant was busy but the staff were very attentive & pleasant. However, we would have enjoyed a little more time between courses. We visited a more expensive restaurant the following evening. The Carambole was much, much superior with regard to quality of food & service. We highly recommend the place.

We had an enjoyable evening meal here during a short stay in Hue. They do a mixture of Vietnamese and local dishes and we went for the local stuff which didn't disappoint. Selected it after a walk round the area in the afternoon and looking at the listings in Lonely Planet. Sat on the street front and watched the world... More

Located on the main restaurant street of central Hue, La Carambole is a pleasantly lively restaurant offering a good range of food styles. We had an enjoyable meal, pleasantly served with the owner on hand to address any queries that diners might have. Overall, a nice place to dine where visitors can get a good value meal of a decent...

We ate here one night for dinner (6 of us). The staff were very friendly and sat us at the back near the kitchen which wasn't great given the amount of foot traffic with the staff serving people. It is in a great location on a main street surrounded by other great bars and restaurants. The food was very tasty... More

Great atmosphere here, restaurant was busy inside & out which is always a good sign. Don't have the steak, it wasn't tender & was very chewy. I asked for my steak medium & it was served almost blue. I should have known better not to order steak in Vietnam. Crepe flambee for desert was delicious, get vanilla ice cream on... More

La Carambole, lunch 20/10 Arrived in Hue at lunchtime and, on the advice of our guide, went straight to La Carambole to eat. We were looking for a simple lunch eg sandwich and a coffee. Although we were a little late for lunch, say, 1.30 pm, we surprised that we were the only diners. La Carambole offers quite a range... More
