My spouse and I shared a VN family style meal with hot pot fish, vegies, and rice. It was tasty and satisfying. Our friends had a pasta entree and a steak. We all enjoyed our food. Charming little restaurant in what looks to be a tourist friendly street in Hue. We enjoyed ourselves. Menu available in English, yet the our... More

We have dinner yesterday here. It's a nice place with friendly staff. We ordered some Vietnamese and Hue dishes like fried schrimps and grilled squid. It was everything quite good and tasty. We finished with a home made mango cake. I would repeat.

This was the culinary highlight of three weeks in Vietnam where the food is nothing short of excellent by the way! In this establishment the service is good, the decor is reasonable but both the food and price is exceptional. This place is a must (I recommend the steak with forestiere sauce)

We are here when we stayed in Hue for one night and it was very disappointing. We had enjoyed great food in Vietnam but La Carambole was very ordinary and we both had to send our grilled mackerel back because it was not cooked properly.

We have been in this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Hue. We experienced a very good overall dinner: the food was very flavoury where necessary and delicate where not. The service was very kind and they gave us also some suggestion and information about Vietnamese cooking tips and recipes. We're pretty exigent but we were satisfied from this... More

We called in to this restaurant one afternoon on our way back from the Imperial City. We had a light, late lunch and loved it so much that we returned for dinner that evening. We chose Vietnamese dishes and they were all delicious. I particularly loved the banana blossom salad and the rice flour pancakes filled with crab and pork... More

Again, tripadvisor was the deciding factor for this one and they did good. It was quite busy when we arrived but filled up even more a sweater and so took it as a good sign. The food was delicious snd I had never seen so much avocado in a salad! My boyfriend had noodle soup and said it was amazing.... More
