A popular and thus busy restaurant with OK food and service. It can be hot so make sure you're near a fan if it's that time of day.

The restaurant offers outstanding gourmet menus. Very professional, attentive staff. Also for very exigent customers, as we are, the restaurant offered excellent and original french dishes.

After reading the reviews here we decided to try it out. For the price it cost the food was very average. I would have rather paid a fraction of the amount and ate in a street kitchen where the food would have tasted better.

La Carambole has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The menu is extensive with Western and Vietnamese choice, but why eat Western while in Vietnam? The Cite Imperial menu has a nice variety, is delicious and true value for money. Dishes come straight from the kitchen and are served hot as they should. The desserts we changed to pancakes with banana... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this popular French/Vietnamese restaurant. We have purposely looked for restaurants serving Vietnamese food and had some lovely specialities which were tasty and enjoyable - try the rice flour, shrimp dish wrapped in banana skins - they are delicious, as are the spring rolls and crispy pancakes. We rounded off with a French crepe and ice cream - not... More

We were only in Hue for 2 nights and went to this resturant both times. The staff were lovely and the food was excellent. We had Asian food the first night and steak & chips the second night. Both really reasonably priced. We also had Vietnamese wine which was very good and much cheaper than the imported stuff. Sat outside... More

It's set back,but as you approach you realise why it's so full of customers. It's very reasonably priced ,has a vast selection of good food on offer ( and... More

This restaurant is obviously geared to tour groups as the food is quite bland. We ordered one western and one Asian menu complete. I had to use salt, pepper and chill sauce on foods from both menus to get some flavour and I am not a fan of hot food. My 'quiche' was a very thick crust pizza with a... More
