I go to La Carambole each time I'm in Hue and my mother and I love this restaurant. They have a huge menu with great European or Vietnamese dishes and there's always something for everyone. I love their simple avocado salad and their smoothies. Ask for the smoothies slightly less sweet then they'd normally make them. The decor is lovely... More

Booked restaurant on our first night in Hue. Welcoming, clean and efficient service. Food was good but not that memorable. We had a table outside which made for a lovely evening as we watched the world go by.

We enjoyed our several course meal of traditional Hue dishes, from soup through appetizer, main course and desert, I'm not sure the chocolate cake is Vietnamese, but suspect a French influence - it was delicious. Service was excellent, ambiance was pleasant. If we were staying longer in Hue, we'd come back.

Only the one visit for lunch so 5 might be high. Definitely 4.5. Avocado salad was heaven fresh with tomato and lettuce and served with a fresh crunchy Baguette. Was enough on its own but been me I had also ordered a pizza. Bit smaller than most(luckily) it was a good price and tasty. Beer was nice and cold too.... More

When you start miss your home style food (Im from Finland) in your travel in Hue, then you should visit here! They have two restaurants in city... Other one in Pham ngu Lao street(more busy area) and other one near citadel(more quiet location). Clean and hassle free place :)
