My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. This was our one night in Hue and we were especially interested in sampling some of the specialties of the region. We loved the banh khoai, which they modified to suit my dietary needs, and the rest of the meal was also very good. The service was good, the prices reasonable,... More

We had dinner at the patio, which was very nicely lit and you can do people watching on the street. Very good food an reasonable prices.

Good but not great food. Friendly attentive staff. We ordered Vietnamese food which was fine and flavoursome.

After great foodie experiences in Hanoi, I was looking forward to our stay in Hue, with its history of great culinary arts for the Royals. Ended up here because it was recommended by our hotel and its proximity- only a 10 to 15 min walk. The restaurant was packed so we sat outside, which was a better choice because of... More

We tried the Hue speciality dishes which tasted great and also very good and value for money. Service was excellent from friendly, helpful staff and the atmosphere of this little restaurant was spot on. Recommended.

A very dependable choice, especially if you're looking for a wide choice of foods. My wife and I stuck to the Vietnamese food, which ranged from good to great, if not spectacular. It's a proper restaurant, which justifies the slightly higher prices. Had a look at the "Western" food from other tables and it looked fine, apart from the pizzas.

We ordered two dishes as described on the menu - spaghetti with cream and cheese, and noodles with chicken. And that's literally what we got. Bland. Lumps of packet cheese were in the spaghetti that was drowning in cream. The chicken was dry and the noodles were flavourless. The bottled Perrier water was the highlight of the meal. There seemed...

My opinion on this place is based in a comparison to all similar places we visited during our three week journey in Vietnam. Cosy restaurant nicely decorated, attentive service but regular cooking compared to other French restaurants in the country. They have several menus to choose, as well as a superb offer of wines. It seems to be always fully... More

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
