We were staying at Saigon Morrin Hotel on Le Loi so this restaurant is within walking distance. The charming staff greeted us well. We had the pancakes then duck with lemon grass and chicken with lime leaves and rice. All the dishes were tastefully presented and delicious. We could order wine by the glass.

We had heard another couple mention this restaurant and saw it in an old Planet. Average meal , chicken was nice, there are many restaurants here, will try a different one tonight! Would not particularly recommend.

One can choose a menu with a variety of Vietnamese items or order a la carte. Spicy, but not too spicy, and one can add more spice. We choose a menu which provided a tasting of several different items, including squid, papaya salad, chicken, rice. The wine list by the glass suite.

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...
