Recommended by a lot of good eating guides but very average

As it was recommended by a lot of guides.... I ventured there... realised that pizza and pasta were on the menu and therefore not an only vietnamese restaurant. Service was efficient but not friendly and food very average... Lots of tourists eating pizza and pasta... not really interested in... read more

Me and my girlfriend had the vietnamese menu which consists of 5 different dishes. First up was two starter dishes; soup and rice pancakes with prawns which was mediocre. Nothing too bad, but definitely not tasty. After that we had spring rolls, which I had been looking forward to after the first two bland dishes. They brought us the smallest... More

The restaurant has an extensive menu, we ate Vietnamese dishes, which were very good. As the restaurant inside was hot, decided to eat at one of the restaurant's outside tables in the side lane. The lane is crowded with motorbikes and people entering/leaving the hotel. Overall, we enjoyed the food and the service.

A very busy restaurant and it's easy to see why. Very reasonably priced and delicious food- one of the best meals we ate in Hue. We ate outside at the side of the restaurant which felt slightly like a car park but the food made it worthwhile. We ate Vietnamese dishes...the pizzas didn't look as good though. It's here where...

This restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide and a few friend and we were very excited to go there, but we were all very disappointed since the place was crowded with tourists, the service was slow, it was extremely hot inside even though a little air conditioner was on it was not enough since the doors are...

This crowded and busy restaurant was ok, good selection of food on menu, like lots of places in Vietnam almost too much choice, but food & service was good.

Because of the quality and variety of food we made this our restaurant of choice in Hue. The grilled squid was superb, good coffee for my wife and icy cold beer for me. Owner, Ha, is a wonderful hostess and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you La Carambole.

This restaurant gets incredibly busy, so go early or book. Food is tasty, albeit slightly small portion sizes. The decoration inside is a little tacky though, and the advertising signs inside cheapen the feel of the place.
