Though quite hot inside (something to do with the seasons), it did not deter from the quality of service or food which was exceptional. Our young waitress, Lan, was very attentive and honest in her recommendation of dishes. Exceptional price and value, food was sensational, definitely a stand out in Hue.

We wanted French cuisine and out hotel recommended La Carambole. The food, atmosphere, service and architecture was amazing. The meals were also reasonably priced. Going to try and get there again before I leave Hue.

As a way of introduction, we are nit finicky and i am not used to write harsh reviews since i take my food seriously and we do due research prior to rocking up in a restaurant. During our first night in Hue, we decided to place safe and give the kids a break after many days of more adventurous, and... More

Came here for lunch after reading the reviews. In total there were about four patrons and two waitresses. The decor was nice but the food was bland and had nothing interesting to it. Tourist priced as well. After our meals our waitress asked how it was, my husband said it could've been better to which she reply we didn't have... More

Wanted to try this place out and I'm glad we did. We had the grilled chicken and lemongrass beef wrapped in banana leaves....... Awesome! gave this place 1 point less for service. It's not the usual service you expect from other places. The staff weren't rude just seemed interested.

We decided to dine here thinking it was le jardin de Carambole, however it's not (that said I'm yet to dine there myself). A few things: 1. Decent service 2. Tasteless unexciting faux French food 3. Outside seating is in the parking lot, full of impolite, honking, disgusting, rude and foul people who are walking in and out of the... More

Who would have thought tht you could find a restaurant of this caliber in Hue, Viet Nam. The resturant is small and intimate, staff is friendly and the meal was fantastic. They offer a good selection of wine, European and Vietnamese entrees, relaxing ambience. It was a great, most enjoyable meal after a long day of sightseeing.

The food in Vietnam was fantastic. We regularly were served inexpensive, excellent Asian meals and we enjoyed every one. There comes a time during a month long trip, however, that you want a little break from that cuisine and need a western meal, In Hue we found this restaurant and it fit the bill spectacularly. While they have Asian dishes,... More
