Setting good, food average

This restaurant was at the drop off spot for our shuttle bus (taxi) from Pilgrimage Village in Hue. Lovely outdoor setting and live traditional music. After 10 days in Vietnam and some delicious meals, the food we ordered was average.

The Hue food here was very delicate and delicious. The service was excellent. Our waitress was professional, friendly, attentive and charming. The restaurant has a good wine list at reasonable prices. The 3 ladies who provide the music do a beautiful job of adding a bit of culture to the evening without dominating. We found this restaurant better than others... More

It was a very quiet night, only our table of 5 dining and a couple of people outside. 3 lovely ladies sang and played music for us the whole time we ate, it was just great. We enjoyed the authentic music while we enjoy a very good meal. would recommend to anyone.

We ate here as part of an organised overnight trip to Hue and all I can say is just don't go. The deal is that it is a set menu of small plates which is fine except that none of them tasted any good and I was disgusted with the hair I found in my food. Yes, I understand it's... More

Very surprised to read some of the negative reviews of this restaurant as found it to be the best one we visited whilst in Vietnam. It was very quiet with only a few people around. Food was excellent. Had a set menu with crab. There was far more food than stated on the menu. Fantastic meal, great service and peaceful... More

We had dinner at this restaurant on our previous visit to Hue and the memory has remained of a lovely evening. The gardens are beautiful and the atmosphere is calming and relaxed. We made a reservation for one of the outdoor tables set in its own little pagoda. No other diners close by so very private and intimate. I chose... More

This restaurant is just not worth visiting. It seemed full of large parties of tourists all eating the same set menu. The staff weren't enthusiastic and the room itself was very uninviting. The food was just on the right side of OK, but we ate better everywhere else in Vietnam, and in particular in the street cafes. Sorry!
