Title says it all really. The food is very dull and western but the evening antics are great fun. The staff are friendly. We did end up with the drinks for the couple next to us... but that was soon sorted out. Its a bit like Hue really, living on former glory.

Went here for food and drinks. Very quiet when we first got here (around 7.30) but picked up later. Good beer. Food was tasty and would recommend the Vietnamese spring rolls. Great place for people watching. Service was not the best. Not a bad place but there are better places further up the road.

Good place to relax and drink beer in the evening. Got a good pool table inside also, and if your nice they'll let you choose your own music! The staff are all nice and are happy to bring you beers all day long... Got sport playing sometimes on the projector, and relax and watch the sights of Hue go by.... More

The staff here were lovely and always up for a game of pool with backpackers. I really enjoyed hanging out here as the prices were decent and the company was good too. Some things to be wary of which goes not just for here but for all of Vietnam: Learning very basic vietnamese. 'one beer please' and 'thank you' will... More

Why not bar is disgusting. The inside literally smelled like a gross bathroom, it was unbearable to spend time in there playing pool. I would never order food from a place that smelled so vile.

The restaurant has an extensive menu at reasonable prices. The staff were friendly when called upon, but a little slow in fulfilling requests. You can create your own custom ice cream sundaes which were particularly nice for the price. Overall a decent experience, not the best restaurant around, but you won't leave disappointed if you do visit.

Western and local food is available - too many choices - so everyone can be happy. Food was good and service is what you expect in Vietnam. (I think some people are used to instant arrival of food and that just doesn't happen in Vietnam.) Reasonable prices.

Arrived in Hue late some of our party looking for a meal and others for a snack. Why Not had every choice we could think of, beer, wine and other drinks all at a reasonable price.
