Nice location and good food

We spent only one night in Hue e we found this place on trip. The restaurant is in a colonial villa (very nice and original). We had both Vietnamese food (noodles) and French food (beef). Price is reasonable. We paid 30euros.

We went here for our last dinner in Hue and it was great! We had 6 different dishes but our favorite is Hue style salad and king mackerel steak with tomato sauce. The beautiful piano performance, great food, lovely company and the romantic atmosphere with great ambience made our meal much more special. There was a sudden power outage but... More

The restaurant was so good we ate there 2 nights in a row The staff also organise a taxi when... More

I took my two foreign guests here for dinner. The atmosphere was nice, the waitstaff attentive and friendly, and the food was good and reasonably priced. A solid 4-star, but not yet a 5-star in my opinion.

Run by a French expatriate, this was as exotic as you get, on a quiet side street near the Citadel. An open terrace at the top level added that old colonial style, you can look at the gekos on the wall enjoying their pickings whilst enjoying some of the best food in Hue. I had the Bouef Bourguinon which was... More

A very pleasant dining experience, complete with classical pianist. The food is good.. but standard. Don't expect to be blown away by creative flavour combinations. Overall, it's a very nice place for dinner with a great atmosphere and friendly service.

The restaurant is nice, situated in a old style house, with a nice terrace. Food is good, a mix of Vietnamien and French food. Not easy to find.
