Picked this little gem form the good reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. We had a balcony table and everything from the menu, the food, the service and the atmosphere was first class. If you are in Hue and you like good food you must check this place out.

This restaurant was well over hyped. Given the number of outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor we were expecting something really special for our one night in Hue. It was nice, but not worthy of number one. The duck was over cooked and drowned in bland cream sauce. Portions were tiny and I am not sure that potato wedges have ever been... More

Went to this restaurant for our last meal in hue and it was by far the best experience. Staff were attentive and menu was a mix of french/western and Vietnamese and it all sounded lovely. I almost felt embarrassed paying the bill When you realise what you get for your money. This is a must place to visit if you... More

We went here for lunch because of the fabulous reviews I'd read and were not disappointed at all. The kids each had the spring rolls which were delicious they informed me, my husband had some fried rice and I had the salmon with mango salsa (cooked to perfection with crispy skin). Would recommend coming here as it's close to the... More

Went here on our last night in Hue after seeing reviews on Trip Advisor and had a fantastic meal. The restaurant is in a really cute old French-era building tucked down a backstreet in the ancient part of town, and it has a French & Vietnamese menu befitting its location. After a couple of weeks solidly locked on local cuisine,... More

After a long hot visit to Hue's citadel we had a set menu in this lovely restaurant. The food was very tasty and well presented (and explained). A/C would have been nice and also the wine selection was limited but well worth a visit and seems to be a far better option than the downtown original.
