Our guide dropped us here for lunch part way through a day tour of Hue, as the restaurant is within walking distance of the Citadel. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite it being rather more expensive than we were used to paying in Vietnam. However, the extra cost was worth it, as the food was superb, the service faultless and we... More

Despite the hype this restaurant is over priced. Enjoyed food at La Carambole Restaurant on other side of river just as much. Go once to enjoy the experience. Beautiful old building and waiters hover over you and attend to all your needs.

We were served two delicious shrimp dinners with a beautifully arranged plate of tasty vegetables and fried spring rolls. Plates were enhanced with vegetables carved into flowers.

Definitely the best restaurant in Hue. Does not deserve the No.2 spot. Ambiance, decor and warmth took our group back to a colonial era. Price for a 4 course western meal excluding wine came to €21. Admittedly higher than most restaurants in Vietnam, Les Jardins has no equal when considering the amazing dining experience. Service is professional, yet friendly.

As the title goes, this restaurant should be the Number 1 in Hue. Excellent service, good menu with fantastic prices, in a beautiful atmosphere. Set menus also excellent choice which can be changed.

Set in the old city conveniently near the Citadel, hence great for a lunch break, is this marvelously preserved period house. The staff are polite and wonderful. The food is fabulous. the wall décor is interesting. Have at least one meal here.

Went here after a visit to the citadel. It was our only rainy day on our trip and we arrived a bit wet. No problem they had a real fireplace! The only one I saw on our trip and we were toasty warm in no time. My son chose the duck with orange and practically inhaled it. Not a lot... More
