We came here for dinner when it was a bit drizzly.. The French food however is average and quite highly priced compared to other restaurants in the surrounding area.

You could be forgiven to thinking you were eating in Tuscany! We had a peaceful lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Try the set menu.

The food here was very diverse in textures and flavors and extremely well presented. The service was very attentive and friendly. Even our picky eaters enjoyed trying new foods. This was one of the best meals we had in Vietnam.

This restaurant offers a very good alternative to vietnamese cuisine alone. The young chef (I had a chance to meet with her) offers both local vietnamese food as well as pizza and pasta. We were travelling since a week with the kids and this was very welocme by them! We took a few local specialties that were premium quality and... More

One thing set this restaurant apart from others was that the maitre d' and his wife were present and very attentive. All the staff were so polite and helpful, which I appreciate is their job, but they made a good meal, excellent. The food was some of the best we have eaten in Vietnam and the detail of the vegetable... More

We had lunch on the terrace of this French colonial style villa next to the Imperial City in Hué. The outstanding dishes were the grilled chicken, a spicy fusion dish, and the rich passion fruit ice cream. The green mango salad was cool and seasonal on a stifling day. Service was speedy, cheerful and efficient.

We had a good meal. Crispy calamari, Onion soup, green mango salad, morning glory, caramelized shrimp. Each was good and nothing was outstanding. Service was excellent, although the server asked several times if we were enjoying the service - made me wonder why, since we were obviously happy. Prices were fine, and portions were ample. Definitely worth a visit.

Our Hue tour guide recommended that we go to Les Jardins. Very much a tourist location, but don't let that put you off. The restaurant is located in a beautiful old Indochine style home conveniently located near the Imperial Palace. The food was some of the very best we had in Vietnam. Although we didn't try any of the non-Vietnamese... More

Delicious. Great atmosphere and service. We arrived without reservation but were swiftly seated. I had Vietnamese (green mango salad with squid) and hubby had French (beef bourguignon with mashed potatoes) and both were delicious! Desserts good too and everything was very reasonably priced. It's just by the citadel - no more than 50,000 dong by taxi from the South Bank... More
