Hue's tourist district has dozens of choices. La Carambole offers local food as well as European offerings for the gastronomically conservative. Travelling on my own it's sometimes tricky to try a range of dishes. That's where set menus are a welcome addition. I enjoyed trying the offerings on the set menu here. Let's be frank. At $15 for six small... More

In 9 days that we are in Vietnam it's first time that we eat so bad: We order 2 fish, both uneatable and The vietnamese soup as well. The only dish that we could eat was the vegetable mix. At The end of this "beautiful" dinner we saw a big rat walk 2 mt behind our table. Disgusting!!!

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at La Carambole on our last night in Hue if we had stayed longer we would have definitely gone back

The staff are very quick to pull you into the restaurant but then the service was a little hit & miss. The main part of the restaurant is very hot-we sat in the backroom which is airconditioned,but next to the toilets. The food was ok and portion sizes large.If you want a drink such as a fruit shake be prepared... More

Recommended this restaurant by our guide and went there for dinner. There are 2 tables on the pavement, tables outside down the side of the building, a main dining room and a smaller room out the back. As it was v busy we were offered a table on the pavement (decluned due to no of passing vehicles) and was given... More

La Carambole is in the heart of the backpacker area but, nevertheless, Pham Ngu Lao street is home to a range of restaurants, something to suit whatever your taste and/or pocketbook. This highly recommended restaurant has a calm and peaceful environment, especially if you choose to take a table outside. You'll find Vietnamese specialty dishes and continental fare. I was... More

This restaurante is quick easy and very good. Some of our buddies just wanted a plain old sandwich , which was easily accommodated , followed by really quite decent ice cream. I´d recommend the noodle soups which are a meal in themselves and very tasty.

We were only in Hue for one night so went here upon the recommendation of our guide. The food was very good and far tastier than what we had been eating in South Vietnam. Service was very polite and very efficient; perhaps too as starters turned up almost immediately and mains straight after that. So if you are looking for... More

The food was lovely in here, lots of people were reserving tables, so either get here earlier or make a reservation or you won't get a table. Staff were all friendly. The only downfall was the room was very hot and felt like there was little air in there.
