This restaurant was recommended to us by a Hue local. We we there for a late lunch so restaurant pretty empty and staff were therefore attentive. It was so lovely to be presented with a wine list as we haven't eaten in many places in Vietnam that offer wine. Nice wine, really good food. I had a local noodle soup... More

This was by far the best dinner I have had in Vietnam since I arrived. I tried s couple of local hue dishes and they were delicious. A bustling restaurant. Good cake and good food.

After 8 solid days of noodles I really needed a western style sandwich and some hot chips. I had the bacon and egg baguette and a side of pomme Frits. My wife had the green papaya and shrimp salad. The food was very good reasonably priced, the staff spoke good English and were engaging. I decided to write this review... More

We ordered the coconut water and a beer. The coconut had ice poured into it which diluted it, but more importantly we were concerned about the water that was used to make the ice... was it bottled? Who knows. After the ice-incident, we decided to leave the restaurant and ate instead at Risotto Restaurant which was just down the street... More

This place is a French/Vietnamese fusion. Yes, it does have a lot of tourists but the food is still good quality and value for money. It was warm in there but we had 2 big fans pointed at us so we were ok, but some other people moved as they were too hot. For 4 people mains + cocktails came... More

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!!!

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
