Bistro La Carambole is wonderful little Vietnamese/French fusion restaurant in the heart of Hue. The menu is not absurdly extensive, which is great as it means everything on it will be fresh. I visited with my wife and my late teenage son and had an...extremely enjoyable experience. I say ‘experience’ rather than just ‘meal’ as that’s what it was… the whole package. The surroundings are very tastefully French/Vietnamese and the staff are lovely. Very helpful and really friendly which, for me is all part of the experience.. My wife had grilled squid with lemongrass. This was superb. Just the right smoke ‘charring’ and the salt, pepper and lime dip was to die for… My son had beef wrapped la lot leaf (which I think is Betel leaf..). He thoroughly enjoyed this (getting him to eat anything green can be a bit of a trial..😅) I had grilled duck breast with orange sauce. This was delicious with just the right amount of citrus zing mixed with sweetness in the sauce. A very pleasant chat with the French owner on our way out capped a very enjoyable evening.More

Our Vietnamese hosts/friends took us to their favorite restaurant in Hue. We had wonderful food (French, VN, American) and GREAT service. The mushroom cream soup and crepe were outstanding. Good wine and beer. Great choices for children. AWESOME SERVICE (says the American). We look forward...to returning when we visit Hue again.More

Upon arriving in Hue this was the recommendation from our taxi driver as the place to visit. We walked down from our hotel through the bustling street traders selling there wares and when upon arrival were escorted to a table near the bar. A request...for a fan was promptly done and from there on IT GOT BETTER. Indeed the food ambience and VERY FRIENDLY LADIES WAITING ON THE TABLES MADE IT TRULY MEMORABLE. After such a great evening ticking all the right buttons we then proceeded to eat for the next 3 nights as well trying ALL different dishes. The owners can be truly proud of there staff here. BIG BIG THANK TO U ALLMore

Despite being very busy, our order arrived reasonably quickly. Hubby loved the house sausages. My calamari was cooked to perfection. The whole and cinnamon tart was delicious. Staff were unobtrusive. Highly recommend. Good prices for good quality food

We visited this restaurant on the recommenation of our personal tour guide and he was not wrong! The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly.The food was superb- we went for the 6 course fixed meal which was cooked to perfection.The shrimp...soup starter was really tasty as were the other 5 courses which included pork and duck dishes.The price was very reasonable given both the quality and quantity of the food and is well worth a visit when you are in town.Thanks to all the staff for an most enjoyable dinner.More

We stop in Hue just to go to this restaurant. Been coming here for years and never lets us down. It is in a new location though, it used to be in Pham Ngu Laos Street next to the Asia Hotel but has moved around...the corner and about 100m East. The spaghetti is yum as are all the pasta dishes. The pizza is also good. They have a good cheese platter and great selection of wines. A great place if you feel like a break from Vietnamese food (although they have Vietnamese dishes). The decor is lovely and congratulations to the owner for his attention to detail (something hard to enforce in Vietnam).More

Ate here yesterday during a tour break visiting Hue. We had a six course set menu which was excellent, I couldn’t finish it all!! The staff were very attentive, the bistro was immaculate, air conditioned. I had managed to damage my sandal during walking around...the ancient city, the sole was literally hanging off. My husband showed them the shoe, we didn’t expect the response......they managed to produce some glue and fixed my shoe. Amazing, thank you !!More

This restaurant was recommended to us and it didn't fail. I have multiple allergies and the Restaurant staff were very helpful in advising what foods could be made available to me. Starter, main course and desserts for 2 people came to 560, 000 dong. About...£19 or $24. Very enjoyable food and atmosphere. Music playing next door and lots of people walking around. Worthy of a revisit.More

I know that everyone come to Vietnam to enjoy the Vietnamese food but after one week of it I was rather happy to sit down (on a miserable rainy day!) and have a bit of french food...Assorted French Cheeses and a glass of red wine...where just perfect for a quick lunch snack! At the end of the day Vietnam was a French colony so a nod to the french cuisine could easily fit in the trip!!!More

We (4 of us) have an excellent dinner at this french bistro in Hue, Vietnam. Apart from a la carte menu they offer different set menu, Vietnamese, seafood and European. It is a five course dinner with soup, fried squid, salt and peppered king prawns,...wrapped beef with steamed rice, coconut ice cream. Their portion size is reasonable, not like tasting menu so you are well fed. We are paying £12-13 per person which is very reasonable. Local beer is less than £1 a bottle. All in all a very pleasant dining experience as service from the waitress is excellent.More

I am unable to comment on the breakfast, however, we did eat there on two evenings during a four day stay. The food was decent, as was the service.
