This place could be a gold mine, if.... But let's start from the beginning. The dinner was meant as a farewell dinner of friends, a good mix between Vietnamese, Viet-Khieu and Europeans, 16 people in all. My wife, a friend and I arrived in a pouring rain, after our taxi driver, who obviously didn't know the place, had driven us... More

Beautifully set out place classic Vietnamese buildings , furniture and decor. Food is also classic Hue style spot on for presentation and taste. The set menu of 5 to 6 dishes provides a range of food types and is worth a try. Not expensive considering quality and service.

It is an exceptional environment, almost like a luxury private residence or club. The food is okay in term of taste, nicely decorated. The price is of course expensive, as it is suitable for such environment. We went in as a large group. Would I recommend? Probably, it was almost the last day of our trip in Vietnam, and everyone...

The restaurant is a bit out of the town but the garden setting and old style restaurant is incredible. Unfortunately the food did not match. We ordered caramelised pork which was bland and Tiger prawns which had a nice sauce but by the time we peeled them the sauce had gone. The staff are not very experienced and we ordered... More

After the hectic bustle of Hue, this was a welcome oasis in a gorgeous setting, with outstanding service. The food was high end, compatible to Michelin standard albeit Vietnamese imperial cooking. I went with my mother and we were both extremely happy with their standard all around. I would recommend it for couples, (it's very romantic!) and families of all... More

We were worried that this place might be a crappy tourist trap, but were impressed. Sure, it's upscale /pricey /tourist catering - if you're only in Hue briefly just sample the local street food for $1/meal - but the food is fantastic, different, and delivered in a beautiful setting. We had a three course set menu and split a bottle... More

Pluses: Beautifully served traditional local food. Faultless, a foodies heaven. Minuses: where were all the diners? This place deserves to be packed. Verdict: if in Hue, do yourself a favour and eat here. It's not cheap but it's a sensory experience, gourmet food in very atmospheric surroundings. Tip: don't be stressed by the drive there, it is a bit off... More

As part of a day trip we had lunch at this restaurant. It was one of the best meals we had in Vietnam. Everything was excellent. Location, food, staff. Would love to have a royal dinner here.

The food and the live music at the Ancient Hue restaurant were absolutely fantastic- and authentic Vietnamese. Getting there is tricky, and it is easy to miss the small galley leading to this place. But once there- it was an exhilarating experience. The landscaped courtyard leading to the restaurant was very nice too.
