Welcoming atmosphere, beautiful building, excellent service. Piano in background. Very generous portions. Amazing cheese board - took half back to the hotel. Worth a visit.

Our family of 5 adults and a 15 month old child enjoyed this restaurant. Beautiful building and sitting out on the balcony at night was perfect. Food was good and service excellent. Definitely a good choice for family's in Hue. Recommended

I agree with the last few reviews, this is an excellent hidden jem down a lane near the citadel. French / Vietnamese (and pizazz), attentive staff, excellent food and air con. Huba beer - 30K dong. Green mango salade - 130K dong (enough for two). Fried noodle and pork - 120K dong.

This restaurant is a mixture of French and Asian dishes and is situated very close to the Citadel. We were welcomed by the Owner (I think) who was very friendly and shown to a table on the verandah. The staff were friendly and efficient and our drinks arrived very quickly. The bread was warm and tasty. There were four in... More

So far the most refined place I know in Hue. Great food, large portions, prime service and charming decoration. Not a budget option but definitely value for money.

Not the easiest place to find. We eventually gave in to the constant barrage of Cyclo riders and took a couple to the restaurant. Not the cheapest in Hue, but definitely one of the nicest.

This is a pleasant restaurant, good rather than very good. I had dinner there during a visit to Hue. It was particularly hot during the day, up to 40c so I wasn't too hungary. I had a canard a la citronelle, decemt enough but nothing to rave about, rice acc with some raw veg garnish. Tarte a la mangue which... More

Great food and interesting mix of dishes with an old style French feeling. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is perfect. It is also in a great location just a few minutes walk from the Citadel. We had a very meal with cool, refreshing drinks which was a great way to end our hot day in... More

This was our favourite dining experience on this trip to Vietnam, our second time to the country. Make sure to get a table on the upstairs balcony.
