Our group dined here while we were touring Hue and the French fare was a real treat. Because it was a group dinner we were offered "beef tenderloin" or fresh fish as our entrees. The fish looked excellent and was served in a manageable portion. The "tenderloin" was tender but was prepared in a stroganoff style served with mashed potatoes... More

Very delicious vietnamese cuisine from Hué as well as italian and french food.

This restaurant is located in a small street not far from the imperial citadel. It is a beautiful building. We had a nice table on the balcony on the first floor.

One recommendation guys, if you want to eat at this restaurant. Try to get a table on Monday or Thursday. That is usually when there is a live imperial music before dinner starts and it's in the second floor. The food was quite good. We only picked the French dishes because we wanted to know how accurate it was. And... More

The restaurant is an old residential house not easy to find. No air conditioning, and this was really a problem .... The menu is an incredible huge proposal of different dishes without any sense. Perfect, maybe, for the inexperienced tourists ! Good luck!

Impressive choice of French options. Both the Vietnamese and French dishes were excellent. The restaurant is very authentic and located right next to the imperial city.
