It was ok but nothing amazing. Spring rolls were average. We had the duck with chili and peppers, the sauce was overpowering the duck. You couldn't really tell if it was duck or chicken or beef. And it wasn't spicy at all despite the chili in it. The lemon tart was good although it was served really really hot on... More

Perfect place for lunch before or dinner after visiting the palace. Had the Green Mango Salad, Crab Soup, Rice Pancake, Fried Spring Roll and Duck. All nicely done in a romantic colonial setting

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. The waitresses are very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive, and look elegant in their traditional vietnamese dress, the Ao dai. The restaurant is in a beautifully renovated french colonial villa, near to the Citadel. The interior decoration and atmosphere gives you a sense of times gone... More

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. The menu offers many interesting variations. The food we ordered was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful. This place is not exactly cheap, but sometimes you have to... More

Les Jardins De La Carambole is a new restaurant in Hue serving Vietnamese and French cuisine. It is inside the Citadel, very near the Forbidden City. It's an impressive reconstruction of a French Colonial Villa. Great attention was paid to every detail of the historic reconstruction.
