“High expectations”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

When we entered this restaurant the couple close to the door said you have made a good choice this is fantastic. Maybe i had been spoilt by the previous restaurants that we had visited in Vietnam but while the food is good it is not exceptional.

“What a dump!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

We are currently eating at this place and quite frankly I feel sorry for my wife and I.

The soup was average. The rest was abhorrent. The staff is as dumb as a door knob. They even tried to pass on pork as chicken before our incredulous eyes.

Make your self a favour an avoid this place! Thank us later! :-)

“Magic blend of France and Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

We arrived into Hue late tired and hungry. La Carambole was nearing closing time but the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food is a unique fusion of French and Vietnamese. I had a main of grilled chicken dish and my wife had duck with an orange sauce. The coffee was the best we have had since arriving in Vietnam. It was so good we came back the following night to try some of the fish dishes. The Mackerel with caramel sauce served in a clay pot was delicious. Prices were very reasonable, inexpensive and excellent meals. Both nights were against a background of Dragon Dancers, drummers and Happy Buda's providing the on street entertainment to celebrate the Moon Festival.

“Average food and service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We had a goats cheese salad and steak dinner. Both were basic, but filling portions. The red wine was not very good however and the service seemed a bit confused. They did try hard. I would recommend sitting inside.
