Description: 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.

A reasonable place to try Hue cuisine. The ambiance is quite lovely. The tasting menus are interesting. If you are afraid to eat on the street (which tends to be much better in the right places(, this should do and it was better than some of the other high rated options.

Took the Kids for Dinner. Love this Place. The ambiance and the food make coming to Hue a must. I'd highly recommend this place and getting here from the hotel district was great fun by cyclo.

Visited in Jan 2013 to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary - as restaurant was recommended to us by friends. The restaurant was beautiful, clean and great decor. We ordered the banquet and the food was fabulous. However the food came out so fast we felt like they wanted the 6 of us out of there as soon as possible - they were taking an empty plate away and replacing it with the next course. We advised the restaurant when booking and when we were there that it was for a special occasion - our 30th wedding anniversay but they didn't acknowledge that at all - maybe that is Vietnamese culture, not sure. When you get dressed up to go out for dinner for a special occasion you don't expect it to be all over in an hour. Also felt for a restaurant of that calibre the ambiance could be improved by dimming the lights.

Delicious Vietnamese and French food (we ate the Vietnamese) in a beautiful setting with attentive and friendly service. We sat on the front porch, which was perfect. While we were, two tour buses arrived, so we were glad we weren't upstairs or in the front room. Two things could have improved the ambiance: dimmer lighting and more atmospheric music.

I just asked the manager to make a selection for us, and she has done beautifully. The local dishes were amazing and the service was perfect.
The staff is very friendly and the manager very attentive. A pianist was playing during the evening, the restaurant was packed.
I totally recommend this restaurant, it is a must in Hue.
