Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Good menu of Hue foods and French foods. Certainly a chance to try something new with good wine or beer. One member in our part had cool pasta but otherwise it was good. The owner was present which is nice.

“Top Recommendation: Les Jardins de La Carambole”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

MinMax Travel Day Tours provided most of what we needed on our family trip. Still, there were a few times we ventured out and about to find restaurants and shopping without the tours. While in Hue, Vietnam we obtained a recommendation to eat at Les Jardins de La Carambole from the locals. It is a French restaurant with Vietnamese and French cuisine. We soon found they offer breakfast, brunch and late night meals.

Almost anywhere you eat or travel in Vietnam it is going to be affordable. Most meals were between $5 and $20 making it perfect for our family to afford. The food, service, atmosphere and value were all just what we had hoped for. The ambience alone made you fit into the culture and enjoyment of the city. Here you can make certain you are dining in a restaurant you trust if you are afraid of eating on the streets. More importantly, you can try Hue cuisine. It might not be the most authentic food, but it was enough of an experiment for the kids, so we got through the meal without trouble. It was also easy to get to from the tourist areas.

“A thoroughly enjoyed experience!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

What a lovely restaurant! The building itself is quit beautiful - French colonial architecture, tastefully decorated too. The food was wonderful! A nice blend of modern Vietnemese cuisine with some French influence here and there. The staff was really nice and exceptionally attentive - even showed us how to correctly eat some of the dishes. Nice ambiance, they even had someone playing the piano live. All in all, nice experience! Obviously expect to spend more here than you normally would at any other Vietnemese restaurant, but you won't be disappointed.

“Better than most, but...”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

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.
