I understand that to experience a country it's best to try and blend in and do as the locals do. That said, the service and food here was a refreshing change. It was great to be served by very polite staff that understood and spoke English very well, they even understood the concept of my partners Gluten intolerance and offered great menu advice. The place was exceptionally clean and the food was fresh, lean and well presented in a traditional manner. This is a place we will definitely revisit and I would strongly recommend.
Almost forgot, the price won't burn a hole in your pocket either, which made it all the more satisfying.
Cheers.

The staff make you feel welcome right from the start. The menu is extensive, and while a lot of other places are cheaper, I feel this was value for money. I started with a green mango and squid salad, which was both beautiful and tasty. Then had duck with chili and lemongrass, it was so full of flavor and it's obvious that the chefs there take some pride in their garnishes.

Thanks to the TripAdvisor reviews I booked a table at La Carambole and proceeded to have the best meal of my two week stay in Vietnam. Don't let Lonely Planet steer you elsewhere: La Carambole has an eclectic menu highlighting the magnificent combination of French and Vietnamese cuisine. The food was fantastic, the service attentive and the ambiance inviting. Not for those on a tight budget but otherwise you should not miss this dining experience within the walls of the Citadel.

This was my favorite restaurant experience in Vietnam! They have two locations in Hue (one is in the backpackers ghetto) and the other is near the Citadel (shown here). We ate at both locations and the food was just as good at each location, but the environment at this one was far more amazing! It is elegant, well designed, bright, and charming. The food was a blend of Vietnamese and French and the service was great! I would recommend the more Vietnamese influenced dishes personally. We also enjoyed seeing the owner and his family eating together at both locations. You know it's good, when you see that!
