Our guide highly recommended this restaurant to us. It was not bad... the food was ok, service ok, prices ok, location and locale ok, but I would have expected more because of the guide's high recommendation. That said, I probably would recommend, although just not with the glowing recommendation of our guide.

Very flavourful crepe. We had the mushroom and cheese in a wine cream sauce. Could have licked the plate to get it all! Crepe was around 120,000 dong.

We ate at lunch time and the food was okay, but the atmosphere was pretty well non-existent and the staff appeared to be not very interested in their customers.

La Carambole topped off our visit to Hue. Chi,our hostess, is the best example of professional dining attendant we have found in Vietnam. Charming restaurant decor complemented the fine quality food and service. Congratulations to founder Christian Athenaux and wife Ha for creating such a fine restaurant.

A quaint restuarant with a great dessert and wine selection. The other items on the menu also seemed great but the desserts are what we went for because they were great.

A group of us went there last night and we were all quite pleased with our choices. We ordered a selection of Vietnamese dishes and found them all quite tasty and not drowning in sauce. The menu is quite varied with French, Italian and Vietnamese choices. We stayed with Vietnamese so cannot comment on the others. Many patrons were ordering... More

I saw all the great reviews so we gave it a try. I have to say the food was ok but we've had better. To be honest, so of the dishes were very good while others were just average. The rice and noodle dishes were nothing outstanding, we did have a good shrimp dish. The deserts were disappointing. A lively... More

Have been in Vietnam for 6 months and this was our worst meal. Could almost hear the ping of the microwave as our food was served! Pizzas were small and still frozen in the centre and rubbery, the pasta dish was hot on the outside and cold underneath-and far too salty. My boyfriends fish was ok but basic. The restaurant...

We ordered the set meal. Every dish was tasty and a great introduction to Hue food. Highly recommended. There is a newer branch called Le Jardin de Carambole which I heard serves the same food but has a better ambiance.

Restaurant is centrally located in the town and close to many of the other establishments frequented by tourists. The menu appears to have no direct focus and appears to have French, Vietnamese, Italian and other offerings. We elected to have the Vietnamese set menu which was reasonably priced at 200k VN Dong per person. The courses were varied and reasonably... More
