It took us a while to find the place, which is in the only street in Hue where there is some atmosphere in the evening. We had not booked but secured a good street-side table. Both the service and food quality were excellent. Highly recommended.

Had a good selection of Vietnamese and French food. The onion soup was amazing. Great food, drink and located close to river but not on busy traffic street, across the street from the Moonlight Hotel.

French restaurant with real French chef. I enjoyed the Macrel. It was well presented and tasted very nice. Very busy so book a table if you are a big group. Staff friendly.

Were aiming to go to the posh Carambole but stumbled here instead. No harm done. Very happy with our evening meal, had different set menus between us, which gave us variety and things we would have avoided by their description.

Expected a lot from this little French style restaurant but the fillet steak was more of a rump texture. For the 220 VND price point it was a good price for steak but it certainly wasn't fillet. I wanted to love this place but was...More
