Les Jardins De La Carambole may be Hue's most visually impressive restaurant - set in a recreation French colonial villa not far from Hue Citadel.

Les Jardins De La Carambole, is a new offering from the people behind the successful La Carambole on Hue's backpacker strip.

This time, they've taken the same concept and dressed it up in a stunning reproduction of a colonial era villa located by the citadel. It's very well done.

The interiors have had the full work out from classic reproduction tiles to deep green shutters. This is a tourist restaurant par-excellence. Even so, it's worth including in your stay in Hue.

The menu's enormous, mixing up French, Italian, pizza as well as Hue specialties and a handful of other Vietnamese dishes. That's normally a red flag for me. But in Hue, it's almost standard so you better get used to it.

Pricing is higher than other restaurants in Hue but very reasonable for the setting. And most importantly, the food's good too - though perhaps not the most authentic Vietnamese food you'll enjoy during your travels.

The setting, on a quiet street by the citadel, is a big part of the appeal. Staff were friendly and helpful as well.
