As a lover of Belgian beer it was a no brainer for me to visit this place. They have a great selection and all we ordered was on stock. The food was amazing as well. Try the Belgian beef baked in beer (vlaams stoofvlees)!

Only when you've had too many are you able to make inspired choices from the huge range of beers on offer here. The Belgian beers are all imported (blinding glimpse of the obvious, really) and are pricey compared with the local stuff (another BFOTO). But what you're paying for here is the atmosphere, the Tin Tin inspired decor (that's one... More

Westerners really flock to this place like crazy--it was busy every single day during the week we were in town. I'm not one to go to a foreign country and then seek out the places to sit and hang out with other people from my own country, I don't see the point in it, but if that's what you're into... More

This is a cool little cafe on the mekong river (can't see the river by the way). They have an awesome Tin Tin theme which I enjoyed. They have loads of Belgium beers (apart from quack which was a let down), and the price is roughly the same as to what you would spend in Belgium or UK so for... More

Good place to eat Steak or Moule-Frite with a good Belgian Beer!! But the beers are quite overpriced! Still a good place and the owner is nice

We've been here two times during our stay in Vientiane and we had great times. It is pleasant to grab a belgian beer like La Chouffe :) However, we don't recommend to eat mussels here, there were very dry and not tasty

I like to come here for the atmosphere, a beautiful bar with a great choice of music. It's good to hear some red hot chili peppers and acdc after a long time being in Asia. It's a good place for new people coming in Lao to try all the different kind of local beers, my favorites are the Namkhong special,... More

We didn't eat here, but the beer is amazing. Obviously privet considering it's mainly Belgian beer, but it's worth making a few sacrifices for. 100% recommended.

This place is an authentic Belgian restaurant with a great beer selection by the riverside in downtown Vientiane. If you are a beer aficionado or a beer aficionado in the making, this is the place to go! It serves up various traditional Belgian dishes along with a few international favorites. So far, the steak is my favorite and serves up... More
