Lovely bar, great atmosphere. Best place I've been to in Vientiane to just sit, enjoy live music and have a glass of (excellent) wine. The food from the restaurant is exceptional. The pate in particular is delicious! A really nice treat.

Drank here on a couple of evenings in Vientiane. Staff were pleasant and mixed a good cocktail. Even found a bottle of Talisker on the shelf. Result!

We've visited here a few times and had a great experience each time. The happy hour is brilliant value - two for one on any beer and a plate of delicious hors d'oeuvre. The staff are friendly and the service efficient, would definitely recommend.

My wife and I often stop here for dinner. They have a nice I-Beam menu and you can also order off of the more extensive Salapa menu. Everything we have had there has been good, and we keep coming back. There used to be a really great chocolate mousse, nice and chocolaty, dense, and a great serving! But it was... More

The food was nice. I had the mixed tapas plate. It was 150000 kip. It wasn't worth the price. I was the only person there and went on the strength of the reviews on here. The service was terrible. If it was busy then it would be understandable. As I was the only person there it was inexcusable. 5 staff... More

On our recent stay in Vientiane my husband and I were looking for somewhere nice for a few drinks. We came across this lovely bar. On looking at the drinks menu I chose to drink cider. I would normally drink wine but thought the wine to be very pricey. We have been 10 days in Laos in several different areas... More

Pricey, but clean place with great food. BUT, the owner is Eastern Canuk. But he is nice guy. Also great for social gatherings.

Considering the weather, it's difficult to maintain the quality of wine in Laos. I order wine at many restaurants which is usually disappointing but here, it's ALWAYS good. Food is unique and tasty, staff is nice and friendly in right amount, never been disturbed. Place is clean and cozy. I just love this place! I know how hard they work... More
