I needed some western food so had an amazing chicken burger with chips at only 45,000 kip, whilst my husband went for the Asian / Lia choice... More

We enjoyed amazing Asian and European Dinner and Breakfast! Super friendly staff gave us a really special food-experience. The garden and its lights has an amazing atmosphere and the artful inside of the reastaurant aswell. We loved this place and often stayed some hours. Also very fair prices and just delicous and fresh food.

Beautiful peaceful setting. G&T's are excellent. You would swear you were in France. Beautiful artwork and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The food is amazing. You can have everything from traditional Loas food to a burger and chips. We went there most days just to sit and watch the world go by. Oh and a few g & t's.... More

This is a nice place with a chilled out atmosphere. Good toasted seaweed with beer, great combination. Not so much a cake and coffee cafe though. More a lunch or dinner place, looking at the menu.

My friend and I passed by while walking along the Mekong! Easily the best noodle soup I have had since my arrival in Laos! So many vegetables and great tasting broth! Would come by again because the menu looked fantastic! Also great service which didn't take too long! Would recommend!

I tried the fish lap, it was delicious. Really fresh and relatively cheap. The owner came to our table to explain the dishes and the staff were really attentive. Will definitely visit again before we leave!

I ordered two things: the vegetarian spring rolls and the vegetarian noodle soup. After eating a few bites of the spring rolls I discovered meat. At first the staff reputed this, then came outside a few minutes (and bites) later to confirm the recipe had changed, and now contained pork. The vegetarian noodles had no broth, just noodles, vegetables, and... More
