After not being able to get spring rolls in a neighbouring restaurant we entered Douang Deuane for lunch. We were met by the French owner who was welcoming and we sat and contemplated the menu. In addition there were several blackboards with specials. In the end we went with specials; Margret de canard and with red wine sauce and Les... More

As promised, this place was great value. Simple, well priced, decent food, friendly service. It's one of those restaurants (common in this part of the world) where the menu is 10 pages long and covers such a variety that you have no clue what the restaurant's actual specialty was. With so many options to cover, someone is bound to be... More

So we had steak, and roualde, and some soups, and some great wine, and it was all simply delicious, the waiting time was just right, they were doing some real cookiing, and my only remark would be they brought the main...

I stopped here for lunch last week. I have lived in Vientiane for almost a year now but I had not been able to find this place until recently! They have an extensive menu and additional (mostly French) items on the blackboards. I went for the cheap set menu option which was sour fried beef with sticky rice. It was... More

Visited the restaurant after reading reviews here. The restaurant was not easily spotted at first but after looking carefully, I found the restaurant at last. It is opposite a hostel called Funky Monkey or something (can't exactly remember). They have a variety of food choices (Western and Lao dishes) including vegetarian dishes. I ordered the sweet and sour fish with... More

This is a favourite restaurant for expats. Great Lao food and some serious steaks, farang style. M. Claude, the owner does a great job. Some times he plays the piano... Seriosly good value for money. Great Location.

Superb little restaurant, well presented tasty food, and friendly staff. With the restaurant owner entertaining us all with his piano skills all even. What a relaxing and enjoyable experience, and a great way to enjoy the fusion of French and Lao cuisine. Lovely!

We loved Douang Deuane. The food was beautiful, the service perfect, the general ambience relaxing and chilled, the price was right...! And having dinner in a French restaurant, while the owner plays piano in the background took me back to dining in Paris. A perfect evening and we'll be going back soon (tomorrow, perhaps!!) to try more of the menu.... More
