This place really has an atmosphere like an authentic french restaurant. I dined here twice during my stay in Vientiane. Both times I went for lunch. Mon-Fri lunch, they do a special meal at a discount price. Both times I ordered the special meal of the day I was very satisfied.

We ordered starters and mains, one starter arrived, and then we waited, for around 10 minutes. After my partner had already finished her onion soup we waited for another 10 minutes and then my soufflé finally arrived, no apologies or anything, it seemed like that's how it usually works around here, now that I've read more reviews on here I'm...

One of the nicest french cuisine that I had in Vientiane, the place is located within city centre and it is easy to find. The place would usually be packed in the night, so remember to go there earlier to avoid long wait or disappointment. We had ordered beef steak, pizza, duck breast as well as pork pate, all taste...

After an hour we still did not have our starters. Starters and mains then turned up at the same time which the staff did not seem to think was a problem. The management were blase to anything that was going on. The food was passable but the overall experience the worst in our whole time away.

This restaurant has been around for ages, I first visited in 1999. Most recent meal there was rather unmemorable but acceptable.

Had a great meal. Wish I had found it earlier in my stay. Will definitely go back. The onion soup and potato soufflé were excellent.

I have been here over the past few years, when I first went it was good food, reasonable prices, but the building seems to be dropping to bits, the food becoming just OK, and if you want wine, its red or white, there are so many more good French restaurants in Vientiane.

This is quite a nice French restaurant with a varied menu. We ate a variety of dishes among our party, including starters and dessert, all of which were quite nice. The location is handy for hotels and just a block or so away from the riverfront, and you can site outside or in. The main problem that we experienced was... More

I had never been to this place before but the chef just quit and walked out at the place we wanted to eat at so we tried La Vendome. They have very reasonably priced French food. A huge salad we couldn't finish, beef tartare, and several soufles - see the photos. The seating, inside and out, is very pleasant and... More
