“A fantastic French restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

This place is simply fantastic. The menu has enough choices and a great wine list. We tried the Aubergine with goat cheese as the starter , a steak and the cod all very nice. The beef was tender and juicy and the cod tasted very fresh. The service is friendly and the ambience was great. It's expensive compared to other restaurants there but absolutely worth it. Two of us for the food above and a couple of drinks each was about 100 usd

“Very good wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is a cool place is downtown VTE. Excellent wines by the glass. Music during the week and a lunch buffet. And one of the best restaurants in town, LaSilapa now upstairs.

“A great evening out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Great wines, mocktails and modified irish coffees (baileys instead of whiskey!) are just a few of my favourite things at I-beam.

“Great tapas, great wine, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A great addition to the dining scene in Vientiane: a good range of flavorful tapas which can be chosen individually or selected for you to provide a spectrum of tastes and textures. A welcome move is the recent addition of four "set menus" featuring cheese, seafood, meat or vegetarian dishes which are excellent. A really great feature of I Beam is the ability to buy a range of both still and sparkling wine by the glass, from the bottle. And good wine at that!
Another welcome improvement is the addition of a new buffet lunch for 50,000 kip per person. There is a set main course with entree and desert, simple but fresh and tasty. It is very good value.
The setting is pleasant with seating at the bar or at tables, and the service is excellent, led by the proprietor who shows a genuine interest in all the clients.
Highly recommended for lunch or dinnertime.
