“Top notch Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Great little find in the middle of the main street. Great food, good service and they also show the videos like the ones shown in MAG across the road. Craters caters to both Lao and western tastes.

“Can only remember poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

We went here to watch a film about the atrocities in Laos. The waiter seemed to be doing us a favour. Almost at the end some friends joined us and when they said they were just dropping by to say hello, the waiter made a funny face, which we found rude

“Not cheap but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

The mango shake was really good and the Tom Yum Soup with fish I can recommend too. Free wifi but quite slow. Good for meeting other travellers.

“FAST WIFI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Food and service not too bad but the wifi is very good and fast. In Phonsavan there is not that much to choose from so its nice to have this place. They also have movie nights showing the history of the secret war...and the impact on Phonsavan
