La Cave offers upstairs dining with a view of the Nam Pu fountain area. The ambiance was excellent and the service good. They had a good range of wines and spirits. The food was o.k.

When I come to Vientiane, I always try to have a dinner at this restaurant. The service is good and the owner always informs if everything is going well. Last week I ordered a steak and it tasted good. So bad that the Lao government decided to change the namphou square... and the view from the terrace of this good... More

We ordered the fixed menu and had a fabulous soup, delicious bread, a wonderful barbecued piece of steak and baked potato for about $8. The setting was very relaxing, away from the crowds. If you are looking... More

The restaurant is located in the Fountain Square. It is a tiny place, yet it gives a very cozy & homey feeling. The food was tasty. Wine was great. It is a bit pricey if compared to the normal food cost in Laos but it's still much lower than what we have to pay for a French cuisine in Bangkok.... More
