A nice place from the outside and interesting inside. Well decorated in a funny way. The staff is friendly but slow. Seems they have a very difficult manager who has him/herself no clue about the business. Food comes in great portions and tastes good. I was there with 3 friends and don't know what we were all eating exactly but... More

Walk in, ignored, flag down a waiter who waves at some empty tables so I choose one and sit down. Wait. No menu. Ask 2 waiters for one and finally one silently arrives. 5m later and still without any service I wave another waiter down who silently takes my order, the 4 cheese salad. Can't say I've heard great things... More

Our group came here as we couldn't find the Restaraunt we were looking for. This was quite good. We all had different entrees. I shared the pizza (good, not great) and spaghetti (very good). 3 people had soufflés and enjoyed them. Two had fish dishes and one had duck. All were happy with their meals. Service was fine.

Nice staff, tasty food, nice decor. Went there a few times and the quality is always good. A little bit disappointed by the asparagus with mint sauce (not mint sauce?). Anyway a very good place in Vientiane for many years already. Recommended.

Vendome is interesting. It has a really broad menu. You want pizza, they have lots of different options. Salads? Terrines, or other French-style dishes? Yes indeed! It has a nice deck area (terrace?) where you can eat outside - I have never eaten inside. Most recently I went there with friends. Two of us had salads and two of us... More

High quality French restaurant. So much so that we went twice. Be warned - you need to be hungry to eat here as the portions are approaching American size! Care is taken in the preparation so don't expect fast food. This is quality, relaxed dining. The staff were well intentioned but were clearly intimidated by having the owner at his... More

We had dinner at this restaurant last night, being our last night in Vientiane. To begin with, we asked for a glass of white wine each which was totally undrinkable and was out of a cask (bladder). We then asked for the wine list and the waiter pointed at the fridge which had six bottles of wine, only one being... More

Over the years, I've been in Le Vendome a fair few times and though the food has remained fairly constant and decent value, the atmosphere and service has drifted. My most recent visit was when my parents came from the UK and we were in the vicinity, so we went here. The staff were rude and uninterested. The food took... More

Wanting a salad I headed to Le Vendome which I spotted earlier on a walk. I ordered the romaine goat cheese salad and it was awesome. The dressing was delicious. The highlight was my 4 cheese soufflé. It was perfectly cooked with a hint of garlic. It was amazing. I also had 2 glasses of white wine. The total was... More

Huge very tasty salads - one is enough for two people to share, excellent steaks and friendly service. Lots of middle class Laotians eat here, and I can understand why, Great value for money but even in low season can get very busy, so booking recommended.

Thank thailandtony
