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.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! It's tucked away on a tiny little side street and is a bit tricky to find, but it's worth the walk. This French restaurant has quite a good menu, although I admit we've only ordered Italian foods off the menu. We have visited this restaurant on my yearly visa run for three years in... More

An extensive menu and great food. If you don't eat French very often this will give you a chance to explore the cuisine without breaking the bank. As with so many restaurants in Vientiane, the value for your money is outstanding. Appetizers, dinner, drinks and dessert was less than 40USD. The little scoop of ice cream I thought I was... More

We haven't been here for several years, but it hasn't changed greatly. The outdoor balcony looks nice, but insects are an issue. Inside it is dimly lit and rather dingy. The decor is not very attractive. Service is acceptable but not enthusiastic. The menu is quite extensive. There is no problem with the quantity of each serving, but that does... More

I'm surprised to see this restaurant so far down on the list. We ate here twice over our week in Vientiane and loved it both times. It's not the most fancy, it's not haute cuisine, it's just provincial French fare done well. We especially loved the cheese plate, soufflé, and the lasagna with bechamel sauce. Service is slow, for sure,... More
