This is a bright, clean and very cool place with a totally chill vibe with a nice mix of music playing in the background. Waitstaff is pleasant and attentive. It is small with two floors of seating. The second floor seating has a library fell to it. I had the pleasure of enjoying the pork bowl. It was light, fresh, flavourful and filling. The only comment is that I wish there were fresh chilies atop as opposed to using the bottled stuff on the table. I will return to check-out other items on the menu as it all looked yummy as it passed me by to other tables.

Beautiful place in Vientianne. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Cesadilla and burritos was delicious. Guacamole and salsa was good too. Not spicy, but tabasco was on the table. I will definitely be back to try other dishes.

This clean, efficient, quality little cafe has it together. Friendly service with a smile. Quality food, fresh ingredients, an extensive menu of Chilean delights. I had the empanada set (chicken, pork, beef) and they came out piping hot, golden brown, and delicious. Served with green sauce, guacamole, and a fresh salsa, these are a must try. But there are many mouth watering options here, and I hope to return to give them a try. The tacos look wonderful, as well as numerous other items. There is a clearly positive vibe in the place from the moment you walk in. The service and attitude here surpasses any I have experienced in the city, high end, low end, and in between. the day I visited, there were young, old and in middle aged people from a number of countries, as well as locals. An international clientele going where the good food is! A truly delightful dining experience at affordable prices. Bonus for foreigners like me, they accept credit cards with a small surcharge! Highly recommended for all ages.

What a find. Great food, amazing price and friendly staff. I highly recommend. I had the special, it came with four soft shell tacos, pulled pork, guacamole, salsa, fresh salad and a cheese quesadilla, all for about $5. Delicious. I couldn't eat all of it, not that I didn't try. I have two more days here in Vientiane, so I will definitely be going back.

I had paltarreina with shrimps and a delicious poke bowl. The grass leeches is not really so but it's still delicious. I had a great dinner, fantastic meal and cozy evening just a short walk from my hotel (Crowne Plaza), and would love to have many more! Gracias amigas!!

We got recommended this restaurant by a couple on holiday, they said it was the nicest place they ate in Vientiane so we gave it a try. It did not disappoint!! Lots of options to choose from, we got the Quesadillas and taco set, it was gorgeous. Also don’t miss out on the lovely desserts, the banoffee pie was 10/10! The staff were super friendly, giving local recommendations and chatty. Lovely time at Bacan Cafe!

Staying at Somerset, we found this awesome place for brekkie. Lovely balance of flavours, fresh and appetising generous servings. Chilled atmosphere and great friendly staff, quick service. Latinos will enjoy this taste from home!

Great Chilean food at very reasonable prices. They also have happy hour cocktail specials that are ridiculously cheap and tasty. All dishes were outstanding. The staff and the owner were all very friendly, efficient, and attentive. We liked this place so much that we planned to dine there again but they were closed the second night we attempted to eat there. Highly recommended. One of the best meals we had in Vientiane.

Taco Tuesday! Best shrimp tacos I’ve ever eaten, everything at Bacan is excellent...but the shrimp tacos are a cut above, large succulent, perfectly spiced grilled shrimp on fresh made tortillas with avocado, corn, peppers, sour cream, homemade sauces and more. This is authentic eats, not the usual Tex-Mex stuff you normally get out of Latin America. César and his staff do it right! You won’t be disappointed.

Phenomenal! We’ve travelled South America and Mexico, and never been so grateful to find such authentic tasting food outside the country. We’ve loved every dish we’ve eaten, the Sopapillas are a favorite and the carne mechada is a dream. Wonderful owners who make you feel so welcome every moment of your visit and obviously are passionate about serving a great product. I don’t feel like leaving this review will give the right understanding of how good the food is. A must visit for fresh food lovers. Muchisimas gracias, un buen trabajo a todos d equipo.

I called and used Bacan’s delivery for my taco dinner, Mechada pork and fish were tonight’s choices...delivered on time and still hot with their homemade salsas, delish. Got some empanadas for tomorrow too, cheese and pork. I love the avocado on the tacos...best Latin food in town, no doubt. Thanks, César!

Our family of four had an early dinner here tonight. We showed up 30 min before closing but the staff was gracious, didn't rush us, and served us amazingly good food in great time. It was Empanada Wednesday and the kids both had those and loved them. I had pork tacos, which were fabulous. I can't remember what my husband had but he ate every bite. We shared chocolate tres leche cake for dessert. And all of it was reasonably priced so we didn't feel like we were breaking the bank to have this amazing dinner. Thank you! And keep up the good work!

We called in for breakfast two days on the trot. Although it is in an unpromising area the cafe itself is nicely decorated and air conditioned. The upstairs looked worth a try for dinner or lunch too. Run by a friendly Chilean chap we had quesadillas, and fish tacos. Both were fresh tasting and well seasoned . Coffee was good and cakes home made. At 20 000 kits ($2) per main it made a welcome change from our recent diet of mainly Asian food.
