French-style bistro with a mix of French dishes from tartines to pastries, and local Laotian noodles and rice. The pho was very good and pretty inexpensive at 25,000 kip.

A great lunch stop for Pho. Also had good wine at a good price. Highly recommend. We planned to come back for a second meal, but didn't have enough time. Will definitely be back.
