Off the main road, cute little spot. The food is pretty good for the price,but nothing crazy special. Coffee is ok, there's better coffee in town. The staff are really friendly.

We had dinner here twice whilst in Vang Vieng and we enjoyed it both times. Contrary to many reviews on here, we had great service from a very friendly, smiley young waiter. They didn't have the veggie burger when we ordered it, and the meals...More

No surprises to find this place so low on the Trip Advisor list. Looks impressive both inside and out but it's a false facade. I was the only customer in at the time and I ordered chicken pad thai. I don't mind waiting for a...More

No service!, you must go to ask service personal if you want something. The Cordon Bleu was not original but not bad and the price is very good. Just go if you have hunger!
