The cocktails are great here. They now serve British cider (a real treat if you live in Laos!) and Hendricks gin! Cocktails take little while when its busy but they always get it right with a smile. But, it is the breakfasts that tick all the boxes and more. The full English, full veg and eggs benny and its variations are fab. If you have the eggs benny, ask for the suace on the side and its so, so deliciously rich that you might not be able to finish it all! There is free wifi and its open from 7am as it serves the hotel clientele next door. The set lunches are great value. I prefer their local menu for lunch and dinner but that's personal taste. Go and chill out.

Nice spot, good menu, good ambience, for all ages. We had a group of 12 for dinner and had such a good meal we came back again for lunch a couple of days later. Hope the (government/local municipality?) fix up the road outside soon though for the restaurant's sake, as the appeal of the outdoor seating suffers as a consequence.

The Spirit House, which is a fabulous cocktail bar in Vientiane. I love it.

They make THE BEST cocktails and have some great tapas. Ginga, the manager, asked us to test cocktails for him. OMG YES PLEASE!!!!

We had MANY cocktails and Ginga provided more tapas. The aranchini balls, dried beef, fish sticks and Asian bruschetta were yummy yummy yummy!!!!

The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, the food is fabulous and the drinks are even better.

Try a Zen Master or a Castro's Mojitio. You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is attached to the Beau Rivage hotel, about 5 minutes walk from the town alongside the Mekong. It's a nice walk to get there. There could be a lovely view from the restaurant but a lot of it is blocked by a few trees. The food and cocktails were tasty but we had better in Vientiane.

Great place to watch the sunset and chill. The music is kept in the background. Although there is a constant flow of people, the place is not crowded or noisy. An extensive menu of cocktails and creative tapas. Definitely recommended even though it's a bit of a walk from the main waterfront area.
