This great restaurant is set in an old colonial villa situated just off the river. The food is French, cheap and plentiful. The proprietor Jean-Pierre is a great bloke to talk to. May I suggest you order youtr dishes one at a time because you may find you run out of room to finish everything.

Our evening there was fantastic, the atmosphere (and prices)were just like old times. Try one of the souffles they are a house specialty.

OK there are mosquitos there like all over Vientiane. Wear long trousers and long sleeves or cover yourself with repellant. If you dont the staff have a fantastic electronic "tennis raquet" for getting rid of the mossies. Go, you will love it. Dont forget to say G'day to Jean Pierre.

I've never had a good meal in this place. It seems to be popular with the tourists, another reason to stay away, but the food is just not very good. And the service is worse. It's all atmosphere and no substance when it comes to the food.

I have eaten here many times. A nice cosy setting, outside and inside, and the food is good french food without pretentions. Always perfectly prepared, nice bread, always a real pleasure to have dinner. The pate is very good, the steaks are excellent, I was less charmed by the souffle (bit too much flour). generous portions too.

French food at its best, we went there for lunch and returned the same day for dinner. Daily lunch specials for under US$ 5! Fantastic pizzas from the wood fired oven, souffles cooked to perfection, large salads to share as starters and many french classics (beef tongue, rabbit, chateaubriand). Service can be a bit slow at times due to the fact that the place is packed for both lunch and dinner, so make reservations!
