“very nice restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Although my experience was not magnificent, I was positively impressed by the place. We had burgers, which unfortunately for us were very heavily mixed with onions. This, combined with the very sweet sauce, made the burgers too sweet for our taste. Nonetheless, they were well cooked and the ingredients were fine. The service was exceptionally friendly and the place is neat. I want to go back on Thursday to try their Kebab special (110000k for 2 people).

“OK but............”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2012

Popped in for a meal after work and clearly the trade was slow but the staff were welcoming and attentive. The AC was either off or on low because there were so many flies around tht it was hard to eat or have our drinks without brushing them away. Fabulously fresh garlic bread and bruschetta. The mixed platter was great value for money but mu husband's steak looked pasty in colour and not I would have expected for a medium rare cooked steak. May be I was thinking abit too much of a pseudo Hard Rock Cafe but it was abit a disappointment but I have to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and try it out on a busy evening and maybe it'll be better.

“VERY disappointed..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

The place looks great don't get me wrong. Sometimes when one is travelling, you just need some western style food as a break from Asian which is why I went here. I ordered the rib starter and tenderloin main.
They both came out at the same time which was disappointing. The ribs were in a delicious sauce. However, I agree with another reviewer saying that the steaks are pre-cooked. Mine was cold and not cooked to order. You just know when a steak has been freshly cooked and this wasn't. The red wine sauce I ordered just tasted like gravy. The 'chef' was doing the rounds of the tables and obviously all the cooking was left to his assistant so it was all show.
I then ordered apple crumble with vanilla ice-cream. This too was cold and the vanilla ice cream had coconut in it which didn't really go with the crumble and it's not mentioned on the menu. Not everyone likes coconut. I left most of it.
The waiting staff were nice and attentive.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone though on my experience. If you're going to have this sort of western oasis then at least get it right! And given the chef walking round is French, there's no excuses.

“great meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

I spent 4 days in Vientiane and enjoyed 3 afternoons here, sampling the various types of meat and the ever wonderful Lao beer. The waiters were friendly and the meat excellent. It was more expensive than the average food in laos but it was worth it.
