This place is perfection in eating out. Set in the most beautiful city in SE Asia, their fairly short menu, French overall, has exquisite dishes from Vietnam, Laos and Thailand as well. The manager is French and his Laos staff are very professional and utterly charming. You can sit inside the restaurant, outside on the terrace or across the road on another terrace, next to the river. In the evening it is cool and relaxing, The building and the furnishings are beautiful and drinks are interesting and inexpensive. Try the Curry Ga from Vietnam and from the desserts cafe liegeois from Belgium ( a wonderful coffee ice cream dish with cold espresso, cream and roasted almonds).At lunchtime the croquemonsieur is the best I have ever eaten. Value for money is excellent here and overall it is a delightful place to spend an evening.
