Tasty food, a mixture of hearty french cuisine and different laotian dishes, with sometimes very personal touches. Very refreshing to notice that the cook knows exactly what he?/she? is doing - meat tender as butter, vegetables still crunchy, tasty small details finish off the plate. Plainly put - VERY GOOD FOOD. Attentive but not intrusive very soft and pleasant service,... More

I've been to Douang Deuane on every visit to Vientiane, and apart from one visit, it has always been a good place to sample good quality Laos food. This time, the food reached new hights.

This is a great little restaurant. The French owner is a really nice guy and entertains with the piano sometimes in the evening. There are few places in Vientiane where the Lao food is as good as the International food but this place seemed good for both options. They also do a very decent, good value steak. Good prices all...
