There are many nice places to eat in Vientiane ranging from delicious street food to high end places like La Belle Époque. We wanted to enjoy a combined Laos NY Eve dinner and Easter dinner so went high end! Booking was straight forward. We were offered an inside table or a pool view table. We took an outside table. We... More

We only had breakfast here and it was superb. Lovely comfortable sitting and setting. Good range of breakfast items on the buffet and cooked dishes delivered by an attentive staff who didn't always get it right but were ever helpful.

The chef deliverd our meals of fresh rice paper roll, honey pork rib and chicken larb, each dish competed for top dish. Highly recommend based on food alone but totally... More

Vientiane does not have as many colonial buildings converted into restaurants as Luang Prabang, but hotel Setha Palace, which houses La Belle Epoque is one such building form 1932, now restored in its full glory. I would have had a meal just for the great ambiance, but the food was truly excellent. We went for Lao dishes and every single... More

In the excellent Settha Palace hotel, a visit to this charmingly elegant colonial style restaurant is like stepping back in time to an age long gone by. Formal service complements a menu of traditional French or local Laotian dishes, which are well presented, and excellently cooked. Staff are willing and able, but lack management and direction, and seem to be... More

This restaurant is located in the Settha Palace Hotel. It is attractive and air conditioned. We four chose the Laotian menu which had two choices for each of 3 courses. The food was very tasty, could have been a little more spicey. Nice presentation, excellent service. The waiter substituted a dish we preferred instead of the menu choice which was... More
