Isabel and Pierre (who used to have Kongkhao) have opened a new restaurant in Vientiane. Called "La Cage de la Coq" it serves traditional French fare with some Lao twists thrown in and of course they know what they are doing. Lunch time is great...More

I live just around the corner from Kongkhao and go past it most days to and/or from the office. Before Xmas I noticed a new sign and menu outside, written in the French style, along with some construction in the yard. I was headed off...More

I find nothing special about this place yet it's quite popular esp with the local people. It's along the river but the river has been overtaken by construction equipment.

In a residential area one block from the river, the garden setting is cosy, and there is live music some weekend afternoons. But the food is average by Vientiane standards, and the place is therefore somewhat overpriced.More

I have visited this restaurant a number of times at the weekend. The food is excellent with a wide choice accompanied by some good wine. It's never too busy to get a table and is a lovely quiet spot in a very busy city.

Yes, it is a deserted place but simply it is because it is weekday. For me, why not enjoy the good food and the quietness - almost like in a mini forest. People are really funny, when they cannot get a table, they complain it...More
