Suspend reality and enjoy one of the world’s more incongruous Belgian beer cafés. Around 45 to 50 Belgian beers appear, in remarkably good condition, plus Beerlao. You will find Trappist beers from Rochefort (3), Orval (1), Westmalle (2) and Chimay (3), plus Duvel, Mardesous & Achouffe, Van Honsebrouck and the occasional rare gem – Bieken from Boelens on our visit. This was served alongside some pretty passable Belgian-style pub meals such as Gentse Waterzooi , Vlaams stoofvlees (carbonnade), saucissons met stoemp and a full Laotian menu. The staff speak French and some English. It’s not massively pretty but it is fab and the Tintin murals and mezzanine layout set it off a treat. Higher rating for rarity value.

Very nice place and probably the only one in Laos where they have a good selection of beers, mainly Belgian but I was very much surprised to find Twents Pils there. They serve Belgian and Loas style food. We had Laos style and it was the best Laab Chicken I had in over 3 weeks in the whole of Laos. Friendly staff of whome some speak French and of course some English.
