We got the restaurant recommendations from a friend who travelled with us and went hunting for Makphet. They have shifted their location but conscious efforts on direction signage can be spotted. If all fail, just ask the locals. The food was great and drinks are really cheap, especially during happy hour where they extended 50% off. We ordered green mango salad (recommended), Lao Whisky marinated beef fillet, crispy rice cake with tofu and vegetables (recommended) and pork fillet with mushrrom and cashew nuts. All were good except that the beef was too hard. You have a choice of steamed rice or sticky rice to go along. For beverages, we ordered beer lao (light and good), sticky rice whisky shot with sundried beef, Frozen hibiscus cocktail and frozen mango cocktail. Go for the frozen cocktails, they are good. The whisky shot was really strong, try it only if you like strong alcohol. Their cocktails are refreshing and dishes were palatable. Only downside is that the restaurant is really warm, though they have a lot of fans. Go for alfresco seating if possible.

This is the 2nd time I've seen the trip advisor #1 restaurants that are teaching places. Strange but must be the travelers benevolent feeling for such spots.We went only for a drink and ran into friends so that led to dinner. Happy hour is half off from 4-7. The bruschetta is good but not enough French bread to go with it.Dinner is also nice - we ate traditional Lao fish which is with cashew and peppers, a noodle dish, and a soup. All tasty and services are great.I do like the staff and their friendly demeanor. Prices are fair. Atmosphere is warm both inside and outside. Bummer that they ran out of wine but hey it's development.

Great traditional Laos food in a wonderful setting outside. Good place to bring a visitor to Laos for their first taste of Laos food with a bit of a euro twist..
