Why Pimenton is special ?

“Pimenton” means “paprika” in Spanish. It is made from ground, dried red chili peppers from the Americas. It is said that Cristopher Columbus brought paprika back to Spain during his second voyage. Pimenton steakhouse finds inspiration in both, the “pimenton”, culinary heritage of Spain with its tapas and the wood-fired grilling traditions of the Americas, especially Argentina where beef occupies a very special place… Showcasing exceptional meats from Canada, Thailand, New- Zealand and Japan, Pimenton also features seasonal and local produce in distinctive preparations. Pimenton harnesses the culinary and hospitality talent of Serge Selbe and Regina Selbe in a friendly and comfortable neighborhood restaurant with an energetic vibe and creative menu designed to appeal to the palate of the very cosmopolitan Vientiane and surrounding countries.


Must try dishes:


Chateaubriand


Tenderloin or ribs


Flamegrilled chicken or chorizo


Empanadas (beef, green olives & raisins)


Calamares and charcuterie of cured meats.

We had a very late dinner here with friends. The food was very nice and as we were famished, we polished it off without hesitation.Note that the paella for 2 is definitely not enough for 2 let alone 4 people! We supplemented it with a number of tapas plates, but gosh I wish we had ordered two or more of the paella because it was seriously scrumptiously good. Probably better than any of the paella we've had in Spain!The service was not so good. What's with bringing one thing to the table at a time, and not clearing stuff from the table. Basic waitering skills were lacking. I would have given this place a 5 if the service was better.I seriously recommend booking. We went very late so it was relatively easy to get a table, but I can imagine that at peak times, walking in and expecting a table is probably going to fail.It's not cheap compared to "local" Lao restaurants, but if you have a hankering for Spanish food, dig deep and enjoy.

I have been here many times for a quick lunch, but recently went for a long dinner and it was excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection, tapas on the side very original, and a nice 07 Rioja to wash it down. It isn't cheap by Vientiane standards (a little over $100 for two), but is reasonable (all steaks are imported, and wine imported by the restaurant - many are not available in Vientiane wine shops). A similar meal would cost a lot more in western capitals.Will definitely go back.
