There were only 2 people in the place when we got there & they left by the time we ordered. First the good points, the set menu is cheap at £8 for two of the options & £10 -&12 for the other two options. One is steak & squid for £8, prawns & ribs for the rest. They do wine by the carafe which was only £9 for half a litre, the white was really nice & chilled. We both ordered soup, it's was an Asia fusion onion & tasted very nice, came with warm bread & butter & an amuse bouche of purée avocado which was lovely. Unfortunately that's where it ended, the steak was inedible, we were unable to cut it, my partner had to leave virtually all of it, when the waitress asked why, and we stated it was rubbery nothing was done or said about it. To be honest the waitress was lovely but spoke little English, but was attentive & kept our glasses filled. There was also a western French lady behind the till, I'm assuming the owner as this is a French restaurant, she never acknowledged that we were even alive & certainly never asked about the uneaten steak. I ordered the squid which was fine but certainly not melt in the mouth. The fries were good & we ordered more bread which was nice. Desert was fruit & ice cream, the ice cream was dry meaning it had "freezer burn" and it tasted of nothing. I know the price was cheap but I have eaten set menus in Paris for the same price where the rent is extortion & the food has been better, also the day before we ate at Le Signature their set menu was on £14 but Mitchelin quality. If it's hard to get good steak for that price, put the price up or do it in a different style, the French are known for their steak and this was definitely below par. There's much better French options in Vientiane. We only left a £2 tip which having been a waitress is hard for me to do, but the food wasn't worth tipping only the smiley waitress.
