Café Chez Boune
The finest interior décor and atmospheric dining venue in Savannakhet. Chez Boune offers pizza with plentiful amounts of cheese, fresh salads with Italian dressing, a wide choice of steaks (beef, lamb, and salmon), bruschetta and more. With a good wine and dessert list (although a bit pricy) it is worth paying a little more.
- Location: Chai Muang Road (across from the Hue-Savannakhet Trading Centre)
Dao Savanh Restaurant
Dao Savanh serves fine French cuisine in Savannakhet featuring a good 'Menu Dejeuner'. The three-course lunch is impressive while a large dinner menu includes what some would term 'decadent dishes' like fresh lobster flambéed in whiskey. The staff members are very attentive and prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.
- Location: Khantabuli Road (near the Catholic Church)
Hoong Thip Garden Restaurant
Operated by a Thai businessman in a hotel of the same name, it is big wooden building with both indoor and outdoor seating. There is a wide choice of Laos, Thai, and Chinese food. Two of the recommended dishes are duck larb and steamed fish cooked with healthy ingredients.
- Location: At the corner where Phetsalat Road meets Udomsin Road.
Laos Paris Restaurant
Just like its name suggests, the restaurant offers wide choices of both Laos and French cuisine. Well prepared French-style snacks are also available, all at reasonable cost.
- Location: Thahae Road (close to the Mekong River)
This restaurant offers great fish and chips, Italian dishes like pizza and pasta and of course local dishes washed down with cold beer Lao. Phatxalin Restaurant plays some cool Western music and has a pool table.
- Location: 0019/1 Ratssavongseuk Street.
A cozy restaurant next door to Xayamoungkhong Hotel. Serving fine soup with healthy greens on the side, the highlight is a traditional beef pho. A variety of decent Laos food is available and the Laos coffee is worth trying.
- Location: Ratsavong Seuk Road (near Xayamoungkhong Hotel)
