In a sea of average, blah restaurants in Vang Vieng, Arena Restaurant and Bar stands out as one of the best in the area. when I stumbled upon this restaurant, i thought it was gonna be pricey because its airconditioned unlike most of the open air, bed-restaurants in the area. Surprisingly, the price is quite reasonable and the food is amazing. The banana shake is to die for. Beer Lao is very cheap. The servers are attentive and are ready to serve you at a moment's notice, it's located in the center of town so you won;t miss it. And the wi-fi is super fast.

Tried a lot of other places in Vang Vieng where the service and food tended to be shoddy. Came across this place - we were hesitant at first because it looked more expensive than places nearby, however it wasn't. Food was great and very reasonably priced, the owner was awesome and we chilled with him on the rooftop after our meal. Ended up eating there for breakfast and dinner every night till we left!

Stayed in Vang Vieng for a week. First entered the restaurant because it looks clean and classy. Not a bad choice and I ended up going back more than once. The owner is friendly and chatty and food is excellent for its price!

Good breakfasts, decent sized portions, and the soup and baguette are tasty and filling. Avoid the hot chocolate, because it's like river mud.
Good (dry!) environment, very clean. Great!
