The lattes and teas are killer here. Food is solid and yummy and location makes it an ideal place to pause midday if touring the downtown. Macha Latte = amazing.

The restaurant had a more formal setting than most restaurants we visited. The staff were efficient and helpful. Pleasant location on the corner of a quiet junction by the river. The menu suggested the specialities were stews and casseroles. Most of these were actually curries or soups, rather than our view of stews, so not quite what we'd expected. The... More

We went there for a lunch organised by the travel agent ; we were a bit early and the only table that day. The place is well decorated in a colonial style and is overlooking the river. Food is classic Lao food ; just the pumpkin soup in our set lunch was not impressive. The staff is nice, yet a... More

The restaurant was empty that night, which was deceiving as the food was delicious. You have the usual local choices plus some French and fusion ones, and everything we had was very good. The restaurant itself is also beautiful, colonial-style. The location, although very central and easy to reach, was a bit noisy for us due to the traffic (the... More

This cafe/restaurant has some really yummy foods if you want to try some delicious French cuisine. A good place to go for lunch or dinner. I had Gnocci along with fried eggplant and chicken which was really good. But if you are a desert lover, you have got to try the Antigone. This is like a high end desert you... More

We had a wonderful evening here! Food in Luang Prabang is very good and Lao dish with chicken was so tasteful. My husband took the sushi-plate (real surprise) and the steak (Australian) which was excellent. Irish coffee at the end was perfect.
