You need to make an appointment. The food is excellent and well prepared. Wine list is also good. Decor and ambience are nice. For lunch there are often tour groups but dinner is more formal.

We had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. The meals were fairly traditional fare which is served by most restaurants.

On my first trip to Luang Prabang 8 years ago we ate here on the first night, and came back two more times - so I was really looking forward to visiting again on this trip. And it didn't disappoint at all. The food is...More
