Sorry about SueSwa...we had a heater and it was brilliant. The restaurant was packed with big parties and we had not booked so were lucky to get a table on the terrace. We both felt like eating western food for a change and my husband was not very hungry. I fancied some crispy spring rolls for a first course but... More

We stumbled into this place on our first night in LP, when the restaurant we wanted was fully booked..and how lucky we were. Fabulous food and terrific service. It did spoil us for the rest of our trip though- nothing else quite met it's match.

We were not expecting anything marvellous as it was New Years Eve and the place was packed. Very happy with our meals and the service was excellent.. well done to the management for handling a very difficult night.

Totally disappointed. Went on 2nd Jan 2014. Sat on the balcony overlooking the river. We never actually got the coal heater as the staff were unable to get it going. Food was almost in edible. The duck was so tough I was glad I has a steak knife. The mashed potatoes felt and tasted like they had been cooked a... More

Lovely Christmas lunch with quiet but friendly and efficient service. Nice location on riverside. Some dishes were new to us and we enjoyed the variation from the usual Luang Prabang set tourist menu.

We sat in the restaurant as we had forgotten modi guard and thought we might get bitten if we sat by the river! We were the only ones in the restaurant which was a bit disconcerting but we had great service! The menu was varied and it took us a long time to decide what to eat! My husband chose... More

On a road over looking the river this is an ok place to eat. The pumpkin soup is lovely. I could have sat on the terrace all day watching the world go by. Food is average its the location that gives this place an edge.

Was roaming around and looking for a nice sit-down place to eat. Since I was travelling solo, didn't need to ask anyone else for approvals. Came across this place and checked out the menu. Reasonably priced. Was going to order a T-bone steak but not available. Settled with the filet mignon. Had an awesome view of the river. Planned to... More

Sitting on the characterful veranda watching the evening start is beautiful. The service was good and the main laap fish was excellent. The Coloeur cafe dessert was nice.
