“lovely setting”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The food is execellent, lao food with french influences, soo good. Do go for the fishdishes. And do try to get an outside table on the upperfloor terrace because it is not so much street noise. Service is exellent, prices are humane too.

“Excellent food and mood.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

I and my son visited there for dinner. We wanted to eat meat and found to steak house. This restaurant was very good choice to us. I ordered buffalo steak, and my son ordered beef steak from New Zealand. We were satisfied for this restaurant's food. The taste and the quantity was very good. If you want to eat steak in Luang Prabang, recommand this restaurant.

“lovely restaurant with quality food”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We had a delicious meal here at this very popular restaurant. The service was excellent, attentive and professional. The menu is interesting and extensive and European in emphasis. Our food was well cooked and beautifully presented. It is somewhat more expensive than many other restaurants in town, but had a lot to offer a discerning diner.

“Great French/Lao cusine”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had steaks and a couple of great desserts.

Tasted perfect! Romantic setting. Good service.

Though, definitely also the most expensive place in Luang Prabang to eat.

“Bland Lao food and a sick waiter”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We ordered the Lao sampler and were VERY disappointed. They must have chosen the most bland Lao dishes to serve to the western tourists. We live in Thailand and are quite used to northeastern food so we were prepared for something much more tasty. The only sauce they had was a VERY spicy chili paste. We asked for some dipping sauces and they said they don't have them because they really just have European food. They did manage to bring something sort of sweet tasting. I strongly suggest they remove the "Lao Sampler" from their menu. We noticed that our waiter was sneezing and coughing while taking our order. Sure enough, 3 days later I now have the virus that he was spreading around! Please do not have employees who are sick come to work!!!
