Fine dining is not something I make a habit of when backpacking, but when my girlfriend took me to The Balcony for my birthday I certainly wasn't complaining.
The food is delicious, but more than that, it's different. The Amuse Bouche of creamed quail egg on chocolate cookie crumbs was ingenious and wonderful. The risotto is to die for, and the meat was cooked to perfection.
Also, I received a delicious and extravagant birthday cake thanks to my girlfriend tipping off the waiter. This was before our absolutely stunning dessert, which consisted of creams and chocolates. Needless to say, we left stuffed.
If you're in Luang Prabang, and you're feeling fancy, I recommend you check out The Balcony. Best part is, doesn't matter where you're staying, they'll shuttle you to and from your meal for free.
