We actually ate in the sister restaurant next door, L'Elephant Vert. Rather disappointing. I ordered a pork chop in a cheese and onion sauce. The chop was tough, and the cheese was not apparent. Service was adequate, but the price was on the high side....More

We dined here twice recently and was very impressed both times. You feel as if you're in a southern French restaurant (Lyon maybe) as the waiters are impeccably dressed and trained and the half the menu is "old-school" French, the other half being Laotian. The...More

I tested the local menu, very tasteful and lots of food. Two persons could enjoy one menu. Very beautiful presentations.

We enjoyed a lovely, low key lunch here. Terrine followed by duck l'orange. Well prepared and presented food in a pleasant, very rustic bistro with polite service. A nice break from local food if you are in the mood for some European fare

This restaurant for me is still one of the best restaurants in Luang Prabang. I particularly like their salads. The atmosphere is sophisticated and open. Even the bathrooms are immaculate (which in Luang Prabang is not always the case!) The restaurant is certainly not inexpensive...More

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.

Go here for the food. And the wine. You will not be disapointed. The cook knows his job, so it's up to you if you would like "French" or "Lao". Both are one of the best I' ve met in Laos. When in Luang Pra...More
