Didn't know of this place and we were looking for something nice in LP, then stumbled on this one. Cool! Their French fries and chocolate desserts rock, and of course their card with Belgian beers speaks for itself. Loved the atmosphere and food. Good location, nice garden and very friendly staff!

We have spent a couple of days in Luang Prabang and visited this restaurant twice. We ordered spaghetti carbonara and pancake/icecream for dessert. The food here is absolutely delicious! And unlike many restaurants, the portions are big enough so you don't have to order a second dish :-). The restaurant also has famous Belgian dishes such as beef stew (stoofvlees)... More

It's good food and a good atmosphere and a good way to enjoy authentic Belgian and Laos cuisine. Belgian owner, experienced chef runs the place, worth visiting when in Laos. Also after dinner fun.....

Seriously, the place was OK, but why go all the way to Laos to eat middle of the road beef stew. Too hot for this heavy food which is much better anyway in Europe.

Great Belgium beers and accompanying Belgium food at the House! Spent 2 nights at the house, seems to be run a a Flemish Belgian who is as relaxed as the bar/restaurant itself. Had the fries with the mayo and it was very good with some Chimay's. Good staff and service and food is offered for a fair price.
