We stopped into Chez Matt about three times. Staff were friendly each time and wines by the glass are decent. Just wish they had a tiny bit more in the way of snacks.

Great place for after dinner drinks in Luang Prabang. The choice of whisky and wine by glass was impressive. The waiters were well trained enough to offer my undecided friends a taste of two vintages before deciding. The building facade was nice enough . However...More
