Looking at the negative food reviews, and the reaction of the management that "99%" of reviews don't agree with them, I'll have to join the 1% of dissenting voices and risk the manager's ire. The fish and chips was very greasy indeed and the chips were decidedly soggy, like they had been cooked in oil that was too cool. The... More

Thankyou for your review and welcome to the 1% club that you mentioned. We would be delighted to have fresh seafood at our doorstep but maybe you were unaware that this is a landlocked country and therefore there is no seafish swimming by thus we have to use imported frozen fish which the majority of our customers enjoy, 60% being...

We had 3 appetisers they did as a deal & I had the Aussie burger & my girlfriend had the BBQ chicken pizza for our main course! It was delicious! Highly recommend this to anyone! Especially if your craving some good western food.

Nothing is better than a fan, cold beer and watch the world go by. Take a seat on the first floor. We had some sausage to go with the beer. Excellent combination, but other than that we missed some variety in food options on the menu, so we didn't return.

I love a cold beer on a hot day and this is the place to get it after touring around Luang Prabang. Have visited several times since for refreshments and also ate lunch one day. Meals are not cheap by Laos standards but they are huge and tasty - ideal if you are craving for non-Asian food.

After 3 months travelling S.E. Asia the occasional bit of homesickness does seem to strike every now and again. That is not a problem in Luang Prabang ... just go to John's Aussie Bar and Guesthouse. The food is all Australian as taught to the locals by John himself ... a keen Australian cookery buff. If you want something different... More

Have popped in a number of times - even on one occasion walking an hour in the blazing sun past tons of eating and drinking places to get there - why? Simple their beer is the coldest in town. Now I don't mean cool out of the fridge - I mean Aussie cold! Not only does it come cold but... More

I know Luang Prabang is a bit more expensive than the rest of the country but I've just had my most expensive western meal in all of Asia by a long way. Was it justified? Not really. Pros: Fries were great. Lots of toppings on my burger. Cons: The bun was awful, very crumbly and hard. The burger patty itself... More

Thanks for your review. Your main criticism appears to be the advertisement as a "$" restaurant on Trip Advisor. For your information it is not the businesses that apply the "$" rating it is TripAdvisor. Businesses supply their cost range of meals which in our case is up to $10 TripAdvisor then apply the "$" rating so as you can... More

I had lunch here a few days while in Luang Prabang. The chicken wings were good, done in batter the way I prefer, and the spicy chicken pasta was also very tasty. Service was excellent, the staff very attentive even though they had limited English, but better than my 2 words of Lao, so no complaints there. The beer was... More
