The host was very accommodating with a vegetarian and a lactose intolerant diner. We had been having trouble getting lactose free meals and were recommended to this restaurant and we were amazed at the magnificent culinary delights. New Zealand Sav Blanc was also a treat.

I usually don't write negative reviews, but this place was a big dissapointment. OK, the beefstew (stoofschotel) is realy good, and the waiters ar nice, but: - You have to pay seperately for your French fries (16.000 k) and even your mayonaise (8.000 k), while the beefstew isn't cheap on itself (something around 65.000 k). - The desserts are expensive...

Highly praised on TA, we arrived with great anticipations. Despite the great service we good average food. They serve small dishes (we had to order an extra side dish to fill our stomach) and it's not that great. In short average food for a high (lao) price. I would suggest going next door. Cheaper, same quality (Lao Lao).

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.....
