You cross the river with a beautifull boat, enjoy drink or local tasty food in nice wood terraces. The staff could be a little bit more friendly, but the place is magic. Nice smoothies after dinner!

Very pleasant restaurant and delicious food. In august we have to take the small boat to cross the Nam khan river. The restaurant is on different levels with booth where you will be seated on cushions in the middle of bamboos. It's really nice.

This place is across the old bridge and first left. Alternatively you can catch a flat boat on the river first turn right at the end of the Main Street. It costs just 10000 kip this way and is an experience in itself. They do a great Lao BBQ with everything you would expect and the the setting is stunning... More

Walk across the bamboo bridge and check this place out. Its set in amongst the forest and there are a series of platforms to dine at. The menu is varied and we loved the smoothies and desserts. This place is good at any time of the day

Either walk across the bamboo bridge when it is up or collect their regular boat service from the peninsula side of the Nam Kahn river. Tropical garden location, good mixed menu, happy hour and choice of more intimate seating if required.

We had three families here for dinner and it was a wonderful evening sitting outside, lounging in private eating areas. Good food and great location. Please note that it's on the other side of the river and thus if the bamboo bridge is washed out during the summer the. You have to take a tuk tuk to get here as... More

Great jungle decor, comfortable seating and nice grill experience. Some people complain about the prices - I wouldn't call a meal of meat, soup and vegetables that feeds two and costs 80.000 kip (USD 10) expensive! Especially in Luang Prabang. The vegetables were fresh and the meat cut in a perfect way. Prices of drinks are standard.

This was the most wonderful dinner we had in Southeast Asia. The boat ride there began the feeling of being transported, and the space is a magical series of huts in a bamboo forest. One of our party exclaimed "far out!" We had the fondue, which we cooked at the table with great delight. The curry was also very nice.

We stumbled onto this place after doing a wood carving course with Lon next door. This seriously feels like a little secret world in the jungle (though of course it isn't). Excellent quality food and very fast service, but the prices are pretty steep compared to many other LPB restaurants... but then you have the benefit of kicking back on... More

Dyen Sabai offers Lao typical food. From November to August, we offer breakfast. We also have a nice selection of desert (foreigner sweet.. sorry the Laotians don't eat that much sweet!!) We also, have happy hour from noon to 7 pm, 2 cocktails for the price of one, on selected cocktails. You can reach us with a bamboo bridge (in dry season) (there is a fee for the bamboo bridge of 5,000 kips from 8 am to 8 pm, after this the bamboo bridge is free). We also do free boat from noon to closing when the bamboo bridge is not there (rainy season only)
