My husband and I were drawn to this restaurant after I saw a gluten free dessert advertised on their Facebook page. They had a dessert and pastry display case right inside the front door which proudly displayed not just one, but two, gluten free desserts! The dairy made it off-limits for me, but, it still offered a glimmer of hope... More

This was our first visit here and we came away full of delicious food, my guess is that we will be back. Salads are really good, great value and can easily be shared, we also had a local dish which had some wonderful herbs. The French bread is a nice addition, would recommend.

The food was served beautifully and it tasted so good. Highly recommended as well for dessert; such as lemon and coconut tart with coffee :)

By far the most expensive dessert and pastry place in Luang Prabang , cakes are about 5-7 usd per piece and coffee can cost more than a Starbucks in the USA That said , quality is good but there are just as good options elsewhere here.

Three of us had dinner here, chose from the Asian part of the menu. Delicious spring rolls and light green curry with chicken and very good Pad Thai. Service quick and good, lovely building in old part of town with chairs and tables out the front.

Thank QbnSteve
