This little cafe has a wonderful menu and ambiance. We both had the feta salad and it was FANTASTIC!!! Fresh, delicious, well presented- excellent! The dishes served to neighboring tables also looked very tempting. We had coffee and desserts, and they can really make an excellent French pastry. Will definitely be going back to this cafe again and again! Staff... More

Amazing service, food and coffee makes this the best spot for breakfast in Luang Prabang. We got fed up of the very slow service at our hotel Amantaka along with staff not being able to speak English and came out to this cafe twice to enjoy breakfast. You can have western style breakfast eggs, bacon, ham or French baguette, croissants,... More

The Thai community said that this was a must if you're in Luang Prabang, especially for pizza. So we had to visit. The menu was extensive. It's good to have a wide variety of dishes, especially when travelling in a group. We ordered a feta cheese salad and pizza. they were both delivered in a reasonable amount of time. The... More

Would absolutely recommend this restaurant. The staff are kind and courteous, the restaurant is lovely and the food is outstanding. We ordered a vegetable pizza and on it was homemade tomato sauce, asparagus, carrot, mushroom, spinach & green beans. It was light and fresh and you could clearly taste every delicious ingredient (which is unfortunately often not the case with... More

Le Café Ban Vat Sene is located in the main street in LP across from the Primary School and a few blocks down from the Royal Palace. It was a hot night and we had just arrived in Luang Prabang (for the 5th time) and were looking for an air-conditioned place to eat. Downstairs just has fans but if you... More

We made several trips here during our 4 night stay in Luang Prabang, as we found this place to have the best selection of tasty fruit tarts. Lovely spot on the street where you can people watch.

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.
