My wife and I had dinner on Jan 7, 2020. The cuisine is Laotian and French. Mok-pa (steamed fish wrapped in banana leaf) and banana blossom salad were truly outstanding. (Those delicacies go better with rice rather than glutinous rice.) The other items were also...delicious. Passion fruit juice is not to be missed. The service was top-notch. Prices were reasonable.More

La Belle Epoque is a great experience in Luang Prabang, reminiscent of the French Indochine colonial period. A beautiful setting overlooking the gardens of the Luang Say Residence, the service was extremely attentive and food was fantastic. There is a choice of Lao or French...cuisine, and a surprisingly good wine list. They even dropped us back at our hotel after we ate! A real surprise find - highly recommended.More

My wife and I were lucky enough to stay at this incredible hotel for four nights in the middle of January. The rooms are extremely hairy large and clean. We were provided with a beautiful fourposter bed complete with mosquito netting. There are double handbasin...is in a very large bathroom. There was some wonderful had my touch is this little gifts of local craft were left for us each evening on the bed. The hotel has a wonderful wraparound porch where morning breakfast has taken. They offered that a wonderful afternoon tea. The hotel is a French colonial style set in beautiful gardens. And as suggested above is of wonderful retreat for the noisy busy centre of Luanne Prabang. The pool is beautifully crafted and there is a fantastic bar area next to it. It’s a great place to relax on the on today when there’s not too much to do. The staff are extremely friendly and couldn’t do enough to help us enjoy your stay. I thoroughly recommend this luxury hotel. And at the price is it makes the whole Luanne Prabang experience exceptional.More

A visit to ”La Belle Époque ” Resto in the Luang Say Residence is a must before leaving this Unesco world heritage town! This small luxury hotel offers exceptional service! The grounds are inviting & include well tended organic gardens which supply the vegetables for...the varied menu! Highly recommend the Gnocchi with blue cheese & the goat cheese/beet salad! The chef was kind enough to accommodate my request & topped my salad with 2 soft shelled fried crabs 🦀! Bonus points!! Staff ever so attentive & professional! Kudos to the GM, Mr. Francis Fernandes for his exceptional management of this well run establishment! Looking forward to another visit for a Pleasant afternoon tea in the library!!

Mediocre at best... I studied carefully all reviews on TripAdvisor - and got very disappointed with our dinner at this place. Empty restaurant serving very mediocre food. And very expensive... Please do not fall into the same trap that we did - get blinded by...TripAdvisor reviews. Sorry to say - this restaurant are probably good marketer that thrives on getting squeezing good reviews out if there customers. Carbonara for 20 USD that my 12 year old son would cook better. However, no shadow on the service. The staff are really trying there best to provide a good experience. But it is simply not enough. Sorry. We are very frequent travelers with no extraordinary expectations. Better off visiting the many restaurants in the center of Lua Prabang.More
