We had a nice meal here for lunch and they serve both local and western meals. It was quiet and the service was good. It was a nice place to relax between sight seeing.

Despite the freezing evening (temperatures dropped to only 7⁰C the night we went), all the doors and windows were wide open and so it was perishing. Like us, all the other diners wore jumpers and anoraks - so don’t forget to do the same if...you’re travelling here in winter. We ordered a local beer and a glass of red wine along with a coconut sauce containing chicken and vegetables, and stir-fried vegetables with cashew nuts, plus bowls of rice. The quantities were just perfect and we polished the lot off without feeling stuffed. However, by the time we finished just after 8:00, the place was deserted.More

Our guide took us here for lunch as part of our tour. The service was lovely, they had set a table for us inside, but it was so lovely outside we decided to sit outside which was not an issue. We gave our order, and...it was the usual wait for your meal. The other two ordered something what I considered safe but I ordered the fish steamed in banana leaves. The meals came out one at a time, but not long between them. I looked at mine and thought what had I ordered, but made a start and it was lovely. The salad could have been a bit better, but have found through our travels that this is usually how salads are made here. The other two ate theirs with no issues, which included our fussy teenager daughter. As it was included in our tour, I can’t make a remake on the prices.More

This restaurant was next door to villa Santi and was set slightly back from the road. The atmosphere was perfect and peaceful. The set up was great and you could see the chefs at work meaning the food was extremely fresh and very well produced....The veggie yellow curry soup was to die for and is certainly the best I have ever tasted. The wine list was extensive with plenty of choice for those connoisseurs out there. Reasonably priced and just a lovely place to spend the evening chilling out.More

On a recent trip back in Luang Prabang one night we decided to try this restaurant as our favorite places were full and we had no reservation. The food is average nothing special and the service is slow and made many mistakes with our order...the only good thing I can say about this place is that the location is good at the main street and its nicely appointed but food and service needs working on to survive in Luang Prabang were there is so much competition.More

Me and my wife ate here twice. The place looks nice and fancy but we later figured its only a nice wrapping. First time we ordered spaghetti. It was actually good. I dared to ask the waiter for some parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top...the...waiter had no idea even what it means so he went to ask the cheff. No result there also. Later we found out it even shows in one of the dishes in the menu but the waiters understand little about anything in the menu. I also ordered a glass of the house wine. The waiter again couldnt name the brand or where its comming from. I was not suprised when i got the cheapest tastless wine. When i looked again on their wine shelve i saw that all the bottles were actually empty, they were there just because They look nice. To make things short this whole place is a show off. And dont even get me started on the pizza or tomato soup....More

We ate here twice. The first time we were with a group of friends, the food was great (Laos food) and service was so so. The second time we had a pizza - it was tasty, but the service was dreadful. The waiter didn't want...to be there. He couldn't be bothered giving us a plate each to share the pizza - had to ask. We thought he might have also given us cuttlery, but he didn't show up, so took it from a near by empty table. Won't bother again - there are a million great restaurants here - try another.More

My husband & I went to this restaurant for Pizza in our second day in Luang Prabang . First of all, the Waiter can't understand English well , secondly the waiters has messed up the order priority, we waited almost 50mints for one pizza. Last...thing is the pizza was tasteless, we can see the lady chef cooked it by oven toaster from over dinning table .... They may have other better options rather than pizza (?!?!?) but the experience that we had was a little disappointing.More

This is a lovely little restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of the night markets. A great menu choice and top quality meals, it's not the cheapest in town but it's perfect for a nice night out. It has a lovely reading room with...a selection of books and papers, enjoy great food while relaxing with a book over lunch.More

With so many restaurants in Luang Prabang it's hard to make a call on just which ones will be good and which ones will be just so-so. We recommend a visit to Bistro Biblio as a really top night out. Located towards the river end...of the main street, away from the night market end of things, it offers up some pretty good local and international fare, from the classic French steak and chips to a beautiful fresh grilled Lao fish, and a pretty impressive wine list as well. My wife and I celebrated her birthday there in October 2012, I had dropped in earlier to arrange a surprise cake for her and the staff were so eager to help they tried to give it to her as soon as we arrived, not so much a surprise after that, but great fun and wonderful staff, do give it a go.More
