I was looking for a quiet, cool place to enjoy lunch when I stumbled upon Villa Santi. I was pulled in because they had a Green Chicken curry on the menu, and I have been looking for this since arriving in Lao. It is the small eggplants that are unique to this area, that are particularly tasty in the Green... More

From outside, they advertise they serve a Royal set menu made of local dishes for 35USD for two. Once inside, the waiter said they only had a la carte menu. It was 8pm only. A la carte menu consists of expensive burgers and pizzas. We insisted we wanted to taste local cuisine. The waiter then improvised a menu with a... More

We had dinner in this place, we weren't happy with the food or the service. The location was nice, we had a lovely table in the balcony, overlooking the main street, they had music and dancing, but the food and the service wasn't nice at all. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant, there are a lot of nicer places around the... More

Dining at Villa Santi was an 'absolute delight' - the food was superb (bursting with stunning flavours) and the environment - on the terrace, overlooking the main street in the town, was simply lovely. During dinner we were serenaded by a Vietnamese musician (playing traditional music) and this only favourably added to the atmosphere. I highly recommend a dinner at... More

Both the food quality and the setting are exceptional in Villa Santi restaurant. We were a group of friend and were dining in an ancient furnished dedicated room on the first floor, with local music and dancer.

The restaurant is situated on the main road of Luang Prabang in a beautiful double story building. We sat upstairs on the balcony for dinner. The menu was extensive and everything we ate was delicious. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. I'd definitely go back.

To celebrate the new year in Luang Prabang we opted for the buffet lunch at the Villa Santi. I have never come across meat so tough in my life. I could not even get my teeth into one tiny piece. The rest of the buffet was also inedible. We refused to pay but although the waiting staff were pleasant the... More

I couldn't believe they could charge $21 for a buffet, but we decided on it as great balcony views. It had very little choice, and once a dish was finished that was it! I tried kebab, very tough meat, the fish, squid?. Was rubbery. I tried salad bar and whatever Sauce they used rendered it foul. My friends fared no... More

We had lunch at the balcony in the beautiful building. Service and atmosphere is good. But the food is average compare to The Tamarind and Burasari Restaurant at the river front. We had fried fish fillet in red curry. Sauce is tasty, but the portion is French style, not like the average Laos restaurant or Burasari. We also had fried... More

We loved the look of the place and decided to have dinner on the balcony. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the service was excellent. Unfortunately the food was not up to our expectation. The wine was just ok and so was the rest of the menu. The desert was a real disappointment. Considering the cost... Go elsewhere
