Want to feel like a French envoy visiting Rangoon in 1920? Want to enjoy great food which doesn't only tastes good but also looks great? This is the place to go.

We had a great evening with a surprise finale. Finding the restaurant took the taxi driver some time but arriving at Le Planteur is immediately felt good. We were seated on the top floor in a great atmosphere.

We decided to go for a four course meal and accompanying whines. The food was great and the wines a treat. The personnel is very helpful and no when to be there for you and when to dissolve in the background.

After a very tasty dessert we were tired of the day visiting some of the Yangon highlights. We were brought home as a service of the restaurant in a great British classic finishing the great evening out in style.

All in all a great experience!

Myself and my girlfriend dined out at Le Planteur on our first date after a visit of the Shwedagon Pagoda. It was a truly lovely romantic evening spent at this gorgeous setting eating outside overlooking the Inya lake, It was really fine dining at its best.
Everything about Le Planteur was beautiful from its elegant decoration and setting to its extensive fine wines and delicately presented food. We had the 6 course set menu and the food was absolutely divine, each dish that came out was some of the best food id ever eaten. They had an extensive wine list and cellar too which we snuck a quick peak of underneath the old heritage building.

The service from the staff was highly professional and attentive as you would expect from such a fine dining establishment, but also very warm and friendly, which made for a very relaxed atmosphere, they made us feel very much at home. We enjoyed it so much that we were the last to leave the restaurant, but we never felt rushed by the staff, they just let us enjoy evening and take our time. Made for a truly fantastic romantic evening out in Yangon.

Now finding the place was a little tricky, described as like going on a treasure hunt, but well worth finding. If you ask any of the Taxi drivers they should know where it is.

The price although high for this part of the world, it was well worth it for such great food and service in a beautiful location you can’t fault it, perfect for a special occasion.
A must visit for anyone in Yangon or Myanmar for that matter.

We went for dinner. It is a beautiful restaurant with a lovely view to the lake and a nice big house.
I ordered the wagyu beef with polenta in the side it was excellent. My husband ordered the fish menu; lobster ravioli with truffle and the salmon very good! For dessert the mango and coconut ice cream parfait is very good and the french wine is very good too! The service was excellent the chef Gil very thoughtful, It made our day in yangoon better!
