Watched the sun go down over the Mekong on our first night in Luang Prabang. Solid Gin & Tonic, fresh spring rolls were good, and make sure you check out the photos on the walls inside the main restaurant. Didn't eat a meal here, though the Korean dishes we saw looked delicious. Would go back again.

Lovely setting opposite the River - service took ages though, but was worth the wait! I ordered fried veg with chicken and rice and it was AMAZING!!

You only realise once you there just how big a tree it is, though as every tree on the road beforehand is also pretty chunky, it's not the most reliable landmark. Anyway, once you are there it's a great setting high above the Mekong.

Food fine without being spectacular. Decent fresh spring rolls; chicken laap okay though not that exciting. Probably a place to pop into for lunch if you're in the area, but hardly a destination in its own right.
