had lunch on the river view terrace across the way from the main cafe. menu extensive but we chose the chicken laap which was delicious (good size portion) we also had a mixed veg fried rice and 2 large beer lao all for 95k kip. good place just to chill out and watch the ferries and rivercraft go past.

Peched on the side of the Kahn River its a great place to watch the boats moving on the river. The food is ok but not special. Good smoothies.

The Big Tree Cafe was an absolute highlight of a recent photographic tour of Laos; we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, the service was spot on, the atmosphere both peaceful and inspiring and the food was absolutely delicious...if only there was a Big Tree Cafe in every corner of the world!

During our recent trip to Luang Prabang, we had an amazing evening at the Big Tree Cafe which overlooks the Mekong river. The food was amazing with a great choice on the menu and some of the best I tasted on my whole trip to Laos.

The other great thing is the beautiful photographs which decorated the cafe and where taken by one of the owners who is a fantastic photographer and videographer. If you do get the chance also ask about the gallery just down the road where he has more work.

We are extremely well looked after and it was one of the standout times of our trip ... if you are in Luang Prabang then definitely check the Big Tree Cafe out.

Spent a long evening here in November with a group of photographers. Very warmly welcomed by Adri and his wife, both talented photographers whose images adorn the walls. Recommended
