C'est is Bon! What more is there to say about this beautiful French restaurant? The service was excellent, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was delightful. From the moment we walked in until the moment we left (after leaving a good tip for the excellent wait staff), we felt like we were in one of the top restaurants anywhere in the world, if not France. We had the set menu with two choices of each course and all three of us had the French Onion Soup, followed by the Duck and finished off with the Tart Tartin. All were magnificent and among the best we have tasted and two of our party have been to France, recently!

Enjoyed a great dinner, after traveling in IndoChina for 2 weeks this was a welcome change! Great ambience, outstanding service, excellent wine list..my driver told me it was the best restaurant in Luang Prabang and I have to agree with him.

Recommended by the hotel. We made the reservation at 8:30pm for five

Shown up on time and we have our table, my first daughter ordered the pumpkin soup as she so hungry. Bread's served only for her, bit odd as 4 of us waiting and no bread and butter just until our foods arrive (20 minutes later as we ordered after my kid)

One of our drink not cam, we have to ask for it, fine we are not in the hurry!

Our Rib-eye New Zealand steak was cooked to perfection.
Quail was over-cooked
My fillet of Perch of the Mekong was good

Dessert: Fondant was sold=out, Creme Caramel so so. I think the heat was high when it's steamed, well taste was good!

Over all, good night-out but nothing remarkable!

Excellent food, excellent multilingual service, clean, not so expensive and warm atmosphere. Try the fried brie with a South African wine.
