After ending up in another French restaurant (reviewed separately) when in search of Le Cafe Ban Vat Sene, we persisted the following night and were rewarded for our efforts.
Highly recommended by many travellers (and even other restaurants) the nicely decorated Le Cafe offered a good selection of food, drinks and great service.
It appears that Ban Vat Sene is a small area of Luang Prabang and that the road has two spellings and also changes its name nearby. It is easier to find the primary school and look opposite, or check out the monk's alms collection at 6.30am and watch from in front of the restaurant.
I thoroughly enjoyed the sauteed buffalo and the lemon tart while two French diners held fort over copies of Le Monde in the background.
By whatever means, we recommend that you find it and check it out.
