“Lovely Belle Epoque atmosphère”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Real French cuisine, lovely French wines, a dining room that feels like a set from La Traviata, and a French-Thai maitre d'h -- quite an unexpected find in Luang Prabang. Plus they will gladly shuttle you to and from your hotel in their own car. A real treat.

“Best experience for Lao and French food”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

This beautiful gem is located in a beautiful colonial style the Luang Say Residence hotel. We saw the review on tripadvisor and decided to check it out on 8 March 2012 for dinner.

Highly hospitable staffs and everyone should try the Chef Tasting menu for Lao cuisine. Very sophisticated and delicious. The wine list was extensive.
The french food we had were excellent compatible to 5 stars hotel anywhere in the big city.

That night the head chef was not around and all our amazing food were prepared by a young Lao native sous chef, Chef Pong. Thank you for making the dinner our best meal in Luang Prabang.
