We ate here twice.
The first time we were with a group of friends, the food was great (Laos food) and service was so so.
The second time we had a pizza - it was tasty, but the service was dreadful. The waiter didn't want to be there.
He couldn't be bothered giving us a plate each to share the pizza - had to ask.
We thought he might have also given us cuttlery, but he didn't show up, so took it from a near by empty table.
Won't bother again - there are a million great restaurants here - try another.

My husband & I went to this restaurant for Pizza in our second day in Luang Prabang . First of all, the Waiter can't understand English well , secondly the waiters has messed up the order priority, we waited almost 50mints for one pizza. Last thing is the pizza was tasteless, we can see the lady chef cooked it by oven toaster from over dinning table .... They may have other better options rather than pizza (?!?!?) but the experience that we had was a little disappointing.

This is a lovely little restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of the night markets. A great menu choice and top quality meals, it's not the cheapest in town but it's perfect for a nice night out. It has a lovely reading room with a selection of books and papers, enjoy great food while relaxing with a book over lunch.

With so many restaurants in Luang Prabang it's hard to make a call on just which ones will be good and which ones will be just so-so.
We recommend a visit to Bistro Biblio as a really top night out. Located towards the river end of the main street, away from the night market end of things, it offers up some pretty good local and international fare, from the classic French steak and chips to a beautiful fresh grilled Lao fish, and a pretty impressive wine list as well.
My wife and I celebrated her birthday there in October 2012, I had dropped in earlier to arrange a surprise cake for her and the staff were so eager to help they tried to give it to her as soon as we arrived, not so much a surprise after that, but great fun and wonderful staff, do give it a go.
