Adorable restaurant! The waitstaff is very friendly. The food did not come out all at once, which was a bit of an issue for the 5 of us. I ordered the ribs, which took quite a bit longer than the rest of the meals to be delivered. The ribs, however, were the best I've ever had - the meat was falling off the bone and was seasoned perfectly. Highly recommend.

For Laos food, there is great choice to try out local dishes, all very well presented and in such a beautiful setting. Prices would be considered "fine dining" for Laos, but no more than £20 each for starters, main & drink.

After many dinners at Manda de Laos, came the moment for a meal at lunch time.
Wow ! it was so nice !
Very quiet place, and delightful surroundings.
The alcohol free cocktails are refreshing and delicious.
The banana flower salad, crispy spring rolls, and fish salad are perfect at lunch time.
Very friendly and efficient staff.

We had breakfast here (included with our room rate at Maison Dalabua) which was nice. I ordered a latte which was extra and assumed, based on the exorbitant price, that it would be reasonable. It was the most expensive and worst I have had in 5 weeks travelling through SE Asia. I politely tried to send it back and not pay but was told it is 'our style' of latte.

Sabaidee Miss Kate,

We are so sorry you did not like the Cafe Latte we served you.
This happened a few weeks back and we now have finally received a brand new Coffee machine

Our Latte is now good and we invite you to taste it during your next visit

I can only repeat what other reviewers had said.
The setting is amazing and makes for a very romantic and relaxing evening - prebook for the best tables.
We selected the 400,000 kip tasting menu. It was expensive for Laos but the subtle flavours meant that we had an amazing dinner.
We would also mention the service from the staff, which not for the first time in Luang Prabang was exeptional
