    L'Elephant Brasserie et Salon: Most Hip Restaurant in Luang Prabang

    by Rodan44 Written Jun 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Probably the most chic restaurant in Luang Prabang, serving upscale French/European cuisine in a refined yet casual atmosphere. The food was all top notch and the wait staff were very attentive. Quite expensive for Laos, but a relative bargain versus any comparable place almost anywhere else in the world. Highly recommended!

    anyplace: Fresh fish!

    by niamey00 Updated Jun 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fish fresh from the Mekong is the specialty of many restaurants in Luang Phabang. Be careful of the freshwater shrimp, however. They were served raw where we sampled them. Didn't get sick, but maybe we were lucky!

    Joma: Craving a taste of home?

    by Jyrki Written May 20, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Laos' answer to starbucks! If your missing good coffee, bagels and cream cheese or freshly baked cinnamon buns while backpacking through SE Asia then this is the place for you!

    It's a bit steep but a bagel and cream cheese and a cappucino will still only run you $2 US, which seems (and is) cheap but compared to everywhere else it's a tad pricy.

    Favorite Dish: The bagel and cream cheese was phenomenal, watm and gooey with cream cheese flowing over the sides. I was in Canadian heaven!

    Give the breakfast sandwich a whirl as well, egg, ham, cheese on a bagel...gives McDonald's a run for it's money. Who am I kidding it kicks McD's ass! This tasty morsel sets you back $1.50 US.

    Paradise: Do It Yourself BBQ!

    by Jyrki Written May 19, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Paradise like many other restaurant in Laung Prabang (and Laos in general) offer this interactive BBQ experience. The other food here is good as well but not quite as fun! The restuarant itself is basically a terrace with picnic tables, cool atmosphere and well suited if you have a big group like we did!

    Favorite Dish: Well, the BBQ naturally. You get veggies, noodles, eggs, your choice of pork, beef or chicken (or combo) and broth and go nuts . It reminded me of fonduing back home! The portion is big enough to split with a friend but if you're really ambitious you could tackle a whole one by yourself! At a frugal $2.50 US it's likely the most expensive thing on the menu! Bon appetite!

    Luang Prabang Bakery: Best breakfast

    I am really addicted to sweet food. My heart really melted when I saw an apple pie, brownies in the show-case, and banana pancakes on the menu. Some other pancakes I tried in Laos didn´t taste that good. But these ones where just awesome!

  • Cafe Mano: Good choice outside town centre

    by mke1963 Written Jan 8, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Out side the town centre, near many of the guest houses and hotels, Cafe Mano is a cut above the "Cafe Farangs" in the area.
    Good, friendly service and a very good range of Western, Lao and Thai food.

    The cafe is under the flightpath of arriving aircraft. If the aircraft were any lower, you would need to move the salt and pepper to the other end of the table!

    Favorite Dish: Kids favourite: pizza! Adult's favourite: the special house papaya salad.

    Villa Santi Hotel Restaurant

    by SirRichard Written Sep 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant of the Villa Santi Hotel is a good choice if you want to try high standard lao food.
    The restaurant is in the upper floor of the main building. If you reserve or come early you can choose one of the 6 tables out in the gallery, from where you can see streetlife out there.

    Favorite Dish: Keng Phar (vegetable soup), Phat KinKay (chicken, ginger, coconut milk), Kao Lons mit (fried traditional vegetable), Nuat Sen Lone (steamed vermicelli), Salad Phar Nam (water cress salad)

    Scandinavian Bakery

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I never expected to find an scandinavian bakery in the middle of Laos, but there it was!! In fact, there is another one in Vientiane too...
    This is a great place for breakfast, they have croissants, apple pie, banana pancakes... and real coffee with milx (expresso kind). They also have sandwiches and other western snacks for lunch, but they are not open for dinner.

    Nice terraces with local food

    by SirRichard Written Sep 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Sakkarine Road, just after you pass the Phousi Hill, you will find a piece of street with many nice terraces, souvenir shops and travel agencies.
    I found the restaurant of the photo one of the most convenient, as the food was delicious and the price the lowest one. I can't say the name (there is no sign) but it was in front of the "Scandinavian Bakery", near the massage shop.

    Favorite Dish: Any dish is soooo delicious!!

    Breakfast by the Mekong

    by SirRichard Written Sep 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A nice experience when in LP is to have breakfast by the Mekong River Shore. There are many terraces there (by the boats piers) where you can have a fix breakfast of coffee, croissant, toast, fruit and juice for less than 2 dollars.
    You can see the mighty Mekong river flow and all the long tail boats pass by...

    cafe des arts: the mok.... don't miss the mok

    by call_me_rhia Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    wooden tables on the main road, an extensive menu ranging from baguettes sanwiches to steak and paté, excellent food... café des arts serves just about any speciality from Laos and France. Prices are reasonable (2-4 $) and service typically slow.

    Favorite Dish: the chicken mok... delicious marinated chicken (in I don't know what) cooked in what looked to me like a banana leaf. The besst meal I had in Laos

    Luang Prabang bakery: baguettes & milkshakes

    by call_me_rhia Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    it's one of the 2 or 3 bakeries in Luang Prabang and cater to the tourist crowd, but their baguettes are delicious and the place is a convenient rest stop while you're doing the temple tour or for breakfast. about 2 $

    Favorite Dish: bacon and cheese baguettes are really delicious... and even better are their milkshakes. It takes a while to persuade the staff to prepare a mixed fruits milkshake without ice, but it's worth the effort: it's to die for. Servive is incredibly slow.

    breakfasting away...

    Luang Prabang restaurant: lemongrass heaven

    by call_me_rhia Written Sep 7, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    it's a nice simple restaurant away from the main street scene... quiet and friendly. There's also some cosy roadside table and plenty of Lao specialities on their menus, mostly for under 2 $. Don't be afraid to eat salads or have ice-cubes in your drink: they use treated water for everything.

    Favorite Dish: marinated pork cooked in a sort of batter with lemongrass, really tatsy and delicious. Their milkshakes are also wonderful, and safe to drink. Service, like everywhere in laos, is a bit on the slow side
