We ate here several times on our most recent trip to Laos. The view over the Mekong is fantastic and a great place for a sunset drink. The food is good and great prices for what you get.

We went in for a quick snack as we hadn't had breakfast. We really enjoyed our super moist banana cakes and mango with sticky rice. We sat chilled and enjoyed our view all to ourselves. Wish I had time to go eat a meal.

We were there for our first 2 days lunches. The location is nice as it is near the Mekong River and our hotel. However, on our 3rd lunch, we found a strand of hair in the fresh springroll and asked to be changed. It was changed but the unfortunate thing happened, we had diahorrea and vomitting thereafter. Advised order only... More

There were rumours that the Mekong Fish Cafe had closed, so I was happy to see its brand new sign in the distance as I walked along the river. It was the first restaurant I went to on my first trip to Luangprabang. And one I return to every time I visit the town. Service is friendly and professional, much... More

Sitting with the river view was great especially after a long day of walking. We thought it would be great to just have dinner here too. The beef burger was just terrible, worst ever eaten. It's definitely not freshly prepared. Beef green curry - it's really a soup and definitely not gravy! The beef slices are not tasting fresh either.... More

This is a quixotic place. It does not have conventional tables and chairs but rather low coffee tables and rattan armchairs. It's more like a café or a club than a restaurant. The actual physical menu is dreadful. It comes is a dogeared folder containing scuffed and creased plastic pockets. The descriptions are the most basic, the art work is... More

We were so happy to have come across this restaurant... They have a deck overlooking the Mekong with breathtaking views especially at sunset. The green chicken curry was superb and the prices are reasonable.
