The food was absolutely tasty. Cook by local Chefs. The owner is newly married this year. He's reliable for ordering to fill your hungry belly.

Found this cafe by accident as it is located near my hotel. Good selections of food, Asian & Western. Good portion and price was quite reasonable too. Tiger beer was hard to find at Luang Prabang but found it here, which was nice.

A little walk back from the main tourist street... More

Location of the Cafe is 2 blocks upriver from incorrect (current) location. Cafe has given us very good meals and drinks (cocktails and fruit shakes) - with the exception of the vegetarian spring rolls which had too many herbs.

Went to the location where Mekong Cafe is supposed to be according to the tripadvisor map, but it wasn't there (or anywhere near). Lots of nice riverside restaurants in this location though. Went to a small one named voulez vous. Nice athmosphere, good coffee and food.
