Went for dinner on a beautiful moonlit night. We sat of the balcony overlooking the main street and it was very nice. But the tablecloth and runner were showing their age, as was the railing on the balcony. The menu was good and the food reasonable but not outstanding, but at good prices. The wine list was good. Service was... More

We had lunch here and I ordered fish curry. I loved it. I also ordered steamed rice for my son and fresh fruits. They offered apple that costs silly price (which I don't remember), but it is not something you would pay! I was totally disappointed with this!

Most people come to Luang Prabang to enjoy the amazing architectural richness of this city declared a common patrimony of mankind. Therefore, you could hardly pick up a better place but a supremely elegant first floor of the restored French colonial villa - Villa Santi, a hotel and restaurant. Yes, the staff could speak better English, they should be better... More

I was looking for a quiet, cool place to enjoy lunch when I stumbled upon Villa Santi. I was pulled in because they had a Green Chicken curry on the menu, and I have been looking for this since arriving in Lao. It is the small eggplants that are unique to this area, that are particularly tasty in the Green... More

From outside, they advertise they serve a Royal set menu made of local dishes for 35USD for two. Once inside, the waiter said they only had a la carte menu. It was 8pm only. A la carte menu consists of expensive burgers and pizzas. We insisted we wanted to taste local cuisine. The waiter then improvised a menu with a... More

We had dinner in this place, we weren't happy with the food or the service. The location was nice, we had a lovely table in the balcony, overlooking the main street, they had music and dancing, but the food and the service wasn't nice at all. We wouldn't recommend this restaurant, there are a lot of nicer places around the... More

Dining at Villa Santi was an 'absolute delight' - the food was superb (bursting with stunning flavours) and the environment - on the terrace, overlooking the main street in the town, was simply lovely. During dinner we were serenaded by a Vietnamese musician (playing traditional music) and this only favourably added to the atmosphere. I highly recommend a dinner at... More

Both the food quality and the setting are exceptional in Villa Santi restaurant. We were a group of friend and were dining in an ancient furnished dedicated room on the first floor, with local music and dancer.

The restaurant is situated on the main road of Luang Prabang in a beautiful double story building. We sat upstairs on the balcony for dinner. The menu was extensive and everything we ate was delicious. The staff were friendly and the service was excellent. I'd definitely go back.

To celebrate the new year in Luang Prabang we opted for the buffet lunch at the Villa Santi. I have never come across meat so tough in my life. I could not even get my teeth into one tiny piece. The rest of the buffet was also inedible. We refused to pay but although the waiting staff were pleasant the... More
