We took a tuk tuk to the Phan Luang pizza restaurant as it's just over the Nam Khan river. It is easily accessible by going across the up-river bamboo bridge, when built, but my wife didn't fancy that. As it was, the tuk tuk ride added to the whole experience. The driver waited for us and took us back into LP afterwards. We chose the Phan Luang pizza place as it was well reported on in the TripAdvisor reports. They were not wrong. It was outstanding, a truly great set of pizzas for me and my wife. The owner, an adventurous Canadian, and his lovely Lao partner were excellent hosts, and the food they cooked up was absolutely superb. We loved our meal here, and we thought PJ (the Canadian) could write a great book as to how he ended up in LP. All in all - being in Luang Prabang on a warm Lao evening not far from the river with great food - we're inclined to rate this as one of the best pizza experiences of our lives. Two tips to note. Bug spray would make sense, as per anywhere at dusk in Laos. And the restaurant does not look too obvious from the outside, as it's at the back - PJ has an English school up front. Is this worth the visit over the river? Absolutely

Great place for great service and excellent pizza. A little off from the regular spots for food but worth the extra few minutes to find.

A great place away from the main tourist area. We visited based on TripAdvisor reviews with high expectations and were not disappointed. Amazing wood fired pizza at a reasonable price. Visited just after opening on a Wednesday so pretty much had the place to ourselves. If you love pizza this place is a must in Luang Prabang.

Great find through TA. A little out of the main tourist area (10 min walk), but well worth it. This place serves great pizza in a charming garden setting. We arrived when it was full so sat at the bar to enjoy a glass of red. We elected to not move when a table became available and eat at the bar, which was nice as watching the wood fired pizza oven was entertaining in a calming kind of way. The prices were reasonable and the quality of the produce was high. 2 pizzas and 2 large glasses of nice wine was just under 200k kip. The service was excellent, I would definitely recommend visiting here if you are a fan of pizza.
