Fodor's Review

This quaint Mekong riverside restaurant in the former royal residence (now a luxury boutique hotel) serves up some excellent food in a charming and serene location. Try the divine Mekong Boat, which is a salad with croutons, bacon, and feta cheese tossed in a vinaigrette and wrapped in a toasted Mekong seaweed (specialty of Luang Prabang) boat. Entrees include duck Shiraz, New Zealand lamb, and Tasmanian salmon (which is served with mushroom risotto and sundried tomato salsa). Lao dishes such as whisky-flavored buffalo steak are also on the menu, and make sure to leave room for dessert. The ebony chip chocolate mousse heated with Bailey's cream is particularly lovely.
