Was recommended a number of restaurants in Luang Prabang by our guide. Chose L'Elephant out of these at random. Had the menu of the day two courses with two beers for about $40. Chicken with roast potatoes and Pannacotta with lycees. Delicious. Nice to be able to pay in Thai Baht as we had just arrived from Thailand. Also accepts... More

We came here to celebrate the last night of our holiday, expecting a "special" meal. It was jammed packed with large tour groups, tables very close together and it was so loud I could hardly hear what our waiter was saying. It was a dreadful ambience. I so wished we had got up and left. It had the atmosphere of... More

We dined as part of a group with a choice of set menus. One being Laos style the other being French style. I'm sorry that after 30 days of Asian food we chose the French option. The service was excellent and the food did not disappoint and was delicious.

The wait staff are attentive and personable. Unfortunately the food is just average and overpriced. We had three courses each with two glasses of wine each and a bottle of water and the... More

After several days eating local dishes in Thailand and Luang Prabang I was ready for a good western meal. Thankfully we found this restaurant and it was wonderful. The food was excellent but not inexpensive. Service was impeccable. I had the New Zealand filet.

This landmark restaurant has been in Luang Prabang for almost 40 years, with reputation for fine French cuisine and good selection of fine wines. Pleasant atmosphere with many expats and tourists dining at 8 pm. All tables were taken. Reservations recommended. Four of us dine here with interesting vegan appetizers, grilled lamb, beef chop, and tasty river perch. There were... More
