We really liked L'Elephant, in spite of being on the expensive side for Luang Prabang. Very good food, service and atmosphere. Not as quaint or special-feeling as some other local restaurants (filled mostly with foreigners), but very good, overall.

Nice place but overpriced. I had to return my pork dish as meat was very tough. No problem obtaining a replacement choice. I felt that there were too many staff fussing about. Many much better places to eat in this lovely town

We had dinner at L'Elephant once while we stayed in Luang Prabang. A friend recommended it to us and it was well worth listening to her. It has the feeling of a brasserie, there were young couples there but also families with kids, tourists from...More

The food doesn't make you go wow, but it is tasty and presented nicely. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere.
