Not only do you get to sit on a beautiful terrace overlooking the river you also get fantastic food. Every time I come to Luang Prabang I just have to come here. The food is the best in town, the wine list is superb and it feels right. Great music, wonderful staff wehat more can you ask for?

My husband and I decided to give The Apsara a try for dinner after walking by and admiring their nice-looking patio overlooking the river -- we were very happy we did! The location was very nice and peaceful. The service was excellent, and the food was delicious. We would certainly recommend this restaurant!

This is a very stylish restaurant in a quiet part of the town, overlooking the river. Great choice of food, served by enthusiastic young staff in a very relaxing atmosphere either on the balcony or on the terrace. Definitely worth visiting for good food and comfortable surroundings.

Our party of four sat at an outside table looking across the road to the river ... a very nice setting! This restaurant provides a much quieter and less busy setting than Tamarind, which is right next door. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and had good personable & fun service. The Chenin Blanc wine we ordered was very... More

We happened upon this restaurant whilst out strolling. Attentive waiter. Fabulous starter. Complimentary Mekong river weed and tamarind and chilli dip nibble. I wouldn't have ordered it but was delicious! Gorgeous mains. Balance of flavours and heat was excellent. Highly recommend.

My in-laws went in the afternoon for drinks and really liked it so we went with them that evening for dinner. The food was the best we had in our 6 days in LP. I'm a vegetarian and two of the people I was with prefer to base their meals around meat, but we all found an appetizer and entre... More

Bel ristornate con tavoli molto grandi. Piatti della tradizione laotiana e prezzi leggermenti più alti della media, ma qualità elevata. Abbiamo provato l'anatra ed il curry di zucca, davvero squisiti. Anche i dolci tutti molto buoni. Consigliato!!! Nice restaurant with very large tables. Dishes of Laotian tradition where the prices are slghtly higher than the average but with high quality... More

Sits on the river Cam Khan, an enviable spot for river watching, that is a delightful lunch stop, and improves immeasurably as the light fades and the lanterns and candles appear. The food echoes the position. Lunch of fishcakes and yellow curry. Yum yum. Dinner (best to reserve a table) of stir fried vegetables, carrot and coconut soup, river weed... More
