Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon Near the Royal Palace
The Blue Lagoon Restaurant clearly stands out of the huge group of dining options in Luang Prabang. It's one of the more expensive places but for a good reason. Very good food and the staff is very friendly and exceptionally well trained. 

Prawn and Fish with Scallops and Rice
Parma Cheese Raviolis
Can see why this restaurant is rated so highly. We had dinner at this restaurant  and ordered the local soup, delicious Prawn/Fish with Scallops and wonderful Parma Cheese Raviolis. The service was very good and bread and butter was brought to the table right away. First we had soup that was served piping hot and was perfect.

The Prawns, Fish plus Scallops with rice and the Ravioli were served next. Excellent and just spicy enough without being over-powering. For dessert we had their fresh mango with mango ice-cream. It was every bit as tasty as it sounds.

We had to have reservations when we arrived for dinner as the Blue Lagoon was completely full when we arrived. We had a lovely outdoor dining table. There are head waiters who speak some English and explain the dishes to you. The chef spent 6 years in Switzerland, so besides some Swiss twists to the menu there is a standard of service and restaurant appearance that is quite good. Food was high quality and the wine list reasonable.

This is among the more expensive restaurants in Luang Prabang but it is well worth it as it’s one of the tops in town. Service is excellent, the menu is varied, the portions are good and the food was superb.

Highly recommended!
