L'Elephant LPG

Restaurant L’Elephant Near Wat Nong Sikhounmuang
L’Elephant is a very good french restaurant that has a Lao dishes on the menu that are quite good also. Urban, who is the proprietor of the Mekong Riverview Hotel, insisted that we try the restaurant. We weren’t let down. It has fantastic french food that comes with wonderful fresh french bread.

Inside L’Elephant
The stylish L’Elephant is definitely where it's at for fine french dining in LPG. Run by French expats, it is very french. There is a laid-back, retro-french atmosphere inside the high-ceilinged colonial building. There are daily and weekly specials, and just about everything is good. Tasty french cheeses and wines are also imported and are quite good also, although a bit expensive for Luang Prabang. The wine list could hold its own in a much larger city, and there’s a highly trained staff.

Delicious Lambchops with Pommes Frites
Daily set menus explore the best of what's available in the kitchen. A range of tasty dishes, from coq au vin to Creme Brûlée. They have delicious lamb chops, fish and poultry and a wonderful Lao menu. 

Creme Brûlée
The cavernous interior makes it quite popular and seem very french. One could be in Paris or Lyon. As already mentioned, L’Elephant is quite expensive for Luang Prabang, but more than worth it. Be sure to make a reservation, as with most high quality restaurants in Luang Prabang, it's often fully booked.

Fresh French Bread
L’Elephant is among the best restaurants in Luang Prabang and it is well worth the price (not that much). Service is excellent, the menu is varied, the portions are generous with fantastic french food. The bread is particularly good.

This place is an institution among visitors and residents alike, and if you eat here you will get very good food in charming surroundings. The atmosphere is animated and fun, and the service is excellent.

Highly recommended!
