Despite first appearances Cafe Toui, has arguably the best in Luang Prabang, at an excellent price.
All meals are very good and the chef/owner Mr Toui, very lovely.
Luang Prabang Sausage Stew pork sausage with pumpkin and coconut milk
45,000 kip ($AUD 6.60) This is particularly good!
Souisi Pa – Mekong fish cooked in coconut and red chilli sauce with basil 40,000 kip ($AUD 5.80)

Cocktails $AUD 5-6, but 2 for 1 from 3-6pm (but these are not as good as the meals.)
Cucumber and Coriander Margarita $AUD 5 approx (not so great)
Classic Negroni $7.50 AUS Approx
Lao Basil and Lemongrass Mohito (not so great)
Blue Lao-Hawaiian (the best but need to add extra sweetness)
A bit tricky to find, turn towards the Mekong River at Sisavang Vatana Road and look for the Lao Airlines office (next door), the temple (next door)and the French Institute (across the road).
