Viewpoint Restaurant

Opening Hours: 7 am - 10 pm

Our Viewpoint Restaurant offers you a fantastic view ​and excellent Lao food. Here it is easy to eat a long breakfast quietly and peacefully, and then in the evening your dinner with a cozy atmosphere and palm trees as your roof. Please read our guests opinions on Tripadvisor or rate your visit!

​At the Viewpoint Restaurant our main focus is on traditional Lao cuisine. Although we do offer a few western style dishes, we feel that as we are Lao, ​we should make it our main objective to create the best and most delicious local cuisine. Not only do we know these dishes best, but this is what many of our guests came to Laos for: to sample the local cuisine, flavors and culture. Please check out our Menu!

Sit back, relax and soak up the atmosphere of pure tranquility. Enjoy the​ fantastic view all the way across the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Watch the local fishermen at work and the river cruise boats sail past. ​There is no better spot in town to truly enjoy the scenic beauty of Luang Prabang, ​while enjoying a delicious meal or​ a refreshing beverage. ​Book a table now!

For hotel guests, breakfast is included and ​is served​ from 7am-10 am. ​Choose from a generous breakfast buffet or à la carte, Lao and Western style. The buffet includes coffee, tea, fresh bread and croissants, muesli, eggs your style, fresh fruit and more.

​Viewpoint Garden

Visit our beautiful garden situated right next to our Viewpoint Restaurant. Enjoy exotic trees and flowers whilst you sit and take in the stunning scenery or go on a romantic stroll with your loved ones.

When we first started the hotel and restaurant, this piece of land was nothing more than a plain area of uncared for land and shrubs. Despite not actually owning this piece of land, Mr Urban took care of it. ​He worked with the local authorities to develop and maintain this area into something truly beautiful​.

We now use this area for our wine tasting evenings. They​ are held once or twice a week, ​and all our guests ​are invited to enjoy a glass of wine or two. This is a good opportunity​ to get to know the other hotel residents and the staff.

The garden is also open to the public and is a very popular spot for tourists. Everybody loves to visit ​the park for its​ natural beauty and ​the fantastic view across the meeting point of the two rivers, the Mekong and the Nam Khan. Also, our Sunset and Afternoon Cruises start from the pier down the stairs from the garden. 



​« We came here for a cocktail and an early light dinner. I had the best Mojito so far in Asia here. We only ordered soup but they were so excellent and a meal in themselves actually. We had two different ones and we both loved them. The staff was very attentive. The view is the best dining view in Luang Prabang. Right at the confluence of the two rivers. Even if you only come here for coffee it is worth it. »
