Fodor's Expert Review L'Elephant Restaurant Français

$$$ Luang Prabang French Fodor's Choice

When you can't face another serving of rice or spicy sauces, it's time to amble over to this corner restaurant, possibly Luang Prabang's finest. The menu is traditional French, with a dash of Lao influence, especially when it comes to the ingredients. Consider, for example, the chevreuil au poivre vert (local venison in a pepper sauce). You can order from à la carte or three-course prix-fixe menus; the several daily specials usually include fish fresh from the Mekong. Seating is available in the bright, airy dining room or on the sidewalk, behind a barrier of plants. If you need relief from the heat, head to the air-conditioned section.
