The House Restaurant, Luang Prabang Laos

The House, the first and only Belgian restaurant in Luang Prabang, Lao PDR, was founded by two Belgian travellers. They had come for a trip through Laos, but when they reached Luang Prabang in 2007, they couldn’t bear to leave! So they founded The House Restaurant in Luang Prabang, a home away from home for other travellers looking for some European comforts in beautiful Luang Prabang, Lao PDR.

The House Restaurant in Luang Prabang is located within Luang Prabang’s Old Town, a protected UNESCO World Heritage City. The house that holds The House Restaurant was built in 1953 and is made of brick, cement, and beautiful local rosewood. It was lovingly restored in 2007 according to UNESCO standards and is one of the protected buildings of this heritage city.

The House Restaurant has become a meeting point for expats because of its setting, its unique beer selection, and of course, its food. Its central location makes it a short, easy walk from The House Restaurant in Luang Prabang to the town’s other shopping and entertainment options.
