Terrific spot for drinks and sunset on the Mekong. Full bar, excellent cocktails and food served by attentive wait staff while gazing at the setting sun over the Mekong River.

We arrived back in Vientiane about lunchtime after 2 weeks near the Vietnam border and local Lao food, so the idea of a full fry up was great, and so was the fry up, the full monty. But some of our group stayed Lao and we returned one night and all went Lao, great food, good service, very clean toilets,... More

Stopped in for a few drinks on our first afternoon in Vientiane. Tried their mojitos and the singapore sling. Affordable and adorable!

The serving staff were being trained the morning we visited, so were hesitant and obviously needed more experience. But the eggs benny were great, freshly squeezed OJ...and pleasant views of the Mekong made it a lovely place to have Sunday brunch....

This restaurant, situated beside the river, has a nice view and very good food. Serving staff were polite but not too sure at times what we wanted, even though we pointed to it on the menu. The menu is quite large with western and Laotian food. Portions are large. Our bill for 4 with a bottle of wine was 51$... More

I stopped on my way back to my hotel. I ordered take away. All the staff members were friendly and warm as I waited for my meal. Bith the inside and outside area are comfortable and charming. I will return when I come back to Vientiane.

We arrived at happy hour and enjoyed the cocktails and beer before having a lovely dinner of cashew chicken and sweet and sour pork. Service was prompt and friendly.We had forgotten our mosquito repellent and they were happy to provide some.
