Sat down for a cold beer and to watch the sunset. It was just that, a nice place to unwind after a long day of traveling. Nice view over the river, cold beer for 15000 Kip, good service and western music in the background. Would recommend going there for drinks. (we didn't have food)

Interesting restaurant and bar. We had a few drinks, the service was friendly and swift. You are overlooking the night market and the mighty Mekong. Very nice place to spend an hour after walking along the River.. We didn't stay for dinner. But the place is great

By no means is this place fancy, however if your looking for American music and cold beer this is your place! You can request songs by writing them on a piece of paper and giving them to the "DJ".​ There are a few tables lining the riverside with a good view of the river and night market. It's a good...

Seems one of few places in Vientiane which works till late and where can come to drink and eat and chat with people. At least , apart of night clubs, I not found other than Bor Pen Yang place which crowded and looks like live bar but not empty something... Also I noticed quite many gay visitors. Hope this will...

If you want to see the beautiful sunset before the dinner, you had better come here, particularly in the dry season. You can certainly enjoy the beautiful sunset with drinking beer. The menu that I recommend are the french fried & the pizza.

The food was expensive and the worst I ate in Laos. I ordered the American Burger because I was a bit tired of the local food and the place offers a western environment. The meat I am not even sure it was meat, it was a horrible paste made of fat and it was burnt black. The beer was cold... More

Good appetizers, good food, good beer. Wine, not so much. In addition to the great (3rd floor) view it has a nice atmosphere and good music. Value is, like most restaurants in Vientiane, very good. Our meal and multiple rounds if drinks came to about 28 USD. My only complaint was no elevator.

Awesome view of the sunset over the Mekong while killing a few beers. By few I mean TOWERS! Yeah it's a bit shady with all the working girls and disgusting toilets. However a night of madness needs to start somewhere.
