Yes the river view is nice, but the staff are rude, ordering seemed to be an inconvenience, and the food was average at best. Ordered fresh Spring rolls, same price as everywhere else but the portion was half the size (and flavour) of other places...I had on the island. Didn't go back, there are much better places to eat and with nicer staff.More

Just came back from dinner at the phonsavanh restaurant. We chose to eat there because it looked very cozy. The restaurant is above the water. There are regular tables and there is a heightened area where you sit on soft cloths placed on the ground....The food was very good, best we've eaten so far in don khon. (Especially recommend the "fish in chili coconut milk"). Staff is friendly and speak english well enough to properly do their job. Will probably eat there again tomorrow!More

This restaurant was our definite favorite place in Don Khone. It is run by a very kind and friendly family. The meals are very delicious and prices are really good. After visiting this restaurant on the first day of our stay we visited it again...every day for lunch AND dinner :-)More

Run by a friendly family, this basic restaurant is right on the river with good views and serves yummy local dishes (larp, dam mahk hung, fried rice, spring rolls,etc). It's quiet too as they don't play any music. Ate here twice with no problem in...terms of taste. waiting time or service.More

There is not much difference in the menus in Don Khone restaurants. The prices vary a bit, and a few places are above average. Here its ok, nice view, but not exiting food.

We went to this restaurant because the reviews were really good. The sunset view is amazing, that is true, but we had better food at other places in Don Khone.

Very nice spot on this island, direct view to Mekong, nice people, good food, low prices, nice evening atmosphere. We loved the masaman like curry dishes, amongst others. That's the good part. It was pure bad luck when we went for breakfast one time and...my husband got a very bad food poisoning. That's the bad part!More

This place is on the fringe of the developed part of the island, so the only way they can attract customers is by being delicious and cheap - and they are! Highly recommended, well worth the extra few minutes walk. To get there, head north...away from the bridge. When you see the pool tables, you are very close.More

Very friendly family with cheap prices, huge servings, and delicious food all made with lots of love. We wish we had found this place sooner. Also has a killer view for sunset. Their lovely daughter even gave us a free desert of watermelon one night...."Frrrreeee!" She said with a huge smile and bowed head. We loved this place. :)More

We spent 3 weeks in Laos and ate in different places (mostly restaurants), but this charming little place blew us away with its simplicity, suoer fresh ingredients, warm smiles from the lady who is the owner and finally awesomely tasting food. A must!

We went there 5 times for dinner. It was already delicious the first time but it still got better every night. The young cook was very friendly and knew a bit English. Please consider that the food is always freshly prepared and therefore it takes...some time. But its anyway a nice place to relax and to watch the sunset over the Mekong. Highly recommended as well for vegetarians (try the vegetable curry milk soup)More
