Great place, with an amazing view. The village is so nice, and real. This is the right spot to start the visit. Great breakfast and lunch. Very nice host. We've been told the restaurant has just been reopened after almost 3 years for Covid and...no tourism at all, but the spirit is still high and you'll be definitely treated right!More

Food was good and came out quickly. The restaurant area has an excellent riverside setting with lantern lighting and excellent music. The seating was not very comfortable for dining., unfortunate as it looks terrific as you walk in.... Cocktails were very good.

This is a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view on the river and mountains. I'd say the best view from a restaurant in town. The Suzi and french fries were very good. The chicken with gravy sauce was eatable but not tasty....Prices are average. Clean and Western toilets and even WiFi available.More

Visited Riverside twice during my stay. Amazing place with stunning view. Staff are really friendly and accommodating. Happy hour 4-9pm with amazing cocktails. Fabulous chill out music you could stay here forever!

Walking in through a lovely garden to this riverside restaurant, gave us a bit of a Caribbean feel with the music etc, then of course you view the beautiful Nam Ou and the jungle all around. Super comfortable bamboo cushioned couches right over the river....It’s the perfect place for viewing the sunset. The bonus is the staff are friendly, the food good and the cocktails great. Make sure you have at least one meal or a drink here when you come to this little slice of Laos heaven.More

Great cocktails (2 for 1 until 9pm) and really good food options. The atmosphere is also nice and you get a great view of the river.

Been coming here for years for a good meal, americano and wifi to get some work done. Comfortable seating, beautiful view, and great service from Tongpan. My favorite spot in Muang Ngoi!

With a stunning view of the mountains and the Nam Ou below from their deck and a happy hour from 4-9 that offers 2 for 1 on all drinks, it can’t be beat. The cocktail list is extensive as well as the food offerings. Serves...breakfast, lunch and dinner with Lao, Western, Indian, and veggie option. Service is quick when someone is paying attention, but it is off season, town is dead, not really busy anywhere.More
