This restaurant has an amazing view of the Mekong river, and it was nice to watch the sunset while having dinner. Food was good (albeit service was a bit slow), especially the tomyum which was really spicy and flavourful and there was also a live...More

There are better spots than this one. Service is ok. Cocktails are good. Food nothing special. Amazing view. Pets not accepted.

It's a bit of a search, but well worth the trip. Some lovely food. To Lao standards, not cheap, but excellent for a nice night out. Nice band that brings atmosphere. Adored the river bank view.

Very good view of the mekong. Unpaved road between the mekong bank and the restaurant. Very well done at night with lamps in the trees. Excellent service as well. We didn't try the food, little pricey, but worth it for the view.

I am for the most part a huge fan of Kong View. Have been to the restaurant many times over the last 2 years. Was excited to return after being back in the USA for the past 6 months. My goodness, I just can figure...More

The Kong View is tucked away from the main road sitting on the edge of the Mekong. It is an ideal place to go to see the sunset over the river while grabbing some beer. Dinner is good, but not necessarily outstanding.
