I wanted a dinner at the Mekong Riverside and my friend drove me to the Smile Dee Restaurant one evening. After parking the car in front of the restaurant, we had a choice whether to dine inside the restaurant or outdoor, we chose the al fresco style as the evening temperature was cool at about 22 degrees C with 50%...

We enjoyed the location of this guesthouse which is on the banks of the Mekong, a short distance from downtown Vientiane and the Night Market. The gardens surrounding the property are beautiful. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the owners and staff were welcoming and very helpful. Coffee is provided for guests and it was a great way to... More

We stayed here by chance as they are now offering a couple of rooms. We ate here ages ago and it was poor but now under its new owners it has been transformed !! The new chef produces an array of superb Lao, Thai, & French fusion cuisine and together with some Prosecco we enjoyed a memorable meal. Rattana and... More

Visited twice for dinner while in Vientiane. The new managers have included specialty French dishes alongside traditional Lao food. I was impressed with service and the quality of the food. Delicious. Couldn't get a better setting watching as night draws in over the Mekong. Beautiful.

This bar/restaurant is well worth a visit. Last time I was here (18 months ago) this bit of the Fa Ngoum road was a dirt track, but now it's a normal road and the whole area is a very attractive alternative to eating and drinking right in the middle of Vientiane. There are three areas to eat and drink -... More

Have walked past many times during the last year in the evening and noted it was usually busy, but had not visited until last night. What a pleasant surprise, we sat out side on the upper deck overlooking the river, just high enough to see over the street vendors on the river side who have recently set up there. As... More

We went here a few times for lunch and dinner during our holiday and found it very relaxing. The food was well cooked, tasty and service was friendly. We thought the portion sizes were actually okay. Loved their freshly squeezed fruit juices, worth the wait. I think they've got fierce competition from neighbouring hotel restaurants playing live music but they... More

We went here for drinks and food in July after having passed it several times. Some effort has gone into the building and decor, and it is along the same lines as the old Mekong Deck that got bullldozed in 2010. It quickly filled up with wealthier Lao, pulling up in the usual luxury 4WDs, all the girls glued to... More
