This place has been around for years, still a nice place to enjoy a cold beer and eat some fine food whilst enjoying the views of the Mekong.

A great place to unwind after a day exploring Vientiane. The views over the Mekong river were great, especially at susnet! The night markets right across the road provide another fun option after you finish up your drinks. The bar was a little bit hidden as there was no major sign on the street telling you to head upstairs. This... More

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
