This is the restaurant we had breakfast at every morning since we were staying at the Riverview. The food was excellent, and you can't beat that view. It was a nice place to stop after touring to have a beer. We ate dinner there the...first night, and we enjoyed it very much. The service was great. Highly recommend.More

Our last night of a relaxing week in Luang Prabang and we chose the Viewpoint Restaurant and we are so glad we did. The location is spectacular overlooking the junction of the two rivers and a bamboo bridge, we came early enough to enjoy the...sunset and the river life below. Staff were professional and friendly and the whole restaurant had a more “upmarket” feel to it compared to others, cloth napkins, comfortable seating with cushions, sparkling glassware etc Started our evening with cocktails and a plate of spring rolls, followed by yellow chicken curry and chicken on bamboo, absolutely delicious. We wandered back to our hotel after a lovely evening at the Viewpoint Restaurant.More

We asked prior to sitting down if they take visa and the staff said yes, did not mention to us that there was a minimum. We ordered a Laos beer and mango and sticky rice. The mango is sticky rice is pretty flavorless, lacking in...coconut flavor or really any flavor. I have had way better even in the USA. When we asked for the bill they said there was a minimum and refused to take our card. At any rate we had to exchange some $ at a much lower rate than we can exchanged outside. View is nice. I stayed at this hotel (Mekong River view) 5 years ago and don’t remember the service being so bad. I think it must have gone downhill in service. We won’t be coming back for sure.More

I'm a running an hotel here and just joined friends for a coffee at my lunch break. The stunning view being one of the best in town. The expresso arrived spilled, on a saucer that didn't fit the cup. No glass of water and it...tasted like a small americano... For the price of 25.000kip, wich is one of the highest price for a coffee in town... A town filled with excellent coffee places in a country that produces excellent beans. Upon trying to explain it to the manager, I had almost no reaction nor excuses or attempt to repair the problem. I'm not the type of person to complain much but my disappointment today here had to be shared.More

I went there on late afternoon for a drink, nice weather and good lighting. The second bamboo bridge so I can see the view above the river too. Good spot for chilling :)
