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.

Stunning view and worth coming here for that alone. We didn't eat but the food around us looked delicious and staff were accommodating to vegetarian requirements of the table nearby. Delicious fresh smoothies and you can choose to make them dairy/non and whether they add honey or not.

We stayed at the Mekong Riverview Hotel, so we had breakfast there every day. The breakfast is very good, with great croissants and a small buffet, good lao coffee, and "ready to made" items, including local choices like noodle soup. We also had dinners 3 times here, there is very tasty lao food, and some western dishes (including swedish, as the owner is from Sweden). We had only lao food, for example larb with tofu, or lemongrass stuffed with pork, which were really tasty. The big star of the plae however is the location ! So even if you dont want to eat here, its worth going for a drink, especially at sunset.

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.

Dear blueivory, We can not apologize enough for your bad experience. It was clearly our mistake to hold back the information about the minimum amount of 100'000 LAK for payment with visa card and we can assure you that this was not out of a bad service mentality but solely a really bad combination of circumstances. Also, we are sorry to hear that you found our mango sticky rice flavorless. Usually this is one of the favorite sweets at our Restaurant, so we will for sure talk to the kitchen and let them know your feedback. Again, we apologize for your bad experience and we wish you happy travels, kind regards, Mr. Chansouk Dabouasack (Aoth) Restaurant Manager, Viewpoint Cafe

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.

Hi Charles, Thank you for coming by at our Viewpoint Restaurant with your friends. We are so sorry to hear that your visit was not satisfactory and would like to apologize for this incident. While we work hard to provide the best service, it can still get a bit hectic at lunch time here during peak season and we figure that this might have been the reason for the spilled espresso - we are aware that this does not justify spilling coffee, but as a hotel manager yourself you know how busy these times can be. About the coffee: Please be aware that we offer single and double espresso, which differ in taste. Also, thank you for the feedback about the glass of water; you are right and we will immediately change that. Again, we apologize and we hope to nevertheless welcome you back for a drink or meal in the usual high quality and service in the future. Kind regards, Mr. Chansouk Dabouasack (Aoth) Restaurant Manager, Viewpoint Cafe

We were staying at the hotel and had booked breakfast included, so we ate at Viewpoint Restaurant each morning. The breakfast is nice, with a good selection of items that can can ordered off the menu and additional items available from the buffet. Everything was good, but none was "wow". What is "wow" is the view, overlooking the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. The staff are friendly, attentive, and pleasant.

Ate dinner here three times in our six days in Luang Prabang - entranced by the post-sunset light over the river confluence and the bamboo bridge. Pretty setting, good food, good service. Would have returned another time, but we arrived a little late for food. It’s better to get there earlier!

Dear Richard, thank you so much for writing this review, it means a lot to us! How great to hear that you enjoyed it so much that you returned several times! We could not agree more: The views are fantastic, and especially at sunset hours. And yes: it does make sense to come a bit earlier, or make a reservation ahead. Thanks again and happy travels! Kind regards, Viewpoint Restaurant.

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.

January TripAdvisor reviews were negative so wanted to update. We booked at lunchtime for eve meal as looked lovely. Later put off by TA reviews but more recent Google much better so we went. Superb! Fried spring rolls starter probably best of 4 weeks tour of Indochina. Pad Thai Prawn and Tom Yum Chicken delicious. Service first class. Bamboo bridge sadly gone for 2 years to allow boats through to work on reinforcing river banks, but ferry replaces. Lunchtime great views but eve nice atmosphere too. Menu has mostly Lao food lunchtime and western food eve, but no problem to order off lunch menu for eve, which we did. Looks like restaurant now fully recovered post-covid to former glories, strong recommendation to support them through absence of bamboo bridge.

Sabaidee Stuart, Thank you so much for taking the time to put your experience into words, this means so much to us and it will be helpful for other guests for sure as well! We cannot hide the fact that we've had some bad reviews earlier this year, due to our difficulties in finding and training new staff (which was especially hard after the pandemic), all through a very busy time (chinese new year). Since then we put a lot of effort in setting up the new menu and continuing training everybody so that we can rise again to the standard that we used to have. And apparently we're on a good way, your review is the living proof. So thank you! It is so motivating for our staff to read that their hard work is making a difference. We hope to welcome you back again and in the meantime wish you happy travels, kind regards, Viewpoint Restaurant

During my previous visit to Luang Prabang in 2017, this place was heaven on earth. I recently went back a few and was very disappointed. The view is of course still spectacular, but quality of food and service aren't what they used to be... One time I ordered the spring rolls' , and got them not fried .... a heap of sticky blubber... When I showed my surprise to the waiter he said -all uninterested- that I should have asked for FRIED .... Another time I ordered one cocktail and got charged for a 'jar of cocktail'. Only after checking my bill and complaining it got corrected.... Another time I ordered a green curry with chicken and it got served without rice... Only after complaining they brought (6 min's later) the boiled rice... Which then also got charged separately ... And there were a few other unpleasant little things like this ..... Conclusion : I regret how a wonderful place like this gets scr*wed up by uninterested staff. I'll never go back again.

Mekong Riverview Hotel
Sabaidee Rudy, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this detailed review and we are extremely sorry about your negative experiences in the recent time. As a returning visitor to Luang Prabang, you were for sure aware of the impact that the pandemic has had on our little town. Many skilled workers left Laos to work in Thailand or returned back to their villages. Therefore it has been a challenge to find trained staff. We are lucky that some of our old staff are returning, because they really like this workplace, and additionally we are training new staff. For them it can be overwhelming at times, since the flow of visitors in recent weeks has been increasing - which is good, but also demanding for new staff. We can assure you that we are doing our absolute best to return to the highest standard as soon as possible and we will for sure address the mentioned situations to further train our staff. Thank you and safe travels, Viewpoint Restaurant.

Lovely location right on the water. Staff spent a lot of time sweeping up the constantly falling tamarind leaves. Good food, attentive staff.

Had dinner in this restaurant after visiting the bamboo bridge below. Order 3 items. Papaya salad is very spicy and taste weird. Lao beef steak is very chewy and hard to eat. Sausage is the only one edible. But the Laos coffee is good. The view is very nice. After that, me and my wife get stomach ache and diarea.
