We ate here many times during our stay at the Riverside Boutique Resort in Vang Vieng. The variety and the quality are both great and the price is very reasonable relative to other restaurants in town. The staff is very accomodating. The only issue I found was that service was slow. I am not sure what the issue is, but I found this to be the case all over Laos. In the one instance where we needed them to be fast, they were fast though so it may be just a matter of communication. I'd eat here again. Recommend the mango sticky rice.

We decided spontaneously to eat here and we were not disappointed in contrast with some other restaurants in Town. It's a good choice and a good alternative to other average restaurants in the town of Vang Vieng. If you stay here there's no reason to look further. Go for this delicious restaurant.

We enjoyed this remarkable place when we arrived in Vang Vien and liked it so much we went back for my birthday dinner. We sat outside and enjoyed the romantic view of the river. The food was exceptional. The Fish Laab was very fresh with balanced flavors and herbs, the best I've had so far in Laos. The Smoked Duck Salad was full of flowers and herb, yum! I also had lamb chops, cooked perfectly with a delicious mulberry sauce. The chocolate molten lava cake with coconut ice cream they provided for my birthday was sublime. The wine list had a nice selection and service was perfect. If you're in Vang Vien don't miss the opportunity to have a fabulous dinner here. It may be a little more expensive than the restaurants in town but still very reasonable and worth it!

This place is absolutely recommendable.
We had dinner in a relaxing atmosphere on the first floor facing the beautiful garden and pool.
The service is very friendly and fast.
The 2 types of vegetarian spring rolls as well as the fish in a banana leave and the chicken with ginger onion and peppers were delicious.

We decided to go upscale for our final night in Vang Vieng. We chose to sit outside near the water which was delightful! I had two Beer Lao's, Salmon Tartar (so good), and duck breast salad (even better). And walked out for about $10. A nice treat in an otherwise pretty touristy and meh town. Oh- except for the hot air balloon ride! Just Do it!
