Can't see how anyone would think the prices aren't great at this restaurant. Attentive service, good portions, and properly seasoned food. No reason not to try it.

I only good coffee here, but this coffee was pretty good. Friendly staff, free WiFi and comfy seats. But the place is more expensive than the neighbors.

If you like to enjoy a combination of good food, very attentative service with a pleasant view of the Mekong, then this is the place to come to. The meals and snacks are a little bit more expensive than the cheapies but you get what you pay for here. The staff were always friendly and helpful too

All were good. The thai curry was quite enjoyable, and the chicken satay was seasoned and cooked just right. Come find El Mundo on the river, it won't disappoint.
