The food is great, the owners are friendly, and the atmosphere is suburb! Two outside patios too choose from and a variety of western food and drinks on their menu, I highly suggest for any traveler passing through Jinghong to visit this great place for a bite to eat and enjoy the ambiance.

A colleague told me about a restaurant called Mekong Cafe, french/chinese restaurant where you can buy really good coffee. I went there and met Gregoire the owner and Koko, the manager. Not only I bought 1 kg... More

I travel taro undo the world for business, and I'm away from home more than 10 months every year. So finding great western style food is rare. But the food, service, selection and the atmosphere at the Mekong is the best I've ever found. Friendly staff and a warm hearted owner will make your dinning experience wonderful.

We had planned to hang out there long enough for our toddler to nap on one of the couches, but the room we picked (the one with no music) suddenly had the music cranked up after we had been there for about an hour with a kid who could not wind down :) Or maybe it was just the time... More

We visited several times during our stay as Mekong was adjacent to our hotel. Meals were available late into the evening a great place to unwind with a beer or wine. The house red by the glass was the best wine we experienced in our 35 days in China. Coco is an outstanding staff member who was always ready to... More

Better late than never! I am not a regular reviewer but couldn't fail to give this gem of a place the mention it deserves. I passed through Jinghong back in later November and called into the Mekong Café in order to plan day trips/guides etc. All the staff (between them representing most if not all of the local ethnic minority...

I frequented this cafe on a number occasions during my visit in Xishuangbanna - breakfast, brunch, dinner and late night drinking. The staff were predominantly professional and friendly - especially the guy from Holland who was helping out Greg (the French owner). Coco, the lady from Dali was a great source of knowledge with excellent English. They kindly provided me... More
