“Cool little chillout bar off the beaten track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were given some discount vouchers for this restaurant following our day trip so decided to try it out. It's a bit off the beaten track so takes a bit of time to find but once there it is a really cool little chillout bar with places to relax everywhere and views over the river.

Service was a bit slow though

“Nice Atmposphere - but the service is horrible”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Went there 3 times, because of the nice relaxed atmosphere and perfect river views.

The service however, pardon my English, sucks!
You have to wait for ever till a waiter shows up - do not expect them to ask you if you would like to order something - you need to make your self heard.
Expect to wait for your order of a drink for 15 -20 minutes - but at least the bill is there 3 minutes later....

“Relax over a meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

A brillant setting withing plants facing the river.
have lunch or dinner and watch the river float by.
Food is more local, good.
They have made use of bomb shells for pot plants etc. A little of Hard Rock cafe feel.

“Utopia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Great place to spend time sharing a few beers and travelling experiences by the Mekong. We went here after our jungle trek and would definitely recommend a visit
