“super charming little bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

We loved this place. The owner was super friendly, and he has adorable daughters that were entertaining us with their magic tricks. Probably the best music we heard in Laos, and the atmosphere is great - not what we were expecting in this little border town. The bar itself is very small, and you have to trek through part of the owner's house to get to the bathroom, but I think that just adds to the experience. Try the flavored Lao whiskey - delicious (but somewhat lethal)!

The food here was really good. Right on the street so you can sit and watch the happenings in the street. Quite busy and a good atmosphere.

“Good food, but not 'Very Good'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

Decent place in town. The only bar. Good food, but takes a long while. Not much for the atmosphere.

“Excellent food, great ambiance, lovely staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

This place seems the best eating option in town - we ate there two nights in a row (having given up on ever getting served in Riverview Restaurant) and the food was fresh and delicious. The staff are efficient and very friendly, and the place has a lovely feel about it.
