On the Riverside a bit out the way, its a bit as far up as you can go but worth it for the food and sunset. Best view here, its a bit of a shack open to the elements but good cheap beer and Asian food which is very good. Bar staff friendly and welcoming, gets very busy at night... More

A nice bar with great views over the river Mekong, the staff are great and the guy that owns it is a nice guy. His wife is a chef so I would seriously recommend the food,we had a Sunday roast and it was fantastic. 10 out of 10 for a nice little pub and the people in it.

Brilliant roasts, rotating for Sunday lunch, great view over the river. Easy to find, just head up river from city centre along the river road.

The view over to Thailand is uninterrupted and it is a great place to see the sunset from. The Sunday Roast is great value and always served in healthy amounts.

Frequented by alcoholics, the local NGO's with more free money than they can spend arrive here on their oversise SUV's and spend (donated) money like it's the end of the world, leave intoxicated,, could be a real pearl rather than a dump.

The Highland Bar is on a great spot overlooking the Mekong towards Thailand. The beers were refreshingly cold and they have beer Lao on tap. Food was home made and delicious, lasagne and chilli con carne. The staff friendly and helpful. The owner was gregarious and up for a chat. Perfect night.
