Bomb Crater Bar is owned by a local Vietnamese couple, Tuan and Ngoc, with their Australian partners, Mark and Lesley. They came across this stunning riverside property and developed it in to a simple and rustic riverside bar. It is a great place to stop in for a cold drink or a snack on a cycling foray around the rural areas of Phong Nha, it is a great spot for a swim in the river or just to relax in a hammock or tubing on the river. The huge bamboo provide shade and a rustic asian ambiance.

Really liked this place! Chilled atmosphere, good music. I had the ‘chicken bombs’ and they were delicious. We went once it had gotten dark but going for sunset would have been amazing.

This is the best place in Phong Nha! We spent two days there with our two year old daughter (who spent hours playing in the sand) just enjoying the great food and music. The owners are so nice people and great at speaking English. One...of them (sorry, I’m so bad at names) invites us to come with her to the market and so we did. We had an amazing experience and ended up cooking delicious food together at Bomb crater bar afterwards. You must visit this place if you are in Phong Nha!More

On the side of the road. stop your motorbike and hang in a hammock with a cold beer and relax. We didn't eat here but they do have things like spring rolls and snacks.

Great place to watch the river flow by and enjoy a drink while listening to the bamboo. Great prices and service.

A very different bar...a little out of town but it has the potential to be something special as tourism grows in the Park. It is certainly woth a visit.

Very relaxing little bar right on the river to sit and truly relax and not worry about time or anything you need to do. When it gets hot you can just jump in the river! Hammocks take the relaxing time to a whole new level...and you can easily spend a long time chilling out here. They have wifi and food and very cold beer + amazing views right by the water - what more do you need! 100% recommend this place to anyone.More

It is a nice ride along the river to get there, but it is a neat little place, literally in a bomb crater. Swimming and hammocks for a leisurely afternoon.

Not much to this place but it has a real charm. Chilled vibe with great view of river. Chickens and chicks wandering the grounds only adds to atmosphere.

We grabbed a beer and a tube and watched the sunset. It was amazing being in the river and watching the sunset - a very unique experience.
