“World class cocktails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We walked along the Mekong River,in the hot sun to find this place, it really doesn't have view of the river , it barely peeks over the road that runs along the dyke. But being very hot, we ordered the frozen mimosa and a pear apple granita. Both excellent. If you are in the area, worth visit.

“Great cocktails and lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

We were staying in the BRMH next door so made sense to try this restaurant - and we weren't disappointed! One of the best G&T's i've ever had (East & Tonic - had green tea and Lao honey in, yum!) and really good local food. Even though it was busy, had a good atmosphere and not too noisy or crowded.

“Another nice place ruined by riverfront development”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

It's too bad really. Used to be a nice place with great views of the Mekong esp at sunset . Now you can barely see past the cranes and mixers and all kinds of vehicle traffic passing by. No stopping progress, I suppose.

“Great location, decent food, average value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere in this riverside restaurant is delightful. It has an extensive bar selection and good food selection as well. The service was average,the food was average but the cocktails were good. If it is a cool and trendy place to have an outstanding and eclectic bar selection is what you are after, then this is your place. If you're looking for great food and good value you may want to try elsewhere.
