“Good place for sunset beers”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Stumbled on this place trying to find somewhere to watch the sunset over the Mekong. Cheap ice cold beer and sport on TV. Lots of expats around. We had food which was decent too.

“Super Bar, Super Location........”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Been in Laos now for 4 days and luckily found this excellent bar immediately.

Staff are lovely, the location overlooking the Mekong is great, and all the food I've had here, both Thai and Western has been fabulous.

Nice friendly ex-pats from all over normally to be found at this bar, and two large screens for sporting events.

Will miss the Highland Bar when I go.

“What a great little riverside bar”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a great little basic bar, ideal for sitting and watching the majestic river flow by as you enjoy a nice beer and nice local food in very friendly surroundings.

“Fond memories from this place!”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Really nice riverside bar. Surprisingly quiet as it's set back from the riverside road and nicely elevated (but not so much that you feel that you're on a high deck or something). Beer Lao in abundance and friendly staff.

Perhaps we were uber-hungry but the spring rolls here were outstanding! Some of the best that I've ever had (I think it's because they use a touch of scrambled eggs inside the rolls to add some additional richness to the dish). Great, laid-back place and highly recommended for a place to enjoy the sunset over the Mekong!
