“Such a unique place!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

My husband and I visited since the trip advisor reviews were so great, and the pictures made it look like a unique place.. We went during the afternoon which is when it's supposed to be more tranquil, and we loved it! The drinks and food were great, and the atmosphere was great as well!

“YOGA & Cocktails”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

I tried the 7:30 Yoga which was a WONDERFUL way to start the day, then came back about 9pm for cocktails, the place totally transforms. Very cool vibe.

“Nice place to hang out with foreigners. ”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

If you're looking for the local Lao vibe that's not the place. Here you'll find a bunch of foreigners hanging out, having some drinks and even playing volleyball.
The location is great next to the river. It might look a bit overpriced for Laos, but they have a huge menu of cocktails.
Just beware of the fact that they close early, at 11pm,but then you can head to a local bar or the also touristic bowling club.

Overall, it's a nice place to spend a few hours with friends or meet other travelers.

Cya!!

“Great food great atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

What i loved about this place was that owner came around and asked us how our meal was. Its these simple things that keep me smiling. He has also trained his staff in the art of good customer service and they were all very attentive and welcoming.

The restaurant was in an off road location but by following the signs its easy enough to get to. The entrance is very well lit and so inviting and cool. In the day you watch the sunrise and in the evening you can watch the sunset. We missed both but it didn't take away from the relaxing atmosphere.

The food was amazing, my friend had an Italian style pasta dish and i had a green curry. For dessert we shared a mango sticky rice and after we lay down in front of the river and looked up at the stars.

Really nice place great staff
