This place has a picturesque view of the mekong. Awesome place to sit down, have a cold one and watch the mighty Mekong flow by. Also this place shows all popular international sporting fixtures and has a goos pub grub also.

Along the Mekong River a great bar with English and Laos food! Drinks are inexpensive, lots of TV views of sports. Take a trip to enjoy this bar!

Food served is of average quality but price is a bit high. Should improve on quality..chicken lolipop was served burnt. Fried rice was too salty..Good place to drink with friends but avoid eating

It won't win prizes for its looks but this bar, a bit outside the main tourist area is worth a visit for its excellent food. Overlooking the Mekong, it offers Laos and Western food; we chose local and it was delicious. The prices were reasonable...More

Dropped in for a drink as we live in Edinburgh. Only thing reminiscent of Scotland was saltires on staff t-shirts. Pretty quiet although nearing sunset. Reasonable prices and river view.

Great bar and restaurant run by a die hard Celtic fan. Good view, food and beer, pleasant staff. A touch away from the touristy part of town, but well worth the very pleasant walk (as long as it's not an Orange Walk :) ) along...More
