Order the fish platter and all the annoyance from the lao only menu will go away. No waiter spoke English and the menus were different with photos that didn't really match the items next to them... The location was ideal, right on the Mekong. Recommended.

The menu was only in lao, with photos not related in a straightforward way to the items listed (in lao) and even the menus themselves were not all the same. BUT, the location was great right on the Mekong and if you ordered the fish platter you were in for a very positive surprise. 75.000 kip for enough for 3-4... More

We didn't actually eat here, we only stopped by for a couple of drinks, but the service was excellent and the riverside setting was most peaceful with some stunning hand carved wooden decor.

The restaurant area sits on the edge of the lake and that adds ambiance and, of course, photo opportunities. The waitress was friendly and desperate to take a selfie with our daughter! The food was really good value and served reasonably promptly. We had a couple of local dishes and some chips (fries). The chips were well cooked and had... More

This is a little different as this is a boat on the Mekong river, had a meal of fried rice . Just average food maybe sea food is better.

This restaurant which is built on the water is not cheap like the stalls on the bank of the river, but well worth it. The service is excellent and considered one of the better restaurants in town. the restaurant had quite a few customers for lunch and I was the only foreigner. The tables around me were filled with groups... More

My family and I had a nice lunch at this restaurant while visiting Savan. The food was quite good and very reasonably priced. They were extremely understanding with our 8 month old daughter. We watched a thunderstorm roll in while enjoying the views of Thailand from across the Mekong. Might not be the fanciest place, but certainly was the best... More

We enjoyed the food (red curry chicken, stir fried morning glory, stir fried vegies) and the setting by the Mekong. We recommend.
