Description: The Belle Rive Terrace is located opposite The Belle Rive Hotel, above the river shore. Tamarind trees and umbrellas cover it from sun and rain. Overlooking the shore of the Mekong River, with a beautiful view of the nearby mountains, it is a peaceful place during the day, and a romantic place in the evening. When the sun sets over the Mekong mountains, The Belle Rive Terrace is the best place in town to enjoy the scenery with a refreshing and classic sundowner.

3 months before my 65th birthday I surveyed several places in LPQ to arrange for a dinner party. From the moment I met the GM at Belle Rive Terrace I felt that he could make something special for this occasion. On the 23rd Feb 2018, my 30 european guests and I arrived at the restaurant at around 17'30 and our Dream started. Everything was prepared with great care, the place spot clean, the service staff courteous, helpful and efficient. Specially printed menu cards "Happy 65 Gilbert " were on the tables. Fresh spring rolls, chicken lemongrass skewers and locally flavored pumpkin soup as starter. Then we had Panang curry with pork, steamed fish in banana leaves and salad Luang Prabang, very nicely served on a wooden plate. We finished with banana and pineapple soup and Passion fruit tarte for dessert. Everything was excellent and above all my expectations. I live in Thailand and travel around Asia since 1991. I would highly recommand The Belle Rive Terrace to anyone looking for a *Magic Place* for a tête à tête romantic dinner or a party under the coconuts trees overlooking the Mekong. Go before sunset, you will remember it all your life.

The terrace section of this hotel’s eatery is one of the most atmospheric, impressive settings in which I have eaten and would probably warrant 5* on its own: overlooking the Mekong, diners can see the hills opposite and beyond, all framed by palm trees. Fortunately, the food does not disappoint either. My gazpacho soup was lovely to start and the Thai green curry for main was absolutely delicious, hard to think how it could have been improved. A spellbinding place to eat!

Chose somewhere special for my last evening in Laos & The Belle Rive ticked all the boxes! Arrived early, 17.30 to watch the sunset over the Mekong during Happy Hour (16.00-18.00). One of the few Happy Hour venues where you can just buy a decent glass of wine at a reduced price (30000K plus peanuts & garlic bread!) instead of 'buy a cocktail & get one free!!!' Stayed for a delicious dinner at a very reasonable price & a lovely atmosphere. Surprised it wasn't more busy as it is a wonderful place. Staff were helpful & friendly. Thank you.

I just missed Happy Hour here but had a delightful meal outdoors overlooking the Mekong. I had the tasting "sundried" set and it was all delicious. Attentive service and a great banana cake recommended by the staff-a winner!
