Definitely a local favorite, Moon the Night is a spot where you will be the only foreigner possibly. The menu is heavy on Lao food standards, and not many international foods other than chicken wings. The number one reason to go here is for the great view and the great drinking culture associated with a tower of delicious Beer Lao.... More

This place serves really nice food. I would suggest you to go around 6-6.30pm to enjoy the sunset at the Mekong River front. It's a 10 min walk along the promenade to the night market.

Went there on a Sunday evening, very quiet, had a couple of singers, which were quite good. Ordered a meal for the 3 of us,I ordered khow pat prawn, there was 3 tiny prawns,which I thought was terrible, my wife ordered fish, well there was 3 which looked like sardines,so over all very very poor.

While watching the boat race on the Mekong river we were sitting on the first floor and served by some incredible friendly and helpful staff. The coffee (3in1) was ok and cheap. The salad we ordered was something people in Europe really have to get used to. I hated the smell and could not even try one bite of the... More

Large open air lodge type bar right on the Mekong River. Open air, quiet street a bit north up River. Drank beer Lao dark (my favorite Asian beer), ate good Lao food (some western dishes available). Good value, great atmosphere.

The food is similar to most restaurants along the Mekong strip- shabu shabu style hot pot, seafood, fruits and lots of beer. But what is nice about the place is that it has high ceiling, airy and open space so you feel the cool breeze from the river. A major plus- good acoustic band! :)

Mainly frequented by wealthy or show off locals but it's worth the trip if only for the food and view,, a bit pricy but a one time experience.
