My husband and I had a very nice dinner at this restaurant. It is located on the river in a very pleasant environment. It has a great view of the Mekong River. The food was delicious and the service excellent. It is a first class restaurant at very reasonable prices.

Great views of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Quite a classy restaurant too. But despite all this, it was surprisingly inexpensive. Food was very good.

this cafe is training marginalized youth so they can gain employment in the growing tourist industry. The meal we had there was very nice & the youth serving did a marvelous job.

My wife and I dropped off here after quite a long walk around the town of Luang Prabang. Set high above the river bank it is a cool, tranquil spot with super-relaxing views of the Mekong River, a superb place for a respite from the heat of the day, or for a drink at sunset. Everybody there has dropped in... More

The food here is excellent and the views of the Nam Khan joining the Mekong near the bamboo bridge are stunning. A great place for sunset with a Dark Lao beer and some fresh spring rolls. Fabulous!!!!

great location under the nicely illuminated trees with nice touches such as darkness falls, led lights are provided to ease menu . dimer switches on table lamps. The ambiance is well established. Regrettably the food was bland. I had the penang gai chicken, which was fairly tasteless, imperceptible spices and coconut milk flavour, left me wondering what happened to the... More

We were lucky as this was the breakfast venue for our stay at Mekong Riverview Hotel. Owned by Swede Urban, food was very good, but the views were outstanding as you consume your food or that relaxing beer in afternoon

In truth you go for the views and atmosphere. The food is good and slightly pricey however it's a holiday so enjoy! I'm gluten free and had no issues finding lots that I could eat. We took our time and relaxed and were made to feel welcome the whole time.

Great location and the food was very good. Set menu was well balanced and gave a bit of everything. Fish laap was excellent. Slight let down at the end of the meal as they seemed to forget us. We had finished our meal and the table didn't get cleared up and they didn't bring the dessert that was with the... More

Viewpoint cafe offers you a fantastic view added to your breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is easy to eat a long breakfast in silence here and in the dinner at night the place has changed and gives you a cozy place with palm trees as your roof.
