I had breakfast here and the food was really quite good. The service is basic and they pretend they understand you when they clearly don't (as I asked for no meat and she said ok but I got ham and bacon with my eggs). The...More

Same as the hotel unfriendly lazy staff and owner food overpriced but very average. Even the view is obstructed. There are better places in town.

You can get a nice view of the river form there. But do not expect a good service. Everybody hanging on their phones with long face waiting for you to finish so they can clean . Nothing special about the food. Go to Terrasse (great!)...More

The restaurant is on a huge terrace overlooking the river which makes for a nice view. However, there are so few tables and they are so spread out that the service is challenging and the place doesn't have much atmosphere. On the other hand if...More

You are not spoiled for choice in Huay Xai, so this is adequate, though I suspect just as good could be had for less in a Guesthouse. Very average bathroom in 210, better in the next room i had. Simple breakfast included which was fine.
