We had the restaurant next door to this recommended but heard the band in here and had to find out what was going on. We were lead straight through to the riverside outside restaurant but could still hear the band which was great. Well looked...More

Great setting on the ping river with great live music. But mostly for expats so it is relatively expensive and there is much better food elsewhere. Good for drinks and music.

No booking necessary when we went (low season) but might be necessary at the weekends?Wonderful selection on the menu - written both in Thai and English; most of the staff have some level of spoken English (esp the school age kids!)

After arriving to the Riverside on the recommendation of a friend and reading the reviews, we quickly realized we were in a touristy restaurant. We arrived around 7 pm and at that time, it felt like we were in a bar, as the patrons were...More

We were there for lunch, it was casual, it was not a busy day when we went. I would think smart casual for evening would be appropriate. It is a very nice restaurant, nice menu, fairly good service, however the food did... More
Cher Jerome et famille, C’est Pascal, manager du Riverside. Tout d’abord je regrette que notre diner croisiere ne vous a pas plu. Puisque vous nous traitez de voleurs je me sens oblige de vous repondre. Nous sommes en business depuis 32 ans et nous avons une tres tres bonne reputation. Au moment de la reservation on vous a explique tres clairement que les enfants en dessous de 5 ans sont gratuits et que les enfants entre 5 et dix ans payent moitie prix pour la croisiere mais peut etre vous avez malentendu. On indique ceci tres clairement sur notre site internet egalement. C’est vrai que une fois le bateau parti, on ne peux plus commander des boissons supplementaires. Ceci est mentione sur chaque table en six langues, entre autre en francais. Si le service a bord n’etait pas bien je m’en excuse et je vais faire mes ajustements que cela ne se produise plus. Toutes les tables a bord recoivent l’addition en meme temps apres le retour du bateau et l’ecoulement de ce proces prend un certain temps. Si ca vous semblait trop long, je m’en excuse. Encore une fois, je regrette que vous n’avez pas pu jouir pleinement de votre croisiere, mais je ne peux pas accepter que vous nous traitez de voleurs. Pascal Manager The Riverside
