It won't win prizes for its looks but this bar, a bit outside the main tourist area is worth a visit for its excellent food. Overlooking the Mekong, it offers Laos and Western food; we chose local and it was delicious. The prices were reasonable...More

Dropped in for a drink as we live in Edinburgh. Only thing reminiscent of Scotland was saltires on staff t-shirts. Pretty quiet although nearing sunset. Reasonable prices and river view.

Great bar and restaurant run by a die hard Celtic fan. Good view, food and beer, pleasant staff. A touch away from the touristy part of town, but well worth the very pleasant walk (as long as it's not an Orange Walk :) ) along...More

If you are looking for tasty food both Lao and western food you can't go past the Highland Bar. The staff are friendly and the view over the Mekong is not to be missed oh and the beer is always cold.

The place looks over the Mekong and is rather a walk from the center where most of the bars, restaurants are located. I went there a few times to watch football but be careful if there is Ozzie rugby or normal rugby, forget the football....More

Hi All, A very offensive review. I frequent the bar many times and know many of the customers there. None can be referred to as 'creepy old men', and many are some of the finest people walking the planet. I figure John H. is telling us more about himself than the Highland bar. Obviously something very complicated going on with John H, and his female travelling companions. I am sure they will work it out. Cheers, CC.
