Description: Come and enjoy relaxing views overlooking the river. We have tropical gardens, river view yoga deck, tiki huts, beach volleyball courts, relaxing thai cushions, sofas, and bar stools. This is a place to come and relax. Enjoy food, drinks, and meet interesting people. Utopia is Zen by Day, Groovy by Night. Every evening we are by far the busiest place in the city. Utopia is a very special and unique place, and our typical customers will come back every day!! Don't wait until your last day to find Utopia.

We went here on a recommendation. It was not worth it. Food was ok, but we didn't enjoy all the people just lounging around, a bunch for tourists acting like tourists - being loud, being demanding of the staff (we witness a grown man lose his cool over not getting a table close to the river on his birthday). Overall - not worth it. This was the only place during our visit where every single customer was a tourist - they cater to visitors and it is not an authentic Lao stop - don't waste your time.

Although the place as a very interesting atmosphere we didn´t enjoyed our stay that much. Maybe it was the loud music bar or the not so Laotian food menu (hamburguers, etc). Not much different from what we can get in our country. What is the point in traveling thousands of miles to another country and go to a place like this? Maybe changing the menu or give a more local feel should be a plus. I don't know. The only thing we know is that we expect more.
