The restaurants with the most stunning views in Kanchanaburi are:
1. Keeree Mantra & The Village Farm To Cafe
I combined these two restaurants for the purpose of this article, as these two restaurants are part of the same building and have the same panoramic view. Just outside the Kanchanaburi, you can find this beautiful restaurant build around a pond, grass field and melon farm with green mountains in the background. Because these restaurants are located a bit outside of Kanchanaburi, you really have this remote feeling as if you are in the middle of nature. The complex is well-maintained and is a perfect place for lunch.
Keeree Mantra is a restaurant that focuses on Thai food and can be seen as one of the best restaurants in Kanchanaburi. Absolute highlights of the menu are the Fried Tub-Tim Fish with Fresh Vegetable and Spicy Sauce Salad (320 THB), Crispy Catfish Chili Paste Served with Vegetables (185 THB) and their Fried Fish with Thai Herbs (165 THB). More information about Keeree Mantra, such as opening times, location and other users’ opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Keeree Mantra.
In my opinion, the best restaurant with the most stunning view in Kanchanaburi!
The food is amazing here. Highly recommended!
The Village Farm To Cafe is a spacious and trendy cafe that serves mostly international food with a focus on Italian and Japanese influenced dishes. This sounds like a weird combination, but it does make the food they serve very interesting. Highly recommended dishes are the Baby Spare Ribs BBQ Texas (695 THB), Pizza Termite Mushroom (395 THB) and the Japanese Pumpkin Soup (185 THB). Make sure to save some room for desserts with the Tao Pan In The Garden (185 THB), Apple Caramel Crumble Brioche (220 THB) and the Steamed Toast with Melon Custard (150 THB).

The same stunning panoramic view is in the background, but the restaurant has a different setting.
2. Tara Buree
Tara Buree is a lovely local restaurant located in the southern parts of the city next to the river. Because this restaurant is located a bit remotely, you will have this stunning view during sunset. Guests can choose a seat on the floating deck where you have an excellent view of the river Kwai with the mountains in the background. The cleverly placed lightbulbs create a cosy atmosphere as soon as the sun is about to set. I can guarantee you will be impressed with the stunning views of this restaurant. To make it even cosier, every night, there are live performances by local artists.
Magnificent view next to the river with the mountains in the background.
During sunset, it's simply beautiful. Highly recommended to visit this place right after five o'clock.
Tara Buree mainly focuses on traditional Thai dishes, and many foreigners have never heard of these dishes as you won’t easily find them elsewhere. For example, here they serve the traditional version of the red curry, which is not creamy at all but extremely flavorful (and spicy). Don’t worry, classic dishes such as Pad Thai and Tom Yum Going are available here as well, but if you are in an adventurous mood, try one of the following dishes: Stir-Fried Mixed Herb Salad with Self-Wrap Fresh Chinese Leaves (190 THB), Spicy Chinese Kale stem Salad with Shrimp (180 THB), Kanchanaburi Signature Spicy Mushroom Salad (480 THB) and the Crispy Fried Small Fish (190 THB).

Delicious, traditional Thai dishes.
3. Keeree Tara
Keeree Tara is the restaurant with the most stunning view in Kanchanaburi on the Bridge over the River Kwai. This beautifully decorated restaurant is from the same owner as Keeree Mantra, The Village Farm To Cafe, Din Cafe and Loft Restaurant & Bar. The latter two are listed further in this article. The owner has a very specific approach to his restaurants and building a unique atmosphere with stunning views is part of its concept. Keeree Tara almost feels like a theme park, with peaceful music coming out of the garden speakers and decorations such as paper lanterns creating a unique vibe. There is also a floating deck available where guests can eat, however, during lunchtime, the shaded parts of the restaurant are more welcome.
A stunning view on the Bridge over the River Kwai.
Make sure to try at least one of the following food recommendations: Spicy Pomelo Salad (185 THB), Grilled Giant Freshwater Prawns (1,500 THB), Smoked Freshwater fish Chili Paste with Vegetables (150 THB), Deep-Fried Snakehead Fish with Mango Salad (380 THB) and the Dried Green Curry with Chicken (160 THB).

Amazing seafood can be found at Keeree Tara.
4. Blue Rice Restaurant
Blue Rice Restaurant can be seen as one of the best local Thai restaurants in Kanchanaburi and is also listed, like many other restaurants from this article, in our dedicated article about the best restaurants in Kanchanaburi, thanks to its unique twists on traditional Thai dishes with ingredients that they grow themselves. The restaurant has two unique views that are noteworthy to mention. First of all, the restaurant is located on the other side of the river where it’s much more peacefully than what you are used to. The garden of the restaurant faces the river, which gives it a nice panoramic view of the town. Secondly, on the opposite side of the restaurant where the farm is located, you will have a great view of the crops. Every visitor can have a look at their local farm, and the owners are happy to give you a tour.

The view at the local farm where they grow all their ingredients themselves.
Highly recommended dishes are the Miang Kum (135 THB), Yam So O (135 THB) and the Ma La Kor Phad Thai Gai (135 THB). Especially the Pad Thai, which is a version made with papaya strips instead of noodles, is such a delicious treat.

Homegrown ingredients turned into delicious Thai dishes.
5. Din Cafe
Din Cafe is a restaurant that is part of a hotel and the whole building looks like a state-of-the-art villa that can easily be the home of a James Bond villain. Modern architecture is something you hate or love, but the view this restaurant is offering is something you cannot hate. Located just next to the river, you have an excellent view of the river itself as well as the greenery which the river is surrounded with. And as Din Cafe is located remotely, the place is really peaceful.

Din Cafe serves stunning-looking and great tasting international dishes such as Korean Fried Chicken (160 THB), Barbecue Pork Ribs (450 THB) and Penang Sauce with Grilled Salmon (180 THB). But make sure that you at least try one of their phenomenal desserts, such as The Legend Of River Kwai (295 THB) and Chomphu Pantip (220 THB). High tea is also available for only 550 THB which includes ten cakes and one of their signature teas.

Nicely looking and great tasting Thai and International dishes at Din Cafe.
6. Loft Restaurant & Bar
Loft Restaurant & Bar is another restaurant in Kanchanaburi with a stunning view. The restaurant has, similar to Keeree Mantra, a great view on the Bridge over the River Kwai. But the main difference is that Loft Restaurant & Bar is only suitable for the sunset as the doors of this restaurant open at five o’clock in the afternoon. Loft Restaurant & Bar is a trendy place, where people come to eat as well as have a fun night out with friends and live music. If you do want to grab a bite, make sure to try at least one of the following recommended dishes: Barbecue Pork Ribs (550 THB), Deep-Fried Local Fish in Pepper Sauce (250 THB), Grilled Duck with Chili Paste (180 THB) which is their best-seller, Spicy Algoe Glass with Seafood (180 THB) and their Loft Fo (250 THB).
