El Mundo is a great cafe along the River Front. It serves both western and local foods. The staff were friendly and inviting. I was craving some western food so I ordered the El Mundo Burger and it was so tasty. It was huge and came with chips and salad. My partner ordered a 3 course meal which was only... More

The noodles are the instant noodles you can find in any supermarket. The noodles? Looks good, doesn't it? Forget it. Budget is around 10-15... More

This is a good choice for a full meal, a between-meals snack or a Happy Hour draft beer. El Mundo's menu has mostly Western choices, and everything I've ordered has been prepared nicely. Friendly staff, although the staff turnover has been fairly high through the years I've been coming here. Nice river views from the outside tables, though expect to... More

We only had a snack here: fresh and fried spring rolls with couple of fruit juices. It was all very fresh and tasty.

My husband and I had a great meal of kampot pepper shrimp and satay chicken. Both were served with rice. Drinks were good price. Great fun sitting on the street front watching all the action go by.

El Mundo is ideally situated on the riverside as a breakfast stop on the way to tourist attractions like the National Museum and the Royal Palace. They do a range of sweet and savoury snacks and good coffee at a reasonable price.
