Good but more expensive than the others

I only good coffee here, but this coffee was pretty good. Friendly staff, free WiFi and comfy seats. But the place is more expensive than the neighbors.

If you like to enjoy a combination of good food, very attentative service with a pleasant view of the Mekong, then this is the place to come to. The meals and snacks are a little bit more expensive than the cheapies but you get what you pay for here. The staff were always friendly and helpful too

The El Mundo burger rocked! Best beef in Cambodia (and this was after two and a half weeks in Battambang, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh). Great restaurant right on the river front, lovely indoor seating (so you can get away from the traffic noise and exhaust), awesome food, very reasonable prices for what you great ($4.50 for a hamburger with...

All were good. The thai curry was quite enjoyable, and the chicken satay was seasoned and cooked just right. Come find El Mundo on the river, it won't disappoint.

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

We initially went here for just coffee. Ended up buying food – and I sure wish I didn’t. The beef cuts in their bee noodle soup are not even – so it’s really tough to chew. 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
