Food here is done superbly. I had chicken and ginger with a side of green beans. I was most impressed that I didn't have to have any rice with my meal (I don't like it, and invariably leave whatever I'm given behind). It's easy to eat a healthy, balanced meal here that is also scrumptious. The restaurant is owned by... More

Nice relaxed atmosphere combined with interesting and delicious French cuisine. Short walk from the night market. Highly recommended if you want a change from Cambodian flavours during your time in Phnom Penh

I picked this restaurant as I was looking for some french cuisine at lunch whilst in Phnom Penh. I live in Penang so a bit of a street food snob, thus fancied some finer dining! I wasn't disappointed. A great quality of food (I took the goats cheese and bacon parcels for starter, followed by smoked herring with potatoes and... More

We really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. It was really quiet and had a small debate in front of the restaurant because of the exterior and the hordes of tuktuk drivers in front of the door. Please ignore all of this. Once you come in the restaurant is quite inviting and the food is excellent. Didn't try the wines... More
