When I visit Phnom penh, I make sure that I go for a different gastronomic experience at the riverside. I have tried the opposite restaurant and I was really disappointed for the price, so I was first hesitant. For Cambodians, this restaurant is expensive but if you're looking for a feast for your palate, this restaurant is a must. I... More

While staying in Phnom Penh for few days this place has became our favourite for breakfast and dinner. Would recommend tuna, which is simply great. Nice whine and desserts selection.

I often visit Phnom Penh for the weekend, and Metro is usually our Friday evening port of call. It is located at Riverside and is very smart and very modern. Staff are attentive and professional. The menu is "tapas-like" and is a mixture of Asian and European cuisines, as well as some good fusion creations. Cocktails are great, and very... More

I'm a regular customer since they've been opened. Nice selection of food and drinks featured in their menu. Taste and quality is consistent, good presentation and usually very well trained staff. Despite the fact that parking is a major issue in Phnom Penh (especially riverside area), their parking attendants are in my opinion, the most efficient - you don't have... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times last year and the standard is still great. We did make a reservation this time as there was 6 of us for dinner. Service, atmosphere, staff, food and drinks were great. Although not the cheapest restaurant in Phnom Penh, it is well worth those extra couple of $. Great wine selection... More

The metro is a nice trendy bar located at the riverfront. It's great watching all the activity on the street and along the river. Appreciated to have aircon when outside temperature was growing to 36 degrees. Value in the average.

It’s a pleasant and trendy place, that's why we came back again for a drink. Finally we decided to have diner. That was probably our mistake. It took more than 30 minutes for a salad and a steak. The steak wasn’t cooked as mentioned when I ordered (instead rare it came medium) and we had some doubts about the salad... More
