Lovely restaurant with a mix of western and local food. We tried the daily special of Paris Brest with spinach and cheese sauce and a fish amok. Both were excellent and substantial. Price was extreamly reasonable as well. The staff were friendly and efficient. A nice place to watch the world go by...!!

Have been eating here several times and liked the atmosphere and the very friendly staff. Thank you for your hospitality Mr. Doun and Mr. Kim Leang! Free Wifi, nice to sit outside or at a windows table upstairs and watching the people walking by enjoying great food and a cool Anchor beer.

Over the years I have sat here many times, reading the newspaper with an iced coffee and watching Siem Reap expand at an astonishing rate. Today was the first time I had eaten at the restaurant and for me it was a sorry experience. My friend ordered chicken fried rice which was fine, I had the salad nicoise which was... More

What is from the outside most likely the most authentic and architecturally interesting "original" French-colonial corner restaurant in this town is a place which needs to be avoided. They don't know what they are doing and have no clue in regards to basic gastronomy. Sad. It is also an expensive place! (Bloody Mary: $4.00, normally in the tourist area: $2-00-2.50)... More

After walking around the Old Market all morning, we parked our tired bodies on chairs placed street side at the Grand Cafe. Nothing grand, as the name would suggest , but the area did have a bit of a French ambiance. The Angkor beer was accompanied by Nem, a Vietnamese/ Cambodian variation of spring rolls and Khmer noodles.reasonably good meal,... More

Order the ginger catfish. Very tasty! Food was super reasonably priced. Although the should try to keep up with the drink prices from across sue street - $1.50 vs $3 for G&T's. Only complaint was the food was slow. Had to remind them about our order.

Came here drawn in by the lovely authentic colonial loos of the cafe and found a great table at the window on the first floor - amazing place. Felt for a some quick, non-Asian snack and ordered Croque Monsieur. Nothing special, nothing you'd think you could do much wrong about and something you'd expect to be decently served in a... More

Le Grande Cafe *was* one of the most reliable, decent, well run, well located restaurants in Siem Reap, if not Cambodia, especially for the foreigner needing a taste of more than local fare. Alas, ownership changed long ago, and other than the name, nothing like it was before. Compounding the fact are those reading near five star ratings and either... More

We stopped here for a coffee and ice cream. The second floor has great views and allows you to people watch. It really has a grand feel. While we didn't have a full menu, the cappuccino was amazing. To put this into context, I am a total coffee snob, a character trait I developed while in Melbourne. The wait staff,... More
