A little gem in Siem Reap

The restaurant is nest in the middle of an amazing garden. There is a pool that let you cool down from the hot days. Large food choice from asian to european food. My children loved the ability too choice between different pasta type.

An Oasis away from the dusty road! The garden setting is very well laid out. There are interesting curios and lighting aspects. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. The table settings and serving dishes are carefully placed. The amuse Bouche was a welcome surprise. The food is of a high quality and freshly prepared, bit not expensive. We enjoyed... More

In English it means The Garden and The Pool which makes the setting of this restaurant rather unusual. It must be a real treat for diners who do not have the luxury of a pool where they are staying to be able to cool off in the pool at this restaurant and then have a good meal in the garden.... More

We went here as the first stop on our set menu tour, unfortunately I was not interested in anything on the set menu, so instead opted to order a green beef curry, which was full of flavour. The staff was not overly attentive, but we were there at the low season, so it may have been they were understandably dodging... More

Don't miss this cozy hideout in the middle of busy Siem Reap! The food is great but I enjoy even more the ambience. The owners and staff are kind, gracious, and aim to please. The pool is lovely and the water cool but not too cold.

Found this place listed on trip advisor and spent my last afternoon here lounging by the pool and having a tasty lunch. Not too hard to find and defiantly possibly to walk there. There supply towels which was a nice bonus. Toilets and changing room where clean and the huts and seats are all comfy and well looked after. Worth... More

I went there guided by the people at the guesthouse I was staying in. It was such a relief after two very hot and dusty days visiting Angkor to spend the day by the pool doing nothing enjoying the food and the bubbles. Nice atmosphere and service too.
