The TA "near me now" app on my iPhone has the location of this excellent restaurant very wrong. Thinking it was a few hundred meters from our hotel we walked to where it was meant to be. Fortunately a nearby tuk-tuk driver convinced us it was across town and across the river (2 or 3 k's maybe) from where we... More

We went here because of the favorable trip advisor revues. We were not disappointed! Great canard à l'orange recipe, artichokes stuffed with chicken liver confit... And much more, good wine list, friendly stuff and friendly owners... And as a dessert passion fruit with passion fruit sorbet fresh from the garden! Delicious! Need I say more? Merci!

We arrived for dinner on Tripadvisor recommendations. A little concerned as there were few customers, however, the food was amazing and very reasonably priced. Very friendly, great food, excellent prices. Make sure you do eat here.

We just had dinner at Kanell last night and it was great. Our hotel, Golden Temple, has a great garden area so we wanted to keep up the ambience for dinner as well. Kanell is located off a dusty road but inside it is very pretty and quiet. We were seated in our own pavilion. We stuck with Khmer food... More

a romantic setting in lovely gardens with delicious French or Khmer food and reasonable prices. An easy walk from Pub Street to the other side of the river away from the hustle and bustle of tourists.

Cannot rate this place highly enough! The pool area was spotless and very secluded even though it's in the heart of siem reap. It's free to use the pool all day as long as you spend $5 on food/drink you also get given a towel. The staff are amazing and provided us our meal by the pool side under a... More

We had a dinner here me and my family. The place is just beautiful and the service is very professional. The food though has been disappointing, knowing the chef and his wife were both chefs when they were in Paris. We ordered a filet de boeuf which came still iced at the table and two entrecôte really not good quality.... More

Our last dinner in Siem Reap was here after reading all the excellent reviews, but we were so disappointed and let down. The setting was beautiful and romantic and the staff were good, however the menu was all over the place and the food was in edible for most of the dishes we ordered. The best thing about the menu...

Tasty food with a good wide mix of western and local dishes to choose from. The surroundings were intimate and as long as you remember the bug spray, eating outside adds to the atmosphere. We drank a cracking Languedoc Pinot Noir - (worth trying a glass or two) and enjoyed Khmer dishes alongside a classic steak au poivre.
