Joannes Riviere produces food of astounding quality. The fish was cooked to a succulent tempo, rich, light and subtle all at the same time. Only a Frenchman would put a mini burger in a delicious bouillion, topped with sauteed squid......Congratulations, really fantastic!

Flavors of Cambodia were brought out well in a 5-6 course dinner menu that was well worth the price. Ambience and service were great as well. We were impressive by the braised pork shank with star anise and fresh bamboo shoots. It's really really delicious. Menu is clear and well explained by the waiter. The wooden house with old furniture... More

Quite tucked away but definitely worth the trip. The food was absolutely delicious. It was modern food, using local ingredients. Great value for money as this would be a top restaurant anywhere. The chef is certainly talented, he came to chat and was charming, and was passionate about Khmer food. We had six courses and each was beautifully presented, offering... More

visited the restaurant with 2 of my colleagues after reading the comments from trip advisor. The food is more of a western (probably French) using local ingredients. Using local ingredients does not qualify a food to be local. Being an Asian, it is also NOT an Asian cuisine either. But on positive side, we enjoyed the ambient and food decoration.... More

I went there 2 weeks ago. I had little experience of Khmer food but after trying Cuisine Wat Damnak's food, I'm totally in love with it. There's a different menu every week, which I supposed is based on what's in season. I had the 6 course degustation which was excellent, comparable with Michelin star restaurants. They use local produce, some... More

Khmer fusion food. Amazing food, service, ambiance. This place would be packed every night if it were anywhere in the world. Make a reservation. Someone said, too salty. I say no....perfect. My dining companion had never eaten tongue before and had to have it two nights in a row. This place is a gem. If you go out to dinner... More

As a vegetarian, especially in South East Asia, food can become a chore instead of a joyful experience. But not here! The tables were decorated beautiful, the staff were attentive and the Head Chef offered a most fantastic menu for vegetarians. My particular favourite was Parnell and water lily salad! Simply out of this world! I recommend that everyone who... More

We came here spontaneously and were lucky... But since the place seems to be full every night you should check with them in advance. The restaurant offered two different 5 or 6 course menus, no a la carte dining. Very well prepared dishes, friendly service, good choice of wines at reasonable prices. If you are into slow dining you should... More

This restaurant could hold its own anywhere in the world.. The degustation menu at $26.00 would cost 5 times that in Aust. and not be as good.
