A fabulous building and its friendly staff are completed overshadowed not only by the new monstrous hotel next door but but also by the spectre of greatness it never quite reaches. Lovely setting eating outside, friendly diners to chat too and a good standard of food. It just felt that for the price, I should not have noticed the building... More

Taken to La Villa by a local and such a surprise when you walk through the door. French colonial. So much history in the entrace and then you walk into the amazing dining area. There is also an amazing outside dining area. You could be in France. Service was excellent and the food was a surprise. Fantastic cocktails and the... More

Having stayed a few nights in Battambang, we were curious to have dinner at La Villa, a place sandwiched between two of the new high-rises on the east bank. And when the food arrived, we certainly weren't disappointed. I ordered the local beef steak which came wonderfully tender and accompanied by al denote vegetables, a smooth mustard sauce and the...

We went to La Villa expecting fairly sophisticated food. What we got was confused and fumbling service and food that was one small step above cafeteria fare. The dining room was almost empty but the staff nevertheless seemed baffled by even simple requests. When our food finally arrived, some 45 minutes after we ordered, it was disappointing. The lasagna was... More

I have been to La Villa several times - an upmarket hotel on the river, the restaurant is a mix of french-inspired and local meals. Prices are slightly elevated compared to other local restaurants however this is certainly a place to go if you are looking for something special and/or craving a good western style meal. I enjoy the New... More

La Villa is a upper scale restaurant/hotel in Battamgang. We experienced a great service and delicious food. The owner/manager of the location is European (French I guess) and clearly knows what tourists are looking for. The meal consisted of three courses with French and Khmer specialties and each single one was delicious in its taste. The hotel looks really enchanting... More

La Villa is fabulous! It's one of the nicer restaurants in Battambang - the special occasion kind of restaurant. I enjoy the Chicken salad there and I'm not afraid that a bunch of bugs are going to be crawling around in there. The atmosphere is fabulously chilled! Great place to go to have a nice classy night out!

This place is amazing. The decor is one of the finest in Battambang. Food is a bit more expensive then other places but well worth it.

Had beef bourgeon which melted in your mouth. The outdoor seating was perfect, soft lighting and lovely dinner music. Recommended by our hotel for good French food and it truly was. Service was good. It was in a boutique hotel so unless someone tells you about it you would not know it was there.
