interesting atmosphere with decent food.

This place has friendly service and interesting decor. The food was not quite as good as Lonely Planet led me to expect: "Battambang's finest restaurant" but it was good enough. I would certainly go back.

We stayed here last week and had a great experience, the staff were so helpful and welcoming. We could not recommend the hotel enough. We gave our washing in late afternoon and it was ready by 7am the next day, we were very impressed. The pool is immaculate and a very nice temperature. the food was excellent and the patio... More

I can't pretend to be a huge fan of Battambang, but, if you are in Battambang, don't, whatever else you do, miss La Villa. I know it as a restaurant, so I can't comment on its accommodation, but that restaurant is outstanding. It is situated on the opposite side of the river from the main part of the city, so... More

Probably the best Fish Amok in town, nice place, but the owner/manager was NOT friendly and kind of ruined our evening... Local staff on the contrary was really nice!

I went for dinner to La Villa during my trip in Battambang. It has a nice atmosphere and a enjoyable garden. I had good wine and a nice pork in honey sauce. HOWEVER, staff can barely speak English, there is no way to understand exactly what's in the dish you're about to have, and when I asked for dessert (I... More

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
