Wide Variety of great Food!

Yes you go here for the ribs but there is something for everyone here. The ribs are good and are more than just the ribs. The meat is also behind the ribs too! My kids found things to eat that they like too. Service is a bit slow, but that is everywhere in Kampot and Cambodia! Enjoy the slow... read more

Food is okay abit overpriced for Kampot. The ribs aren't what they used to be probably due to the lease expiring in near future. Thus maintenance from the footpath inwards is dangerous ok. The service is very average, not what it use to be. The toilet I think reflects upon the future. It's truely a shame and it's nothing upon... More

With all the talk of this place and ribs my partner and I obviously ordered them and were not disappointed. We ordered the set recommended for 2 people which works out to be $4 each and with mash and the coleslaw that came with it was easily enough for the both of us. Food came out quickly, tasted great -... More

came here two nights. Very pleased the first night with the mexican fahjitas and cheap beer but the ribs the next time we visited were a huge disappointment. Drenched in a way-too-sour marinade and chewy meat.

Had a great burger and fresh fries. My bf had the special, grilled barracuda, potatoes and a salad. We couldn't get over how delicious it was and how cheap the prices are. I know they are famous for ribs, didn't have them but they looked great. You'll regret not stopping by while in Kampot.

Quaint little watering hole. Perfectly positioned to take in sunsets with a river view. The owner has a lot of local knowledge and also pointed us in the direction of one of the best scooter rentals we found anywhere while staying in Cambodia (Daily Meat scooters/bikes/food just up road from Rusty Keyhole). Try a Strawberry Ale for a refreshing afternoon... More

After reading all the reviews I knew I had to try this place. Ribs and Bibs not withstanding I went for the fish and chips. The portion was large but not much flavor even though the fish was fresh enough. Mainly the staff was unusually unfriendly , especially for cool ole Kampot. But when I looked around I could tell...
