Best ribs I've ever eaten!!

Delicious ribs at a decent price. Only downside is that when I was there I had to ask to be served/pay my bill. The westerner (I presume owner) wasn't exactly a happy chappy like many other owners around town. Could of just been a bad day for him. Good food, average (at best) service. Would return

Not a salubrious setting but good spot on the river and great to get a pint of beer (and for only $1.25) and the best ribs we think we've ever had.

Had one meal here and ordered the ribs which were excellent and the homemade coleslaw was a nice touch too. The lamb shanks looked awesome too. Quick service even though it was busy.

After many years of visiting Kampot and, hence, Rusty Keyhole - I'm pleased to report that good ol' Rusty still delivers the goods. Great atmosphere - helpful and happy service and good food. The ribs challenge has brought many a wannabe undone - including my usually voracious 18 year old son, who almost managed to plough through the 1.5kg pile... More

Not a great experience for us. Went there to have the ribs but they didn't have any. We decided to stay and order something else on the menu, which although was pretty good, took forever to arrive. With the exception of one lady, the service staff were so surly, even rude. Perhaps if you're lucky enough to go when they... More

I had heard the ribs were good and after a big night in the town they hit the spot the next day. Good spot to watch the sunset over the river. Good chips as well. Will call in again on next visit to town.
