Good Ribs???

The food here was really good, but not what we would call traditional ribs. More like a lioin of pork with the bones still on. The half rack did for both of us and was tender and juicy. I love my meat and would highly recommend.

This place was so good that 2 years after visiting, I had to post a review. The ribs...my mother is watering just thinking about the hunk of slow cooked, beautifully spiced, sweet sticky meat. This place is a must for any Carnivores amongst you. Would love to organise another trip to Cambodia just to pop by this place, and maybe... More

In my opinion this should be number 1 in Kampot. What everybody says about the ribs is totally true, they are awesome and massive, not sure what they feed the pigs around here! We had a couple of other meals also, all of them where huge, you certainly need to take a big appetite with you to Rusty's. Plus for... More

Just to be boring I have to agree the ribs were fantastic, not just bones with a bit of meat to nibble on, service was really good and the humour in the menu was interesting. Nice place to sit and people watch.

Who would have thought some of the best ribs I have ever had would be in Cambodia! Their nachos, not so great, but okay. Will stick with the ribs!

The local expats rave about the ribs - which were good (fall-off-the-bone tender), but a little on the sweet side for my taste. That's purely a matter of personal preference. Owners are really nice & service is great. Great location on a central corner, riverside. 2 of us shared 1/2 rack & it was plenty - don't get a whole... More

I still remember the ribs we had here like 10 months ago. Juicy, tender, flavoursome, huge fat pork ribs! couldn't be better. especially in the middle of Kampot! especially how much we were expecting this experience (based on previous reviews we've read) and how it was beyond expectations!

Decided to bite the bullet and order a full rib... WOW! 3 baked potatoes and enough meat for a family Sunday roast with coleslaw was placed in front of me... 1 word is enough - HUGE! If you want a feed of kingly proportions then you must try the ribs at Rusty Keyhole.... with a few ice cold beers of... More

We had quite a few meals at rusty keyhole during our week in Kampot. All the meals we tasty homestyle cooking. Also had two serves of the ribs. Looked like a lot of other people were too which isn't surprising as they are delicious. Staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome. Great place for a sunset beer.
