The beef lok lak was good. And that was all that was good. Had to wait super long for a menu, eventually went to get one myself. Had to wait again for a while to even find someone to take our order (almost no one walking around the whole time we were there and if they were they ignored customers.)... More

As soon as you arrive at Rikitikitavi you know you're in for a treat...good ambience, setting, attentive staff and a great menu. I had a special dish - fresh tiger prawns good in the famous Kampot fresh green pepper sauce. EXquisite! 5 extremely large prawns, cooked perfectly served with a good portion of salad and rice. Worth the $7. Definitely... More

Our evening meal on the airy balcony over looking the river was enjoyed after happy hour cocktails. Excellent music and service efficient and to our schedule. We asked for individual plates to share our orders, and each came with a delicious sauce made of fresh Kampot pepper. The food was tasty, lovely Khmer flavours and beef loc lak was cooked... More

We had dinner here over a couple of nights, basically because we loved the happy hour cocktails and the food turned out to be even better! We had the Amok, don't miss it as it's delicious and the Saraman which was equally as tasty. Also had the BBQ Pok ribs, a little bit dry but the sauce more than made... More

Right on the river front in Kampot, this place is very smart, and creates a tropical vibe that is a definite hit with tourists. It has a varied menu, promotes fresh / hygienic preparation processes, and delivers good food with excellent service. Happy hour cocktails make it all the better! The prices are slightly higher than the norm, but still... More

Most restaurants close early in Kampot and this is one of the only ones that stays open till late. Went here with some friends I'd made at my hostel. It's a nice setting for drinks and dining as the decor is very elegant. We all had the amok which was really delicious and very filling. The staff are attentive, smiling... More

We stayed for two days in the Rikitikitavi guesthouse, and we had all of our meals in their rooftop restaurant. Not once we felt like going somewhere else, and we tried almost all they have on the menu. The food is great, and the restaurant is a wonderful place to spend your time.

After a pretty bad meal elsewhere in Kampot, it was nice to find somewhere where the food was edible. The staff was very friendly, the atmosphere good. The Khmer food was tasty, from appetizers to mains. The Western food left a little to be desired, though. The "BBQ ribs" were not BBQ'd, but merely cooked and then slathered with BBQ... More
