Amazing food and incredible service!

We came earlier in the evening for a cocktail during happy hour and told the staff we would be back later for dinner after our boat trip. They recognised us as soon as we went back and asked us about the trip! The service was faultless all night and they were all so friendly. The food was amazing... read more

I'd go back and try it again based on other recommendations. The service is orchestrated to the point of a performance but getting attention off cue can be a challenge. The restaurant may suffer from its reputation by raising expectations in advance of a visit. The food was good but I was underwhelmed. I ate better elsewhere in Kampot.

I have had the opportunity to dine at Rikitikitavi many, many times (more than 15) which I feel qualifies me to make an unbiased (not based on one meal or one experience) review of this restaurant. This is one place you can never go wrong at. From the entrees to the main courses (try the chicken pesto panini, it's off... More

They do a great cocktail, and a good mix of western and Khmer food. Staff are courteous and competent. Ambiance is nice - high above the street with lots of airflow and plants etc. Food is a bit more expensive than most other places in the area, which is okay sometimes but not ideal.

This is a must visit restaurant when in Kampot, if only to enjoy the sunset over the river from the upstairs area. That said, the food is also very good with an extensive menu and during the happy hour, the cocktails are also good value. Definitely aimed at westerners, it is not cheap but reliably good. The staff are pleasant... More

The quality of the food was superb. The ingredients and preparation were first rate. The kitchen must be incredibly well organized to serve in the fashion they do. My favorite restaurant in Cambodia. The drinks were excellent too. And the service was prompt, friendly and classy.

As we live in Kampot we like to try out different restaurants so we don't get around to eating at them more than once but we have been here twice. The quality of the food is great and the view of the riverfront is outstanding. A bit expensive for the backpacker crowd but worth the extra!

Yes, this place is nice. Good location, friendly staff, plush interior. I am unsure what the rooms are like, but the price maybe conducive to a different breed of clientèle. Enjoy sundowners here as the globe sets across from Mt Bokor.

Sort of place for middle aged middle class people with enough money. Nice looking building with fairy lights but bit expensive
