Great Steak!

We've been there a few days ago and had the steak with Kampot pepper. The beef was extremely tender and the sauce was a great experience. Thank you very much!

I'm so glad Cafe Malay has re-opened in Kampot! Their espresso is on point, and you must try the homemade passionfruit ice-cream. The staff are super friendly and the cafe is small but cosey, with outside seating too. I really enjoy spending an hour or two watching the world go by here.

Good news for the Kampot foodies. Malay and Stefan are back in town. Since a couple of days Malay's Diner is serving its patrons in the old market (South side). And they will restart Cafe Malay at the old place after renovation in the next weeks.

My husband and I have been in Kampot for 1 week, and been back to this place 3x already. They have a menu with plenty of variety, and their fruit juices are excellent too. It's a nice place to just unwind and have a couple beers if you choose. The German owner and his staff are very friendly...which makes us... More

The food here was amazing. Both traditional and western menu choices were all good. Don't go past the Sugar palm curry - it is truly the best thing on the menu.

I particularly enjoyed their Spaghetti Carbonara and Lasagne. Pizzas are also good. Friendly prompt staff and reasonable prices.

Resisted this place because like many in Kampot it is a mix of Western and local food and I always want to eat the food of the country I am in. But since I was recommended by a trusted source I went. Menu includes the ubiquitous lok lak, marinated beef with tomato and salad - tough in many restaurants but... More
