“The food was OK but the villa itself is stunning!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We went for lunch before catching the bus back to Siem Reap. It was all freshly cooked, more Western style dishes. It would have been nice to have seen one or two more vegetarian options. However, it's worth going just to see this beautiful villa, carefully restored. They also have rooms and a pool in the gardens behind the main building.

“Fabulous spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Loved staying here food was great and the restaurant is in a beautiful room with a large out door area attached. As with most of Cambodia the staff could not be more helpful

“not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

love la vila,
if you want a place to go to relax and have a fantastic old school meal, this is the place to be.

After having a starter of french onion soup, (very nice), followed by new zealand beef with pepper sauce, followed by creme caremel.

This place has style; fantastic environment, old french colonial house, eating either inside or outside in the court yard, (definetly have dinner outside at night, under the fairy lights)

the food and drinks are a little on the expensive side, however if you are looking for a nice place to take a special somone, or a business dinner, this is the place to go,

service was very good, waiters were very attentive, even thou there were many people in the restaurent.
all in all, definetly recommend this place, if you are in battambang you should try this place

“Beautiful building, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

The Villa is a wonderfully restored colonial villa and the restaurant is airy with period fixtures and fittings taking you back in time. The food is French / Cambodian fusion and is quite sublime. Yes, it is a little bit more expensive than most other places in town, but if you fancy a little treat this is certainly the place to go. The service was attentive and professional.

“nice restaurant in an old colonial building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

the restaurant is set in an old, beautifully restored colonial house, which is also a hotel. we were seated in a lovely courtyard at the back of the hotel with a lovely atmosphere

unfortunately while we were there, there was a lot of noise from the water festival on the river front, which was blasting even into the courtyard at the back of the hotel. so we didn't have the quiet romantic dinner we had been hoping for but we enjoyed the great food and service.
