Description: The River Bar is a full Bar and Restuarant sitting along the Stung Sangke River. We offer a wide variety of Khmer dishes and some western. Outside seatings, scenic view of the river and an ambient look in the evening. We are currently under new management and our prices are fair if not cheap. We do take out to legit NGO's and businesses that request our service. We have real ice cream and cold drinks. Extensive menu and Happy hour on Angkor draft is only 50 cents through the hours of 5pm to 8pm everyday. We also offer a 15% discount on all food products on Tuesdays during our lunch hour which is from 10am to 1pm. We also have free movie night on Fridays starting at 7:30pm. Along with our movie night, happy hour runs for certain mixed drinks and shots. So come and check out the place for yourself and experience a unique setting of The River Bar.

“DIssapointment plus”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2014 via mobile

we passed by what looked like a great place to sit and relax,,,, river , good view,, and plenty of open air seating,, yes it was all that,,,
But we seated ourselves ordered a beer , iced chocolate and a pancake,,, my partner received a beer not the one he ordered but at least he got a beer,, after 25 minute we asked were my order was,, iced chocolate was then delivered to our table,,, it wasn't until we asked. For our bill did. They even remember the pan cake,,, this restaurant was more concerned with there computers and phones then looking after customers.

“Beautiful margarita!”

Stopped off just for a drink here one evening. Staff a bit over the too but cocktails were amazing and some very strong! A wide choice of drinks to be sampled.

“It's nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

It is nice on a hot day to sit by the river. Wish there was more wind. Then the rain came. It finally got cooler.

“Good Setting & Cheap Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Definitely the nicest place to sit and relax for a while in Battambang, Open air restaurant along the river bank, nice settng with tall trees surrounding it and the river down one side, on a quiet road too. Prices were a lot cheaper than we expected when we saw it, draft beer was cheapest we found in battambang and the food was quite cheap as well. Unfortunately the quality wasnt as good as other places, pasta i got tasted like it had been heated up in a microwave but my mates food was ok, but just ok. Still one of the nicest places we found to sit and relax for a few hours though.
