“Wonderful desserts but hard to find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

It took me 2 days to find this place, based on TA reviews. There was no clear map and even though the address was given Cambodian people tend not to know the English names of streets, only the main streets by numbers. Nobody knew where this place was and, in fairness, there seems to be nothing else around the place to act as a landmark. I finally found it with the help of a concierge desk at one of the big hotels, but even he hadn't heard of it and it took us both a good 10 mins to figure out where it might be. In the end, it's really very close to the town centre, just hidden away. Staff were really nice but I explained that they really need to print a good map on their website.

“Great khmer coffee and pastry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I came here based on TA reviews, for a chocolate cake with hazelnuts that proved to be really good as well as the khmer coffee I had, black, that did surprise me, so tasty and sweet, despite no sugar ! It deserves a try, after much walking/cycling along the streets and alleys of Battambang.

“What a dessert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

We went to choco l'art after walking for hours, tired and thirsty for something good, we ordered a chocolate mousse and a chocolate cake with hazelnuts that was unbelievable good! Made our day! We haven't had such great pastry since we left home!

“Artistic place, average eating experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Loved the look and feel of the restaurant. Service is a bit tardy, sandwiches aren't great but the desserts are fantastic. We loved the art and also struck up a conversation with an art student who worked at the restaurant... was very fun!
