“A must in Battambang!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Excellent food. Very welcoming staff who were charming with the kids. A very nice mix of Spanish and Cambodian food. Eating the Spanish omellette for a moment I thought I was in Barcelona! Very nice atmosphere with international and local people!
Also a very nice store with handcrafted goods.

“very tasty and cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I went there with my husband and children and we all really enjoyed the delicious food, the calm atmosphere, and the tasteful decorations. There is a shop downstairs that is worth a look, has beautiful shirts made by the handicapped. If I ever go back to Battambang, i'll be sure to visit the Lonely Tree Cafe again.

“Beautiful place but food to greasy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I was seduced by the shop where you can find nice jewels and handicraft. But I was disappointed by the food, too much oil in the tapas and the chocolate mousse was not light, too thick. Staff friendly.
