“Bloody lovely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Barbequed mixed seafood, grilled by someone who obviously cares about the food he serves. The sauces, entree's, and flavours were spot on, as are the staff, and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Definitely recommended.

“perfect grillmaster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We had a mixed fish (6 different fishes!!) & seafood (squid, shrimp, clams) grillade (@ 7.50 US each was a bargain considering the very fresh fish on display and the nice setting) and it was all just perfectly grilled. Unfortunately the side dishes with potato, salad and a small piece of (old) baguette are not on par level with what comes off the grill. Nice side relishes and small appetizers served. Very nice and effective service. All in all a surprising and pleasant experience.

“Grilled Seafood”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We were searching around in Kampot town for a good restaurant for dinner and the lighting at La Java Bleue grill seafood restaurant attracted us to walk over to investigate.
There were varieties of fish, squids & prawns to choose from, cooking with different ingredients as explained by the owner.
We wanted just fish, therefore the owner recommended us a whole fish and he said will be grilled to perfection and very tasty.
While waiting for dinner to be served, the rain came and luckily we managed to move ourselves inside the restaurant. There is no canopy therefore some guests were wet due to the rain.
Finally the grill fish came and was served with baked potatoes and salad with various sauces. The grill fish is flat as it was not marinated before grilling, therefore you will need the sauce to go with it.
Overall, the food taste average, the fish plus 1 coffee & tea comes to about USD19, which is reasonable.
However, if you do drop by this restaurant, please try other things in the menu, might be tastier.
