“Lovely breakfast (just don't be in a hurry)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We had a lovely breakfast here of bacon, eggs, juice (genuinely freshly squeezed) and a beautifully warm and crunchy baguette.

However, as with many Cambodian places of this kind, the service can be slow and haphazard. Relax and don't be in a hurry.

“Ok food average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

This place is good for what it is but the service was very slow. The meals came out one after the other with large time gaps in between making it not fantastic for group meals. The food was good and the location on the riverbank is nice. Worth a visit but be prepared for a long waiting time.

“Fish of the day? yes please, where do i have to sing up?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

A great location with a nice view over the mekong river. Very good and fresh fish dishes get served by the nice staff. Also an excellent place to just have a propper coffee or a cold beer...
If you get to Kampong Cham you should definitley check out this nice restaurant!!

“Great shakes and beef.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Dined here as part of an REI tour. The soup and beef with egg were yummy. The banana shakes were well-made (thanks to the expertise of the shake mixologist girls). Free WiFi and nice loungey atmosphere.
