About
La Plantation is a social and sustainable family project, the perfect combination of traditional farming and modern processing. At La Plantation, we produce Black, Red, White Kampot pepper and the exclusive Fresh Salted Kampot Pepper, Red Long Pepper, Turmeric, Bird Chili and local fruits. Grown traditionally and harvested by hand, our spices are processed with high standards in quality and hygiene and are certified organic by Ecocert. Presentation, tasting and free guided tour in English, French, and Khmer. You will understand why Kampot Pepper has been elected #1 best pepper in the world. La Plantation has also a social dimension by improving the living conditions of many people in this rural area and by taking care of the primary school. You can enjoy our spices in our two restaurants (Khmer and French), or join a Khmer cooking class. You can also experience a tour in the rural countryside up to Secret Lake in a cart pulled by water buffaloes.

A Delightful Morning at La Plantation
Jan 2021
I was quite hesitant to come here as I usually don't like touristy places. But good thing I went through it because the place was just so serene. I was the first visitor so I had the place to myself for a bit. The way going to La Plantation was really bumpy which adds to the experience I guess. If you prefer a smoother ride then you can hire a car. The view of the lake and the plantation were breathtaking though! I had the 20 min tour around the plantation and it was interesting. Got to do some pepper tasting after which the lady kept saying "the next pepper won't be spicy". Lies. Hahah! All in all a good experience. I purchased smoked pepper and red pepper for my next cooking experiments.

Thank you very much MarinkaB for visiting La Plantation. We are happy that you enjoyed our Pepper and Spices tasting. There is indeed a price difference between Kampot Pepper and standard pepper which is due to the difference in quality. Our pepper is grown in socially responsible conditions. We hope to welcome you again soon and wish you a wonderful new year!

Great place to visit - very interesting
Oct 2020
Interesting place to visit. Nice farm and cafe nice location. Staff super friendly. The pepper shop sold many spices and herbs as well as pepper and all presented professionally.

Worth a visit if you have time. My advice is take a car or taxi as the road there is so bad, if you go by tuk tuk it would be horror ride.

Good morning, thank you very much for your visit at La Plantation. We are happy that you had a great time with us. Indeed, the car or taxi rides are more confortable than tuk tuk or moto bike rides. If you plan to visit us again, it is with pleasure that we could organize a limousine transfer for you. It is normal that the road is not perfect as it is a Cambodian countryside road. Also, La Plantation is doing as much as possible to help the development of our region. We wish you all the best from our team.

We enjoyed our day here. Our driver arrived early and drove us from Kep to La Plantation. Once there we enjoyed a.wayer buffalo tour. A simple activity, but one we really enjoyed. Seated a a covered wagon we were taken from the farm to a lake. The buffalo enjoyed a run down and floated once we arrived in deeper water, even our driver hopped in the water for a swim. We returned and enjoyed an amazing lunch of mango salad and lok lak (beef or eggplant). A farm tour followed with a great explanation of how pepper is grown, maintained and harvested. Even cool to learn how this place provides for education and training for its local employees. A tasting and explanation of all things pepper (and more) wrapped up our day. Pepper ice cream a treat as we left. I'm always happy to support local and this outfit really offers lots to the community. I highly recommend a visit here. Thanks to our driver, Ocean and Jean-Baptist for making the day perfect.

Beautiful Pepper Plantation, Amazing Tour, and a Wonderful Lunch!!
Jul 2020
Yes, this is the famous pepper farm that many visit while staying in Kampot or Kep. While many go for the free tour of the pepper farm, or the water buffalo tour, or both, they also have a fantastic restaurant there.

When you are first seated, they bring you these amazing banana chips with salt and Kampot black pepper. They are completely addicting and we could have honestly eaten them all day long. At that time, they also drop off the menu, which is admittedly tiny, to the tune of two entre options: Black Pepper Eggplant Lok Lak and Black Pepper Beef Lok Lak. Even still, Lok Lak is a traditional Khmer dish, which relies heavily on black pepper seasoning and also comes with a black pepper sauce. You can’t find a better place to try such a dish. We opted for the Eggplant Lok Lak, and it was positively delicious and the portion size was huge. Another couple from our tour ordered the Beef Lok Lak and my (Nate) eyes were wide open as I love beef.

They also had ice cream infused with their famous pepper. We tried the vanilla with red pepper after a day in the hot Cambodian sun and it hit the spot.

On top of the great food, you can’t beat the view of the pepper farm, and water buffalo, especially if you are there close to sunset. If you want, you can also snag some of your very own Kampot pepper which is for sale at the restaurant.

Dear Nate & Alicia, Thank you very much for visiting La Plantation and for your great review about our restaurant. Indeed, during this covid crisis, we offer only Black Pepper Eggplant Lok Lak and Black Pepper Beef Lok Lak. If you have the chance to come back again, we also offer a delicious roast chicken with prior reservation. We are happy that you tried and liked our pepper ice cream. Ice creams are always pleasant under this warm weather. We hope to see you again soon and have an excellent day.
