Located in a stately former bank, this restaurant was one of the highlights of our 7 days in Cambodia. Quiet, efficient and highly professional waitering staff and the food was imaginative and delicious. World class dining. I unhelpfully can't recall what we had though pretty sure I had rack of lamb for main, but both of us very impressed.

Went there for dinner and had their fois gras, lamb rack and soufflé. The food was excellent. The lamb was nicely marinated and the soufflé was to die for. Highly recommended.

This is in a nice part of town and ,once you reach the first floor dining room it's a very atmospheric space to dine. Crisp white linen, a wine list, a space with 'old world ' charm. Good value too. Hope it continues.

Lovely settings in an exquisitely restored building next to the Post Office and across from Artisans D'Angkor. They will sit without reservations. Service is prompt and efficient. The menu is adequate. There are several vegetarian choices and a basic choice of desserts.

The service is professional and efficient, and the set menu from which we ordered was good value. The seafood mains and chocolate lava cake dessert were especially memorable. But I'd recommend anyone going there to take some time to soak in the history and wander around through the building admiring the finishings and the view from the roof top bar.

You can really see the french influence in this stunning building. The building is the former Indochina bank. There is still a lot original items there. We went for a few cocktails on the roof top bar, and whilst walking up to the roof top, you most definitely feel like your walking around someones house. The views from the top... More
