A classic French bistro feel with the food to match. All meals were good, the beef-based ones especially so. Portions are large so suggest you skip the entree.

Service is good, food is average and simple and definitely not worth the price. Same for the wine... The place has potential but so many other places in town to eat better and cheaper.

That's right. If you like the smell of cigar in the table next to you then this is the place. The food is good. The table wine is also good. Too bad that a small restaurant allows smoking. Which happens to be against the law, but cigar smoking at 7 pm? Wow!

We recently made the trip to Armand's for a special dinner. The food was lovely although my husband felt that the lamb was served a bit rare - particularly as he had asked for it well done. The waiting staff were attentive but unable to describe one of the meals to us. Whether this was because we spoke English or... More

We went with friends to Armand's on their recommendation, it's their favourite French restaurant in Phnom Pehn and I can see why. The minute you walk in the door you can feel like you are transported into a local neighbourhood French bistro. The staff, the menu on boards, the wine selection it's really well done and comfortable. We ordered the... More

The full French flavour that goes beyond delicious food and great service. My favourite must-go French bistro in Asia!

A well decorated French style Bistro with excellent food to match. I had the pleasure of dining several times at Armands Bistro whilst I was in Phnom Penh recently following a recommendation from a friend in Koh Kong, Cambodia. The ambience was professional yet friendly and inviting from arrival to departure. The French Onion soup with Sauvignon Blanc stock topped... More

Great steak, wine and service. The price is spot on for the value here. I would recommend this wonderful spot to anyone in Cambodia.

Armand's is small but great. A true bistro with a very limited menu that is all good. The boss is there to ensure quality and will flambe your meal at your table.

As we started our vacation, my boyfriend came down with a nasty chest cold, which meant he was sidelined for several days. When we arrived in Phnom Penh, he had almost recovered, but was worried he couldn't handle the spicy (to him) local food. What luck, then, to find a French restaurant recommended by the NY Times, right? Wrong. Both... More

Description
Armand's classic menu, which includes steak, duck, baked Alaska and unique personal touch have provided the solid foundations on which his Phnom Penh reputation has been built. Come anytime, you can get a tournedos rossini at 11pm if you want to... With the grace of a master artisan, Armand works before his guests splashing on cognac into a pan before setting it alight and frying the tenderloin in a blue glow. As the flames flicker out, Kampot pepper sauce is added to the pan and Fois Gras is folded in. The meat, ever centre stage, is cooked in the sauce, reaching perfection before being plated. Busy each night with friendly people, you will never regret your visit at Armand's Bistro...
