This just so reminded me of a restaurant in Hanoi both in terms of the quality of the food but also the style and ambience. The extensive menu is simple but the taste and quality of food is exceptional. Reasonably priced (good) wine.

I found this one on trip advisor thought we would give it a try and I was very impressed! The service was great from the time we walked in to the time we left. Steaks were awesome! Exceptional food.

While researching things to do in Siem Reap online, I saw that somebody recommended coming here to use the pool for free with any $5 food/drink purchase per person. We went around 11am and had the entire pool to ourselves for about 5 hours! Between my partner and I we spent about $13 on the breakfast spread and a dessert,... More

Went with a friend based on reviews. So worth it! The food was so delicious; fresh, seasonal and well-cooked, we couldn't have asked for better. Service was good, prices very reasonable.

Excellent restaurant with great food and atmosphere, indoor and outdoor. A must see in Siem Reap, and Martine, the owner, is a peace of French sunshine. All good.

Kanell isn't exactly off the beaten track as it's along Makara Street but if you don't know where it is, you might miss it and that would be a shame. At the back of this traditional house in the garden is this gem of a place. Tables in different areas, it is cosy and lovely. The menu offers something for... More

The place is perfect for a romantic dinner as the tables are quite isolated from each other. The food is very good and the service is nice and efficient so everything is there to enjoy a very nice dinner

A very hot day noon last week when I returned hotel feeling hungry and tired, so we looked for food nearby and found this restaurant rated 4, then checked in. I barely remembered what we had, but I felt I must write down what I got: The price is high, even higher than in the historic sites, besides, we need... More
