Small dishes and delicious cocktails made for a wonderful evening. Thefood is excellent with an Interesting combination of Khmer and French influences. If you like creative small bites, you will enjoy this experience! And throughout the meal the service was impeccable.

Visited Cuisine Wat Damnak while we were in Siem Reap. I made a reservation based on TA reviews and I was so glad I did! The food was excellent and very tasty (we tried both menu and ordered the six courses for both). I say TASTY as my husband and son does not like seafood and they devoured all fish... More

This was my first visit to the restaurant despite having heard lots of good things about it. The atmosphere was relaxing in the tradtional wooden house setting. Staff were very helpful while remaining discrete. The highlight of the five course tasting menu was the quail - beautifully cooked with a dellicate blend of herbs.

We were recommended as a must go to restaurant when in Siem Reap. A special dining experience which is made by very good food and service. It was packed to capacity when we dined this week, so I expect reservations are always necessary. Food was fresh and just hot enough with depth of flavor.

I have mixed feelings about this place. The owners are friendly and the restaurant itself is very nice. The food is a mixed bag, some of it is fantastic ,some of it makes me think "who thought this was a good idea?" We've traveled Cambodia extensively since 2006 and eaten everywhere from roadside/street stalls to proper restaurants. Maybe CWD is... More

Had a great meal here. If you want to try something different, then Cuisine Wat Damnak is the restaurant where you should go. The French influence is strong, with the whole set up feeling like a classic high end dining experience.

I have been here twice. Everything is made fresh the same day and I have never had anything bad here. The restaurant is very quaint and cozy, will definitely recommend to people and go back again.

Cannot fault the creativity of CWD. It is beautifully prepared and lovingly presented, with fresh, unique ingredients which combine to form subtle, delicate flavours. We loved our menu, especially the basil-chocolate mousse for desert--sounds strange, but wait until you try it!

Trip advisor highly recommended and we are glad we tried it. I honestly don't know which was more delicious - our dinner or the kind and generous service we received. Not cheap but good value for money.
