The Rusty Keyhole has fabulous ribs! Not in the traditional style of ribs sliced with meat on the bone. There is some of that but more. Basically the ribs on a pork roast barbecued just right with the rest of the meat from the pork roast provided! That's a lot of meat and it was delightful! The "accessories" to the... More

The restaurant was crowded. Staff was slow - but meal (ribs in kampot pepper) was really delicious. Waiting is worth the taste.

They claim to have the best ribs in town and while I'm not a ribs kind of guy, they did look good. The portions here are huge and there's plenty to choose from. Everything is tasty and well prepared. The service was a bit slow but you can't ask for a better spot. Just across the road from the river.... More

Headed over to this cool restaurant in kampong for breakfast! I had the the big breakfast and it was the best big breakfast I've had in a while! Real bacon, best tasting breakfast sausage I've ever had! Real proper rusty bread! My partner ordered the musli with fruit and it was the best ever! It has 5 or 6 different... More

After a couple weeks of lovely Khmer food its nice to have some chips! The ribs were delicious, not short ribs like in the uk, more like a joint of pork with delicious sauce over. Very nice and tasty. Coleslaw was yummy but the chips tasted home made. Good service and a friendly atmosphere.

We had been here a couple of times. After a long time travelling in Asia we were starving for western food. This is the place in Kampot to go for. They have the best Ribs I had in ages and other diverse delicious food. And all this for a reasonable price, the portions are huge by the way. The staff... More

Basically it has the situation correct, right in the middle on the river front and very accessible. The service is decent, the beer is cheap and cold with the food very reasonably priced. A good place to watch things go by from and we dropped in several times during the week we stayed, nothing special but overall good.

We went for dinner, had the ribs it was OK the meat was fine, the coleslaw was not great and the fries not cooked enough. It is a popular place even off season. Service was fine.

We wondered into this hole in the wall because it seemed to have a decent afternoon crowd at the outdoor tables. It began to rain and everyone moved inside. We shared a table with some of the nomads and proceeded to order a beer and lunch. The food was so good, we came back the next day for another meal.... More

Ordered the ribs which are their speciality item. It was big and great quality, one of the best meals I have had in South east Asia. The meat is of good quality, unlike a lot of the meat in South East Asia and it was a huge sized meal. Not sure how I finished the beast. Looking at some of... More
