It's more of an english restautant. It's a bit more expensive, but I had the khmer style salade and it was pretty good.

Firstly, let me just say that I cannot even vaguely begin to fathom how this place gets a single good review! After being in Cambodia for just over 2 weeks, my hubby was craving some meat and a break from Asian food. He had heard and read reviews about the ribs at the Rusty Keyhole and wanted to pop in...

We sat here twice a day having a drink and watch the Kampot world go by. Friendly staff. The food smelled good, did not eat here though. Great location next to the river.

Good for lovers of big portions. Reasonable prices. Not a place for vegans. We eat there frequently.

The meat was tough, overcooked and terribly stringhy. The special exclusive cambodian sauce mentioned at time of ordering consisted in liberal lashings of bbq sauce. Avoid or... More

Firstly, the little place is cool but it doesn't look like much... it is however wicked! The choice of food is pretty good but I confess to not really looking, as I knew I wanted the ribs because this is the place to be, as far as ribs are concerned! My boyfriend and I decided to get a full rack... More

Great tasty ribs served as a massive portion. Ordered the set for 2 to share with my friend & I couldn't finish my share. I'd visit again. Good for a foodie to visit!
