We have been coming here for three years and the service, quality of food and lovely garden setting never disappoint. Ben and his staff make you feel at home, attend to your every need and while the menu is limited what it offers is delicious. The pasta bakes and pizzas made in the wood fired oven are recommended.

...and tasty food! The whole place is very nice, we really liked it! Food is great, especially the pizza. The staff is very friendly. But still it is quite pricy for Cambodia.

The beautiful gardens and surroundings of Mea Culpa is the first plus. The second is the staff who are friendly, welcoming and attentive. The third is the delicious food and the fourth is the cleanliness. There's a wood fired oven for the pizzas, which are packed with toppings and piping hot and the pasta bake with meatballs is simply scrumptious!... More

On arrival from Siem Reap we were welcomed at Mea Culpa with a smile and our room ready despite arriving mid morning. The twin room had very good air conditioning and we spotlessly clean. The bathroom facilities are good and the shower really efficient (don't think it isn't as it is wall mounted. Ben, the owner and the other staff... More

I reviewed this restaurant a while ago, and it is now even better. Whereas the wood fired pizzas ( the best in Cambodia) were available only until 6pm. Great news , Ben has extended the hours for the wood fired pizzas until 10pm. Much better, as 6pm was too early for most people.

Mea Culpa is a small guesthouse. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They keep the place spotless! Pizza oven is always busy because the pizza is fabulous. Try the house salad with feta and pine nuts. Quiet and relaxing place to stay-always our choice when traveling to Kampot. Such a comfortable place to stay.

A bit outside from the center of Kampot but worth it if you like good pizzas. And again the staff is lovely

Service from the owner Ben was absolutely fantastic - nothing was too much trouble . The room was spotless and good size. Best pizza in Cambodia, cooked in a wood fired oven. Would definitely recommend this place, close to river and a 5 minute stroll down the river front into town.
