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.

Mea Culpa has a good choice of wood fired pizzas, certainly the best around, plenty of filling and without the creamy stuff the Cambodian restaurants all seem to spread on top. The cooking time is limited for the woodfired oven, as it tends to close around 6pm, best to check before. However the rest of the food is excellent, good... More

I stayed here for 4 nights during my trip in February 2015. While its a little bit hidden away it's still only a very short walk to the main part of town, really good location. Room was very tidy and well maintained with air conditioning & ceiling fan. Bathroom was simple but absolutely fine. The hotel had a great dining... More

We stayed at the hotel as well. The food is great. It is a mix between Western cuisine and Cambodian style. It is very good. The pizza is good, it is worthing a try. We missed a swimming pool. The staff is very nice.

It is not necessary to qualify Mea Culpa's pizza as being great for Cambodia. The wood fired oven and skills of owner and chef, Ben, make this outstanding pizza for anywhere. We have, eaten pizza in New York, Italy, Melbourne Australia as well as far flung places like Guatemala, Tanzania and Istanbul. I'm happy to say that Mea Culpa's pizza... More
