While we can’t vouch for the food (which did look good), we wouldn’t recommend this place for a sunset cocktail. The margaritas were dreadful. I’m not sure how they’re making them, but I’ve had tastier medicine. A pity, because the staff are really friendly and...the setting is lovely - right on the water. The restaurant also sells handicrafts and a pretty wide selection of booze, which isn’t easy to find in Kep, with there being so few shops. So if you’re needing some fresh seafood, a couple of souvenirs and a bottle of rum or Scotch, then by all means make your way here. Just don’t bother ordering a cocktail.More

Been to kep several times and tried kimly for the first time. We went there for the mud crabs. They were insanely yummy. We had them in the green pepper sauce and they were simply to die for. We also had squid and sting ray...and prawns. All yummy. We had to go back for those mud crabs for the second night. Staff were helpful and efficient and the environment lovely. Price is on the upper end and you simply pay what you get. Up upscale dining environment and gets upper end cost. And the food was yummy and of good portion.More

This is one of the well known sea food restaurants at the crab market. Interior looks nice and it is very popular with khmer people. Food is nice, with a good selection. However it is expensive, compared to some of the other good quality neighbours...(they are not all good). A regular seafood main (octopus, crab or shrimp) will cost you 8.50.More

Food was delicious! A little hard to grab attention when they were busy, staff were well dressed and courteous. Great value for money, although I wouldn't order the spring rolls unless you like it greasy! Very happy with my fried pork and chips, would recommend...the grilled squid with deep fried garlic. It was delicious! Oh, and the banana shake, also delicious!More

This place had such a friendly service. Their menu is huge and a bit overwhelming. The food was average at best. We had a variety of crab dishes none of which I would recommend. Nice deck and seating area. There are better crab shacks in...this row to try and have a more authentic experience.More

Seems to be the largest and more upscale of the restaurants in a line next to the Crab Market. The menu was quite large. It's low season so it was easy to get a table situated right over the water. We ordered fresh spring rolls...with shrimp for the starter and five different fish and seafood dishes to share for four. Dishes came out randomly as they were ready, three before the starter appeared. The crab dishes tasted too salty. Deep fried fish filets was excellent. Would be five stars if more consistency.More

The menu is limited because it's a seafood restaurant but it is well prepared. This restaurant is on the water where you can enjoy the sunset. Staff is nice and the place is clean.

Attentive staff and a wonderful varied menu. Food was presented well and lived up to the reputation of the restaurant. Would highly recommend this. Amazing to sit in the dark over the sea watching the fishermen

Like said above. Just email your hotel and they can arrange it for you. I recommend you to try Kimly's crab meat curry.
