Description: Armand's classic menu, which includes steak, duck, baked Alaska and unique personal touch have provided the solid foundations on which his Phnom Penh reputation has been built. Come anytime, you can get a tournedos rossini at 11pm if you want to... With the grace of a master artisan, Armand works before his guests splashing on cognac into a pan before setting it alight and frying the tenderloin in a blue glow. As the flames flicker out, Kampot pepper sauce is added to the pan and Fois Gras is folded in. The meat, ever centre stage, is cooked in the sauce, reaching perfection before being plated. Busy each night with friendly people, you will never regret your visit at Armand's Bistro...

“Best steak in Phnom Penh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

The moment you walk through the doors you feel like you have been transported to France. The atmosphere is comfortable and fun. Nice small menu, mostly steak, not sure there are any vegetarian dishes on the menu!
Good value wines and if you end up chatting with Armand yourself and make friends he will no doubt give you a nice digestive or dessert on the house so you leave with a good taste in your mouth! Definitely book here as well.

“For meat lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

We visited this restaurant on July 13th. It is great to experience the French Quisine in Phnom Penh. Although mr. Armand is a bit outspoken, I love it when the owner connects his name to the restaurant and gets involved himself in the cooking and all kind of other details that can make a visit so worthwhile. Quality of the food and wine was excellent. If you love meat and a true French atmosphere, feel invited and enjoy.

Ps Do not forget to take cash.

A great Parisian style bistro Armands is a real treat. The relaxed ambiance and friendly staff make for a special dinning experience. I would recommend the steak flambeed in cognac with a bottle of house red !

“Amazing steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

First off, the restaurant was filled with French people which is a great sign for a French restaurant. We were given bread and it was so fresh and delicious. We each had a ribeye steak which came with potatoes and green beans. Everything was cooked perfectly! Would definitely recommend this place.
