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...

The owner is a great character, some people don't like his wholesome personality but we went there with a group of friends and were received admirably. The place is full and vibrant, the meat is great and the wine is a perfect match.
Go there and try the rail letters and the pâtés of the chef and indulge in the great meats.
The owner might seem rough but if you decide to enjoy and be easy going then you'll have a great time..

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.

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 !
