Food is fine. Wonderful, in fact. My favorite part about this restaurant is actually the pace. It makes you slow down, really ask your date how they're doing, & celebrate the gift of taste buds. They march to the beat of their own drumline distinct from the go go go just outside.

If you are looking to spend a relaxing afternoon, in elegant surroundings, look no further than The Elephant Bar at Raffles Le Royal.
From 4.00pm to 9.00pm is happy hour which makes it doubly delightful to sit by the large arch windows soaking in the sunshine and sipping the sumptuous cocktails.
The service is first class, as would be expected in such an establishment, and the food we ordered from Café Monivong, was delectable.

Our cocktails included Singapore Sling and Phnom Penh Signature Cocktail, which were served with a selection of nibbles, Mojito, and Long Island Iced Tea.
We ordered Sihanoukville Crab Cakes, Baba ganoush , Hommos, Pita Bread and Olives which were served with a bowl of six different varieties of dinner rolls. To finish, we ordered Irish Coffee, which, I must be say, is the best I have ever tasted.
Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend The Elephant Bar, if you want to spend an afternoon in style, and not too concerned about your budget.

If you hate a large, ornate, colonial dining room with few guests and an almost eerie silence (at least until such time as the piano player starts), stay away. If you don't like waiters dressed as penguins hovering around your table fussing over you continuously, stay away.

I do, occasionally, enjoy this thought and so, even though I was alone, enjoyed my dinner here, which was well-cooked.

If you enjoy this kind of thing, you'll like it.

From the moment you enter this restaurant you are welcomed by the friendly manager & staff. You can not go wrong, every dish we had was sensational, matched beautifully by the wines. Definitely the best meal we had in Phnom Penh.
