Description: Deco is a relaxed, stylish restaurant serving lunch, dinner and cocktails. A great place to have a business lunch, dinner with friends or just pop in for a drink. Using local products as much possible, Deco is creating inventive European food with an Asian touch running through the menu. From house cured salmon and kampot crab cakes to slow cooked steaks and home made burgers. We aim to raise the bar of European food in Phnom Penh while still keeping the price affordable. The lounge area at Deco is the perfect place to sip one of our delicious cocktails before or after dinner, or perhaps hang out with friends over a bottle of wine from our extensive list.

“Very good prices, excellent service and great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The staff speaks very well english and they have a perfect balance in the way of providing service. The prices are good compared to the quality of the food. The atmosphere is perfect for a nice dinner with your friends or with your girlfriend. Low jazzmusic in the backround and nice inside temperature makes the finishing touch.
A very good choice if you stay in Phnom Penh for a couple of days.

“All is only in the name...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Indeed, after having read all these positive reviews I was really looking forward to finally try that one...
The food was not that bad but nothing as expected and also far to be in my top 3 best in PP. Before starting I must say that my friend who had the duck really enjoyed it... He made me try it and it was indeed much better than my own choice. I tried the Kampot crab cake and it was full of oil and nearly no crab in there. The poach red snapper had a cream sauce tasting like Blue Cheese so that I even inquired if it was a Roquefort sauce...

And then so overpriced: we tried the sticky toffee pudding that was basically just a cake made of sugar cane, nothing sticky in there and must have a production cost of less than 0.5$! And then the main course come with not carbohydrates at all! So that if you want it (difficult to feed oneself otherwise!) you need to pay an extra 2$ to get 3 slices of bread, mashed potatoes,...

The only thing really out of range there was the plate decoration. That was a real pleasure for one's eyes...

Otherwise service is good, drinks are cheap, place is clean and nice.

“nice ambiance and good food, but nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Food was okay and ambiance was nice. Though nothing really to write home about. We didn't really try many drinks. I had the ginger beer which was okay.

“A good break from Cambodia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stayed at le Blanc hotel which is located only meters from this wonderful restaurant. Rob the owner was excellent as were his team. Most could speak very good English.

We stayed in phnom pehn 4 nights and eat at Deco every night.
Food was very good, different to our usual tastes but we enjoyed most meals. Great selection of drinks.

Would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Phnom Penh.

Thanks rob for looking after us and if your in brisbane look us up.
