It's a little beat difficult to find this place. Atmosphere simple and limited choice of food.
French speciality cheek beef was excellent.
The owner is friendly and sympathize.
Thank you, hope to see you next year.

Excellent diner and evening at "Chez Gaston", a little typical French restaurant. Mr Gaston is a colourful and friendly character taking good care of his customers, and his cuisine is simply delicious. The menu features tasty countryside dishes, but also foie gras and a few delicacies. The place is picturesque, lively and the wine enjoyable. A must try!

We went there with a party of 11. It is a small bistrol in an old building. Ambience like that of a small bistrol in France, simple menu written in chalk on the blackboard . The beef cheek is tender and is to die for. The tripe was also delicious. The glacé was a small surprise and the chocolate mouse was great. We were treated with black current liqueur on the house after the dinner which was generous as they have left the whole bottle for us to enjoy. Price is absolutely reasonable. $US 185 including two bottles of wine. I will recommend it to all my friends who are going

This is a genuine French food experience in the middle of an innocuous part of Phnom Penh. Blackboard menu and wines, local friends, a lot of French expats and a classic host who might turn up with some rocket fuel to accompany the meal. Tiny place with a genuine French decor. And the food is first class at very very reasonable prices - small but excellent menu, good wines. This is definitely a place to go

Went with a visiting French friend. I had heard of this place, good things too, but had never been there. We were enthusiastically welcomed by a very French host (Gaston himself) and fed excellent bistro style food. The wine list is small but reasonable, as are the food prices. Service is friendly but not particularly rapid, but the experience is so enjoyable that time sped by. Both of us felt very satisfied with our meal, and I will certainly return. It is very small, so its probably best to reserve. A votre santé, Monsieur Gaston.
