Not only is the restaurant romantic, set in a large airy Khmer style house, the food is beyond amazing. There are 5 and 6 course meals for $22 and $26...in any large city, this kind of quality and creativity would cost at least $150 pp. Each course was unique with ingredients we have never had, such as lotus seeds. This is the place to dine regally in Siem Reap, but make sure to reserve.

This restaurant offers amazing quality of food at very reasonable prices. The ingredients are all locally sourced, with really creative interpretations. We tasted both the vegetarian and meat/fish options and were highly impressed with the how they were both cooked and presented.

This restaurant is definitely a culinary highlight in Siem Reap and if it was in a major city, you'd be paying substantially more to enjoy the food.

This restaurant had great service and ambiance but I was not very impressed with the food. Perhaps the chef was having an "off" night or my expectations were too high after reading the great reviews and having ate at another highly rated restaurant (Mie Café) the prior evening and thoroughly enjoying it. The food presentation was excellent but the taste was in my opinion mediocre to average. The food definitely had an exotic flare but some of the ingredients just didn't seem to work together that well. Almost like the chef was being a bit over creative.
Just my humble opinion.

Joannes Riviere produces food of astounding quality. The fish was cooked to a succulent tempo, rich, light and subtle all at the same time. Only a Frenchman would put a mini burger in a delicious bouillion, topped with sauteed squid......Congratulations, really fantastic!

Flavors of Cambodia were brought out well in a 5-6 course dinner menu that was well worth the price. Ambience and service were great as well. We were impressive by the braised pork shank with star anise and fresh bamboo shoots. It's really really delicious. Menu is clear and well explained by the waiter. The wooden house with old furniture and lamps create a cosy atmosphere.
