“Don't be fooled by the bakery look”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Cafe CBF is two doors down from The Tara Angkor Hotel, not far from the museum and ceramics center, on the road to the temples. It looks like a bakery (sparkling clean, white) and the third time we were in for dinner, a couple walked in and looked at the case and walked out without looking at a menu. Their big loss. Twice, we ordered a three -course set menu ($8). They have Khmer and Western sets. I had one of each, over two days. The Western one featured a composed salad of blackened fish strips and veggies; a duck breast in wine sauce on a bed of mashed potatoes laced with bleu cheese; and a piece of chocolate cake with coconut ice cream. You would be hard-pressed to get a meal of this quality for $25 in the states. The chef knows what he's doing. The staff is friendly and helpful. Go and support these terrific folks.

“What a find!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

What a find! In search of a coffee after a morning at the temples, we were lucky to stumble upon the Cafe CBF, conveniently situated just down the road from our hotel - the Tara Angkor. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming façade, what we thought was a bakery turned out to be a gourmet delight!
The fantastic new menu had just been prepared for a promotional photo shoot and we were asked if we would like to sample and critique the food. What a bonus! The dishes, ranging from Italian style pastas to French, Khmer and Western food were all beautifully plated and tasted even better than they looked.
The restaurant was cool, clean and newly fitted-out. Make sure you stop off here on your way back into Siem Riep after visiting Angkor Wat. You will be assured of a memorable meal and great service from the fabulously friendly owners, chef and staff.

“The best restaurant and bakery in Siem Reap”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

We loved this restaurant. The staff were helpful and friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing and outside setting. We loved salad and steak. The dessert plate with a selection of khmer desserts was wonderful and beautifully presented. we found it just as easy by Tuk Tuk from our hotel.
