“New restaurant - delicious meal and excellent service”
Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

Best food we have eaten Cambodia so far. Our waiter recommended frogs legs to us - none of us Had ever eaten them before - delicious as were all the other starters and main courses. Sophisticated dessets - sweet sticky rice with fresh mango and mango sorbet beautifully presented. Newly opened with enthusiastic staff and great attention to detail. Small restaurant in a quiet area of Siem Reap set in a pretty garden. Would definitely return for another meal.

“Great food at reasonnable prices”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I was at Mie Cafe last week for a dinner. This place was rfecommended by the owner of another erestaurant that wall fully booked. What a nice surprise.

We were very pleased by the professionalism of the staff. They were always smiling and helpful.

But first of all the quality of the food was very surprsing. A high level fusion cuisine of cambodian and european cuisine. The tuna tartar was at a level that I quite never seen in France, mixing tuna and asian oil and herbs. My wife took a fish and ship (after 1 week of cambodian food she wanted to go back for once at this type of cuisine) and the fish was cooked at perfection.

The chef took time to discuss with us which was highly appreciated. Even if it is a bit outside of the touristic area (which is a plus in Siem Reap) it really worth the detour.

Congratulations to the chief and his team

“Great atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I have visited Mie Cafe twice now (going again tonight). Seems they only opened 3 weeks ago. I just stumbled upon it while walking near where I was staying. The first thing you notice is the beautifully lit garden and the intimate nature of the restaurant. Not too large(maybe seats 40). The second thing I noticed was the friendly and inviting staff. They obviously enjoy their work and working with people. The third and main thing I noticed was the quality of the food and the obvious attention to detail the chef put into his work. Nothing too complicated, just good in season ingredients cooked simply to bring out the natural flavors. I spoke to the chef and found although a local, he had been studying in Europe to gain wide experience and returned to Siem Reap to open his dream restaurant. This is a very rare thing in Camdodia. The result is a a fusion of European and local cuisine. He said he only uses food in season and menu changes accordingly. He obviously has a great love for his trade and it shows in the food. This thrown in with a good (and reaonably priced) wine list makes for a delightful cullinary experience.
Restaurant a little out of town (maybe 2$ tuk tuk ride)and thankfully away from the noise and bustle of Pub Street area. Extremely reasonably priced- I paid $10 for a main and 2 glasses of wine. Hopefully this approach will lead the way in what has become a "burger and pizza'' mentality that seems to rule the restaurants here at the moment. Unique experience. Highly recommended.
