Reviewed March 19, 2013

I've been coming to Siem Rep for business for the past five years, and I happen to enjoy French cuisine quite a bit. Of course, Cambodia's colonial heritage means that there is quite a bit of a selection when it comes to French food, but nothing quite like the "Frenchy Gekko":

This restaurant is probably one of the most unique in its category, it serve home-style dishes cooked with care and passion by a lovely French couple who recently took up residence.

A must for everyone! Even for European travelers on a budget looking for a little taste of home, and want to check emails while having a boeuf bourguignon under $10!

We spent a week in Siem Reap and discovered this restaurant on nearly our last day - we still though had to come back and bring my friends to try it we enjoyed the food so much. Its not in the central area which in itself makes a nice change , it is on the road out to Angkor temples. The menu is a small selection but something for everyone and between us on our two visits we tried every dish I think, each one was superb!
The owners are very pleasant and create a good relaxed feeling.
We were travelling with two young children and their reluctance to eat was met with offers of various simple things until one was satisfactory for them! This is very rare in most restaurants such attention to the client even if they are 5 years old !
So make the effort to eat lunch or dinner here even if its off the beaten track - it is worth it.
