We really enjoyed our meal here. We went on a Sunday night, and it was quite quiet - so we got to chat extensively with Phiippe and his lovely wife. The food was absolutely delicious - fabulous Cambodian cooking - or French, if you prefer. I chose Cambodian (incredible)...although I was very sorely tempted by Philippe's tartiflette. The profiteroles sunk us finally - so delicious and such a huge helping.
A great evening - very much recommended.
As for the plastic straws that so upset the previous reviewer. OF COURSE, we are all on board with cutting down the plastic - this goes without saying. And Philippe is working hard to provide a viable alternative that they can make work. So no need to get your knickers in such a right-on twist, mate. They are truly doing their best under what must be difficult circumstances. Since you are on such moral high ground, environmentally speaking, we can only presume that you travel everywhere by boat - it must have taken you ages to get to Cambodia from Europe - so you must be some kind of saint. .

I must say the food was good and the owner very nice. Only big problem for me is the use of single use plastic straws, in 2019, it's like saying "environment, no, I don't really care". Please change your policy on this, you'll save money, make customers happy, and feel good too ! I'll love be happy to remove my review if they turn it into bamboo straws.

Glad we found this place. It was near our hotel, so we decided to check it out. The French-Khmer owners were very lovely and friendly, and we had a great meal. The portions are extremely hearty, so if you're not a big eater, you might want to share the mains. I wish I had done that so that I could have tried the desserts, which sounded great.

A hidden gem located slightly outside the usual venues but well worth visiting. A great variety of khmer and french selections complemented with some amazing additions from the Magreb awaits the visitor, from the fois gras raviolis entrée to the duck breast main you will be absolutely delighted by the quality and preparation of the dishes. The plates are slightly above the typical khmer price but portions are abundant and the quality makes it well worth it. Two thumbs up for this amazing family restaurant.
