“Great ambiance, great food”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Enchanting place for lunch or dinner, very friendly staff, delicious Spanish tapas, great dessert and lovely handicraft shop downstairs. Nice to know we were contributing to the local Church's social activities! Definitely recommend it, specially for a more quiet, different experience in Battambang.

“Excellent Mediterranean Cuisine”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

A meal at this local social enterprise not only warms your heart but also excites your taste buds. This restaurant offers a selective range of Mediterranean food in a nice and decorative environment. The meals are very reasonably priced and the staff was very attentive. Downstairs they have a small shop of locally made products. The income from the sale of these products is reinvested in educational programmes around Battambang province.

“Outstanding Khmer and Mediterranean food for a great price! All profits go to help local NGO”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This was the best place in Battambang for Khmer and Mediterranean food, super quality for good price. Its well located and the restaurant is very well set and decorated. The service is super good. There is a little shop in the bottom floor. All the profits go to a local NGO that helps, for example, kids with dissabilities caused by bombs. This makes it even better, as your money goes to a good cause! I highly recomend it!
