My partner and I had been searching all over town for lobster, and not the smaller Bay Lobster. It was a lost cause so we finally gave in and went to Sokha, thinking it would be highly expensive, but would have what we wanted. First, the grounds are gorgeous. The restaurant is set apartment. I was surprised at how reasonable the prices were. Yes, they did have lobster, but not prepared the way my partner wanted, for some reason only a soup would do!). The service was impeccable. Although we were only offered the seafood menu initially it turns out there is a tapas and a Japanese menu. There is also a good wine selection with several by the glass, prices go up for the bottles, naturally. Amusingly, the easiest thing on the menu to prepare was by far the last to come out.....maybe because it wasn't seafood and the kitchen wasn't really prepared for it. We had cocktails and then a bottle of Malbec. We then went down to the beach for awhile, but came back to order more drinks. The staff were funny and very, very well trained. We then rented a hotel van to run some errands and get back to our own guesthouse. People could not have been more polite and accomodating. The food was delicious and we are thinking to go back. Next time in town, I'll want to check out the accomodation prices....this is low season.
