This is used to be a bit of a gem, looking like a standard hole-in-the-wall traveller café. Their food was surprsingly good and they even managed to bake a proper authentic German cheesecake, all at very fair prices. And not to forget, at 1.50$ they had the best value cappuccino in town. These were my impressions on my first few visits in 2012. Going back there now was a bit of a disappointment, the prices are still the same but the food seemed a bit more bland and the cappuccino was sloppily prepared and almost undrinkable. I'm still rating the place but they should get their act together again.

We learned of Cafe Malay from our hotel manager at The Columns. We had a very enjoyable lunch at this small restaurant tucked away up a side street near the River. Without the recommendation we may have missed it as its quite small! The kitchen and bathroom were very clean. We had been in Kampot two days and hasn't tried the local green pepper in a dish and used this as the occasion. The squid in green pepper sauce was really delicious! My wife had the Tom Yum soup (shrimp version) and was equally pleased with it. Service was with a smile, English was well understood and we rate this as the best meal we had in Kampot!

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends in Kampot, and their judgements was good. My chicken curry and my wife's sweet and sour pork were generously portioned and delicious. Good value too, and the service was efficient.

On a hunt for Amok on our last night in Kampot we found this place. The staff here are really sweet and polite, the food was delicious, chicken Amok and the biggest salad I've seen in all of Asia. Prices are reasonable too for the other restaurants that surround it.

Terrific pizza! Very much an Ex-pat hang out. Very close to the market and riverfront. Would definitely take Western guests here for a meal. Again, the pizza is fantastic!
