I wanted to come here because the reviews are somewhat good and we were in the neighborhood. The place is not very inviting and there were no people there at 7 pm on a Saturday night so that was a red flag as well. But we sat down and ordered anyway thinking French people usually eat later . Ordered beef... More

I had dinner in this place with my friend, wanted to try some French cuisine. The food was ok although very rich but the place looks very gloomy, it seems cleaning and decoration is not very important for the owner. French paint and washing curtains once in a while doesn't cost that much does it ?

The menu is French with options for Khmer food. Not cheap. Onion soup had some resemblance with what it should be.

Le Marmite is a good go-to French bistro in downtown Phnom Penh. I have visited Le Marmite multiple times over the last year. It has consistently produced good French food. The prices are reasonable and the menu varies from seasonal specials.

One can find French food in cambodia.and we were pleased with our discovery of La Mamite. They have a set meal of 2 courses for 9.75, high for Phnom Penh, but well worth it. I chose to combine a thick onion soup topped with bread and cheese with salade nicoise. My husband enjoyed his salad a bleu, beef filet, very... More

Went here on our last night. Had a really good meal. Quiet little place with an adorable cat wandering around. The deep fried Camembert was amazing and so was the ice cream sundaes! Nice change of you want something other than Khmer food:)

Two of us had a delightful evening, though alone in the restaurant, with tasty food served by pleasant folks. The chef stopped by to say he hoped we were enjoying our roast beef and entrecôte. We were. The appetizers of mussels and escargots also were delicious. The price was right, less than $80 including two glasses of wine, a bottle... More

La Marmite has been one of my go to places for lunch here in Phnom Penh. They have a daily lunch special and they have recently lowered their prices. I usually have the Small Charcuterie as a starter followed by whatever the daily special is... I have never been disappointed. The food is very good, more than decent-size portions, the... More

La Marmite has long been and still is one of my favorites French restaurants in Phon Penh. Check the daily specials, and the Sunday super special. Really worth a try!

We had out to this place in the evening after business meeting, it was a hidden place which we had to drive several time, I don't think much driver knows this place. We had to use the GPS to find this place and it took me about 45 minutes from the hotel I stayed. Finally we reach the place and... More
