The food is nothing really special but the building is very classy, architectural and the ambiance is superb. The location is slightly off the city centre but it is facing the Mekong River. There is a good selection of cocktails available. Definitely worth to give it a try.

We had a good evening here. The restaurant and bar decor is quite quirky but made for a very memorable meal. The food and service was very good. We went for dinner quite late and it was fairly quiet by the time we arrived, not even half full. I would imagine when the restaurant is full it has an amazing,... More

Came here with my mom for my birthday dinner and were overall quite pleased! Both had a starter, main, and shared a bottle of red wine. The food was fantastic, but the server was not able to recommend a wine when we asked for a dry red. She only picked up the menu and pointed out their selection of reds,... More

Our hotel (the Pavilion) recommended that place and we were not disappointed. The building is an old Chinese merchant house and is beautiful. The decor is quirky, a combination of old Chinese artefact and modern and vintage furniture. The cocktails are affordable and very drinkable, the food is delicate, the staff are very friendly and keen to keep us happy.... More

Food was out of this world the beef cheeks were just melt in your mouth good. Definately one of the best dining experiences I've had in Asia. Keep up the good... More

We heard about this restaurant through our Phnom Penh hotel. Last minute decision to go (advisable to make a booking as the place is packed). We were lucky as we started off at the bar to sip some delicious cocktails and the manager/host got us a table on the ground floor. Food was outstanding: we had a tomato starter, I... More

Had a work dinner here for about 50 people and the wait staff did a excellent job of service. Food was delicious, seafood entree and I had an amazing duck breast for main. Beautifully cooked. Would highly recommend if visiting Phnom Penh for dinner.

We decided to come here after seeing the TripAdvisor ratings and a suggestion from a friend. I had a great vegetarian dish and my wife had the duck which she said was one of the best prepared ducks she has ever had. The staff was very helpful and the location of the restaurant in an old house was very nice.... More

A well deserved reputation for fine food. The menu is not large but what we had was first class. There is a huge selection of drinks available and the cocktails we had were excellent. Very nice airconed restaurant and the staff are all very good.
