Walking along Riverside and casually stopped at this restaurant for dinner. It looks good. Staff warm and friendly. There ends the good stuff. We had steak for dinner. The imported rump was very very tough. I do not like to complain in restaurants, I just don't return. However I was asked how my food was by the waitress and I... More

Bougainvillier restaurant is a French restaurant offering a large choice of excellent dishes prepared by a French cook. The menu for lunch is also an excellent deal and the wine list offers a large variety of wines. Conveniently located along the riverside, you enjoy an excellent meal in a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Having a selection of many different restaurants in Phnom Penh, we thought it would be a nice change to try French food.

Went to this restaurant as it was the Khmer New Year and there were only restaurants open along the riverfront. This did not disappoint. We had the set Khmer menu and the food was delicious. We ordered wine and a large bottle of wine as well. The service was fantastic always making sure our glasses of both wine and water... More

Bougain Villier Restaurant is on the Riverfront. We choose to eat here as they had a tasty looking menu, and because they accept credit card. Service was impeccable and added attention to detail i.e. place napkin on you. The food did take a very long time to arrive after ordering, but we did have complimentary nibbles. It was nice.

Dear valued customer, Thank you so much for your review and having dinner at Bougainvillier Restaurant. We are happy you liked our food and services. Nothing is prepared in advance because all the products are fresh and sauces are home and hand made. It is normal for the main course to wait 15 to 20 minutes. But when taking starters... More

Higher end meal than any I have had so far in Cambodia. The service was good, had wifi and nice to have elegantly decorated restaurant, complete with good cutlery and proper napkin. Server both full French menu as well as local recipes. Did a great 4 course set menu for $12.50 - ordering off the menu was good too.

The restaurant itself looks Devine, old colonial style French restaurant, that's where it ends. Food overpriced, not cooked that well and a little bland. The wine is decently priced though.
