I was very excited to eat at this place since it is listed as one of the best breakfast spots in Siem Reap. Me and my friends were starving and based on blog posts, the American breakfast was good and the bacon was superb. We got lost twice but still decided to pursue. After all, the best spots are always... More

Do NOT go to this "cafe". Food is horrible and way overpriced. You are better off going to Pub Street for the SAME amount and 10x better quality! River View Cafe was initially published at Angkor Sunny Villa but already changed name and location.

No longer at Pokambor address. Now in Sunny Angkor Villa Hotel, apparently. (38 Vihear Chin, Svay Dang Kom Commune, Siem Reap) The owners should be responsible for this sort of update.

Read many reviews about the place and it's food. If the food was as good as the previous reviews, then I wouldn't mind the distance. Distance was about 1 km from the main road. Ordered the big breakfast but was disappointed when the bread was stale. Food came extremely slow. Don't sit at ground floor cos flies will swarm you.... More

The best cafe in cambodia!!! I lived right across from Cafe Giulia for 6 months and went there at least two or three times a week. I almost don't want to write this review and tell everyone about it just to attempt to keep it a secret. Though a bit gruff at first, the staff are all extremely friendly and... More

Expected more from the reviews we had read. However now it appears it has moved so not sure if we were in the correct place or not, bit confusing. If it was the correct place service not very attentive and the food quite average.

Thank you for attempting to visit River View Cafe, and sorry for your disappointing experience. As you surmised, the original River View Cafe is no longer at that address. We are in the process of reopening in a new location, where we intend to deliver the same good food, big portions, and attentive, friendly service that you read about in... More

Thanks so much for looking for us; sorry that we aren't at that location now. We're moving to the Angkor Sunny Villa Hotel, where River View Cafe will now be located. The new restaurant in our former location has a similar name, and seems not to have their own account. We appreciate that you came by, and hope you'll find... More

Thanks for your review. The restaurant you visited is now the Angkor Bodhi Tree Riverside Cafe. The River View Cafe, previously at that location, is now relocating to the Angkor Sunny Villa Hotel, where we'll offer the same great food, big portions, and attentive service that our many customers enjoyed when we were at the previous location.

I have eaten in this restaurant many times and every meal is delicious. Large servings too. Breakfast is yummy and done just right. The Adobo is wonderful. I had never eaten Filipino food before and it was absolutely delicious. Great atmosphere and service. Cannot wait for your new location.

Josh, thanks so much for your kind words. We are, indeed, in the process of moving to a new location, still in Siem Reap. We have enjoyed having you and your wife dine with us over the months, and we'll be delighted to welcome you again to the new River View Cafe. Thanks again, and see you soon! More
