This is the restaurant you want when you are fed up with fast food noodles or rice but you don't want to spend billions of money to a high end restaurant that only serves small portions on a big plate.
This restaurant serves food like your momma would serve food, or your grandmother: in big quantities, with delicious sauces and gravy, with your favorite side dish (potatoes or fries or salad) and with a lot of love. I come here already 3 years and it has never disappointed me. High quality food every time.
The couple is Belgian-Thai. So you can find delicious authentic Belgian food here (lots of meat or fish with fries) and also really good thai food.
My favorites: grilled seafood, ribs (flesh is melting in your mouth), meatballs with fries.
Ow and try the black pepper sauce or mushroom sauce. They are so divine it makes mayonnaise almost unnecessary. Yes, I wrote almost, because true Belgian fries are the best with Mayo ;-)
Werner is the owner of the place and a lovely and relaxed host. The whole atmosphere is relaxed. Totally worth the trip as it is along the river. There is parking for motorbikes. Not for big cars though. Come with a tuk tuk to this place. It is a family friendly restaurant.
I'll take my parents here when they come to visit me, yes, it is that good. Enjoy, you won't be disappointed. Don't come here with a full stomach, plates here are divinely big.

We were really impressed with this place - I had a schnitzel with pepper sauce that was delicious and my wife the Hungarian goulash which was also very good. I had the potato salad as well which was great. Reasonable prices as well.

Bring your appetite!!!! These plates are huge!! My husband thought he was eating his grandmother's potato salad. It is a bit off the beaten path but so worth the extra 5 minutes.......we rode our bikes from the King's Road Angkor area and it was about a 5 minute bike ride. The owner is so hospitalbe and will be the one who takes your order! Then he will be your friend for the rest of your visit! So fun and delicious!!!!!

Back in Siem Reap and had to visit Crocodile River once again. The massaman curry is still excellent and authentic and the schnitzel still huge and so tasty! Throw in the best Belgian beer selection at very reasonable prices and you have a big winner. We will be back again and again!
