Description: Le Bel Air' is a bistronomical restaurant that celebrates the two cultures its owners hold dear. The exterior pays tribute to the wonderful country that is Cambodia.

Xavier's wife Johane and their associate Thibaut work the floor to take care of your every need, giving advice and telling you all about our dishes and beverages. These include a large range of Belgian beers that are nowhere else to be found in Cambodia, nectars from the gods that will dazzle the layman and fill the connoisseur with homesickness.

The service, atmosphere and food at Le Bel Air is exceptional and perfect for a special celebration or romantic dinner. All mains come with a choice of different styles of potato, including fries. On weekends you can order the mussels which of course pair nicely with a Belgian beer. The stand out main dish was the meat balls which everyone agreed was the tastiest however we thoroughly enjoyed the Roasted Camembert with honey as a starter. It paired excellently with a South African Chenin Blanc on the wine list.
We will definitely we dropping in for just these two things again!

We are so happy we found this restaurant! We are Belgians living in Singapore, and decided to try this Belgian restaurant while on vacation in Siem Reap. The dishes were simply excellent. The ingredients they use are of high quality, the atmosphere of the place is lovely, and the beer selection very satisfying. Overall it is a very good value for money. I also like the fact that there is a large window to the kitchen, and you can see how clean it is :-). We would DEFINITELY come back if we are in Siem Reap again

You can only eat so much "local food" before you just have to find some quality continental. This is a great choice if you want a professionally prepared meal. Husband/wife team, front back of house. New and modern decor. Great menu and great prices. How in the world can you sell Rockfort Trappiste for $5 in Cambodia. More than fair. I pay $9 in California.
