I visit Cambodia each year and no trip is fulfilled without a trip to Oh Neil's in Kampot. The owner is one of the nicest and most interesting people you could meet. You will always find a cold beer, good conversation and awesome tunes on the sound system as standard. They also do slick homemade food!

If you're looking for a spot to have a few beers and fall in with the locals then look no further, good music and atmosphere with a few regulars propping up the bar- just like it should be. Staff were all friendly and chatty and Neil the old school owner will give you a good laugh.

More of an expats/locals bar than the best choice for tourists. Though I'm sure some travelers would enjoy it too.

From an expats point of view Oh Neil's is damn near perfect. Friendly staff, a good selection of locals and expats (mostly expats - both male and female), late opening hours, a nice long bar to prop up, a relaxed approach to the consumption of combustibles, plenty of local knowledge, banter and relaxed conversation.

A particular mention to the barman/manager, Orian, who does a great job of keeping everyone happy.

Note that the location on TripAdvisor is slightly wrong (why the hell can't TripAdvisor and Google get Cambodian locations right?). Oh Neil's is on the Riverside on the block just North of Rikkitikitavi. Not down the side street TripAdvisor shows it on.

Food was mediocre to the point of defining what mediocre is.

This place claims to be an Irish bar but it isnt. One tattered old Irish Flag and two cheesy leprachaun hats doesnt make it Irish.

No atmosphere, no friendliness (did not welcome us or say goodbye).

One star is a kindness.

Hi There,RoryMaxiPablo,

Thanks for taking the time to write your first and only review of Oh Neil's.

There are a couple of issues you raised.the outstanding one being mediocre food...May I enquire as to which dish you had,if it was not to your liking I'll certainly have a word with the chef.

The "old and tattered" Irish flag you mentioned is neither old nor tattered and is washed and ironed every few weeks.I will happily provide photo/video evidence to show you,posting pics or vids is not available to me on this response forum.

I'd also like the name or description of the member of staff who failed to greet you or say goodbye,as almost no one enters or leaves the bar without human interaction.

You might also note that in most cases the reviews express completely opposing views to those selected by your good self.

I hope you can make time to address the issues mentioned above,we always want to make peoples experience at Oh Neil's a special one,

Best regards,Neil
