“Best value for money in Siem Reap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Are you backpacking around South East Asia and looking for somewhere cheap AND good to eat at, then this is the place. Sure you can eat rice every night to same some money (i've done that before) but every once in a while you need to treat yourself, as then even a simple bruschetta or chicken wings taste amazing!
Heres the deal, go with a friend and get the 5 tapas spacial for $11. You can choose any 5 from their tapas menu and if you choose the right ones you will have more than enough food for a decent dinner for 2 people, plus the beers are a decent price.
The location is quite and the fans are plenty so its breezy and relaxed. Also the guys that work there are very friendly and their service is top notch, always there to get you another drink and take your order but not intrusive, that can be a hard one to balance and they do it very well. (i have been there a few times so i can say it wasnt just a one off). Nice one!

“Great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

My husband and I ate at the restaurant attached to this guest house and ordered tapas. We had the 8 tapas for $15 which included bruschetta, calamari, tempura prawns, chicken skewers, beef skewers, and they had plenty more to choose from. The servings were generous, the food was really good and we had difficulty getting through it all. We couldn't believe the value.

“lovely and quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

This restaurant is right on the river and makes for a lovely evening meal. It is away from Pub St and all the crowds so is peaceful and quiet. Staff are very helpful and the manager is wonderful. All speak good English and are very attentive. The menu is varied and has Khmer and western food. I love the platter of humus, pitta bead and nibbles...is excellent! Prices are very good and it is a great place to relax and unwind.

“Great...Greater...WONDERFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

Just around the corner from the busy (and sometimes expensive) PubStreet, you can find this charming restaurant overlooking the riverside.
The friendly staff makes you feel right at home.
The menu offers a wide variety in typical Khmer dishes but also nice selection of western dishes.

“Great food and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

We didn't feel like another trip up to Pub Street and being asked if we wanted a tuktuk or to buy anything.
This restaurant was on the way and looked really nice, across from the river and good for people watching, it was always busy - so a good sign.
The staff were really nice, cocktails good (but slow in coming).
We had tapas - 5 different Cambodian /Western dishes for $10, they were all tasty and it was more than enough food.
