Having stayed in the next door guesthouse for 2 months & having heard the singing waiter from our rooms often, we decided to pop into Genevieve's. On the first occasion, the restaurant couldn't fit our group of 8 so we booked for the next week.

The food was really fantastic, I had the lasagne which the owner recommended & it was delicious! I tried a few other dishes which were also lovely. The cocktails were well priced and tasty. The English of then Khmer staff was great. Although the food was slightly on the expensive side for us, a 20% discount is offered to volunteers which was obviously well appreciated! The ethics of this place is great, helping to educate it's staff and working with various local charities. Worth popping in :)

Thanks for your great review. A bit of information for our customers. We are currently closed while we move and will re-open probably on Friday (1/8) this week or definitely Saturday. Also Sovy, our singing waiter, is still in Phnom Penh at 'The Voice Cambodia'. He's not sure when he will return, but probably not for a week at least. I will post on FaceBook when we re-open and also when Sovy comes back.

Best food ever! Our driver has earlier on recommended a restaurant but it was fully booked and we decided to pop by Genevieve's Restaurant which is just a few doors away.

Outdoor sitting, and the owner was very nice to go round every table to explain to his customers the various dishes on the menu.

We ordered - Duck Salad, Beef Lok Lak and Lamb Shank. And to be honest, Duck, Beef and Lamb are not the usual meat that I eat (my preference has always been fish, chicken and pork). But I was completely blown away by our orders.

Duck Salad - YUMMY!!! Love the sauce and the duck ain't fatty.

Beef Lok Lak - the owner actually told me it is a dish that is ordered mostly by men cos it is rather heavy - beef + rice (carbo!) + sunny side up egg. But we decided to try and glad we TRIED! The combination of the beef slices and the lok lak sauce is simply AWESOME! You gonna try it. Skip the rice if it is too much carbo for you. I bought the lok lak spice from the airport, not sure if i can replicate that yummy taste at Genevieve's.

Lam Shank - we were told that he took 8 hours just to stew it. Served with potato, the lamb is so soft it simply melts in your mouth.

Prices are reasonable. We paid around US$40 for the above with mojitos and other drinks.

Free wifi (do ask for passwords from the staff), outdoor sitting available, reservation preferred cos sitting is limited.

Decided to go to Haven but they didnt have any space and were unwilling to let me wait for a table so i just walked down the road to this place.

The staff are very friendly and nice, customer service was great along with their english. The food was near perfect, we had a steak, salad and a few other small dishes and all the food was of a very high quality.

Its definitely a great place to check out and you wont regret it.

Thank Jason C

Visit on the first day of the holiday and yet to find better.
The owner visited the table and wowed us all with his passion and dedication to excellent cuisine.
Ingredients were fresh and the flavour excellently balanced.
Book ahead as it fills up fast to avoid disappointment.

We went twice to this restaurant.
Very fresh food and excellent service. The Owner really looks after the customers and his own staff which creates a nice atmosphere in this cousy restaurant.
One of the waiters was performing 3 song in the middle of the dinner, if I am not mistaken was one Thai song, one Cambodian and one European...The voice of this talanted person will not go unnoticed if you have the chance to listen to him.
I think we paid a total of 12 usd each dinner for two people....
