After 2 weeks visiting Camboya with college friends this was the best restaurant we visited. Delicious food (both Spanish and Khemer), charming decoration and wonderful staff. I specially liked the Spanish tortilla and the gazpacho (made by Spanish people) and the staff speaking very good English and very friendly. They also have cheap nice wines and a shop downstairs where they sell traditional clothing of the area made by handicapped. And furthermore, revenues are for the ONG. 100% recommend it.

Excellent food. Very welcoming staff who were charming with the kids. A very nice mix of Spanish and Cambodian food. Eating the Spanish omellette for a moment I thought I was in Barcelona! Very nice atmosphere with international and local people!
Also a very nice store with handcrafted goods.

I went there with my husband and children and we all really enjoyed the delicious food, the calm atmosphere, and the tasteful decorations. There is a shop downstairs that is worth a look, has beautiful shirts made by the handicapped. If I ever go back to Battambang, i'll be sure to visit the Lonely Tree Cafe again.

I was seduced by the shop where you can find nice jewels and handicraft. But I was disappointed by the food, too much oil in the tapas and the chocolate mousse was not light, too thick. Staff friendly.
