We came to Sihanoukville for a few days and bloody loved this place to hang out. Very chilled, great food, good vibe. This has been our favourite place to kick back! The place has swinging seating so you can grab a drink, jump on a swinging seat and chill out. Good music choice too, nice variety. The food is both...

For notice, we haven't stayed here just eating and drinking, so our review is only about the bar, food and atmosphere. And, we (couple of +30) loved the place. Relaxed, very very welcomed! And a feeling to be sitting in someone's living room. The food for us was great, not that expansive other reviews says. Cheap beer, and affordable drinks...

This place is situated in the beach and that place is average. But the issue is very low facilities and bad service. They dont even provide water also.And prices of foods also very high than others. Better to improve quality and cleanliness of the place.If so this will be a great place to stay.

Food is nice they do a lovely roast, live music is good if you like that, if you like a party this is a good warm up place but don't stay too long as you will fall asleep in your chair, setting is really nice and chilled, fish tank is nice too, dogs area but scary they seem to snap...

We are 2 couples who met while traveling and happen to meet again in beautiful Otres. We truly enjoyed the swinging hanging chairs the first time we went in. We had their happy hour beers for 50 cents and it was a burger day. My oh my it was one of the best burgers we've had in our travels and...

This is not my type of bar, but the age demographic is not me either. However if English bars beer and herbage are your thing you will fit right in. The food is typical pub food, this will clearly appeal to a certain group of people.

This place has very friendly staff and is a stone's throw from Otres beach but there was no atmosphere (on check in I was warned Friday was party night....there were two of us at the bar at 10pm). I stayed in the dorm which was a mattress on the floor with a mosquito net around it. I'm a big fan...

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you feel we did not have any “atmosphere”. During low season some days can be very quiet and other days very busy, I guess that is why it is called “low season”. I'm unsure as to why you state that the windows did not open as we have 3 very large windows that...

Did not stay at this accommodation but came here one night for dinner and a few drinks. The bar area is super cool and really well thought out! Very comfortable indeed, including swinging chairs! Good choices on the menu (especially the beef lok lak) and good service from bar staff! Recommended!

I normally forget to review places, and I am generally a fair judge and hate to complain, but this place really does not meet my expectations at all. The rooms are very dingey and dark. Anyway, we were shown to our room to be confronted with a fan that didn't work-we swapped it for another two that didn't either, to...
