Great food, quick service, no background music at first 30 minutes, making it quite secretive, too much aircon to cool off our steak and other dishes. The oysters were suspect; when we ordered a dozen, the waitress came back to us that there were only 11 left. Might not be that fresh... The dishes and dessert were speechlessly great, just... More

I must confess that the main reason for booking our dinner was to dine in another great example of French colonial architecture, formerly Banque de l´Indochine. The building belong to a wealthy local family which fled after Khmer Rouge came to power, but returned earlier this century and restored it lovingly to its former glory. The food, prepared by a...

We went by tuk tuk from Raffles to Van's past the US embassy - it was close enough to walk, but we were counselled not to do so in Phnom Penh at night. Located in the former Banque Indochine building, where the vaults can still be seen on the ground floor, the restaurant upstairs is in a beautiful room restored... More

I like the atmosphere and set menu. Definitely I ll come back for its upcoming monthly menu. Pork shop is juicy and good with its pepper sauce. Also escargot is a must try.

My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner, the food was delicious and service was good. We were part of a river cruise that included all meals and needed a change of taste, this was an excellent choice. Eventhough, the servers needed to understand English better.

This is a more traditional French style restaurant. Very good desserts, souffle to die for, lemon tart fabulous, top end prices. Worth a visit for a special occasion or you are craving for traditional tasting French food, without all that fusion nonsense.

The setting in the old bank of Indochina was amazing. I was also expecting amazing things from the food having seen so many glowing newspaper articles and reviews. I would describe the meal as decidedly average with above average prices. This might be because we ate from the set menu, or it might be because we were the last people... More

This beautiful restaurant is located in a building that use to be the former Bank of Indochina building and was was built during the French Protectorate in the 1920s - 1930s. The main dining room with high ceilings spreads a sense of how things might have been about 100 years ago. With a party of 5, we tried nearly the... More
