Honestly some of the most well prepared food in Phnom Penh. It's a few blocks off of the water front but not too far. Just outside the hustle and bustle on the 5th floor. I think I've eaten here 5 times now... yea. I'm becoming a regular. Glad I found this place.

I stay in this hotel regularly. The breakfast is very good and so is the lunch menu. I have only eaten dinner there once and the food was overcooked. So it might have been a bad night, the options are mainly French type for the dinner menu.

On top of the hotel L'Maison D'Ambre, fifth floor. The decor is very modern and funky, nice furniture and lighting. It's in a dark dingy area of town however. Service was quite good, but the prices are very high for Phnom Penh. OK for an opening drink, then move on to somewhere with more reasonable prices.

This place is something else. Normally we just go out for dinner in the evening but we loved this place so much we kept coming back. The atmospehere is all about the '70s and they tuned the music to it also. (Just a notch up so you really have that lounge feeling) The chef cooks some great food here, he... More

Stayed at the hotel so it was super convenient for food and drinks. The service was fast and reliable. The food was good, although I found the portions to be a bit small considering the price (specifically the breakfast menu) and a great vibe!

We had a couple of times food, but mainly go there for the view with the drinks. A good choice of cocktails and evening drinks, and well decorate bar. Extremely well designed place from the entry to the top. We often go there after we had food in town.

Nicely located close to the river and several of the bar streets this high class, French style restaurant also serves nice Khmer dishes. The rooftop setting is not overlooking the river but has a nice view and an often welcome breeze. Low key decor and friendly staff, very nice menu and excellent specialities of the day. Highly recommended.
