Best ribs ever. Wait until your really hungry before you go as the portion of meat you get is HUGE even the half rack! I definitely would go back here.

I went here expecting to have some delicious tender bbq ribs that fall off the bone like others had described. But oh how I was wrong. The portion was huge but it certainly wasnt what I was expecting. It was basically a huge slab of really tough meat that I could barely even cut through in some really terrible "bbq"... More

We had a very nice acceuil,and some very nice and well served food: pork ribs,mixed grill were excellent. The classic fish and chips and the Rusty mash were as good. Best food in Kampot

Visited for lunch. I'm a vegetarian and know this may seem a strange choice (the place is known for it's ribs) but my partner isn't veg and the menu looked pretty extensive so I thought this would be fine. Of the 1 of 2 meal options suitable for a vegetarian, neither are particularly exciting, nor good. Average perfectly summed up... More

I have LONG heard of the famous rusty keyhole ribs and in all my many years of going to Kampot, I had never actually tried them so we set it as a goal for this trip. It was well worth the worth and completely lived up to expectations. the portions are HUGE, the ribs are clearly high quality meat and... More

Good food and good view of the riverside. The staff weren't super attentitive but the food was good. I got the veggie breakfast and enjoyed it, the eggs weren't cooked properly (even after asking the staff to cook them again). The cider and coffee was tasty

The Rusty Keyhole was recommended by friends and by the Lonely Planet. We had a huge rack of ribs and loved it. Great sauce, great chips and also enough to share. my friend had a barracuda steak with pepper and lime and it was delicious too. highly recommended.

I ordered the potatoe skins and when they arrived I thought the dish looked amazing. Unfortunately they were very very tasteless. What might make them better is if they're crisper and possibly some cheese, salt and pepper. Rosemary would also really suit them to add some flavour. Unlikely to go back.

Came to the Rusty Keyhole when I heard about how good the ribs were and they were actually pretty amazing The portion was massive and the meat was perfectly cooked with a great sauce, the mash was also good as well as the coleslaw. My friends both got the burgers they did as well which also looked amazing. Although this... More
