This bar is part of the Happy Elephant bungalow and the owners are really nice. The feel of the place is relaxed and you can't help but enjoy your stay.

I was excited to eat here after reading good reviews online. When our meals were served, I was severely disappointed. My boyfriend and I both ordered Fried noodles, mine with vegetables, his with chicken. I found a number of chicken pieces in my meal and as a vegetarian, I couldn't eat the majority of it. Obviously not much care was... More

We came here on Christmas Eve and had a really fun evening. The setting of the bar, overlooking the jungle, is very picturesque, There was barbecue food available- you even get to help cook it! The beer was incredibly cheap. The owner is a real character, with some very interesting English expressions which Trip Advisor won't let me write due... More

Phat Gecko Bar is definately a true haven. I have stayed in Cambodia for just under two months now and it has been a breath of fresh air to stay somewhere that does not feel like a western bubble, (despite having all of the amenities that keep us feeling comfortable and at home.) Each of the bungalows comes with it's... More

Run by a Cambodian man and his French wife. Both are very friendly and highly communicative. Limited selection of beer, but it is served cold. The bar area is really more of a restaurant,and the seats are a bit hard and not easy to get comfortable in. The location is a bit out of town on a narrow path, but... More

Owners of the place (Mr Mot and his French wife Virginie) are nice people and they offer good services : - the food at the restaurant is fine. We enjoyed our local meal - they also organize elephant tours and car trips (to go around and visit waterfalls). Both of them were very good and not so much expensive (after... More

We booked a one-day jungle trekking trip from the 'Elephant Bungalows'. First, the guy showed up 40 min late (we were told to wait at around 8.30 and he arrived at 9.10). Okay, we went to a small village. A guide from the the minority village started the trip with us. Unfortunately, there was no briefing before (from the guy... More

I stayed here for 5 nights, and I think I had some of my best timea in Cambodia. Vivi, Mot and Tera are all awesome people, down to earth, honest and friendly. They organise loads of different tours and trips and even cooking classes, I was lucky enough to have Mot's mum cook cambodian curry and it was superb :)... More
