It's a good deal to order the 3-course set lunch. Appetizer and desserts were fantastic but the two mains, namely seabass and rumsteak were a BIG letdown. We wondered if the chef at the helms of the mains have gone to vacay?

The best French Restaurant around. Absolutely brilliant. We stumbled upon this place which is truly a gem. $16 lunch for 3 courses. The food was superb, the service was excellent and the ambience great. A very substantial wine list is also available. In all honesty...More

I was there for lunch, Friday 2nd of June. First I thought: wow - nice place. The restaurant for itself is really a comfortable spot. The wine card has good offers, the wine I had was good. The food was sort of boring, but ok...More

Not sure why this place is receiving such good reviews. Last night our experience was not that good at all, considering the hype and the prices. The staff didn't show us to a table, just gestured for us to take a seat. Menus were delivered...More

Really still one of the best steak houses in Phnom Penh. Irregardless of what others have reviewed I have been here twice in 1 month. Have not failed to deliver one of the most flavourful steaks. It's local beef mind you but puts the grain...More

To the Chef: why do you present to your customers such a zero as a French Onion Soup. The cheese gratin was nice, but the soup itself one watery thing, out of the freezer (for sure!), the onions no color (not sautéed in butter), no seasoning in the broth, just plain water. It's the worst onion soup I had in my life and I am not a newcomer to it. I am from Alsace-Lorraine and was virtually fed up with onion soup—the real one. Your restaurant staff is mute, they are not exuberant in any way. I can see they are afraid. Are your bosses shouting at them? (Which is the usual attitude of the French here, I know it, I am living since 15 years in this country). I have met both of your owners several times before you opened the restaurant. I never thought you would perform so poorly. The Sauvignon Blanc was nice, but overpriced at 6$ a glass—and it was just 1/3 of a glass. No. I won't come again.

You must have landed on a bad day. Maybe the chef was absent. The chef is from Belgium and I have eaten at this venue several times and was never disappointed. But I must admit I never tried the onion soup. I will give it a... More
