Cafesano is a quaint little restaurant with really great food. In particular, I love their pizza and think it's the best pizza in the area!

I’ve had better greek/Mediterranean food. Not sure whether I’d go back. My husband and I had the chicken kabob platter, a wrap (strangely they do not have gyros on the menu so we ordered whatever was most similar), grape leaves, and an olive and feta...More

Yes, I stayed at a lovely hotel right in downtown Siem Reap called the Bopha Angkor Hotel. I highly recommend it. Very relaxing and great central location.
