Went with a friend based on reviews. So worth it! The food was so delicious; fresh, seasonal and well-cooked, we couldn't have asked for better. Service was good, prices very reasonable.

Excellent restaurant with great food and atmosphere, indoor and outdoor. A must see in Siem Reap, and Martine, the owner, is a peace of French sunshine. All good.

Kanell isn't exactly off the beaten track as it's along Makara Street but if you don't know where it is, you might miss it and that would be a shame. At the back of this traditional house in the garden is this gem of a place. Tables in different areas, it is cosy and lovely. The menu offers something for... More

The place is perfect for a romantic dinner as the tables are quite isolated from each other. The food is very good and the service is nice and efficient so everything is there to enjoy a very nice dinner

A very hot day noon last week when I returned hotel feeling hungry and tired, so we looked for food nearby and found this restaurant rated 4, then checked in. I barely remembered what we had, but I felt I must write down what I got: The price is high, even higher than in the historic sites, besides, we need... More

Our hotel, Pavillon D'Orient, recommended this restaurant & booked it for us. When we arrived, we were met & shown round the back of the building to the garden, where we had a gazebo for the 2 of us. I was a bit ashamed to order off the "Western" menu, as I intended only eating Asian cuisisne, but the special... More

All is OK here. Beautiful garden, house, food... Cambodian dishes prepared in a more balanced way are, for western people, more interesting. Prices over average but not Crazy...it s not Street food.! Western dishes are more expensive as are also desserts at 5 dollars. Credit cards accepted.

Our hotel told us about this restuarant for which we were very grateful. It has delicious French/Cambodian food which you eat in a beautiful garden. Each table is in its own thatched pavilion with a chandelier or Chinese lantern. The pavilions are spaced so far apart that you can easily imagine that you have the whole place to yourself. The...
