The breakfasts have a good variety of both western and asian food, and there is a great view. Service is good too.

The restaurant looks out across the bay (excellent sunset view). We ate dinner there and the options for vegetarians quite limited. The actual food was average and he service quite chaotic. It was a weekend (and public holiday) and the staff struggled to cope with the large numbers of guests. This was then compounded when a politician and his entourage... More

Tranquil and breezy, this place has an amazing view of the ocean and is surrounded by nature giving one a literal breath of fresh air. Menu is definitely overpriced but c'mon, when do you get to dine in front of the ocean listenting to the sound of nature? Food isn't fantastic but its not bad either. Its pretty good, a... More

Hit happy hour so cocktails were cheap, 2.25. Wine not on happy hour but large glass for 4.50 (you can get it cheaper elsewhere but in my experience you get much less, so maybe not really more expensive). Beautiful setting! We decided to stay for dinner and had the margarita pizza which was excellent. Staff was awesome! Maybe more expensive... More

This is one of the most expensive hotel, restaurants in Kep. They have nice rooms, nice bar but the service is very very slow, plus price is too expensive.

We visited because we'd heard off friends that it's a stunning location, and it is. The views are spectacular. Sadly we found the food to be pretty average and overpriced.

To have a break from crab and seafood we just fancied some western food for lunch. Having been to The Secret 2 years earlier we decided to go back for a burger and toasted sandwich. Last time the food really matched the views, however this time they were a complete contrast. The menu mentioned a Cubano Sandwich, but what appeared... More

We popped up here for the buffet breakfast. Priced at $9 pp it represents incredible value for money. A range of western and Asian foods from bacon and eggs to fried noodles plus a spring roll and pho station. A range of beverages and fruits plus their own baked bread and pastries I'm glad we were hungry. All that in... More

Clean restaurant, well situated near the Kep National Park. Food was just OK - nothing special. We weren't staying at the Veranda, and not sure it's worth coming as an outside guesr

An excellent choice of fish and seafood, as you would expect, but also some nice meat dishes. A very comprehensive selection on the menu, good prices, too. Monday to Friday they have Happy Hour - draft beer for 75 cents. Staff attentive and service always prompt. Overall a lovely experience.
