What happens when two of Siem Reap's sexiest and hospitable French expats join forces to open a restaurant and bar?
Owners and very good friends of ours, Renaud Fichet (front of house) and Pascal Schmit (chef) are famous in our books for their great wine, excellent food (especially the foie gras), and great service. Most locals and tourists agree.
Well priced French wines
Amuse Chilled Potato Soup with Salmon Caviar
My Fresh Sea Bass with vegetable risotto and spinach
yup Siem Reap has come a long way from the days when you couldn't even get fresh cream
Hock's extremely large t-bone steak
note: not all portions are this big Pascal was trying to show off
After dinner wander over to the garden bar, say hello to Oscar the friendly dog/wolf and have a drink at the bar. Hang around long enough and you'll usually get lots of inside temple tips, generous pours and maybe even a good night kiss.
