1. Cuisine Wat Damnak
Opened in 2011 by chef Johannes Rivieres, Cuisine Wat Damnak represents the culmination of Rivieres’s knowledge of Khmer cuisine, while still offering many creative surprises. Having earned his stripes and made his name at Hotel de la Paix, Rivieres pioneered the hotel’s tasting menu. At Cuisine Wat Damnak, he continues to tailor two tasting menus a week, bringing many exciting flavor combinations to his diners. Here, the focus is not on traditional Cambodian dishes, but on sourcing local seasonal produce, such as edible flowers, kuy fruit and fish found only in the Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake. This makes for a unique dining experience showcasing the best in contemporary Khmer gastronomy.

L’Angelo Italian Restaurant is situated in Le Méridien Angkor Hotel on Vithei Charles de Gaulle, which puts it in the fortunate position of being the closest restaurant to Angkor Wat. However, this is by far not the only reason to eat at L’Angelo. Serving an interesting blend of modern Italian cuisine with an Asian twist, and the finest collection of wines in the city, this uber-trendy eatery guarantees a first-class fine dining experience. It also provides a comfortable and cosmopolitan environment after a long day of exploring the temples, which makes for a pleasing juxtaposition.

10. Le Malraux
Le Malraux is a bistro situated in the heart of Siem Reap, next to the Old Market, in a wonderful art deco building, a former brewery that has been quirkily decorated with an eclectic French-Indochine antique look and plenty of hanging orchids. The French influence is also clear in the simple but refined menu conceived by head chef David Martin, a famous television chef in France who joined the restaurant after meeting the owner, Christophe Boussiron, on a trip to Cambodia in 2009. The comforting classics such as confit of duck legs and salmon carpaccio can easily get the better of their equivalents served in Europe, and the Cambodian dishes are also cooked with class and creativity. With its excellent but affordable menu, well-stocked bar and convivial Gallic charm, Le Malraux is a great place to take refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city center.
