We were staying in the hotel below this rooftop restaurant/bar. On the fifth floor of La Maison d’Ambre it offers great views and is open to the public, not just hotel guests. Had had food here and drinks a few times, it is very reasonably priced for the food was good. We saw a some sunsets from up there too,... More

I stay in this hotel regularly. The breakfast is very good and so is the lunch menu. I have only eaten dinner there once and the food was overcooked. So it might have been a bad night, the options are mainly French type for the dinner menu.

On top of the hotel L'Maison D'Ambre, fifth floor. The decor is very modern and funky, nice furniture and lighting. It's in a dark dingy area of town however. Service was quite good, but the prices are very high for Phnom Penh. OK for an opening drink, then move on to somewhere with more reasonable prices.

This restaurant/bar is on the fifth floor of La Maison D Ambre but is open to the public, not just hotel guests. It is very reasonably priced for excellent food and drinks. We saw a great sunset from here too, in fact it was much better than some bars on the river that claim to have won awards for their... More

This place is something else. Normally we just go out for dinner in the evening but we loved this place so much we kept coming back. The atmospehere is all about the '70s and they tuned the music to it also. (Just a notch up so you really have that lounge feeling) The chef cooks some great food here, he... More

Stayed at the hotel so it was super convenient for food and drinks. The service was fast and reliable. The food was good, although I found the portions to be a bit small considering the price (specifically the breakfast menu) and a great vibe!

We had a couple of times food, but mainly go there for the view with the drinks. A good choice of cocktails and evening drinks, and well decorate bar. Extremely well designed place from the entry to the top. We often go there after we had food in town.

Nicely located close to the river and several of the bar streets this high class, French style restaurant also serves nice Khmer dishes. The rooftop setting is not overlooking the river but has a nice view and an often welcome breeze. Low key decor and friendly staff, very nice menu and excellent specialities of the day. Highly recommended.

I was a guest in the hotel and would come up to the roof for evening drinks. Whilst the prices of the food a a little expensive for what you get, I would definitely recommend the milkshakes. The decor is quite nice, and the service is quite attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend coming up for a drink!
