We had papaya salad which was amazing and a pork schnitzel. The schnitzel didn't look like the photo but we got there late and they were probably getting ready to close up. Very was cold draft $1. Twice the price of pub street but it's quieter, out the way and was a nice walk there along the river

Tasty, affordable and generous portions. We had a chicken schnitzel and fish fillet with accompanying sides. Way too much food for two! Drinks are cheap if you stick to local beers; if you go for the Belgian beers then they're understandably more expensive.

By far best western food in town had a limited menu as owner on holiday but still plenty to choose from, stand in manager was very helpfull and catered for all our needs Great selection of Belgium beer and definitely the coldest Angkor Beer in town. Make this a must when in Siem Reap

I have been going to this restaurant nearly every week since retiring to Siem Reap. For $10 US you get a schnitzel that over hangs a normal dinner plate, salad, sauce and a beer. best value in town

We had an amazing dinner at 'The Crocodile bistro'. The food was a duplicate of what we eat in Belgium. You won't walk out being hungry and on top of that they have a whole set of Belgian Beers. The staff is really kind and helpful, we even had a Nice talk about the wonderful country of Cambodja. Thank you... More

We walked there, to get some Schnitzel after 5 weeks of asian food. We really thought, the long and dark way to this restaurant wouldn't be worth it. But we were wrong: The Schnitzel and frites were really good, something I didn't expect from cambodia. The portions were really big too and I think the price is more than justified.

Tasty and huge portions coupled with an excellent range of Belgian beers, far from the crowds of pub street. I come for dinner here every time I'm in Siem Reap and it never disappoints.
