We had a pleasant enough lunch with a good selection of Cambodian dishes. We did make the mistake of ordering a wine, which clearly the waiting staff had very little understanding of. In other respects the serving staff were excellent attentive and polite. The food was very well presented and tasty but not exceptional.

My local Cambodian friend asked me if I'd like to eat at his favorite Cambodian restaurant. Sure I said, and off we went to Terasse des Elephants Restaurant. First of the old French colonial style gives this restaurant a great ambience with a unique look. More importantly, it was clean. My friend ordered two main dishes and one appetizer. The... More

We had lunch at the Terrasse des Elephants Restaurant and overall is was meh--with relatively high prices for Siem Reap. It's a cool old building, but the service was slow and the food wasn't great. I'd recommend you skip it.

After waiting for over an hour (the waitress had forgotten to submit our order to the kitchen and didn't think of doing so when asked after 45 mins), we got cold food. I'll give it one star as the manager gracefully did not charge for the food. A shame, because the restaurant looks very nice.

THE GOOD: It was only NZ$70 a night so was a good bargain. They had a good cooked-to-order free breakfast (you could choose from Asian, American, Fitness or Health breakfast). The wifi was fast and reliable (I loved that you only had to log in once and it just remembered you for your entire stay). It's right in town and... More

The food scene of Siem Reap beyond luxury hotels proposals is really poor. So many tourists drive the quality expectation down and foreign food is really poor but pricy. Then comes local scene, and always the same pb : extremely difficult to differenciate the average from good, but at least rarely bad, as for 90% of italian/french/thai/vietnamese/indian/japanese/... restaurants. So Terrasse... More

I'm staying at the hotel that sits on top of this restaurant and decide to give it a try. The service staff is AMAZING with great smiles. The dish tastes quite good. So why don't I want to come here again? The seafood with Kampot pepper contains 3 (three) precooked prawns and 3 (three) SMALL pieces of Squid. Yes, the... More

Took way too long for me to get around to writing a review this fine establishment truly deserves. We just stumbled upon this gem in the middle of fantastic Siem Reap last June and dropped in for a quick bite. What was so enticing was the colonial atmosphere: We ate there in the daytime, but at night you could probably... More

Reviews of this restaurant on here seem very mixed but we saw nothing to complain about. We chose it because it was away from the craziness of pub street (if we wanted a party town we would have gone to magaluf not cambodia) and was a lovely old colonial building. It was bizarrely quite for 7pm; we were the only... More

We had no idea where to go and walked by here twice before deciding to go and dine. Well it was worth the find for sure.
