Excellent place to grab a bite of nice food in downtown Battambang. The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor, the food options go from international Spanish Tapas to nice pasta and salads and some local dishes too. The staff were extremely friendly all the way. On the down floor (entry level) there is a boutique shop of local crafts... More

Only stopped for a snack but nearly didn't as the place is hidden upstairs at the back of a clothes / jewellery shop. Good ethics behind the shop below and the cafe. Nice staff and decent snacks.

I've spent a time in Battambang and without any doubt The Lonely Tree Cafe is the best restaurant in the place!! Amazing food (I specially recommend dumpling mushrooms, LTC salad, coconut shrimps and lime pie for dessert) The environment is cozy and the service great... So advisable!! In addition, all the profits are invested in social projects in the province

I,ve been there for dinner. The place is so cool, the food was very good also. The Gazpacho (typical Spanish tomato soup) and Spanish omelet were incredible (I'm Spanish so I know what I'm saying!!), and the desserts were extraordinary, we order the chocolate foundant and the lime pie. Also know that all the profits are used for divers social... More

Our expectations were not met, The staff tried hard seem to lack a litle knowledge and experience. Entrees and mains all came out together and to be honest they were quite bland. There are only two balcony tables so the rest of us missed out on fresh air and a view of the street. Better options elsewhere.

Nice position up above their shop. We had a chicken burger which was good and thai basil chicken also good. It's food done well, and the ethos of the place is nice. We had a nice time there, not necessarily a place I would return to with a short time in battambang as there's lots of other nice places to... More

Owner is to cheap to turn on fans and when you do they follow right behind and turn them off. Not recommended.
