This family owned restaurant is one for the books! The dishes were delicious and the restaurant itself had a great atmosphere. Even if it isn't as lively certain nights, it's still worth the experience. Though, the accommodations are not highly recommended, you absolutely MUST try the restaurant!

We had dinner at Chez Claude during our stay in Sihanouikville. The French-style food was OK considering that the restaurant is located in Cambodia. A very interesting feature is that you are pulled up the hill via a tractor driven cable-care to get to the restaurant from the street below. The food is however rather expensive.

A very cute family restaurant. Don't get mislead by slightly rusty look. You will definitely fall in love with the people, they are a fantastic crowd! Try the scallops and fish tar-tar.

We had an absolutely amazing meal at Chez Claude during a short trip to Sihanoukville. The staff were really friendly and gave great advice about what they had on the menu. Between us we had the scallops and the fish in a clay pot - all was clearly very fresh the flavours of both were just AMAZING. We sat out... More

The food? Fresh, good, tasteful! A bit pricy though but you get a fantastic view and sunset for free ;-) The good food is a bit of a surprise because you wouldn't expect that immediately in a place like this. This place is so unique and weird, that it is a must to visit. To enter you have to walk... More

It was the best meal we ate in cambodia. Amazing view and really adventurous climb up to the hill. The service was excellent and if we knew about this place sooner we would be eating there every day while staying in Sihanoukville.

This restaurant is off the beaten track but definitely worth a visit. The young chef has an incredible talent, the food is beautifully presented and very tasty, particularly the scallops. The chef was also very interesting to talk to. A great family business. Thank you for a great experience!

I was just reminded of this place - what an amazing experience. We were dropped in a quiet parking spot next to a tractor. Turns out this was our way to the restaurant on a fairly basic cable car... The owner effectively opened and cooked for us (out of season) - he was entertaining without intruding, and the food was... More

After the shock of the tractor cable car, we found a quiet dark restaurant. I thought it was closed, but then the owner came out with his dogs. He was so happy to see us, as it was low season and very quite. His staff snapped into action and produced some of the best food we had in Sihanoukville. Try... More
