Here is a bar restaurant which does not hesitate reduce these amounts and increase the price of disrespectful ways. I ordered a bacon burger offered in the menu ... What was my surprise to receive an almost empty plate (see photo) for 4.50 USD, not at all the same as the photo displayed in their menu ... the waiter seemed... More

It has been awhile since I last visited, since then this part of the beach has been redeveloped. Much for the better. The bars have been moved back, giving more beach area to sit, eat, drink and enjoy the views, especially at sunset. Lars (who is Swedish and his wife Latin (Cambodian) are still there. The food ranges through Western,... More

I have been here a few times now, this place is one of the best on the beach, friendly service and without any problems. The food is well prices and the BBQ in the evening is the best on the beach in my opinion. I will go again when in Sihanoukville, nice place.

Had the BBQ pork - $4 well spent !! The food is fast - and you get to sit on the white sand beach and watch the sun set as you eat. Don't Come expecting a la carte - just come for an excellent time.

The local authority has come around a bit, the thing lacking are umbrellas on the beach. That being said, I have come here everyday for a week and love it. Staff is attentive, food of high quality and cannot complain about the fantastic seaviews.

A lovely bar on Ochheuteal beach. Super-friendly staff who serve you cold drinks and great food. Don´t miss the barbeque in the evening. I always come back here when I am in Sihanoukville, sooo ... relaxing.

Nice place at the beach. Ok food and friendly Swedish owner. Good service and staff. One of the best beach BBQ:s at evenings. But I feel sorry for the owner that the government made some very stupid regulations. The restaurants are not allowed anymore to have chairs, tables and sunbeds at the beach, which is so very stupid.

One of my major failings is that once I enjoy the food and hospitality in one certain restaurant I keep returning there time and time again and ignore the other nearby restaurants which no doubt also serve excellent food. And excellent food is certainly served up at the Purple Bar Restaurant located on Ocheuteal Beach. The first evening enjoyed a... More

I have been here a few times in the day time, great to sit on the beach with a chocolate shake, coffee chocolate shake as well, I did have a chicken fried rice but was not impressed, it was so just under average so did not eat there again, but I would go back to sit and have a drink.
