The four courses Virgil cooked for us were well balanced, a wonderful combination of flavours and textures. Not to be missed.

If you have any special dietary requirements then just let Virgil know what they are.

We tried this restaurant once, because we stayed in the resort. The food was really good and we ended up eating there almost every night of our stay in Siem reap.

The cook who is also the owner of the resort is inspired by Asian and western cuisine. His meals are really unique and excellent.

The place might be hard to find at night but it is definitely worth it !

Along with Abacus, this earns top marks among Siem Reap's many restaurants. This may seem somewhat ironic, as one reviewer actually compares The Cockatoo unfavorably with Abacus. Actually they're both excellent, in completely different ways. Whereas the French cuisine at Abacus is prepared by a seasoned chef, the food here is a completely personal creation of Virgil, who is not a cook by profession. But that's exactly what makes the food so good and interesting - it's never business as usual. The changing menu is full of surprises, and the unusual combination of ingredients, as well as Western and Asian influences, makes the food unique. As for the ambience - it''s unbeatable! A truly romantic setting for dinner - upstairs on the semi-open verandah where you have a stunning view of the pool and gardens or down in the poolside gardens where you sit under lanterns hanging from a tree. A veritable feast for the senses!
