After visiting this place for dinner on our first day we came back another two times! We loved coming for drinks before dinner, watching the sunset, playing some pool, before enjoying dinner looking out to the sea. The first night we watched the most epic rain/lightening storm, at one point the power even flicked off! We miss it already being back in London!

Kimly Restaurant

Reviewed By 8snowflake8 - Asia

The fried seafood (shrimp, squid and crab) in Kampot green pepper sauce was delicious. Portions labeled "small" are enough for two people to share. Our small plate of fried morning glory would have been enough for three people.

If, like us, you’re stuck in a resort in Kep where the breakfast is dreadful, head up to the Veranda Resort’s “The Secret” restaurant. They serve a great buffet breakfast every day for just $9 a head. Huge variety of food and great service. Breakfast is served between 6.45 and 10am and they replenish the buffet regularly. Highly recommended.

La Baraka Lounge Bar and Restaurant

Reviewed By Marcel N

Delicious dinner place with good cocktail's.!!
Local prices.In the evenings supervised by the french owner..which result we really could see on our plates.!!
We tested different places over weeks..and with those low prices & friendly stuff in my opinion the most worthy place to enjoy.
I will not recommend the pizza here, which is improving in these day's..but consider it is not "italian pizza". Visited today a "real italian" restaurant. But i would not call it decent pizza either..
We were eating mainly the local amok / green pepper seafood dishes and on top "curry barramundi" which are all divine in my view.

The Strand

Reviewed By luxbrain

The best restaurant we have tried in Kep: Extremely romantic setting by the see with great-looking wood furniture, beautifully lit; staff were very professional and friendly; the food which I would qualify as khmer/western fusion was delightful, with fresh ingredients, great texture and nice presentation (although I don't normally like desserts, the cardamom cake was mind blowing); portions are quite large, we were more than full after starter, main and shared dessert; do try their passion fruit mojito, very refreshing. Although a bit on the expensive side (by Cambodian standards), you should check this one out, if you want to spend a special night!

Le Bout du Monde

Fine Asean French cuisine for a break after a walk in the National park or a romantic dinner at sunset with view overlooking Thailand bay. Breton pancakes and vegetarian meals available at anytime of the day.

Reviewed By Maesi V - Bangkok, Thailand

Small and cosy restaurant, right after the entrance to Kep National Park.
Friendly staff, fantastic food and a glorious view of the sunset.
I had a Khmer Curry with shrimps... it was freshly prepared and came in a beautiful folded banana leaf.
I can recommend this place to anyone staying in Kep!

Reviewed By Dominik S

It's very simple. If you are in kep, just go there.
We had a chocolate chocolate cake (picture) and a peanut butter chocolate cake together with lime juice.
It was really delicious!
The atmosphere was so relaxing. We felt like on a small bakery island.
The two owners are such a friendly couple. It's not the "put on kindness" which you often see in restaurants. They are so pure friendly that you feel at home within 1 minute.
