Signature cafe (Kep review not Kampot): Pretty poor (review for Kep not Kampot)
Signature cafe on the main square by the beach isn't anything special. We were after breakfast and stopped here but for $3 I got a mouthful of museli and tea. It doubles up as a jewellery shop too and the guy was on his own so service was slow. But he was a nice polite guy and tried his best but just felt it wasn't vfm.
Holy Crab: Crab! (Review for Kep not Kampot)
Holy Crab (see what they did there) is located on the crab strip next to the crab market.
Service is good and the menu quite extensive although we were always just after crab.
I've not eaten crab direct from the crab itself for a number of years and I had forgotten how messy and how slow and annoying it can be! And how little meat you actually get maloti not such good vfm. I had the garlic deep fried crab which was delicious and that's why crab is worth it! The taste. It came with potatoes and veg (ordered separately). Our total bill for the two of us, both on crab, was $23, with just a pot of tea as a drink. So, way over budget for this part of the world but when in Kep....
Chau Chau: Friendly staff(review for Kep not...
Chau chau is one of the many shacks selling seafood and western food along by the crab market. We were enticed to enter by the lovely friendly owner Anie. We stopped just for a cuppa tea initially and sat on their terrace overlooking the sea and islands. Then the rain came just as we were leaving so we stopped and sat at the bar chatting to her with a rum and coke ($3) and a shake. I guess it's hard to tell the difference between all these cafés along this strip but we wiggled this one out due to Anies personality.
Various: Great places in Kampot
Plenty of places to drink. We started after our meL in Veronica's , right on the river. Nice place with wooden carved seats and nice atmosphere. Before 7, 2 for 1 cocktails at $3.5 for the two.
Then to Madi bar, a bit further down on the river. Still happy hour till 8 so just $2 a cocktail. Very nice easy going vibe here.
Finally to Rikitikitavi just a bit further along. $3 for a White wine on the terrace over looking the river. A bit lacking an atmosphere but decent service.
Sailing club: Stunning sunset (review for Kep not...
The sailing club is a great spot to have a drink for sunset. The pier here makes for some great sunset photos and the ambience is spot on with chill out music. Happy hour lasts till 7pm and half price cocktails so it works out $2 a drink which was perfect to watch the red sky light up.

Kampot Off The Beaten Path
the high point of our trip... upstream...
call Bart, he'll come and pick you up on his boat.
and get ready for an afternoon on the river; he knows everybody, every wave, every tree... he'll show you nice places to swim, or have a sugar cane/lime refreshing dring, or relax on a deserted beach, or gasp at a magical sunset.
