Riverside Bistro is situated in an old colonial building with lovely comfortable furniture and is a good place to people watch and enjoy the views of the Tonle Sap.
There is indoor and outdoor dining and they also have a pool table, TV's and a shop selling antiques.
We have been to Riverside Bistro many times now and have really enjoyed the food, especially their English Breakfast.
Its huge, 2 eggs any style, bacon, grilled tomatoes, baked beans, bubble & squeak, sausage and toast, all for $4.
The pancakes are pretty impressive as well.
273A Sisowath Quay (corner of Street 148)
There are many outdoor restaurants along the riverfront. They attract many tourists allday long and well into the night. The food was quite good here. We started with chicken spring rolls and Pat tried the local dish Amok.They combined fish with other vegetables, and it all blended together.It was pretty good. I had beef with coconut curry . We each had a large Ankor Beer . Dinner and drinks for two $25.00
Frequent the place a coupla times a week, main thing is the friendly crew. Free pool and you can sit in front (dining area) or at the back part of the building (more to pool & drinks area). So it's discreet, depending on the company you have for the evening.
Food fare ranges from local/Khmer, Thai to western and pricing is reasonable ($4~$7 for solo meal) and local beer's about $1 a pint/mug.
From personal observation, this has got to be one of the biggest establishments in terms of seating capacity in the whole riverfront row of pub/restaurants.
Favorite Dish: Swedish meatball is nicely coated with a layer of cheese and the potato is just rightly cooked.
Although it costs you some USD6 / head, it worthy to sit on the second floor balcony and enjoy the good view of Tonle Sap & Sisowath Quay.
