Twenty Three Bistro

Top choice international in Kampot

Hot damn, there's now a twice-baked cheddar soufflé in Kampot, and this is the place that loses money making it for you. We're not sure how the owners manage it, but this seems to be haute cuisine on clearance, from expats with hefty experience in world-class restaurants and a range of European cuisines. Their cocktails slay, too.

Also recommended: the smoked mackerel paté and the sea bass, which comes in a ravishing moat of pureed cauliflower, capers, brown butter and lime.
