Rosewood – top of the town

rosewood-phnom-penh-urban-flavours

Level 35, Rosewood Hotel at the Vattanac Tower is the home of Brasserie Louis, a stylish, contemporary French restaurant with stunning views across the burgeoning cityscape and its mystic rivers; the Tonle, the Bassac and the mighty Mekong.

The Ambience oozes a contemporary  elegance, the views are breathtaking, the cuisine is modern French and of the highest quality. Prices for starters range from $10 to $15 USD and Mains from $20 up to about $30. There are also some outstanding sharing plates, Cote de Boeuf, Chicken Fricassee and a whole Boston Lobster Thermidor from $89, $36 & $68 USD respectively. There is also a very good selection of classic Khmer dishes.

Service is of a very high standard here, polished, impeccably mannered, well trained and eager to please, with a welcome air of professionalism.

The wine list is of course French exclusively, which is something of an opportunity missed but, it is extensive and well curated by top Cambodian Sommelier Eden Gnean, who is also able to make wonderful pairing suggestions.

Brasserie Louis presents Phnom Penh’s high-society with a new and wonderful fine dining experience and it is literally head and shoulders above the crowd.
