After a relaxing stay at Independence Hotel, I want to share the details about our visit to Sunset Restaurant their recently opened sea-front restaurant.The restaurant is located on the rocks at the beach, with each table having a view of the beautiful Cambodian coastline. The windows are huge giving an airy and light atmosphere to the space.Views
Located on the pristine beach at the meeting point of vivid blue water and lush tropical forest, the restaurant has a relaxed luxurious vibe. The interior design lends itself to being part of the surrounding nature and each table has incredible views of the small islands in the distance.Given the name, it’s pretty obvious that this location is perfect for enjoying sundowners and taking in the sunset scene.Unfortunately, when we visited the weather wasn’t the greatest – it was super cloudy, meaning we didn’t get to see a clear sunset. However, I can attest that Cambodian sunsets are incredibly beautiful and it’s just another excuse to return here again to enjoy it fully!
The menu offers a selection of dishes including traditional Khmer cuisine, utilising the freshest local ingredients.When you’re having dinner by the ocean, you have to indulge in seafood (that’s my rule, at least) so I had the lobster for my main. It was truly delicious and the accompanying sauce really enhanced the flavour of the meal.
For dessert, I simply couldn’t choose so I ordered two options. A green tea creme brûlée which intrigued me and a chocolate dessert which sounded too good not to try.
With a picturesque beachside setting, delicious food and great service, I thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Sunset Restaurant. I also visited during the day to try out some of their cocktails with the relaxing sound of waves in the background and a cool breeze, it was the perfect place to escape the heat and chill out.
If you find yourself in Sihanoukville, don’t hesitate to visit!
