La Croisette is not only a great restaurant – it is an institution along Cambodia’s world famous promenade lining the world’s only river that flows in two directions: the Tonle Sap. And the mighty Mekong, which takes a turn flowing towards Vietnam just outside.
Everyone in Phnom Penh remembers Sambo the elephant, who came daily to receive a tropical vitamin platter on her way home from Wat Phnom, where she took photos with tourists.
From 2001 until her departure to an elephant sanctuary in 2016, Phnom Penh’s most famous elephant, Sambo, stopped by La Croisette every day to receive her fruit platter.
Located on one of the Riverside’s most popular and central corners, La Croisette has evolved from a small restaurant in 1997 to a venue offering a prime selection of food, coffee and drinks. Its seating and ambiance make it a go-to for Cambodians, expatriates and visitors to Phnom Penh. Since our first days we deliver the highest quality food and services via generous servings to our customers.
