Barrio is one of the oldest among the restaurants and bars in Siem Reap, where you can expect a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The owner, Patrick, is always behind the bar ready to chat with customers in French or English. The restaurant is the kind of place where friends like to meet, eat and have a drink.
A smooth blend of Latin, French and reggae music provides the acoustic ambience. The menu features French cuisine as well as Khmer cooking, and dining is in the quiet and relaxing patio. While many drop by Barrio regularly for the French cuisine, plenty make use of their air-conditioned dining rooms to cool off with nibbles.
