L'Annexe in Siem Reap

Hanno is right.

It has to be admitted that L'Annexe is utterly brilliant - the ambience, the service and the food.

The prices are high but so is the standard.

Two starters, two main courses - lamb chops and chicken breast - and two small bottles of sparkling wine (not Champagne but good enough to be Asti Spumante) came to $65.

If one were rich enough, it would be amusing to eat roughly-comparable meals at every Frenchy-food establishment in Siem Reap and report in full.

And one strong negative - NO cheap wine.

The usual rule-of-thumb is that wine in a restaurant is twice the price of the same wine in a restaurant but L'Annexe had NO cheap
wine on the menu at all - unlike BARRIO and DANCING FROG

There is a golden rule in the restaurant business: They eat you poor and they drink you rich. :beer3:
There are people who cannot imagine that there are other ways of life than their own life. :facepalm:

CORRECTION:

The rule of thumb is that wine in a restaurant costs twice the Lucky Supermarket price.

Depends very much on what kind of restaurant. Places I have worked in cost was more like 20%.
