Recommendation for cooking with Rey- Cambodian restaurant

If you want an experience out of the ordinary, then you must go to the “Cooking with Rey- Cambodian restaurant”. The setting is in a beautiful home on Coronel Talbot near San Sebastian Parque. The hosts, chef Rey and her charming husband Joe, quickly make you feel comfortable and at home.


Each meal of Southeast Asia origin consists of an appetizer, soup or salad, the entree, wine or another beverage of your choosing, and dessert. The food you will agree tastes absolutely delicious and is presented ever so artistically. There I relaxed- satisfied and content, thinking about the next time I will go back there.

100% agree! Both Rey and Joe are wonderful hosts.

We went there yesterday for lunch (3rd time for me) and I finally got my duck! Fabulous! Wonderful leftovers to take home. My honey (who is a celiac) had a surf and turf meal with NY steak and salmon. Rey and Joe make sure that his food is OK for him to eat, which is greatly appreciated. The icing on the cake was finally getting to try the Cambodian dessert. Oh my, was that good! Wish I could post pictures…

This has become our favorite place for a special meal when we are in Cuenca. I have already tried the sword fish, the salmon, and now the duck. The egg rolls… wow. Those are such a great appetizer! The fried rice is a must try too. And Joe makes a chocolate torte that needs to be called “Death by chocolate”. So good and rich! Heavenly for a chocolate lover and Gluten Free!

Everything is made fresh as ordered; takes times and it is certainly worth it. We do not go there in any hurry. The portions are plentiful. The course is just perfect.

Chef Rey has come down and say hello and check in every time I have been there. It is so nice to get such personal attention!

The place is spotless clean, lovely decorated, and very “homey”. It is such a pleasant relaxing meal experience. We plan to return with some very dear friends next time around. It is just such a wonderful experience, that we want to share it with them!

Recommendation for Cooking with Rey…
excellent, Cambodian-style restaurant

Rey’s husband and gracious maitre d, Joe, welcomed us into what must be one of the most beautiful, surprise settings behind the unstated elegance of the upscale entrances on this quiet street near San Sebastián plaza. And, that was the beginning of our 2 ½ hour culinary adventure. Brisk gin and tonic (real tonic and Bombay Sapphire), sweet and spicy shrimp, well done (in many ways) thick sea bass filet, and traditional Cambodian dessert. Opened 8 weeks ago, but with the ambiance and cuisine of a well-established “must eat there” restaurant with a bright future.

Recommendation for Cooking With Rey, restaurant
At the restaurant, Cooking With Rey, on Sunday afternoon was a delicious introduction to the art and taste of Cambodian cuisine. The “home restaurant” in San Sebastian Plaza is most attractive, with pleasant music, the collaborating atmosphere of co-owner Joe, and cooking done by Chef Rey.

Reservations are necessary, meal choices are limited, but superbly prepared. We plan to return!

Luisa Nelson: Thank you for making my birthday so special and memorable. My sea bass was delicious from beginning to end! The dessert absolutely grand AND the special drink was out of this world! To top it off, you were both two of the most welcoming and friendly hosts. Muchisimo gracias.
