–Marshall: Rey and Joe have a beautiful home, the downstairs of which is fashioned as a restaurant. The four-course meal, with wine or cocktail and coffee or tea, is an ample gourmet meal, prepared deliciously and attractively using authentic, healthy methods. Very well priced for the entire experience. Such a beautiful and quiet space very near Parque San Sebastian, everything about the experience makes Rey’s an unforgettable experience!
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.
Address: Coronel Talbot, near Parque San Sebastian
–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 swordfish, 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!

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!
Wednesday – Sunday 1 PM – Last Seating 8:30 PM, San Sebastian Park next to the museum of modern art
