The Square 24 is hidden away on a side street off Wat Bo Road, a lazy stone's throw from the river, but what a great find. One enters through the gateway in the wall into a beautiful covered-courtyard restaurant, al fresco dining as it should be in the tropics. We visited for dinner midweek in the off season, so we almost had the whole place - and their gracious staff - to ourselves, a table for two on the edge of the beautifully landscaped and lighted outdoor dining area. There was a party of about 20 just finishing up when we arrived, but the tables are placed such as they were never intrusive, just adding some extra life to an otherwise quiet dinner. The manager came and spent several minutes with us, shooting the breeze over the food, the concept of his restaurant and the reason for his tongue-in-cheek-titled menu section "Just in case ...", catering to western palates perhaps wanting a break from Khmer cooking. I took him up on the idea and enjoyed a duck breast with rosemary sauce and sauteed mushrooms, while my wife enjoyed a very tasty fish amok, all washed down by generous fruit cocktails and cold beers. Altogether a great place for couples or crowds, well priced and worth hunting out.
