This place has the best Mexican food in Cambodia at very reasonable prices and especially with draft beer at only $.50c and a fabulous frozen margarita at only $1.50. Big portion sizes with a great selection of mouth watering dishes to choose from. Will defo be visiting the restaurant in phenom penh : )

The food and drinks here are yummy and reasonably priced. Viva stays open late and is also open during the day, so you can go whenever the desire for yum Mexican food overtakes you. It's fairly well priced too which makes it a winner. I personally wouldn't get the margaritas though - they're not that great.

A basic simple hotel for a low price. It has wifi and aircon. The rooms are ok but basic. But they are rather big. Overall it is a decent hotel for the money it cost. They include a nice breakfast in their Mexican restaurant. And the restaurant have giod food and good drinks for a low price

Enjoyed my meal for a break from Asian cuisine. Draft beer for $1. Ceiling fans, good corner location for people watching at sunset. Cane furniture, nice orange paintwork, free wi-fi, clear menus in English, clean, attentive staff, worked for me.

Been coming to Siem Reap for a few years now and I always like coming here. First things first...as a previous reviewer noted - you are ordering Mexican food in a 3rd world Asian country 10,000 miles from Mexico. If you can accept that, your expectations will be in check and you'll enjoy your meal. The service was pleasant and... More

Food here is worth the money. I ate here 3 times during my trip to Siem Reap. All other restaurants didnt make me as happy as this restaurant. The mexican food here is great and I had the best "Amok" here in Siem Reap. The amok is one of the must taste dishes here in Cambodia

I was very surprised with the excellent service and quality of food and drinks in VIVA restaurant. The restaurant is aimed at Mexican cuisine, but don't miss good quality khmer food and tasty long drinks. Ideal for meeting with friends after daylong visit Angkor sights. And I can not forget: friendly and smiling staff...

Very good value mexican restaurant, $27usd for 1 starter & 2 main courses plus 2 beers & 2 glasses of red wine. The service was excellent & the staff friendly, which is opposite to comments made by other Trip Advisor reviewers. My wife had chicken fajitas & I had a beef burrito, both of which were very tasty. Our nacho/cheese/jalepeno... More
