We celebrated my fiancé's birthday at Van's and for her it was the first time there. It was truly a memorable experience, Great menu, so much choice of great dishes, that it was almost impossible to choose. The staff gave us an excellent spot outside. The weather and service was excellent, as well as the food. Very well done, everything.... More

Stunning location. Definitely one for a romantic evening. Good food although a little rich for my taste, but to be fair that should be expected with French cooking. Very good service.

If you love French cuisine you will love Vans, the food is just tres bon, and the decor just beautiful. This is not a cheap place to dine in, yet if you want a treat you certainly will not leave disappointed.

Called into Van's with another couple on a recent visit to Phnom Penh. We chose the limited selection menu at the back of the folder and enjoyed a terrific meal. Although limited, the choices included snails, beef and pork. Coupled with a fine choice of wine and good efficient service, it was a memorable night. Well done Van's!

I dined at Vans about a week ago, and found the food delicious, the wait staff very friendly and the price quite reasonable for the excellent food they present to you. I will definitely, go back and enjoy their great food , while I'm staying here in Phnom Penh.

Van's is a great restaurant to visit for a fantastic breakfast before going to visit the city. Very child friendly offering colouring for the kids allowing you to enjoy the papers in peace whilst also offering a truly gastronomic experience.

I read some of the review that the steak was good, but I didn't experience that during my lunch. Perhaps dinner was cooked by a different chef, I am not sure. I ordered the business lunch, USD 20 for appetizer, main, dessert and coffee. It is value for money. I chose beef fillet for main, and wanted it medium. When... More

We found a nice classic restaurant in Phnom Penh recommended by my son's friend. It occupy a historical building and represent the old colonial time during French occupation. The food are excellent although it's a bit pricey however the meat and service quality are good.

This restaurant presents a good option beyond Asian food, obviously benefitting from the strong heritage of French food in the country. It is also set in a beautiful colonial building, somewhat of a break from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The menu is traditionally French with some nice Asian twists, for example an interesting range of crime brulees.... More
