All in all a very nice ambiance. But the food and service was somewhat inconsistent during the evening. At the start of the dinner the staff was borderline to too attentive filing up the glass and checking up at least every 5 minutes, whereas at the end of the evening they where nowhere to be found for almost an hour....

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!

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.
