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

it is mayhem in the city, nothing took our fancy and we are tiring of noodles and rice. Vans is fabulously quiet with a good choice of reasonably priced food, although that description is subjective. We had entrees, main course each, lamb shank and cod, one desert, two glasses of wine, two beers and a brandy ... $103 US My... More

Went to Van's with my wife for an upscale dinner in Phnom Pehn. We were not disappointed. The service was excellent. The food and wine were very good. The Staff didn't hover like they do in some Asian cities. An overall wonderful experience. I will go there again when I return to Asia.

I ordered the dinner menu while my husband ordered the degustation menu (which was $20 more). I must say the dinner menu was super worth it as it came with wine and tea and hearty portions of good food and wide selection. The more expensive degustation menu was disappointing. the portions were too meagre even by asian standards and the... More
