For my birthday we were aiming for something truly special and willing to veer away from local fare for the evening. The room is huge, but beautifully elegant. It almost feels out of place. Service was impeccable and the rack of lamb was as tender as can be. The food has a somewhat modern take... read more

I have been there for dinner. Food was very good and good quality.... The restaurant was not full but perfect for romantic dinner.... i tried the crepe Suzette for dessert and it was perfect. Large choice of dish and wine... They deserved to be in top 10 on trip advisor.

The food quality is not to the standard of the restaurant. We were practically the only clients as the prices are excessive for Pnom Penn - for French people or clients who love good food - go somewhere else eg FCC - we ate here twice, food very good and good atmosphere with clients!

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated to the finest details. The ambiance brings you to the heart of France as you step through the gates and pass the glowing lantern. The restaurant itself is a mansion from a classical era of what I imagine Cambodia to be at its prime. How they have managed to keep the conditions of the... More

I have dined here several times as a visitor from Thailand. Needless to say I have stopped going to any other french restaurant in Bangkok as the total experience cannot be matched. The ambience, food and service are all authentic with a charming character that is wonderfully sincere. The goat cheese salad and escargots would be my favorite starters. For... More

We decided to push the boat out and have a meal at Vans while we were in Phnom Penh. The surroundings are great as the restaurant is part of an old bank with the vaults still in place downstairs as you make your way up to the restaurant. There also is a rooftop bar for drinks before or after your... More

Van's is located in the beating heart of Phnom Penh and is an oasis. The atmosphere is serene, elegant and the food is extremely fresh and well prepared. The choice of menu is surprisingly large and all dishes are totally french as in Paris with a touch of Asia here and then. I ate the best sales ever, even better... More

We were looking for a special place to dine while in Phnom Penh and definitely found it in Van's. From the historic setting, the intimate ambiance, the exceptional cuisine & wine list, and attentive staff, it was a night to remember....and to look forward to again should we ever return to Phnom Penh!

This is the best spot to eat in Phnom Penh for sure. A French Master chef, a gracious host, impeccable service and most importantly excellent French cuisine. A must for every foodie that hits this town. Would love to come back here and also check out their amazing roof terrace! Ps their grand mariner soufflé is to die for.

This restaurant has great atmosphere and the food is outstanding, comparable to any restaurant I've eaten at in Paris. Service could use improvement. Prices are quite high, don't go here if you're on a budget!
