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.

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 on classic French, but somehow,... More

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!

I usually have my business lunches at Open Wine, but the experience at Van's was far superior in every way. Better menu, better hospitality, better presentation. We visit Van's every time we visit Phnom Penh. Have loved the dinners. Now we love the lunches too!
