Average Mexican

So the margaritas are pretty cheap, and the service is reasonable - but the food and atmosphere are really just average. There's a lot of options in the area, and this is a pretty safe one, but you can certainly do better.

We first ate at this restaurant 12 months ago and returned last night. Service was poor; waiter stood at our table, pencil poised. It took a few seconds to realised he was waiting for us to give our order. When our food came it was cold. We asked to have it reheated, plate was taken away without a word being... More

Nice food. Good location near Pub Street. Good service. Fair price - two starters, two mains, large beer, large water and nice smoothy = $27

I just visited this restaurant 5 months ago and then most recently last night. It seems to be drifting...but with a few minor changes they can be back on track. Restaurants in this area of the world are not known for great service probably because of the young staff, low pay and lack of good training, but come on...how about... More

Located off the pub street, this is a great option for a few beers before heading out for dinner. My wife ordered a smoothie and it was pretty awful. If you are looking for good Mexican food it may be better if you look elsewhere. We ordered nachos and tacos and neither lived up to our expectations, needless to say... More

Well, as a Texan who just spent 6 months in China, Viva was like coming home! The corner location was great for people watching, the margaritas were yummy and the homemade tortilla chips were addicting! We started almost every evening here with drinks and apps, sometimes stayed for dinner, which was excellent. Good wifi too!

Great spot to chill and people watch right across from local market. The food are ok, not amazing but it comes in massive portion. Good cafe latte and cheap tasty margarita for 1.50$. Slow service.

It used to be the place of dream! Beer was 50 cents it is now a dollar how do u justify 100% raise when nearly everywhere the draft is 50 cents or even 35cents. Some of the staff members are very very nice and ready to help. However, one day, at the smaller viva restaurant, I dared asking for a... More

My husband and I were keen on Mexican once we saw a few places offered the cuisine in Siem Reap. We stopped at Viva because the menu was extensive and its offerings appeared to be more authentic than some of the other tex-mex places in the area. We were very happy with our experience and ended up eating here a... More

Reasonable Mexican restaurant. Nothing to distinguish it from any other Mexican restaurant. It has reasonable service. The food is average. Enjoy.
