Great place. Friendly staffs, good price. Good food. What more can you ask for at this price. Located near pub street but not disturbing noise. Easy to enjoy night life without spending on transportation. If you don't bother about fancy place or swimming pool. This is the place for you, especially young couple.

I only visited the restaurants at the locations. On the visits I sampled the following: beer; rum; margarita and soft-drinks. The rum & coke was good but I was charged a full price for a small amount of coke from a large bottle, poured into a small glass. The margarita was awful and I could not recommend it. On the...

If you are looking for an escape back to western food or just wishing to try some great mexican this is your stop. Awesome breakfast and dinner. Huge portions and very inexpensive. Highly recommended. The fajitas and chimichangas are excellent for dinner. The breakfast burrito is top notch. Lots of great margaritas too. Try the cherry one!

As mentioned on their t-shirt they also have a location in Phnom Phen. Resonably prices...clean...50 cent draft and right where the action is on pub street. Staff is very friendly. It was a 2015 Trip Advisor winner.

Located in the corner near pub street, the restaurant perhaps serves the best frozen margaritas in town. The food is reasonably priced and good. It serves local cuisine as well as Mexican and European food. The staff is bubbly and eager to serve. Must visit when in Siem Reap.

More expensive than many restaurants. Service is reasonable. main appeal is sitting beside the street and people watching. Food is ok but nothing special. However, does have some Mexican food of course

We ate at Viva's a few times and it was consistently good. The mango salad was lovely and we also loved the frozen margaritas. Just what was needed on a hot day . Great service and the perfect place to sit and watch the world pass by.

Absolutely disgusting food. Not Mexican food at all. Tortillas are thick and soggy. Inside is carrots, the "retried beans" are mush and I asked for jalapeños and they brought green chilli's I said these are chills not jalapeños they said that's what they know to be jalapeños. It's all bland everything tastes the same. Rice was a sticky blob you... More

Viva Mexican Restaurant is conveniently located near Pub Street, the Old Market, the Night Market, and other downtown destinations. My wife and I visited there last year and the food was so good and authentic that we wanted to return. Again this year the food was very good with a wide variety of Mexican dishes available. The service was timely.... More
