The reviews I read promised a lot but this is overrated. The setting is excellent with a lovely main dinning room and the staff were superb. The food on the other hand was pretty average and whilst all issue we had were addressed I expected more. For the setting the price was right but not for the food.

On reading the reviews and not needing to eat on a budget, we went to Vans for dinner. Was Sunday evening and we didn't need to book, as the restaurant was half empty, which I think created the severe lack of atmosphere. However, the food, wine and service made up for this many times over. Go. We had three courses each and a bottle of Anjou and the bill was 70 Dollars.

Been yesterday evening there, super classy setting in a nearly 100 year old villa with the original restored stucco, woodpanelinng and floors....beautiful!
Service very professional, excellent french cuisine with all the classic dishes and some very good local ingredients. A very good wine list and champagne selection.
It is really a place to spent a very nice and romantic evening.

A must for bon vivants!

My partner and I decided to go to Van's on the strength of a favourable review in our guide book. Happily, the restaurant lived up to its billing. The old colonial bank building has been beautifully restored and serves as a sumptuous setting for cuisine that doesn't disappoint. Don't miss!
