This is a more traditional French style restaurant. Very good desserts, souffle to die for, lemon tart fabulous, top end prices. Worth a visit for a special occasion or you are craving for traditional tasting French food, without all that fusion nonsense.

The setting in the old bank of Indochina was amazing. I was also expecting amazing things from the food having seen so many glowing newspaper articles and reviews. I would describe the meal as decidedly average with above average prices. This might be because we ate from the set menu, or it might be because we were the last people... More

If you really want to go to a very special place with very good food, you should visit Van's restaurant. A very nice ambiance, very nice people to serve you, and very very good food and wine. You really miss something if you don't go there, while being in Phnom Penh.

Located in a stately former bank, this restaurant was one of the highlights of our 7 days in Cambodia. Quiet, efficient and highly professional waitering staff and the food was imaginative and delicious. World class dining. I unhelpfully can't recall what we had though pretty sure I had rack of lamb for main, but both of us very impressed.
