Description: FCC Phnom Penh Restaurant and Bar - Casual open-air dining on the MekongWith a passion for fusion cuisine, FCC group chef has created the FCC menu, introducing generous flourishes of traditional Khmer flavors spiked with funky French influences. While the menu is still built on FCC main-stays such as beer-battered fish and chips, deli-fresh sandwhiches, and wood-fired pizzas, the heart of the menu remains a finely crafted blend of Asian, Mediterranean and Western-influenced flavours.The BarThe "F", as those know to frequent the big horseshoe bar call it, has served stiff drinks, camaraderie and comfort to a storied cast of journalists and diplomats, movie stars and intrepid travellers since 1993.Back then, when The "F" first opened its doors, the bar gave shelter from the gritty and tense streets of the capital, where an uneasy peace was just taking hold. Writers and their sources traded secrets in the shadows. Diplomats drank their per diems, swapped social strategies and spilled their martinis.Today, the bar still serves a stiff extra-dry, and the journos still pass through on the great hunt. The tension is gone. But there's still plenty of action, and the liquor, on occasion, still gets spilled.Open Daily 7:00 a.m. - MidnightHappy Hour 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.

The FCC is a Grand Dame of dining establishments in Phnom Penh and certainly a must for first time visitors. The food and service are both on the acceptable side of good but the location is the real attraction. Watching the goings on in the street below from this vantage point has to be a quintessentially Cambodian moment

You come to the FCC for the atmosphere. Colonial style open balconies, dark wood, pool table, historic photographs, high beams, comfy chairs, fans... You can feel the stories that must have been written by journalists all competing against their detested rivals with whom they are forced to share drinks and badinage. We had excellent wood fired pizzas and New York... More

The FCC has a very famous past and is thus visited by many tourists. We joined another couple for a dinner meal. The location is excellent, the views of the river and street activity let one's thoughts imagine the famous journalist writing their correspondence in past times.

I had been recommended to visit FCC and, having booked the night before, was taken straight to my table which was right on the balcony with a great view of the river and the bustling riverside. I would certainly recommend booking a table if this enables you to get as good a table as I had. The meal was so... More

We went for our first meal out in Phnom Penh here. It really was the perfect place to start. Nice views over the city. The food was great. We were here for Happy Hour so the drinks were very inexpensive. The staff were very friendly.

The atmosphere and views over the river are good. It is like stepping back in time to the days of colonialism! If you like people watching it is fascinating. The food is good but there are better places to eat nearby at more reasonable prices. Certainly worth a visit and the Happy Hour is good.

The FCC was a few minutes walk from our hotel and had been recommended to us by a friend. We really liked the atmosphere and the historical memorabilia on the walls relating to the Cambodian conflict is very interesting. The food was reasonably priced by western standards and a good quality. Service was good and we enjoyed the experience.

I've eaten at FCC a few times in past years and always enjoy the ambiance of the place. It's a fun and happening spot most nights.
