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.

Definitely the place to stop off once whilst in PP. You can just imagine the foreing correspondents in crumpled suits smoking and drinking gin whilst the politics and wars of Indo-China played around them. Lovely wooden bar and ceiling fans and splendid views of Sisowath Wharf and the Tonle Sap river from the first floor. The food is decent as well.

Happy hours from 5-7pm when the restaurant gets choc-a-bloc with tourists. Great VFM.
Breakfast is laid back and one can take in the view of the Mekong river. Try the wholesome bor bor, banana bread with passion fruit butter or the pancakes.
Dinner has limited options and very ordinary. There are many other better restaurants I'd rather go to for dinner.

The rooftop restaurant at FCC provides great views of Tonle Sap River and its confluence with the Mekong. It's well worth visiting for an evening drink just to see the view. But when I ate here a week ago, the food was mediocre and overpriced, and the service was inefficient though well-intentioned.

The FCC is one of my favorite place in Phnom Penh. It's have the old charm with a great rootop with the views of the Mekong. Serve good selection of drinks and foods. The service is always really friendly.

The place has a feeling that, for those of a certain age, will evoke the colonial journalists watering hole, It is pretty much only tourists in there but the staff and the setting compensate for that.
We had a very good value $13 a head set menu ; salt and pepper calamari, pad Thai noodles (I held the chilli - she held the chicken) and bizarrely, given the first two plates, baked American cheesecake. Everything was well cooked and tasty delivered by efficient and friendly staff.
It is a tourist experience but still worth it for the atmosphere and the food.
