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.

Upstairs to this ye olde style restaurant/bar on the capital's vibrant riverfront. Despite only opening in 1993, the worldly feel and retro colonial ambience give it a more upmarket atmosphere than you'll find in most establishments along the strip - with prices slightly higher to match. I didn't try the food but settled for a balcony view, sunsetting on the Tonle Sap river and a couple of stiff G&Ts whilst musing on the brave journalists who frequented the place whilst Pol Pot made his last stand in the North. Would recommend a Happy Hour spent here.

People go here because of the history and guide books but views, food and drinks are all better elsewhere.
The condition of the premises needs attention, they sell tacky t-shirts which just sums up how bad it is. Food is run of the mill and our cocktails were not prepared with any kind of finesse.
The place is resting on it's laurels and in the meantime ripping off tourists. Avoid.

We've been to the FCC many times over many years. It's been interesting to watch the development over the other side of the river, from the bar.

Good location, good staff, good place for a drink.

A little more pricey for food and drink than other places, but if you get there for Happy Hour it's very affordable.

On my list of 'must do' when in Phnom Penh

I had not been to the FCC for a few years and was pleasantly surprised that it is still fabulous. Sitting upstairs on the balcony, overlooking the river we watched the world underneath and had a great meal and cocktail. The atmosphere and décor were still excellent and there was a welcome cool breeze. Prices were still reasonable and the service was excellent.

We went to the FCC for drinks at Happy Hour.
It was the time of the elections and the streets were really alive and exciting.
Great view for the bar area and the drinks, cocktails in particular were cool, cheap and refreshing.
A nice place to sit and watch the world go by.
Would go back.
