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.

“Location more than food”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

FCC has become something of a must visit location either for drinks or dinner overlooking the river and I would definitely say it is worth a visit just to sit in the old colonial style bar and look out on the world going by at street level and the river down below.
From a pure restaurant food quality. It is not bad at all although nothing particularly special either, for similar money there are better food options around, but I would recommend anyone to go to FCC at least. once, get a seat looking out over the river and just enjoy some time doing not very much away from the madness that is Phnom Penh.

“Going downhill!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This is our 4th visit to Phnom Penh over the last 8 years. We descended on the FCC,the first time 8 years ago because of the positive write up in the Lonely Planet Guide- we thought it was great. Great location ,wonderful food and reasonable prices.
Just arrived in Phnom Penh today, so off to the FCC for happy hour. The menu and prices had changed ,the number of staff has been reduced along with the service - food wasn't bad ,but hardly something we would recommend. The wine we picked was a Chardonnay, almost 5 years old and very ordinary, at happy hour prices it was expensive at any other time forget it. It took 15 minutes to get a drink even though no one was in the bar. On our first visit the place was pumping at the height of happy hour -not tonight . Boring.
We will not go back!!

“Very nice beef steak!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

I was recommended by my friend to try the beef steak, it was simply superb, tender, moist & delicious! And value for money too if you compare with other beef steak restaurants in PP.

“The FCC: a persistent downward slide in quality.”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

What's with the management of this place? The quality of the food hasn't stopped slipping and other than its location on the river, there's really no reason to eat here. So come here for a beer if you like, but it's not worth staying for a meal.
