After both our hotel and a local ex-pat recommended FCC we were excited to try it out. We were severely disappointed. We arrived after 10 pm and the place was dead, our first red flag. Even though the place was deserted it took forever to get a menu and order. Then it took forever to get our drinks. When the... More

This is a great place to absorb colonial history- or really a slice of the past 50 years. It was the original expat and journo hangout pre-khymer rouge. Nothing much has changed since the 70's. And the food is good. The prices are up there for Cambodia but if 2 margueritas for Us$5 is too rich for your blood (happy... More

Still a good spot for a late afternoon drink watching the sun go down over the Mekong river but it's pure commercial now and expensive. The photographs are a still intense but that's the only reminder of this building's history.

We visited FCC after a long flight, our hotel receptionist recommend. We were starving so blindly walked into the first restaurant. The view was nice but that was it. Staff were unfriendly, service slow and food was extortionate. The food was bad quality, they charge over three dollars for a beer, walk a couple doors down and you will get... More

Thank you for your feedback. We regret hearing about your disappointment, but we are afraid there must have been some sort of miscommunication with our staff, as they are all trained and supervised in both customer service and English skills periodically. Some of our waiters have just joined the team and still need to overcome their shyness, hence keeping what... More

Head to second floor terrace for scenic Tonle Sap river view while sipping your wine. Good food. Try the grilled beef (beef tiger or something like that) Good crowd most evenings. Good place to networking as well.

Stopped in for lunch on a hot afternoon and enjoyed the view and a couple of cold beers while waiting for our food. The Crying Tiger beef and the Amok fish curry were pretty good as was the calamari. Probably not cheap for Cambodia, but food surprised us and worth the stop if near. Having said that the building appears... More

Without a doubt a tourist trap of sorts. Obviously popular with expats and people wanting a sense of history. Fair selection of posers for sure but they get everywhere. Some great pictures on the wall. Not sure how much of original fittings survive. Pleasant enough place. Good selection of food and drinks. Maybe more expensive than some places but by... More

Went to FCC with high expectations of a Colony style experience of a bygone era. What we found was a great building in a great location overlooking river, but what we also found was poor service expensive mediocre food and a tour groups being brought in for a set meal and photo opportunity All very disappointing as rest of time...

Three of us had lunch in their 1st floor restaurant overlooking the Tonle Sap River. It is an iconic 'colonial' building with interesting photos, so worth a visit. I chose fishcakes, which were delicious, with fresh coconut to drink.

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.
