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.

FCC is surely worth popping by and browsing around photos and information about its history that you can find on the walls of the restaurant. Food is good, but average, surely for this rather expensive menu you can get better quality somewhere else. Great view on Mekong river, nice cocktails.

Location is easily found though the area is not very safe at night! Nice music and atmosphere! The pub has almost openings from all sides.

Whilst not an elaborate place to have a drink and eat it is over looking the river and well worth a visit with plenty of photos and stories scattered around the walls. The western menu has a decent choice and the food is well presented.

I was really looking forward to this restaurant from its colonial history but alas it's more like a theme pub (almost similar to a Weatherspoons....).
The open balcony sets the scene and you can imagine what is was like all those years ago with foreign journalists and the like.
Food is okay as is service but it just seems that it's living on its heritage rather than offering a unique experience.

In summary though, it's very pleasant for a meal and drink but do not expect to be overwhelmed...

Not the best access to a restaurant, but the Foreign Correspondence Club has good food, cold draught Tiger beer and friendly staff. It is an iconic place used by correspondents during the Vietnam/USA war. Go early to get a table or later to drink beer/wine on the roof terrace.
