With a long history as Phnom Penh's place to see and be seen, the FCC is as much a tour stop as a restaurant. Once the gathering place of the dust-caked, camera-toting, intrepid breed who came to chronicle the country's troubled times, the FCC is now a multifloor affair of restaurant, bar, and shops done in dark wood and terra cotta. There are low reclining chairs in the cafe area, a fine dining room, and a dark bar as the stalwart centerpiece. The whole second floor is oriented to the fine views of the river and busy Sisowath below. Ceiling fans dangle from the high, exposed roof and spin oblong patterns, and geckos, as everywhere, chase along the walls. The food is uninspired Western, but everything is good. They make fine pizza in their wood-fired oven and have good snacks like nachos and enchiladas, as well as treats like a fudge cake with coconut ice cream. The upstairs bar is very popular in the evening.
