Phnom Penh, Cambodia




There are not many fine dining restaurants to splurge outside of the 4-5 star hotels in Phnom Penh. Most Cambodians can't afford to dine in these establishments except for the city's few elitists, expat community and tourists with fat wallets. Expect to pay USD20-40 for a meal for one if you have money to splurge.

The Fifth Element
123 St 110, Corner Street 19, Sangkat Wat Phnom (opposite Wat Phnom).
Located on the rooftop of the 5-star hotel "La Maison d Ambre", with a 360 degree view. The restaurant that serves French and Khmer cuisine to a very high standard. Meals cost USD20-40 per person.

1A, St 102 (one block south of Le Royal).
Probably Phnom Penh's top French restaurant, set in a modern European setting. The food is quite competent and the onion soup is superb. Almost entirely undiscovered by tourists but popular with Phnom Penh's moneyed elite, so reservations are recommended.

La Luna d'Autunno
4D, St 29.
Italian restaurant housed in a beautiful old villa with lovely garden setting. Inside dining is air-conditioned and staff are friendly. The restaurant serves excellent (stone oven cooked) pizza and pasta dishes.

Le Quay
Corner of Sisowath Quay (St 110).
Le Quay is an ideal venue for lunch and dinner. Serves Western and Asian style dishes. The restaurant's terrace offers a relaxing view of the 
riverside activities.

33 St 178 (near the National Museum). Open: Daily from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Elegant restaurant and
tastefully decorated. Serves delicious French and pan-Asian cuisine including fried rice, noodles, rissotto, pasta and seafood. Over USD20 per person but linch special is USD10.

Xiang Palace

Chinese fine dining restaurant acclaimed for its innovative Cantonese dishes and delicious dim sum. Rooms are available for private functions such as business meetings and family gatherings.

FCC Phnom Penh (Foreign Correspondents' Club)
363 Sisowath Quay. Open: Daily from 7:00 a.m. to midnight.
A favourite expat hang-out, exhibiting modern colonial-style charm with superb views of the river. No air-conditioning and rather spoiled by the unseemly gauntlet of touts as you leave the building. FCC does particularly good desserts. A meal cost over USD20.
