We had to take the restaurant ferry from Central Pier 9 to the restaurant. The trip was about an hour. Quite an adventure. There are plenty of live seafood to choose from, I would recommend the razor clam with black bean sauce, lobster with ginger and scallion. Be prepare to go with the insect repeller, since it is an open... More

We have been here many times so thought it was time for a review. The last visit was our biggest group of 15 and the restaurants are never phased. This is not fine dining but it is good seafood plus a few other meat dishes. Prices are reasonable and the food always comes quickly and is hot. Something a lot... More

Do venture out to Sok Kwu Wan for a fabulous seafood dining experience but try to avoid the two Rainbow Restaurants that are there. Their prices are higher and they tack on fees for everything they place on the table. So be wary of the snacks (assorted nuts), all sauces, tea, serviettes, etc. They don't ask you if would like...

If you are looking for a must do foodie thing while in Hong Kong and you have an afternoon to spare go to pier four at Central and take a leisurely ferry ride to Lamma Island and head for the rainbow seafood restaurant. We had the chilli and garlic South China Sea crab and a traditional whole fish steamed and... More

Hong Kong has amazing seafood. No question. But one of the best experiences I had enjoying the massive seafood selection available in HK is at Rainbow Seafood Restaurant. You take a ferry from Central Harbour, get to witness the 360 skyline, and end up in a really interesting fishing village on Lamma island. Once there, the food options are endless.... More

Just walk by on the last weekend, 21 June 2013. I found they are remodeling their attraction site, the Fisherman's Heritage Village, which was closed down since Jan 2013. By talking to their staffs, this attraction will open in July 2014 providing fishing platform, games, and educating public about the culture and relevant heritage of fisherman in Hong Kong. While...

After a pleasant boat ride from Hong Kong Central Harbour and a very interesting but steamy 45 minute walk across Lamma Island, arriving at the Rainbow Restaurant was very welcome. A simple open sided restaurant over-looking the small harbour, cooled by endless fans hanging from the roof. Welcoming and friendly staff. Large portions of very well prepared seafood, washed down...

We took the Lamma Island ferry from Pier 4 in the Central District of Hong Kong. After the 30-40 minute ferry ride, we arrived at Yung Shue Wan and decided to take the 1.5 hour walking trip to Sok Kwu Wan (not the best idea in the heat and humidity of the summer in Hong Kong). Nonetheless, we made it... More

Rainbow provides a boat ride from Hong Kong Island and Kowloon to Lamma Island to dine at the restaurant. It is a totally outdoor restaurant with views of the harbor. Seafood dishes were very fresh and good, meat dish was ok. Overall we enjoyed the trip and adventure of going to Lamma even more than the dinner.

Had wonderful clams, crab and grouper for a memorable lunch right on the sea front. Sure its not a white tablecloth sort of place (think plastic chairs and tables) - bit its a informal bustling sort of place, where you can pick what you want from the tanks and it comes to you when its ready. Its not cheap -... More
