Good Sunday lunch

Lovely Sunday lunch. Tasty prawns in garlic, some veggie and noodles-perfect. Good wine list and good staff, and a free ferry back to Central. Great place!

We went with high expectations, what a dissapointment. We had table for 12 and had a banquet. Food was very mediocre and in short supply. Came away hungry.

A plethora of fresh, live seafood. Choose what you want, and how you want it cooked. Best seafood I have had in a long time. For the full effect, come in on other side of island and hike the trail to the restaurant. I will come back many times!

For Seafood Lovers a must, Restaurant is built out over the water and all seafood is so fresh. A great day on Lama Island.

This is a perfect outing for a larger group. For us, it was 40 - 50 people. We meet out boat transportation on the Kowloon side not far from the Star Ferry Terminal. It was a pleasant evening, so the ride also offered us outstanding views of Hong Kong as we went past. Upon arrival at Lamma Island, one of... More

Booked and confirmed for 18 people well in advance. Upon arrival, table was set was so tight that all guests were literally touching each other and that was when only 15 people had been seated. When brought to the manager's attention (the inexcusable situation was very apparent in any case), he VERY RUDLEY refused to add a table to relieve... More

Was on tour and went to this restaurant on Lamma Island by ferry ride. We had a banquet dinner and all meals were tasty and fresh. The restaurant was very accommodating for the patrons in our group that did not eat meat or fish by cooking vegetarian meals. My favourite dish would have been the scallops and the sweet and...

Came here several times and the food is always good and fresh. Since this is on the island of Lamma, you either need to take the ferry to Sok Kwu Wan or come by private boat. On the week ends it is very busy here so advisable to make reservations. You can pick your fresh fish and muscles or lobster... More

An easy option for an 'adventurous' dinner in Hong Kong is to book with Rainbow Seafood Restaurant Lamma Island. Their boat will pick you up at set times from either side of the channel, then it's a sunset cruise to your destination, with great views of the island foreshore. When you arrive, you will be directed to their restaurant, (bad... More
