Nice boat ride around Hong Kong Island and mountains of seafood...

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... read more

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

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

Nice location but overpriced for what you get. We had a simple Rainbow Seafood Rice dish and there was almost no seafood included. The vegetable seafood soup was okay but not really full of seafood either. Unless you order a full menu, you should consider another place. I am not convinced by their food but for what it's worth: a... More

We met with extended HK family here. The have a boat that goes from Central pier 9 for free. It takes you to the island where the seafood is fresh, plentiful and tasty. It isn't the cheapest - but certainly one of the easiest with the boat service. It is outside and covered and they are very used to tourists... More

Dining with colleagues for annual party there. Area is clean and tidy but mosquito was flying under table. Staffs are friendly. Took ferry from Hong Kong to Lamma around 30 minutes per trip there. Open dining area, go there in spring and autumn seasons are the best for dining there.
