Fantastic food

A local friend brought me here & we had their set lunch. Presentation of the food is very nice & tasted wonderful. Good ambiance of the restaurant too. Will definitely visit again when I travel to HK.

I was a little disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is terrific. The menu promises much but at least on the night I was there, didn't really deliver. We had the set menu which I assume showcased the best of the restaurant. It started out pretty well but by the time the paella came out I was kind... More

I guess delicious does not begin to describe my experience. Maybe since I am in Hong Kong I thought I would try out dim sum but then again it would be dim sum I would have tried before so I would have nothing to write about. So on the introduction from a dear friend I decided to try Fofo by... More

My client is a friend of the Chef so it is fair to say we were treated like Royalty. However, the standard of the food is spectacular, the wine cellar unparalleled and the staff and environment highly conducive to an excellent experience. Views over the river at night are amongst the best from any restaurant in the city. Properly my... More

I have had many visitors to Hong Kong in the past 3 months and wanted to try a different restaurant so after checking TA I selected FoFo which looked to be a safe bet....wrong. Not sure what went wrong but the food, service, value was all underwhelming. As a spanish restaurant how do you make a dry paella lacking in... More

I get to know this place from TripAdvisor and it was great to be here. Taste real Spanish. Started with delicious "bikini" which tastes same as in Barcelona. Have also good sangria. Enjoyed an very delicious and authentic seafood paella. To finish an delicious and tastefully "churros". Price accordingly to the quality. To improve: toilet small and only one. Too... More

...with great food in a cool yet cosy atmosphere in Central but a money maker of the not so nice side. We were some 40 people on a Friday evening so had to pre-book 3 (!) months in advance explaining the theme "Birthday" just to then receive a menu proposal for a Christmas party. Once we acctually went there to... More

What a disappointment ! Went for tapas with my wife and mother and booked a table on the rooftop for tapas. Before we could even order a drink i was told that i had to surrender my credit card in case we ran off without paying for the food! That got alarm bells ringing straight away, no way to start...

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
