The dishes are delicious andc olourful. The atmosphere of the room and the decor is quite romantic but meanwhile is noisy for this type of restaurant. The view of yhe harbour is fabulous. However it is not any corner of the restaurant we can appreciate this view.

We had the special pre-fixe black truffle menu with the wine pairing. Neither of us found the courses appetizing. The risotto was watery and overcooked. We're still not sure if the... More

We booked this for our first night in HK to have dinner and watch the light show. We had a table right by the windows. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and prices (I thought it might be a really expensive, so-so quality tourist trap, but this wasn't the case).
