Description: Situated above the city overlooking Pokfulam Country Park and the South China Sea, The Peak Lookout is a Hong Kong landmark with unique character. The restaurant, having served generations of patrons including both locals and visitors, offers fine food within an elegant heritage house seeped in rich history. This Grade II historic building, typifying 'East meets West' architecture, first began offering light refreshments in 1947 and continues to serve a wide range of international dishes of exceptional quality. The Peak Lookout recently reopened its doors following a stylish redesign, which includes the introduction of a contemporary raised terrace, ensuring a relaxed ambience ideal for al fresco dining. The restaurant's stunning location and natural surroundings means it offers guests a different experience each visit, depending on the time of year.

I just had lunch at the cafe this afternoon and I have to say I was EXTREMELY disappointed. We ordered the burger, the club sandwich and a salmon salad. Good things first; burger was good although expensive but understandable at this location. However the club sandwich which is more than 150 $ was boring and only mediocre at best. French... More

A very beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. The food was nice enough but was nothing special and was very overpriced. Service was amateurish. I observed several staff members coughing into hands and scratching noses and then immediately serving customers - not what you would expect for the price you are paying. We expected stunning views but although nice, the... More

I guess this is the best restaurant at The Peak and both food and service is okay without beeing anything special.

After a ride up the Peak Tram (which we waited for a long time) we viewed the shores from the Sky Terrace and then looked for a place to eat. Figured the Peak Lookout (per its name) would have a good view. We arrived about noon and had no trouble getting a table outside with a view of the south/Aberdeen... More

I came here for dinner and the ambiance was breathtaking.It's the perfect getaway from busy and crowded Hong Kong.Very friendly staff. our mains did take a little bit of time and there's room for improvement on the quality of it.We didn't mind much as we had our starters on time. Cocktails were also great. But all in all great experience.... More

We seated at the railing. Have a great view towards the ocean. But becareful not to lean your hand against the wooden railing... More

The peak is amazing. The views are incredible though you have to go on a clear day. Or definitely at night!!! The tram is a great experience and would recommend going but if you are on a budget, get the bus to the top and just go to the top of the shopping centre as they have a viewing deck... More

I used to eat here on a regular basis but these days it's very hit or miss. Great Shame as it's a good location and holds so much potential. Service is poor as the staff are always preoccupied and during my last visit screwed up our order. The food was also so-so. The restaurant has a open frontage which should... More

Good view and good audio guide. There are little or no signs with the cost, I think it was 40 HKD. Seemed a bit steep for what it was. Better view from the peak, and less tourists.
