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.

Relaxed atmospheric restaurant on the peak. Grab a table outside to get away from the tourist crowds. Recommend the curries!

I can' imagine why this restaurant gets the reviews it does. Whilst the location is excellent everything specifically the service is awful

Great to get away from the fast food and tat at the tram terminus and back to the old world Hong Kong for a leisurely lunch with great views! Hard work to find your way out of the terminus- no signs or anything but persist and you will enjoy this option.

Tram service was down due to maintenance so took the shuttle service up. View was superb during daytime but would be better during sunset. Apparently, can give this place a missed. It is just that, nothing else.

We took the tram up the Peak and found a lot of touristy shopping and restaurants. This spot was a charming place out of the hubbub. I was disappointed that they were out of the moules frites, but the fish and chips was tasty. House wine by the carafe was reasonably priced and drinkable, and the service was attentive.

I had a great meal here. The restaurant is a great contrast to what you will find in the peak building - both the restaurants and souvenirs. The service was decent but not overbearing. The food was good. The drinks fair. Overall, a nice spot.

We were pretty disappointed with this restaurant. We were there for lunch on a cool sunny day and found that the food was ordinary as was the service. I would head back down to Central to find a better place for lunch.

One of the best dining experiences in Hong Kong, now missed by many tourists thanks to the very average fast food outlets at the top of the peak:-( Waiters are very attentative and the food is superb, nothing is too much trouble and very reasonably priced for what you get.

Unique experience in HK, especially at night, if you can enjoy the terrace and eat outside … it's a perfect romantic time )) I had a very good risotto

If you enjoy having noisy unruly toddlers running around and repeatedly bumping into your chair during meal, this could be the perfect place for you. I visited this Peak Lookout Cafe two weekends in a row in late afternoon and encountered quite the same chaotic scene -- toddlers running wild! Those were expat toddlers. Even when I and other customers... More
