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.

Great Views

Great place to see the city but I would not pay the extra again to see the "best" views. There is a small shopping mall up in the area and for free you can see almost the same views from their decks and viewing areas.

Institution that was saved by the bell so to speak..... very popular amongst the locals and the regulars. Spectacular views, nice meals, western style food. But don't watch the staff use the common washrooms. It is a older building or house on the side and not in the main new terminus at the peak.

We like to brunch here on the weekend before walking down the peak. With all the surrounding trees, feels like you're away from HK and out in the jungle. The hash brown is very good! And waitstaff generally very helpful!

I really enjoyed my dinner at The Peak Lookout, primarily because I wanted a break from Chinese food and secondarily because I was missing having a nice wine. Objectively, the restaurant is like an average Western restaurant. The atmosphere is western but better than average. There aren't that many tables with real views, so don't count on one.

This is where I always come when visiting the Peak. It has got a very wide menu, trying to cater to the international clientel. My favourite is the soft shell crab. Perhaps the restaurant could have more varied sauces with the meals.

It seems that is only worth it for its view, so don't come if there's no nice weather. Without the view, the place is nothing special. Food is not particularly good, service is rather bad.
