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.

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.

Excellent location and the food is really well served; good service; it is a bit expensive - we ran up a tab of over HKD 1200 for five persons without any alcohol & we ate mostly Asian food

The food is delicious and each dish is presented in interesting ways. The food came after a l.o.n.g long wait. The menu has limited local food to choose from. The staff are friendly. We made reservations via email before our arrival in HK. The confirmation came quickly, which was nice and reassuring. The place is crowded on a Saturday night.... More

Trust me, this is one hell of a classy restaurant. Just ensure that you take a table outside, overlooking the Sea. The view is simply fantastic. Unfortunately, we could not have lunch or dinner, but stopped by for evening coffee and sandwiches. The food standards are way up there. Service is superb and the staff is very helpful and friendly.... More

We ate outside and the view was lovely. The breeze was blowing lightly, the candles were flickering, and the stars were visible. The food was excellent! I had the tomato/ginger soup and the spring roll prawns. My dinner companions all had curries of varying hotness. Three chili is really hot so if you like hot, go for it. Our desserts... More

Last sunday was a hot day and I was looking for a nice place to bring my customers for lunch on their last day. I checked The Peak Lookout website and clicked ONLINE-booking, but felt this a bit confusing so I decided to call them. We got a nice table outdoor in the shades of the big trees and ordered... More
