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.

Its so cold today with temperature at 5 degree, the wind blowing across the peak makes life so chilly. The view is all worth the little environmental pain. Remb to go on a clear day for maximum view

The menu offers a wide variety of cuisines and dishes: from salads and sandwiches, to meat and fish, or Thai & Indian food. As usual, when try to do everything, don't focus in anything... So the food in general was very average. But on the other hand the place is very nice and the placement ideal. So overall a good... More

Although it sounded appetizing ... The steak in the steak sandwich had to be removed from the sandwich to eat as it had to be cut with a knife to hard to eat in a sandwich... French fries were very good and so was the service. Lots of room for your luggage to be at the table with you.

Writing this after 15 mins leaving the place, the restaurant on advertisements claiming to be the most historic in HK and great service was probably the biggest let down when it comes to eating out on my travels. It is a cosy restaurant with a menu which offers a lot (a little pricy but we were gonna splash the cash)... More

This is just to save you waiting! This is to save you maybe hours waiting in the Q at the bottom for the Funicular Railway to the Peak. Save your time and take a nice relaxing bus trip up and see some sights on the way then come down (Q is much smaller) on the Funicular Railway. Traveling from Kowloon... More

This restaurant is nestled at Victoria Peak. The food is great tasting and in large portions. If you come in before the crowd, you could get a seating near the french windows to enjoy the view or when the weather is nice and balmy sit outside along the balcony. The building structure has beautiful wooden beams and pillars and simply... More
