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.

Was there with my wife during a brief stop-over and thoroughly enjoyed a quick glass of wine, that developed into a long lunch. Great attentive waiters and a marvelous welcome from the manager. You obviously pay for the view, but in my opinion was well worth it. To my shame I have been to the... read more

Old time Hong Kong island restaurant located at the top of the PEAK. catch the tram up, enjoy the various shops and view, but STOP at the PEAK LOOKOUT for a different view of HK island. the resident Banyan tree, outdoor and indoor dining and of course the mid 1920's restaurant architecture! Really excellent experience!

I would really love to love this place. It's a fantastic setting with a great view. The menu looks pretty good when you read it too but, after giving it 3 chances over the last 5 years I will not go back. Service is dreadful, so bad in fact that sadly even the view doesn't make up for it. The... More

I've been there for lunch on a couple of occasions, usually after climbing from Central below so with a good appetite. It's great to get a 'colonial style' old fashioned chicken curry and chips with a couple of glasses of juice - they do have a wide-ranging menu though. As mentioned by one other reviewer, I suspect the place has... More

A delightful dinner with excellent colleagues in a beautiful locstiom, it would be especially good in Summer outdoors. The pasts was a little uncooked and the creme brule was large but not finished correctly. The service could be improved and be more attentive.

I like to eat here as it is an original old restaurant and building which reminds me of the days when Victoria Peak was simple and not so commercialised. Our group of five enjoyed a nice lunch here when we visited The Peak Lookout. Menu is diverse, prices are reasonable to high end and we found the service to be... More

A quaint and beautiful place to enjoy a relaxing dinner. We ate inside but next to a window so it was perfect because we had a view of their outside garden but we didn't have to deal with the elements. Food and wine were fantastic!

This place used to be such a delight, and it's more than unfortunate what's happened to it. It's criminal really. We had heard that the owners had gotten greedy, and seeing that the long-time tenants had added so much and we're making bank, decided to boot them out and take over this premium spot. We haven't verified the story, and... More

We ate here near the end of our trip when my wife was hankering for some western food. The menu had much diversity with fare from around Asia, Europe as well as some Americana (I liked the wings). The drinks were pretty good and the prices were pretty reasonable. If you're up on the Peak, give this place a shot.
