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.

Breathtaking view, cozy place to dine and unwind

Loved the view, as it's located at the peak overlooking the whole of HK. Best to go at night, as you get to see the skyline from above. Food was not bad, wide menu selection. Great place for a romantic meal.

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.

Spectacular views of Hong Kong. Only place from atop the peak that you get to view Hong Kong like a bird. If you have been here, you haven't been to Hong Kong. :)

We ate here on 1 May, which, being a public holiday was understandably crowded. As it has just rained, seating was limited. Service was not as prompt as one would expect but since it was a full house, was to be expected. However, staffers were courteous and managed as best as they could. I enjoyed my fish and chips; our... More

After booking a large table outside so we could have our dog with us the very unhelpful staff gave us a table and 5 mins later made us move! They did have popcorn and candy floss for the children as it was Easter . Good ok . Price high !

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

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 top of the Peak a... More
