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.

Bit surprising for such a tourist place

I don't usually associate tourist spots like this with good food but having had several visits over the years, our last one lived up to the memories. Expansive menu, nice surroundings and service was fine. Spicy calamari was a little too much of a good thing but salmon was delicious and no other... read more

The biggest prawns I've ever seen and eaten, the food was delicious and the views are even better. Great service and overall experience.

Tasteless food, toast as hard as cardboard, bad food presentation and the dishes does not look fresh and the chicken congee smells foul, chicken have skin and have black bits. To top it all, since returning the dishes the male server/manager started to be rude. Shame such a lovely place but food-wise is a failure. Can be dangerous to eat... More

Service was really bad, we had a bug in my sister Pad Thai, called the waiter and he came back saying that it was a dry herb!! WHERE DO YOU GET THE STAFF TO TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE WRONG WHEN YOU ARE CERTAINLY RIGHT? Food was very little and expensive. Nice garden but would not go back.

Service was atrocious--staff acted like serving was an imposition. Food was mundane and expensive. I wouldn't bother. I expected more.

One of the best ways to see HK, if in HK make sure you get there. The line up can be a bit trying at times but when you get up there it's 100% worth it.

I loved this little restaurant. It has quite an extensive menu, which would normally deter me, how can any one kitchen cook that many dishes well...but everything I had was lovely. I had foie gras and steak tartare which are some of my favourite dishes to have anywhere. Both were good, I would return for them. My strawberry daiquiri was... More

Ate here around 9:30 on a Wednesday evening after visiting the the Peak tower. The day had been boiling hot and it was nice to find somewhere with a breeze. The restaurant wasn't busy and we had a table outside looking out over the South China Sea. The restaurant was lovely constructed with candles and lights backing a nice backdrop... More
