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.

We came there after lunch time but before teatime, so it was not very full. We got a Nice table outside, and it was a beautiful day so the setting was beautiful. When we lived in Hong Kong, we took Our private and official guests to the Peak Lookout because it has such a charming setting and beautiful view, but... More

I made a reservation through their email to have lunch here on a Saturday. Don't think it would be necessary as the resturant was not crowded and there were quite a number of empty tables. I ordered a quesadilas, buffalo wings and 5 spice roasted for the 2 of us. The buffalo wings were not to my liking as it... More

After alighting from the tram car you realise what a great view you get of HK depending on the weather. I recommend if you an choose a clear day but even on an overcast day like we had, you can still see a lot. There are so many places to eat or even just have a coffee or drink. I... More

The Peak Lookout is definitely an icon in Hong Kong and if you are going to The Peak (which you should), it is worth stopping in for a drink and to feel like you stepped back in time. The décor and ambiance feels old world and was the best part of our visit. The food was just ok and the... More

The food was excellent, and very well served. The view was good, too, although somewhat obscured by cloud.

We didn't bother with anything but a straight return ticket on the tram. We had heard about the further extensive retail which was not of interest at all to us. A good look at the view and a memorable meal was all we were after and the view that can be found by walking around outside and finding Peak Lookout... More

It is a perfect place to take a photo of Hong Kong city, but the platform is very crowded during peak seasons so it is hard to get a photo without people around.

If you're visiting Hong Kong you really do have to go to The Peak Lookout, the view is absolutely outstanding, there is lots to see and do at the top, you can either just enjoy the peace and tranquillity, or have coffee, ice cream and a full on meal. The train to get to The Peak does get very busy,... More

We visited during the week, but there was still huge queue for the little train to take you up. It runs every 15 min but there were so many people, it felt uncomfortable. Especially small children might find waiting too long... Ride is enjoyable and smooth and the view from The peak towards Video Vitoria Harbour is pretty stunning. Only... More

- Great view - Pricey, but that's a given with the location - Has a variety of food to pick from - Had better quality in the past. Hopefully it will get better. - Ambiance and decor give an old cottage feel. Definitely a nice place if you're a tourist. As a local, it's more of a one time thing... More
