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.

This restaurant is may be a little expensive but it is worth it. It is a great place following your visit to the Peak. Lookout for the UK post box in green as the building used to be the old post office many years ago. Food is lovely and I recommend a visit for a special meal.

Had seafood and the western selection of steak sandwich. Was very good! Will definitely go back to rry out the seafood platter! Couldn't order as it would have been too much for one person.

The Peak Lookout has a stunning location - take note that many reviewers are discussing places in the modern glass and concrete complex at the top of the tram that overlooks HK Central, not the Lookout restaurant. If you leave the complex and walk straight out the Lookout is 50 yards away across the Peak Road. Around the far side... More

The rule is - never go to a restaurant that's near a tourist attraction and on top of a mountain. It's bound to be filled with day trippers dressed in gaudy violet "I love NYC" t-shirts and Nike sneakers. And yet.......if you reserve a table on the edge of the balcony overlooking a magnificent view of the bay at a... More

Paid to go to the lookout and half of it was closed for maintenance, spent less than 5 minutes up there but decided to wait at the peak to go up at night to be told we had to pay again! NO chance, for what we saw, we got as good a view without paying for the lookout. Walk around... More

It's inticing with the great view, but just enjoy it from where you are standing and move on. The service is undeniably poor. Sirly waiters and snotty hostesses who have obviously seen to many tourists. The food is nothing special. It looks nice on the menu but as the waiter drops it on the table, one will realise, 'I've paid... More

The table overlooking downtown Hong Kong was a good start. The menu was extensive, but for Europeans there would be the surprise of no Chinese food. The price of drinks is high, but again there's an extensive list. The portion size of the starters was large, if you're having samosa, share unless you've a big appetite! The food was good... More

Fantastic, the views are stunning and a great venue for a great backdrop for selfies. Well worth the entrance fee.

The location is great and my wife and I sat out in the early october evening. My wife said it was the best spaghetti she's ever had in her life. and... More

We went to The Peak Lookout on a sunday with visiiting friends from abroad to enjoy the nice outdoor place! Scanning the menu was the first step back as we found the prices rather high for the kind of cuisine offered! The main disapointment came from the service which was really poor! The food had nothing special. Conclusion: i will... More
