A traditional romantic restaurant! Service and food quality are good. Even a butter for bread is shaped as a rose, so gorgeous! For anniversary celebration, recommend to request for Napoleon cake as your dessert.

This restaurant has been around since the late 60's. I come here for the special occasion. It has a very old style romantic ambience that cannot be found in other French restaurants in Hong Kong, and of course, the oldies menu. They still serve sorbet in between entrée and main courses! Please make sure you have the dessert Napoleon, or... More

因為不想a la carte去想吃什麼,我倆也叫了dinner menu。我點了4 course,朋友點了3 course。朋友因身體問題不能吃甜食,但他們不讓他選頭盤加湯及主菜,說甜品必須跟上。那我們也只好依照,也覺得沒所謂,至少也問過。 好的!頭盤來了!我選了它們家岀名的煎鵝肝。它們家的鵝肝是用冬瓜來配的。我記得從前的是用梨子的。這個冬瓜也蠻新穎,水份不會過多但不是少,但能中和鵝肝的油份。醬料也好像淡淡的黑椒sauce的味道,不是好特岀,所以也不是太吃到他的味道,可能是因為冬瓜水份的問題。然而鵝肝自己煎得不夠香,所以總括來說鵝肝只是不過不失。不是有太大驚喜。 湯:clam chowder。也是它們的招牌菜。個人覺得晚上的比較好味。因為clams are much bigger和湯比較濃郁一點及有鮮味。這個我覺得不錯! 我們另外再叫了一份escargot。味道很獨特,但不是太特岀,有一份少少的酸味再配garlic butter.。這個就是,我覺得大家不用試。 喝完頭盤之後,它們會給你一個grapefruit sorbet去清清味雷。這個sorbet不會太甜,也不會太酸,我覺得很清新。 主菜:baked cheese king prawns with lobster sauce. Lobster sauce應該是lobster bisque的濃郁版吧。amigo的lobster bisque就不用說吧,一定是好的。整體感覺不會很「溜」,就是剛剛好的。cheese只是一點點,所以不會蓋過龍蝦汁及大蝦的味道。份量也是剛剛好的,所以女生可以點這個。我吃到一半已經覺得很飽了!!可是真的蠻美味的關係,我也把蝦吃完。 甜品:橙味souffle。就是中規中矩,不過不失吧。不會很甜。加了Orange sauce也是淡淡的。真的是跟食空氣無誤(笑) 生日蛋糕:napoleon蛋糕本人覺得就是比從前的沒那麼好吃。不知道是否因為是免費的原故,可是就是普普通通。但是也是因為是免費的,我覺得不用太高要求。他們還會給你玫瑰花及幫你拍照。 服務:老一輩的接待生好像比中年及後生的好。真的要給掌聲這班老前輩,真的是敬業樂業,很值得人尊重。希望中年的跟少年的,先的一輩可以跟前輩多加學習,讓這家老牌餐廳能好好做下去。 還有他們洗手間裡有一位姨姨的,這個真的估不到到現在還有,真的是很七八十年代。她也照顧很周到,而我因不知情下也沒有帶小費進去,亦感到萬般的不好意思。 環境:是浪漫的,裝修也很有風味。另外,餐廳還有駐場歌手,會到每一枱讓你點唱。從小就看到他們仨,真的是他看著我大,我也看著他們大的那種關係。哈哈。他們現在連新英文歌也識唱。jason mraz, james blunt, Bruno Mars etc 這些新進歌手也識唱。希望大家若點完歌,也給他們一點打償作支持。因為這些駐場歌手文化也會越來越少的,何況他們三位也唱得很好及真的是什麼歌也識! 總結,如題,amigo也是穩陣之選,是一個中規中矩,不是會有大驚喜或大失望的地方。價錢也合理,所以也值得來的。

This is another traditional institution where the local Happy Valley wealth on italian/western cuisine. Not cheap, tuxed service and a regular spot for business meetings where bills are expensed. There are no bad restos in HK, they would not last. This one has been here for decades.

《Amigo》,按字典的解說是西班牙語,朋友的意思;只看娛樂新聞的朋友們,《Amigo》,就是崔建邦的英文名字。但是日我說的,並不是以上的兩樣,我想說的是我來到位於跑馬地的老字號高級食府,《Amigo》(雅谷餐廳)的飲食經歷。 《Amigo》,這一家高尚的餐飲勝地,始於1967年,原址在銅鑼灣的波斯富街,後在1976年,購入了現址的大廈,才成為今時今日,既帶點地中海的歐陸氣色,而且內外都雍容華貴的《Amigo》(雅谷餐廳)。 服務的店員,很紳士,因為他們全都穿上了"踢死兔"。而我們一下的士,就有兩位穿上"踢死兔"的職員來迎接。而店員見我拿著相機周圍拍,手中一指上面的這一個太陽,說這是《Amigo》的標誌,叫我一定要影... 一入大門,我看到的這一個格局,並不是香港餐廳常見的格局,因為這是古典的歐陸味道,說這餐廳有法國及西班牙的風格,單是樓下的這一個地方,已經可以讓大家感受得到。用餐的地方是在樓上的,來者都要從這古典的樓梯行上去。同事已經上餐樓了,而我仍然獨自一人在這小小的空間陶醉著。 樓上餐樓而裝修,沒有現今高級食府的那一種以金碧輝煌為主的華麗感覺,這一個令我覺得華麗的感覺,是來至這兒的歐陸感覺,我到過地中海不少地方,入到一些酒店及餐廳看見的,同這一個場景,相差不大。 當店員把餐牌遞到我們手上的時候,手感很重,而且牌薄上的那一個《Amigo》標誌,令這一個應該是最平凡的餐牌,變成一個帶貴氣的物品。 是日,我們只吃 set lunch,而 lunch 是包一杯酒的,酒,是普通的 Table Wine,有紅有白任選擇。我選擇了紅,全因為我點上了牛肉,紅肉,是配紅酒的。 食西餐,麵包是好多香港人喜歡的環節,餐前的《Amigo》麵包,感覺是精緻的,輕輕的一小片,夾上牛油,十分之香口。 牛油,很有藝術感地弄成一個似花的形狀,幸好現在的科技夠發達,不然我也不會把這一個一定會被消滅的藝術品留下照影。 吃好麵包,就有頭盤,金牌炸雞卷 (Deep Fried Golden Chicken Roll),有少少似外國餐牌中常見的 Chicken Kiev,不過,內裡是沒有餡的。入口,這是雞肉打碎後再壓成卷,再加上粉去炸,既是香口,充滿了雞肉的原味,而濃味的茄醬,有點甜,有點酸,也有少少胡椒的辛,這就是歐洲人吃雞卷的味道。 同事要了一個輕量級的頭盤,夏威夷海鮮沙律 (Hawaii Seafood Salad),這是一個充滿了夏日氣色的食品,充滿了水果,充滿了新鮮的海產,感覺就是很熱情,而這一種熱情感覺,配上了海鮮,用夏威夷來形容,非常之貼切。 頭盤之後是湯,而我們都點了蟹肉蘑菇忌廉湯 (Cream of Mushroom with Crab Meat)。由於我們眾人都同選一個湯,《Amigo》非常傳統地,推了架車仔出來,穿著"踢死兔"的侍應,帶上手套,溫文有禮地在我們面前把湯再煮熱,感覺特別的高級。 湯因為在我們的餐檯旁加熱,所以是一個熱力十足的忌廉湯,這湯的味道十分之濃厚,但又不是濃到 "杰撻撻" 的那一種,入口,是有少少槳力的湯水,味道香滑而且奶油味充足,煲一煲後,蟹同蘑菇的味道令湯水升華,入口更香更鮮美。 主菜之一,是脆煎鱈魚配蘑菇蕃茄白酒忌廉汁 (Pan-Seared Cod Fillet with Marquis Sauce)。魚肉配白汁,是最香最配襯的,而這香煎的魚肉,沒有加粉,直接去煎魚肉,令魚肉的外層呈現出金黃的色彩,而且香脆,一啖魚肉,配上汁,是可口的。 扒羊扒配黑胡椒汁 (Grilled Lamb with Black Pepper Sauce),首先,我可以說這東西是份量好足夠的,因為足有三塊扒,感覺就是重份量。羊肉,當然有羊肉龐有的羶香,加了黑椒汁可把部份的羶味蓋走。7成熟的羊肉,肉質既腍又香,近骨的地方比較生,入口更香。 紅酒燴牛仔臉頰 (Braised Veal Cheek served with Tagliatelle),因有兩個人同時點上這意粉,穿著"踢死兔"的侍應,也帶上手套,溫文有禮地在我們面前把那一份紅酒燴牛仔臉頰在我們面前煮熱。這一個紅酒燴牛仔臉頰,味道同紅酒燴牛尾分別不大,最好的就是沒有骨,牛面的肉爽口而且沒有多餘的肥油。我向來都很喜歡外國的"燴" 食品,因為有汁,味濃,可以配飯食,很 wow...
