I don't know how to rate Amber. It's a mixed bag. Maybe I expected too much. We order three-course set lunch (HK$580+10%/per person). Starters and deserts were artfully presented and very tasty, but main courses -- fresh pan-seared line-caught dory and brill -- tasted a bit bland and boring. To be fair, service is flawless but it cannot make for... More

I visited this restaurant with my son, and had one of the best meals I had ever had in Hong Kong. The restaurant has an emphasis on perfection and does it very well. The food is delicate and of the finest quality as you would expect in French cuisine. The wine list is as impressive as the menu, and the... More

I recently visited Hong kong and wanted to have a quiet catch-up with close friends and chose Amber for it's proximity to Central. We chose the Central Power Breakfast menu and it was great! We had two choices of welcome drinks, fresh orange juice and watermelon juice, or have both. The breakfast choices were all good, I chose the eggs... More

Not forgeting that Hong Kong is host to many of the world's top chefs, Robuchon, Gagnaire, Ducass, and now Gordon Ramsey, this restaurant under Chef Richard Elkebus si the best by food standard. Unlike the above world-known big names who are simply not in residence, the chef here oversees daily cooking most time and he continues to create new dishes.... More

As much as I was impressed by Amber last year, this visit was underwhelming. Nothing really went wrong, presentation was exquisite as always but I definitely lacked any 'wow' moment

We had the 8 course degustation menu. Everything was fantastic. The absolute standout was the sea urchin dish. I could eat that by the bucket,. The best single dish I have ever eaten. The service was friendly and efficient. The only downside were the price and the wines. The matching wines were not that good considering how much they were.... More

What can you say, Amber is posh, stylish, lots of space between the tables and excellent food. Consistently excellent food. I, however, prefer to have drinks at the bar right in front of Amber. It's a lovely quiet spot while you wait for your friends to go into Amber or just to hide out quietly for the afternoon.
