This casual beachfront restaurant is a welcome change from urban Hong Kong. Tasty dips, breads, Mediterranean and South African dishes are a delight. We had a wide selection amongst our party and all were well pleased. A convenient #11 bus ride from the Tung Chung MTR stop. Off the beaten path and worth the trip.

Combine a spacious white sand beach with a beautiful view of the South China Sea, a restaurant terrace open to the beach, a small rural village set in an island atmosphere that feels much farther than the roughly 20 kilometers separating you and urban Hong Kong, then bake under the sub-tropical sun and season with sea breezes. What do you... More

I'm South African. I love my food. As such, I was really looking forward to going to this restaurant. And to be fair, the food was decent, but not nearly as good as I expected. I ordered the fish and chips (a Cape Town staple) and the fish was undercooked and the chips were way too oily. Thankfully, the other... More

Let's be generous and say that the bread they make is great.... let's stop there. Food is ok, not bad just ok. sangria is too sweet. But the caveat is the service, lack thereof, are they over worked, under paid, under staffed, maybe but the attitude could certainly use a happy pill. My take... bunch of single moms who had...

I have been visiting the Stoep on and off for over 12 years. When I first went it was actually run by South Africans and the food was excellent. It was then sold and taken over by people who tried to live off the reputation but they bought cheap and, quite frankly, inedible meat. It went seriously down hill and... More

Location is great (right on the beach etc.), but we found the Stoep to be over-rated. Food was good (no complaints at all and we had a good meal) but there is a fair amount of hype around the restaurant being brilliant, which is probably OTT and our expectations didn't match what we had heard. To be clear, we had... More

I agree with other reviewers. The potential for this place is very high. Unfortunately they never, ever have enough staff. We asked for our drinks at least five times before they came. The food was average and we had to ask for knives and forks and for our table to be cleared. The location is perfect, the restaurant could be... More

This is our second visit to the Stoep. Our family who live in Hong Kong love it because it is right on the beach and the children love that. The food is OK, nothing startling or special and reasonably priced. If you want to sit comfortably, eat and have access to the beach, this is perfect. Saying that, others there... More

I've noted a lot of people complain about various things here, but a restaurant on the beach anywhere has got to have some good points. On the day we were there (our second visit) we had a relaxed and enjoyable day and were very well treated by the staff. They looked after us and our two duaghters with a smile... More
