“Chinese food with a twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

The food in this restaurant is excellent. The restaurant serves Chineese food prepared in a modern way. The view from this restaurant is also very nice. The restaurant offers a rare combination of excellent food, views, outstanding service and resonable prices. One of the best restaurants i have ben in HK

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

Great service, food, and view. Nice breakfast with choice of traditional Asian or western fare. Shame intense reviewers who gave this place a bad review because they could not accommodate large parties. This is an intimate venue with a fabulous view. Why you would even consider a large party here is your fault, not the restaurant. This place is perfect for group up to 6. Wild you take a party of 17 to a bistro? No, of course not. Give this place a try, it's worth it.

“Decent food couldn't compensate the poor service standard”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We booked a dinner for 17 people and was told that there won't be any tables big enough to accommodate all of us. So we settled with two separate tables and pre-ordered identical dishes for each of the table... or so we thought. Upon arrival we found out that we were assigned to two uneven tables with a corridor apart, not only that the restaurant never notified us about the table arrangements they did not attempt to sort it out when we expressed concerns on it. Finally it was compromised that the dishes for both tables will be splitted according to the number of people on each table. Still we faced the problem of having too much food for one table and too little for another (For example 2 whole chickens were splitted into 1.5/0.5, resulting the table of 7 people having too little).

To be fair the food there was fine, although it was overshadowed by the lack of quality service. Throughout the dinner the waiter/waitress frequently came over to take away our dishes and replace them with new ones, albeit without inquiring us. That would have been bearable if there wasn't any unfinished food on it. However, while I was having the signature dish, the baked stuffed crab shell, I was on the phone with 1/3 of it to go. Then came a waiter over attempting to take it away without even asking!! Fortunately I was quick enough to stop him from doing so or else it would have turned bad in a hurry.

All in all many aspects of the restaurant were decent, the setting the view and the food were all okay. It was the service that dragged everything down and left all of us with the lasting impression.

“Decent restaurant... But....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Food is very very ordinary. It is a decent restaurant with good view, but I can find many other restaurants in Hong Kong with much better standard. The service was ok but when we asked the details of the dishes, the waiter was very lost , leading us nowhere.

“Great view shame about the service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

On trip advisors recommendation ( always great in the past) we decided to dine at this restaurant, however the food was average and the service was terrible. Our main course arrived while we were still eating our starter which was then whisked away!!! The waiter had no idea how to pour prosecco. The icing on the cake was being left 30-45 minutes at the end of the meal with empty glasses, not being asked if we would like dessert or the bill.
Of all the meals we have had in Hong Kong this was by far the most memorable for being the worst.
