So you finished your hike and walk through a row of restaurants. Tired and thinking of fluids and a rest, a nice lady lures you to take a seat for a drink and a rest. So you sit and order a drink. Alone, I was seated at a small table by the side railings minding my own business and still... More

Ordered a la carte for three after a hike across the island. Beer was cold, seafood was very good, service was friendly and capable. A good spot to relax and eat as you wait for the ferry. A little pricey compared to years past, but i suppose that's the cost of progress. We'll be back.

We split the 4 person set between 3 people and it was quite a feast. Crab, scallops, calamari, and clams were all fresh and cooked really well. View and service were perfect. Bill came to 668 HKD.

Hiked from the other side by myself so decided to have lunch at Tai Yuen- I'd heard it was the best at Sok Kwu Wan. I only had 1 dish but it was absolutely perfect. I had a steamed whole Groper Hong Kong style- soy, spring onions and I asked for some chilli. They had some pretty good Australian wine... More

Ordered razor clams, lobster and calamari with a delicious mixed fried rice. All was very fresh and very tasty. Total cost HK$580. A... More

Went over to Lamma island, eat at this place. Seafood is really fresh - we ordered steamed sea prawns, steamed crabs, steamed sea bass, fried calamari, vegetables, fried rice. Flexible to allow changes to their set menu. Strongly recommend - reasonable prices.

I went to this restaurant with 2 friends for a late lunch. We ordered a set and one of the dishes included was steamed live prawns. When the prawns came out , it looked ok to me...but when we peeled the first prawn, I found the flesh to be mushy like it was rotten. I asked the waitress there why... More

Travelled over to Lamma Island on the ferry from Aberdeen Harbour to Sok Kwu Wan and then had a cross island walk before dinner and the ferry back to Central. We were a party of 7, and had a set meal which comprised of 6 or 7 dishes, I cannot remember the exact figure. Everything was cooked and present really... More
