I was delighted to be invited to this gourmet restaurant overlooking Hong Kong Park. We chose the signature dishes to make life easier. The tastes of the tapas was exquisite. The scallops with avocado were a delight, refreshing and zingy yet smooth, the crab salad also was creamy and tasty and the crispy suckling pig melted in your mouth. This... More

After a fifth visit to FoFo by El Willy I felt compelled to write a review here after having such a wonderful meal with a group of friends. The food here is always excellent; a selection of interesting, contemporary tapas and more traditional mains like paella. The desserts are some of the best I've tasted. The service is friendly and...

Authentic Spanish food in a nice environment and excellent service. We have had brunch there with 11 family members. The choices, tastes and presentation of the appetizer bar were excellent. The brunch also came with individual choice of main course. We ordered many different ones and shared among the group. It was amazing that there was such a variety of... More

I came here for the brunch weekend, it was a semi-buffet brunch. There were cold tapas, cold cuts and salads. I like the scallop and the cold tomato soup. The main course were seafood paella and the Iberico pork, both were very yummy. You can also add $98 for the seafood tower. The dessert platter was also very good and... More

We were a group of 18 who enjoyed a superb tapas dinner at Fofo. The owner was present - she worked in Shanghai at a Spanish restaurant and decided to open one in HK. It is on the 20th floor of a building that provides a lovely view of HK. The atmosphere is nice - tables have crisp white linen... More

View is amazing! Tables are too close to each other. Sometimes you can hear what you neighbors saying! Iberico ham and suckling pig are very good. Others tapas are just average. Prawn paella is too salty! Waiters and waitresses are not very friendly. Price is average. The roof top bar is quite hot, only suitable in autumn and spring. Music... More

Have been here for a few times, very comfortable seats with beautiful view facing the mid-level, the less busy part of Hong Kong. Its not crowded and very relaxing, an excellent place to chill and have a few long drinks!

Went here for a birthday evening and was in the private dining room. Was with a great group (which is always important!) so atmosphere was fun and there was a good buzz as the courses came through (and there were a few!). Private space is quirky with a lot of penguins everywhere (in keeping with the rest of the place).... More

Rooftop is a must, they even give you blankets if it's too cold. Cool atmosphere great, reasonably priced wine, good service, great selection of tapas food for sharing.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
