I had a reservation at 6.30pm and showed up to no reservation. The welcome staff gave me the impression i was out of luck. I then asked the magical question - do you have a table for three? yes - we do. Wow, that would have been nice to know rather than looking through all my numbers to confirm my... More

Good menu, excellent food, attentive service. Request a harbour view table and if the weather is appropriate, outside on the terrace. Definitely one of the very best restaurants in Hong Kong. Very good value for the quality. Wine list, as usual in Hong Kong, on the pricey side but don't be too shy to go for the cheapest - a... More

i have nothing but good words for this bar. The food is great, the drink selection are plentiful, the view of the bay is amazing and the wait staff are nice and knowledgeable. I particularly commend Chris, the manager that time, for being a warm, accommodating and for making good suggestions for food and wine to try. Our friend MC,... More

Food was perfectly prepared, well finished. Non-alcoholic drinks really amazing. The service was always around, nice and speaking English. Both inside places and terrace available, with great view on the harbour. It's not a high floor, but there is nothing to block the vision in front. The price range is rather high, but also the quality.

This is a pleasant restaurant offering a range of food including a buffet and most seats have good views iover the harbour but the prices were far to high for what was offered. This is perhaps a feature of what is happening in Hong Kong but for a simple pizza and salad the cost was way over the top.

The mushroom risotto used to be a best of. Now, the recipe changed (probably so did the chef) for bad. The risotto has no cheese and no white wine. Consequently, it is just sone kind of boiled rice with a roping of added mushrooms. Obviously, the chef has no clue of what a risotto is.

If you want good italian food, do not go here. Filled with westerners (recruiter types), pretentious and mediocre food at best.

Staying in Central

Neighborhood Profile
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.
