A large group of friends shared many different and original tapas dishes like crispy skin pork (divine!), black rice (creamy squid ink risotto), scallop ceviche (perfect tanginess), and patatas bravas with a delicious garlic aioli and a spicy kick. Serving sizes are small so you need to order a little more than you'd expect. It's a bit pricey but the quality and originality is worth it. It's a great fine dining experience, rather than a regular haunt.

The service was very good - helpful, efficient and on the ball. Decor is modern and stylish with fun accents like the animal chandeliers. cocktails were great as was the wine list.

This restaurant has a great funky modern feel and offers Spanish food. The food itself was good but after spending more than HKD 600 per person we came out feeling hungry mainly as a result of the small portions. Personally I prefer more local Spanish food but this is a more high end restaurant so I guess one should expect the food to be more fancy!

I loved everything about the experience at FoFo. Random location in an office building and even more random décor (white porcelain penguins and pigs are the theme) puts a smile on your face immediately as you feel you have found something special. The service was superb, very attentive without being intrusive. The food really is something special. Now if you are a fan of very plain food or your idea of Spanish food does not extend past Paella or Chorizo then this may not be your place. It is contemporary, fusion and challenging at times but so beautifully executed you simply find it difficult to stop ordering. The deserts were not out of the world, very good mind you, but not worth giving up a plate from any of the other pages on the menu.

We were three girls celebrating our friendship before family Xmas time.
We shared 6 different tapas and one of it was so delicious, we re-ordered a plate (The Coca de Recapte). Unless you are a vegetarian, it is a must order! And if you are a vegetarian, give it a try, it is a real MUST ORDER tapas!
We highly recommend the Calamares a la andaluza, so fresh and perfectly cooked, not too oily.
The service was very profesional yet friendly.
The only bad point was that there was no more Malbec for us to enjoy with this delicious dinner.

This Spanish restaurant has it all: the food is tasty and really authentic (must have: the pork lomo with mushroom, the scallop ceviche, the ham croquettes....all so yummy!!!); the setting is cool (go and check the rooftop among the skyscrapers, simply magic!), the service is better than in other places (ask for Kim, best waitress in HK) and the cost isreasonable (little high but it's worthy!).
I really suggest anybody to try it!
