“stunning view, stunning everything”

The view is just amazing - the best venue I went to. The dishes are very good and the setting is fashionable and quite - so you can really relax.

“Good View, Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

The view is magnificent. Most importantly there were not a lot of people and so you could pretty much spend a quiet afternoon, overlooking the harbour. The staff were very attentive and polite. A la carte menu is great but you had better stay away from the afternoon tea which is far below average.

“Magnificent Views of the Harbor but Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

You could enjoy magnificent views of the Victoria Harbor here. Yet the variety of food available as compared to its pricing is just average. The service is excellent. But the way they displayed the food needs more improvement, say no "special knife" for cutting cheese, use your own hand to pick up the oyster ?....

“Good view, below average food, not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

This is the 2nd time I have eaten here and wanted to give it a 2nd chance. Unfortunately it did not live up to expectations.

The service was good, I must say that, friendly and helpful staff.

Unfortunately the food was less than impressive. The veggies were so hard and I couldn't cut through them with my knife and the fish under cooked even for my liking. I sent it back and asked for another more well cooked piece with some veggies that I could cut into.

The fish that was returned was the same piece I had sent back, a little worse for wear after being reheated...not a new piece.

Not what I expected at a top restaurant and not what you expect for HK$500 /US$70 /£45

Very disappointing.
