“Fantastic dinner.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

We once were in this restaurant for lunch and enjoyed good food and buisiness looking crowd, harbour view and never ending motion of Hong Kong week day.
In the evening we discovered different atmosphere- romantic and elegant. Food was great again, service was flawless, the bill was not scary.
And espresso was really good.
Will come back again.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

For some reason I was not expecting much when I went here (not sure why - maybe the name put me off?) but I was pleasantly surprised. It does a good value lunch set and the food is tasty. It also has a pleasant atmosphere with decent views of the harbour and attentive service.

A good place for lunch with friends, family or business colleagues.

“Exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Having read some mixed reviews I was keen to try st. Betty's whilst in HK. We ended up going for lunch and thoroughly enjoy the experience. If you can get a window seat there's a lovely view of the harbour (a shame about the construction cranes just in front though).

The fish carpaccio starter was delicious and visually impressive whilst my partner had the Parmesan salad which was also very well seasoned and fresh - it's a big portion also!

The tuna nicoise is hands down one of the best salads I've ever had, a must!!

“Great modern meal with a view”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Once you get over the fact that you're going to the mall to eat, you step into the restaurant and forget you're in the mall at all.

We had really great, friendly service. A nice variety of food, everything was very good and some thing were excellent.

Try to get a table by the window. We were back a little, we could still see, but it would have been better to have a clear view.

“Really good european food overlooking the water”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I've now been back to St Betty's on four different trips to Hong Kong. It's a very western restaurant in a big mall with spectacular views of the harbour. The service is impeccable, the food really good. It's a bit pricey, and it's popular with westerners, but given the location, that's to be expected.

It's where I go when I'm weary of eating chinese food with all the bones in every piece of meat. They have italian dishes and steaks, as well as breakfast/brunch food and high-tea on the weekend.
