Hong Kong restaurants with epic views

  • North Point

From lunch to afternoon drinks, dinner to a late night spot, Cruise is a hidden rooftop oasis to enjoy social connection, modern asian fare, and cocktails while overlooking Victoria Harbour.

The food and drink menus draw inspiration from South East and North East Asian cuisine – approaching traditional items in an unorthodox and reimagined way. Soak up the views and enjoy discounted prices on select wine during Cruise's Sunset Sessions from 3pm to 7pm daily.

The Peninsula is home to Felix, a European-inspired restaurant created by renowned avant-garde designer Philippe Starck. There are jaw-dropping views from the 28th floor venue, showcasing, at night, the lights of TST and Central reflected on the harbour waters. The food is pretty jaw-dropping too. This Christmas, in addition to its classic modern European offerings, it also has special multi-course set dinners available.

  • West Kowloon

Nestled within West Kowloon Art Park, complete with incredible cross-harbour views of Hong Kong's skyline, Pano is a french fine dining experience where diners can enjoy top-quality fare surrounded by the park lawns. Highlights on the menu include rep prawn carpaccio, smoked sardine salad, and grilled French quails to name just a few. Reasonably priced and in a very romantic setting – something difficult to find elsewhere in our urban sprawl – this is a good place to go for a date night.

  • Tsim Sha Tsui

Be dazzled by Aqua’s two-storey-high glass windows with an unparalleled view of Hong Kong’s famous skyline. A combination of Japanese and Italian cuisines are served up at this famous restaurant, so you can dine on exquisite pasta, robotayaki, sushi and desserts while taking in Hong Kong's stunning skyline in all its glory.

  • Admiralty

This restaurant has stood the test of time, and its classic style interior has remained too. Though in more recent times the cuisine showcases some really rather innovative contemporary fare, thanks to chef Uwe Opocensky. Sample dishes such as the grilled Spanish red prawn served with flavourful garum, and the Japanese rice, donabe, king crab and kohlrabi. Pair this with excellent wine, impeccable service, the excellent views of the city, and you have yourself a quintessential spot for a rather special occasion.

  • Tsim Sha Tsui East

There’s no point in a restaurant boasting a great sky-high view if it doesn’t have great sky-high dishes to match. Above & Beyond at Hotel Icon doesn’t disappoint. The dim sum here is heavenly. We reckon you should leave your choices in the chefs’ hands at lunch and go for the dim sum platter that includes treats like the steamed pork dumpling with porcini, and the baked whole abalone tart with diced chicken.

A perfect choice for special occasions, Tosca di Angelo is a stunning Italian restaurant inspired by one of the most famous operas in history. In a theatrical space featuring flowing fountains, and chandeliers, guests can enjoy refined takes on Italian favourites, such as cavatelli with red prawns, and tortelli with burrata, lemon and anchovies. Not forgetting the view, the jaw-dropping cityscape is definitely a sight for sore eyes.

  • Steakhouse
  • Causeway Bay

Sitting pretty on the top floor of Causeway Bay’s V Point building, Alto is designed by the legendary Tom Dixon and boasts sophisticated and extraordinary interiors. However, possibly its best USP is its breathtaking view over the city. Its quality-driven seasonal menu features plenty of grilled meats, as well as Asian and French-influenced dishes. There’s also a customisable three-course dinner on offer this Christmas. Diners can enjoy the meal accompanied by clouds, the vast Victoria Harbour vista and a view of many of Hong Kong’s landmark skyscrapers.

Chef Guillaume Galliot whisks guests into the world of French gastronomy using the finest ingredients to create the most sensuous flavours on a plate. On the menu are dishes like Alaskan king crab with oysters, prawn jelly and caviar. The restaurant has a fantastic French artisanal cheese collection, an extensive wine list focusing mostly on Bordeaux and Burgundy and of course, a jaw-dropping grand view to go along with your meal. Located in the Four Seasons, Caprice looks over the harbour, so you’ll have a great waterfront seat.

  • Tsim Sha Tsui

A spacious modern Australian restaurant in the renovated Hong Kong Museum of Art that brings together great food and great views. With gastronomic innovation from down under and quality ingredients sourced from around the globe, diners can experience a culinary showcase of Aussie fare, paired with a panoramic view of the harbour. The pre-dinner drinks lounge area even has a set of floor-to-ceiling glass windows that gives you the illusion of being right by the waterfront. Stunning.

  • Tsim Sha Tsui

Hong Kong's hottest new al fresco dining space offers stunning views from its location by the Tsim Sha Tsui Harbourfront. The menu is inspired by casual Australian cuisine, and in line with its waterfront location, all things seafood dominate. The seafood platters are a particularly mouth-watering option to share amongst friends whilst sipping down on one of the food bar's selection of beers, from local brews to imports from New Zealand.

This isn’t your grandma’s fried rice. Michelin-starred Hutong does high-end Chinese food with mostly northern dishes from Beijing. As a part of the Aqua Group, be prepared to dine in opulent surroundings with exceptional service, and views almost as spectacular as sister restaurant Aqua's.

Hands down, Le 188 has the best views in Hong Kong. Better than The Peak, better than Aqua and better than a helicopter ride around the harbour. Here, one can have wine inside or out, snack from a raw bar and dine with 188 degree views – hence the name. The entrance is grand, lined with the Earth’s finest stones, stunning chandeliers, and double height floor-to-ceiling glass, showcasing a stunning world city from three sides.
