  • Sai Kung

A Thai restaurant located on the seaside of Tai Mong Tsai Beach in Sai Kung. Their kitchen is run by Thai chefs and serves authentic Northern Thai dishes using spices imported from Thailand. The style of cooking here is milder compared to cuisines from other Thai regions, so expect dishes with bursts of flavour without the overpowering heat. Try seafood and meat Thai skewers or order some deep-fried barramundi with chilli lime sauce, stir-fried duck breast with bay leaves or the crispy seasonal salmon belly with Thai herbs. The place is dog-friendly, so catch a table outside and chill with your spoiled pooch while enjoying the seafront view.

  • Lantau Island

Treasure Island Beach Club took over the former Mavericks restaurant space in 2018 and has since been a popular weekend stomping ground for beachgoers, hikers, and surfers on Pui O Beach. The venue not only offers food and drink but also rents out watersports equipment, tents, and cabanas that guests can use while in the area. In between tanning and water activities, head over to the restaurant and enjoy live DJ sets playing Ibiza-inspired beats and other dance mixes.

  • Italian
  • Repulse Bay

Amalfitana brings a slice of the Amalfi coast to Repulse Bay. More precisely, slices of quality Napolitano-style pizza in a relaxed waterfront setting. The restaurant prides itself on the artisanal pizzas on the menu and a few traditional Italian desserts. Try the signature Amalfitana pizza topped with porcini mushrooms, bufala mozzarella, parma ham, and rocket, and wash it all down with the bar's refreshing spritzes, Negroni variations, and housemade limoncello infusions.

  • Repulse Bay

Limewood offers a sweet Caribbean seaside escape in this side of town. The restaurant offers a fusion of Southeast Asian, Hawaiian, South American, and Caribbean cuisine centred around barbecued seafood and meat. If you're done sinking your teeth into the barbecued fare, try their signature margaritas or their All Day Bloody Mary. And for a boozier afternoon by the beach, sip on the bar's expanding tequila, mezcal, and aged rum selection. This summer, cool down with a glass of their new refreshing cocktail called Caribbean Punch.

  • Thai
  • Repulse Bay

If you're looking for Southern Thai flavours in a beachfront setting, then walk a few steps from Limewood and Amalfitana and grab a seat at Sip Song. The restaurant's name means 12 in Thai, and it refers to the 12 essential ingredients found in Thai dishes. Try a serving of Pad Thai and sip on freshly opened coconut juice while enjoying the pleasant views of Repulse Bay. For a boozy treat, wet your whistle with the Sip Song's refreshing signature cocktails like Coriander Mojito and Pandan Colada.

  • Sai Kung

A family-run seafood restaurant since 1999, Yau Ley Seafood is popular for weekend hikers and tourists passing by the area. Here you'll get the freshest seafood caught daily by local fishermen which makes the trip all the more worthwhile. Enjoy seafood plates of deep-fried squid, calamari, curry crab, steamed or fried lobsters, prawns, and clams. You may also choose from any of the live fish available at the restaurant's tank and have it freshly cooked in the kitchen. If you need a ride to get to the venue, you may call to reserve for a speedboat pick-up.

Padstow Restaurant & Bar's location near Hebe Haven makes this venue a popular joint for sailing enthusiasts. This three-floor bar and restaurant serve modern British fares, including steaks, sausages, black pudding, and signature pies made with IPA or stout beer barley pastry.

Another notable restaurant with a view on The Pulse in Repulse Bay. Fratelli is run by the same team behind pizza restaurant Amalfitana, but focuses on artisanal, nonna-style pasta such as tagliatelle bolognese, and bucatini amatriciana with pork cheek and parmesan. So, head here if you're craving for some comforting pasta dishes and pair it with the restaurant's selection of wines, beers, and cocktails.
