The best hidden terrace dining spots in Hong Kong

Enjoy delicious food tucked away in an airy space

We all love terrace dining, whether it be tucking into some good grub with a side of sunshine, or feeling a breeze through our hair as we sip on our favourite cup of coffee. There are various cool, quirky terrace areas around our city that are perfect for a short escape from the bustle of the streets below. As the COVID-19 virus continues to leave its mark on our day-to-day lives, eating and drinking in an unenclosed space away from droves of people might be a safer choice as well as a more pleasurable one! Here are some of our favourite hidden terrace areas.

Restaurants Central

Wedged between two buildings in the dense urban landscape of Central is Arcane, award-winning chef Shane Osborn’s modern European-inspired garden sanctuary. There are black horizontal blinds here that hide the whole restaurant terrace from the view of the dining room. Eat and drink in the lush green environs of this open area in private. As it should be.

Restaurants Thai Wan Chai

One of the more recent openings on Wan Chai’s trendy Ship Street is known for serving up appetising Thai eats in atmospheric surroundings. The restaurant is dominated by a breezy outdoor terrace area, and it is reached by ascending an inconspicuous staircase that passers-by could easily miss if not in the know. For those that do know, we recommend sitting down and dining amongst good vibes, while smugly taking in the views of the street below.

Restaurants Cafés Causeway Bay

We used to think this place was only popular for its coffee and its sweet treats, but we’ve since learned that the punters flock to this java joint for the secret terrace out back. Just past an innocuous metal door are a few small tables where you can duck away from the overstimulation of the LED displays around Times Square and rest your heels.

Restaurants Bistros Sai Ying Pun

This little coffee joint on the slopes of Sai Ying Pun serves up delicious waffles, cakes, cookies and aromatic coffees and teas. What makes this quaint café even cuter is the little open terrace hidden at the back. With only enough room for one table, this is the perfect spot to escape to and wait for the afternoon to melt away.

Restaurants Cafés Sai Ying Pun

Opendoor has had its doors open for some years now. This café is loved by those who adore its individuality and character. Known for hosting independent artworks and events, the serene terrace behind the frosted glass doors here is a wonderfully quiet space. So grab a Nicaraguan honey-processed coffee and gluten-free treat and take a breather.
