Restaurants / Bars with a view of HK Skyline

Was wondering if there were any good dining spots and bars with good views of the HK harbour? It can be overlooking the HK Island harbour (most likely in TST) or vice versa, i.e. restaurant in Central/Wanchai etc overlooking Kowloon.

So far I only know of Felix at the Peninsula and Aqua Spirit. Both are in TST and I have read very mixed reviews on both on openrice, just wondering if there are any other ones that people have been to and would recommend?

I also found R66 (revolving) in Wanchai which is like a lunch/dinner buffet, but apparently the food is not that good. Another one I found was Penthouse Sky Lounge in Wanchai but there doesnt seem to be many reviews.

  1. Try Hu Tong. The food is decent especially that lamb. View is jaw dropping and you are paying for that view and the ambiance. But for a tourist, I would definitely recommend it.

    1. If price is not an issue, head to Petrus in Island Shangri-la. In my opinion, this is far and away the best French (or even non-Chinese for that matter) restaurant in Hong Kong. However, you're REALLY paying through the roof here.

      Alternatives are heading to places like the Peak (Cafe Deco), but I wouldn't recommend it based on the food quality (also fairly expensive, but certainly more affordable than a meal at Petrus).

        1. R66's food is really bad - in a word, don't.

          for less wallet-melting experiences, you could try peking garden/jade garden at star house, and the decks at spasso and ricepaper at ocean terminal. i took some visitors to ricepaper recently and they absolutely loved it. BLT steak has a good view, but check there's no cruiseliner out front which will block the entire view - by the time it leaves, the restaurant will make you leave too...

          1. One of my favorites has always been the Chinese restaurant at the InterCon, Yan Toh Heen. It's one of the best Cantonese restaurants and has a harbor view by the windows.

            Spoon and Nobu also have views and I can't complain about the quality of food at either place.

              Yes! Totally agree with Peech! Yan Toh Heen is a great choice. Always thought it should deserve a Michelin star!
              Another place I love is the Oyster bar in the Sheraton across from the Inter-Con. A plate of freshly sliced Spanish Serrano ham, a few Belons or Galway flats and a nice glass of white wine should go pretty well with the great view!

                YEAH for chinese place at Intercon hotel.
