Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I keep coming back to this lovely cake shop and cafe because I always enjoy my time here at Island Gourmet. The cafe is elegantly decorated. The cake and pastry are beautifully displayed. Very eye-catching! Not only is her food delectable, but the service is...impressive at all times. The Manager Scarlet is absolutely outstanding! She is warm and professional. She is a great role model of hospitality. Kudos to Scarlet!!More

…after walking past it quite a few times and always saying, “Oh we should go there”, and I am so glad we did. Not only does this place do an excellent range of its own food but it’s also a much more low-key way of...trying the amazing Chinese food from Summer Palace next door. We started our meal this way with some of their dumplings and rice rolls, which were all superb. We then had open sandwiches and whilst my ‘club’ option was pretty good but my girlfriend’s prawn and avocado one is what I would order again. But then dessert was the highlight of the meal of course, give that it’s best known for cakes. My ‘frou frou’ mousse…thing…was divine and my girlfriend loved her chocolate eclair too. Plus we brought some other cakes and such home too. Just tried two of the different macaroons: raspberry and chocolate, both incredible. All free on hotels points as well! I would also like to thank the wonderful staff for being so polite and helpful throughout.More

This place is well known for their impeccable afternoon tea sets, and their cakes and other baked goods. Naturally, one would be led to think everything else on their menu should be equally good. However, when I stopped by for a sandwich during lunchtime recently,...I was shocked by the food being served - both in terms of its taste and presentation. I was told that all of their sandwiches are now served as open sandwiches, but that I could request an additional slice of bread/toast if necessary, which I duly did. When my sandwich was served, I was shocked at how bland it was and how "homemade" it looked (see attached photo). Not only did it not come with any French fries or potato chips, the "salad" that accompanied the sandwich comprised of only a few leaves, with almost no dressing. The portion served was also very small. It felt like it was made from some leftovers from the kitchen. You look at the price tag and you just know you've been had - HK$165 + 10% service charge for something that took 5 minutes to put together. The whole experience was such a shame, as their service is still good, and their cakes and desserts are still top-notch. So, if you happen to be there, go for their baked goods and avoid the rest.More

📍 Island Gourmet 📍 金鐘 • 太古廣場二座 • 港島香格里拉酒店5樓 來到香格里拉酒店,享受一個寧靜的下午茶時段。 餐廳面積雖然不大,但是座位舒適度挺高,適合坐下來享受咖啡、糕點; 食物賣相不錯,味道就只是還好; 服務因為購買蛋糕/甜點外帶的客人太多,所以人手不足,要等一會才有服務員招待,覺得可以進步~(不過應該只是因為剛巧很多客人啦) ▷ Summer afternoon tea ($558/two persons) ◁ 賣相挺不錯,看起來每件食物都好精緻。 ♡ 鹹點: • Smoked salmon with green asparagus on sourdough 煙三文魚配青蘆筍酸味麵包 • Duck liver terrine with seasonal pear compote on brioche 鴨肝凍配梨子果醬法式麵包 • Heirloon...cherry tomato with buffalo mozzarella on focaccia 車里茄配水牛芝士意式麵包 • Poached prawn and green pea puree mini tart 烚蝦配豌豆泥迷你撻 • Roasted beef with remoulade and spring cress 烤牛肉配蛋黃醬及水芹 「酸味麵包」、「法式麵包」、「意式麵包」,但吃起來都只是普通麵包... 味道還好。 ♡ 英式鬆餅: • Plain and raisin scones served with clotted cream and jam 原味及提子英式鬆餅配忌廉及果醬 很不錯喔!

We had a fabulous morning tea here. The service was fantastic and we loved our elegant seating area and starched cream-coloured tablecloth. The soup of the day was mushroom and superb, while my wife's roast beef sandwich was also highly impressive. The accompanying pots of...English Breakfast and Black Osmanthus tea were also highly civilsed affairs and the presentation was also an exercise in perfection. The macaroons that we had afterwards for dessert were the piece de resistance. Light, fluffy and creamy indeed.More

One weekend my partner and I were strolling around for coffee and we found this hidden gem at Shangrila. I must say it was the most pleasant surprise we've had. This little cake shop has the best servers you could ever asked for. Ching welcomes...us with a smile every time and provide us with the most heart warming and attentive service one could ever hope for. Honestly she is the main reason why we have visited this place 3 weekends in a row. Another surprise was the quality of their cakes, they were classics at its best! We have so many fancy cake places in HK but none of them taste as good as the ones at Island Gourmet. Every single cakes we've tried were absolutely delicious. We truly enjoy every seconds at this place. Thank you Ching and everyone else for taking care of us!More

This is a delightful little cafe on the 5 th floor of Pacific Place in the Island SHANGRILA. Pop in and buy a few chocolates as you walk by, especially the ginger truffle. Buy a small or better still, a big box of cakes and...pastries for that special friend or office treat. Stay for lunch or high tea . Eat a few of their well flavoured Macarons. The menu is well thought out from tasty sandwiches to an array of dishes from the Summer Palace Michelin starred Chinese restaurant across the way .
