The atmosphere couldn't have been nicer! We had the set menu to celebrate American Thanksgiving, and it was really good -- some non-standard takes on traditional ingredients, which made the meal even more special. A lovely time in a cozy, beautiful setting. We went up before dark to be sure to see the views -- outstanding.

Love the surrounding of Peak Lookout especially on a beautiful sunny day sitting outside in the garden/terrace. Also love the interior with old Chinese house architecture and a fireplace though put into dormant. The food quality is very mediocre, service is slow but the environment is unique.

I can't say how this restaurant does for a small party but we had over 100 people for a business group dinner and I thought they did an excellent job. The food was very good for mass quantities and the restaurant itself is charming with a pretty outdoor space. It seems like it could be romantic if you were seated... More

This place was nothing special, We were part of a large group which may have detracted from the experience. Meals were pre ordered. The food was fairly tasteless. Beers were cold. Nothing to really recommend it.

Easily one of my favourite restaurants in HK. If the weather is good make sure you reserve a table outside on the terrace. The evening atmosphere is quite magical. Menu is huge and making a selection is always difficult. I selected a small steak with a few side veggies. Perfectly cooked and served hot hot. After dinner we had an... More

This restaurant must be a gold mine for its owners - the tourists keep pouring in. Unfortunately, knowing they can fill the tables come what may means they don't need to try and they know it. We used to go to the Peak Cafe in the 1990s. It was always a treat to sit in the garden in the sun... More

It's not cheap and the food is only ok, but take a breather under the banyan tree and enjoy the cool mountain breeze with a pint of Hoogarrten.

Contrary to the reviews about issues with service, I had an EXCEPTIONAL experience with the staff and management of The Peak Lookout. At the restaurant itself, Managers Simon and Cold were very helpful, providing us with suggestions and rendering help whenever needed for the proposal.They even got a contractor to fix the light bulb at the spot where I wanted...

The thing about the Peak lookout restaurant is that once you've chugged up to the Peak on the tram and goggled at the - admittedly awesome - views there is nothing much else to do. Actually, that's wrong, you can go for a walk on one of the trails around the area but if you are looking for somewhere to... More

Situated above the city overlooking Pokfulam Country Park and the South China Sea, The Peak Lookout is a Hong Kong landmark with unique character. The restaurant, having served generations of patrons including both locals and visitors, offers fine food within an elegant heritage house seeped in rich history. This Grade II historic building, typifying 'East meets West' architecture, first began offering light refreshments in 1947 and continues to serve a wide range of international dishes of exceptional quality. The Peak Lookout recently reopened its doors following a stylish redesign, which includes the introduction of a contemporary raised terrace, ensuring a relaxed ambience ideal for al fresco dining. The restaurant's stunning location and natural surroundings means it offers guests a different experience each visit, depending on the time of year.
