“"El Willy" strikes again! Supreme Spanish Food in HK”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Few places you can find a good place to have this kind of food. I heard a lot of comments that this cuisine "wasn't to Spanish", let me tell you..that's why it says "contemporary Spanish food"
And that's why it has become one of my favorites restaurants in Hong Kong! Located in a 20th floor, FOFO offer a variety of creative dishes and exquisite deserts! Book in advance and enjoy one of the best restaurants in HK!

FOFO is part of other restaurants in china, one of them was selected as the best restaurant in Shanghai, "El Willy" signature is EXCELLENCE!

“Recommended !”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

First time I came here. Great selection of tapa's, and certainly follow the suggestions of the staff. It was a Saturday evening and the place was full. Hence, the kitchen was overloaded and some tapa's came late. But the staff, pro-active, came to apologize and offered some additional dishes.
If you come here, make a reservation in advance, so that you have a window-table: great view over the mid-levels.

“Outstanding!!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Took 8 members of staff to Fofo last week. Service was outstanding and the set Tapas menu which provided 8 courses for about $60 per head was truly excellent. Well crafted and presented plates with great flavours. Truly one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.

“Great food & great service!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

After a full day of sight seeing and walking around HK we were exhausted and hungry and completely by accident found FoFo's around 10pm! The restaurant was winding down but they were so accommodating. Our waitress (I think her name was Lacie) was just amazing and very patient. My partner mentioned he was vegetarian and without us having to even ask our dishes were brought out without the meat (one salad was to have pancetta, I hadn't even thought to ask for it without but she sorted it for us!) Really great food, the omelette and prawns were so yummy and although we were really late they took every measure to make sure we had a good experience! Really recommend this place! Amazing service and great Spanish food!

“Great Tapas, Wine & Advises”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Chef Alex was very nice to introduce his new dishes of the month, and the food was great with innovations.
Bar Mnger Vincent knows very well his wine list & is able to correctly advise Spanish Wines.
The view over the Mid-Levels is fantastic, and even with a table not by windows we were able to enjoy the view; The Restaurant is not large, so better book a table.
The only thing I could say, is that Fofo's air-conditioning system is a bit weak (we were alright, but JUST) when it's very hot outside, probably due to the large bay-windows & the fact that it's at the top floor of the Bldg.
Count an average of Usd120/person (including wine).
It's a restaurant NOT TO MISS !
