Enjoy the views from the luxurious SEVVA restaurant and bar, at the top of the Prince’s Building

The concept and cuisine of SEVVA is a joint testament to both Hong Kong’s innate cultural diversity, and to the far-flung travels of founder Bonnae Gokson. Located in Hong Kong’s Central District, SEVVA consists of multiple dining areas which each offer a distinct ambiance, ranging from Ms B’s Sweets, a rose-hued patisserie bar, to the luminous, casual lounges of the Harborside and Bankside restaurants, and finally all the way up to the cozy-chic rooftop terrace with superb views of Hong Kong Harbor. The cuisine and décor blends the best of Europe and Asia, featuring High Tea and inventive dishes such as Wagyu Beef Cheek and Ox Tongue Pot Pie.

Housed in an iconic former pawn shop on a site that dates back to 1888, The Pawn is a multi-level restaurant and bar which recently reopened in collaboration with Michelin-starred British chef Tom Aikens. Aikens is committed to using only the highest quality and most ethically sourced ingredients in his mix of traditional and modern British cuisine, which is served on the second floor ‘Kitchen’ area of the restaurant, and in the ‘Botanicals’ bar area. The ‘Farm’ area on the rooftop provides an event space for atmospheric open-air occasions, and a garden area for the chefs to grow the organic, sustainable produce used in their dishes, such as fresh sorrel, fennel and tomatoes.


Épure’s menu celebrates France’s finest ingredients, flavours and textures

With a design and menu that subtly modernizes the opulence of French royalty and French gourmet cuisine, Épure features a lush, mural-filled interior, and a French Garden overlooking Victoria Harbor where guests can enjoy cocktails and food in a miniature Versailles. The menu is based on simplicity and seasonal freshness, with some ingredients sourced directly from France. Highlights include fine French classics such as Coquilles Saint-Jacques and foie gras, a Gallic afternoon tea menu, and a signature ‘French Garden’ cocktail menu inspired by the legendary gardens of King Louis XIV.


Duddell’s specialises in Cantonese fine dining

Holder of two Michelin stars, Duddell’s resembles the home of an art collector with its remarkable array of art objects, and hosts regular art-related events and lectures, aiming to be a ‘cultural and social destination’ as much as a top culinary venue. Guests can choose between the restaurant, the large leafy garden terrace, or the casually elegant salon as their setting for Chef Siu Hin’s top-class cuisine, inspired by traditional Cantonese specialities with a contemporary twists. There’s something for all hours and appetites here, from light meals to dim sum to weekend brunch. This is to say nothing of the extensive selection of premium alcoholic drinks served at the bar.


With a lush, 2500-square foot terrace featuring a mosaic waterfall, Lupa is an oasis of Mediterranean calm in the bustling heart of Hong Kong. Featuring Italian cuisine by celebrated New York chef Mario Batali, the menu offers an extensive range of beautifully prepared classic Italian dishes including antipasti, pastas, artisanal cheeses, mains, pizzas and desserts. Guests will also find an impressive collection of Italian wines and exotic cocktails at their island bar. For an extra measure of soothing style, their Sunday brunch features ‘Jazz on the Terrace’ musical accompaniment.

Wooloomooloo Steakhouse

Get a Grade-A ribeye and an eyeful of Hong Kong’s skyline at the Wooloomooloo Steakhouse, perched atop the 31st floor of one of Hong Kong’s most famous landmarks, the Hennessy Building in the Wan Chai district. Featuring a remarkable open air roof terrace and dusky wooden interior with sleek furnishing, the star of this menu is unsurprisingly its steak, ranging from Australian Black Angus to USDA Prime Beef, as well as a selection of other classic beef dishes with special sauces. A variety of starters and an impressive wine list complete the menu.

ToTT’s And Roof Terrace

With a superb view of Victoria Harbor from the 34th floor of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, ToTT’s and Roof Terrace is one of Hong Kong’s greatest sky-high dining spots. The menu includes seafood, tapas, a grilled section with various succulent beefsteaks, and a bar with a large cocktail selection. The venue also offers weekday semi-buffet lunches and dinners, and a popular Sunday brunch complete with abundant champagne. These opulent offerings are all served up in plush, casually elegant surroundings with an unbeatable view of the harbor waters.


Slated as one of Hong Kong’s most vibrant rooftop venues, Sugar offers an international selection of tapas and a ritzy beverage list of signature cocktails, wines and draft beers. While their dinner menu is somewhat less extensive than the drink options, you’ll still have plenty to choose from between their vegetarian dishes, pizzas, sausage and meat platters, seafood, and desserts. Their roof terrace features elegant parasols, cozy couches, and music from resident DJs which guests can enjoy while taking in impressive Hong Kong harbor views.
