Updated: 27 January 2017
Hong Kong is a coastal city and one of the dining capitals of the world, so it’s no wonder that its residents are a savvy and adventurous bunch when it comes to seafood. In addition to the rich seafood traditions of the local Cantonese cuisine, you’ll have no trouble finding anything from oyster bars to New England-style lobster joints. Here are some of the best spots in town to satisfy your fish cravings.

Almost twenty years old, this Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant is located on the harbourfront of the seaside village of Sai Kung. Giant tanks and displays near the entrance proudly display the array of live fish, crabs, shrimps, clams and mollusks that have been caught by local fishermen. Order off the menu or select your fish of choice from the tanks, and let the kitchen work its magic.

From behind the bar, the open kitchen at this high-concept seafood joint combines local catches with French cooking techniques before your eyes. Chef David Lai, a former apprentice of the renowned chef Alain Ducasse, is a master of wonderfully eclectic pairings between fish and sauce, such as a chargrilled squid with salsa verde, or oyster croquettes with a spicy yuzu mayo.

Located in the middle of Aberdeen Harbour, this immense three-story “floating” restaurant traces its roots back to 1976 and is designed in the style of a Chinese imperial palace. It’s the closest you’ll get to feeling like royalty, especially knowing that Queen Elizabeth II once dined here. Enjoy an extensive menu of Cantonese-style classics, including sautéed garoupa, braised scallops and freshly steamed lobster.
