Best for Outdoor dining - Expert review of China Beach

A seaside rendez-vous with splendid food, setting and everything.

This is my favourite restaurant in Hong Kong. There is excellent food, a complete lack of pretension, views out over the bay, and my dog can sit at my feet and chew the occasional lamb bone I toss her way.

Food and drink: 

The menu is mainly Mediterranean, with some Asian dishes thrown in, and a kids' menu too. Warsteiner is on tap, and there is a respectable wine list.

Recommended dishes: 

The seafood is always good, and I am especially fond of the lamb chops.

Ambience: 

The clock stops when you get here. It's rather as if you have dropped in on friends of friends for a meal - the reception is courteous, relaxed and you are left to get on with the business of enjoying the food and drink.

Service: 

It's low-key - you won't be bothered but should you need anything the staff come whistling over.

Location: 

China Beach occupies the upper floor of a two-storey building set into the hillside at the end of the beach, up a steep flight of steps.

Price advice: 

It's cash only. If you happen to have run out, the staff quite understand while you pop off to the ATM.

Tables to book: 

Bag a seat at the edge of the terrace that looks out over the bay.
