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.
