Food and drink
With his eye fixed firmly on the changing seasons, chef Gary Cheuk produces modern Western cuisine, served with more than a little flourish.
The feeling here is a little like rolling up at a friend's country house. By Hong Kong's (high-rise) standards, this is almost unearthly. One-thirtyone, a traditional three-storey village house, has been imaginatively restored, and decorated in a similar vein. When I had lunch here with a bunch of friends from overseas they would start to praise the food and then break off mid sentence to take in the view. Praise indeed.
The service is perfectly pitched.
It's on the edge of Three Fathoms Cove, behind wrought iron gates surrounded by a lawn. It takes the best part of an hour to get here by road from Central.
The four-course lunch costs HK$600, and the six-course dinner is HK$900.
