Ingredients sourced directly from France underpin cuisine that is classically based and a reflection of Chef Fabrice Vulin's extensive experience. Beautifully presented, with vegetables a feature, the combinations and flavours are sophisticated and modern, yet light and well judged. The impressive glass wine cellar supports a wine list strong on French producers. The view from this restaurant is particularly impressive, especially when darkness falls.

Birdcage-inspired lamps, ornate silk paintings and rosewood panels complement each other in this striking dining room. Elegant but bustling at the same time, it is always full whatever the time of day. A new chef has helmed the kitchen since 2018 and his emphasis on precision, finesse and robust flavours are reflected in his dim sum, barbecue meats and stir-fries. Specialities include abalone and chicken with sand ginger in a clay pot.

Helmed by a chef who formerly worked at Bo Innovation, the food here is a little more straightforward, but still provides expressive flavours, balanced textures and manifest Asian influences. Counter seats surround the open kitchen and encourage plenty of interaction. Ingredients are sourced from all over the world and only a set menu is offered. The restaurant moved here from its previous location in Kwun Tong.

This grand restaurant opened in 1953 and now occupies what was once The Peninsula's ballroom - it even has its own dedicated entrance on Nathan Road. The well-versed team looks after the guests so well here you may find yourself loathed to leave. The chef uses the finest ingredients but brings a certain lightness to the classic French cuisine. For those wanting something a little different book the Chef's Table in the kitchen.

As humble as the vegetable after which it's named, this casual, tucked away little eatery makes everything from scratch in-house and that includes smoking and curing their bacon and churning their own butter. Try the signature New Territories pork, seasonal seafood and the creamy chicken liver parfait bursting with flavour. The ingredients are organic and there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options too.
