It’s An Al Fresco Kind Of Day
The winter weather is now behind us and we have only a short period of time to bask in this warm and enjoyable weather before it becomes too unbearably hot and humid. So to save you the time and hassle of scrolling through pages on Google and OpenRice trying to find a nice al fresco restaurant, we’ve put together a list of some well known and also more discrete places that you can go try with your family, friends, or loved ones.
A perfect venue for all-day Italian dining, located in the heart of Tai Kwun. If you’re lucky enough to grab a seat at their outdoor patio section in the main courtyard, then you’ve got the perfect front row seat for people watching. Relax and unwind whether you’re there for lunch, afternoon tea, or drinks; it’s the perfect place for time to slowly pass you by.
If you’re itching to get out of the city, then make the trek over to Lantau Island. At Tung Chung, where this this restaurant is located, you’ll be guaranteed sea views, ocean breeze, and good ol’ Island vibes (and we don’t mean Hong Kong Island). Enjoy their extensive menu, featuring fresh and grilled seafood items as well as heartier and more comforting dishes like pasta or baby back ribs. If you’re heading out here, might as well turn this into a day trip and explore more of Lantau!
Located on a prime waterfront space and boasting over 180-degree unobstructed view of the Hong Kong skyline, Harbourside Grill’s view has quickly become one of the most photographed spots in Hong Kong. What better to pair that view with than great food and drinks? Whether you’re enjoying the sunny daytime view or the cinematic night-time view, definitely make sure you order their tarte tartin – it’s arguably better than the view!
If brunch and views is what you seek, then La Rambla has you covered. Serving up their El Mercado Sunday brunch, enjoy an extensive spread of Spanish tapas and mains and wash it all down with some free flow sangria. With Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour providing the perfect backdrop, there’s no better way to enjoy your Sunday.
Hidden in Jordan’s snazzy Eaton Hotel is Terrible Baby. More than just a bar, Terrible Baby shows off its cool and inspired interior with its clean and modern patio space. If you can’t resist the urge for a daytime shisha, then this is your place to get going and get blowing. When the hunger strikes, they’ve got a small but varied menu; there’s still something for every palate.
