Reviewed 24 August 2022

The Envoy is a feature bar and restaurant within The Pottinger Hotel in Central. It is a colonial inspired venue that has been recognised in the Asia Top 50 Bar list. Opening hours are 12pm to 12am daily. The seating area is nice, atmospheric but...not stuffy. In the evening it is darkly lit. They take reservations which is recommendable for peak times and public holidays. Food menu is that of a British gastropub while the drink list is particularly impressive, having been created by local celebrity bartender and mixologist Antonio Lai. During a recent visit, we liked their Malaysian style Beef Rendang served with paratha. This was better than expected. For drinks, we very much enjoyed their Pisco Sour and the 'Does It Burn' signature bourbon based cocktail with a strong smokey finish. These were great cocktails and reason to return to The Envoy sooner than later. The good food furthers the cause.More

Another couples brunch weekend. We asked to be seated outside on the Terrence which was much nicer with fresh air. Service ok, brunch was served to us and since it looked they were short on staff our food and drinks refill were not As fast...as we liked. In general was ok, the audience was a younger bunchMore

🍪【#中環】The Envoy 💥殖民地色彩餐廳 $195自選下午茶💥 . 🍪The Envoy位於中環石板街酒店,是間富殖民地色彩的餐廳🏛️下午茶有別於傳統英式下午茶,鹹點甜點更具創意,比較受歡迎的有🍤香脆辣炸蝦、🐥BBQ雞膇、🦀煙三文魚蟹肉卷、🌳斑蘭蛋糕卷等等。客人可以從8款鹹點和6款甜點中自選6款,好似填點心紙咁!糕點好精緻,味道不過不失,附送嘅鬆餅較硬同乾🥲。擺盤好啱打卡,但黃色燈光搞到皮膚都黃埋,好難影人🤨...餐廳亦都冇我想像中咁大。 ✧ Located at The Pottinger Hotel, The Envoy goes beyond the traditional afternoon tea offerings, with inventive delights including the popular Spicy Sambal Popcorn Shrimp, BBQ Chicken Lollipop, Smoked Salmon & Crab Roll, Pandan Chiffon Roll, etc. 🤩What’s...more, you can choose your own 6 food items from the menu, much like ordering dim sum🤣! Treats are exquisite though they taste quite ordinary🥸. The complementary scones are quite try and hard. While most would agree the treats are instagrammable📸, the yellow lighting doesn't do a great job in brightening skin tone.. 🥲The place is smaller than what I expected too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🍽 下午茶 $195/人 (3.5/5) ✧ Afternoon Tea $195/person ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 味道 Taste:🍪🍪🍪/5 環境 Ambience:🍪🍪🍪/5 💸消費 Spending:$215 /人 Person 🔥推介度 Recommendation:3.5/5 . 📍 The Envoy @theenvoyhk 中環皇后大道中74號中環石板街酒店3樓 3/F, The Pottinger Hong Kong, 74 Queen’s Road Central, Central .

友人預早一星期在BOOK定枱,慶祝友人既生日飯,到達分配到角落,可自成一角交談,叫左:- (1) Warm octopus salad ($130) 八爪魚沙律,輕輕烤過嘅八爪魚彈牙唔韌,沙律菜同薯仔、番茄仔、就好新鮮,配埋個泰式酸甜汁,好清新,好開胃。 (2) Small plates Platter ($380) 小食拼盤有牛油雞捧,茶葉魔鬼旦,吞拿魚撻,爆谷蝦,迷李漢堡,炸春卷,雞肉串,仍然保持鮮嫩多汁,加上附上的沙爹醬,更加惹味。 (3) Pan roasted pork chop ($260 > $180) 如果叫左小食拼盤,主食有得減價,豬扒就由$260減到$180。 豬扒煮到剛剛好,無過熟,有質感得夠嫩滑,紅菜頭薯蓉泥、小紅蘿蔔、羽衣甘藍、紅酒汁醬一齊食,非常好食。 (4) Banoffee pie 2.0 ($90) 好有SURPRISE,個TART批底食脆口,好多CREAM,加上側邊兩條焦糖香蕉一齊食,大滿足。 另外因為是次為慶祝生日嘅活動,所以預先已經訂咗生日牌,服務員會詢問要否大家一齊唱生日歌。 (5) Traditional apple crubmle ($90) 比起一般食到既Apple Crumble比較濕潤,蘋果粒甜甜酸酸,肉桂味好重,再加雲呢拿雪糕,無得頂。 得閒經過可以上來飲杯野,環境一流,期待下次再來。 The Envoy@中環皇后大道中74號中環石板街酒店3樓 人均: $300 - $400 抵食:...💰💰💰💰 味道: 😋😋😋😋😋 服務: 💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️💁🏻‍♀️ 環境: 😉😉😉😉😉More

Overpriced and underwhelming. Mediocre food, inexperienced staff, good central location, good wine list. Wouldn’t recommend nor would I go back. From start to finish a very disappointing experience. The only thing they got kind of right is the wine but as that came straight from...the fridge I can’t give them kudos for that. I virtually never write a negative review but this one warranted it. So many better places nearby.More

突然間好想食Banoffee pie, 所以serach吓邊間餐廳有得食,見到呢間幾靚,其他野食望落都吸引所以book 枱。 Warm octopus salad 八爪魚彈牙而唔韌,d沙律菜同車厘茄好新鮮,個汁酸酸甜甜,係個幾好嘅開胃菜。 Pan roasted pork chop 豬扒冇過熟,有質感得黎唔鞋口,紅酒汁唔多冇搶到d豬味。雖然個薯蓉落紅菜頭打,但怕左紅菜頭嘅我食唔到 嗰d草青味,非常好。 Banoffee pie 2.0 滿心歡喜等到個Banoffee pie, 但到頭來幾失望吓,個批底唔好食,拖肥超級唔夠,香蕉又少仲要at the side,d cream 係就咁唧落個批度但又太多,我好似食緊一個少少拖肥味有好多cream on top嘅tart 咁,冇feel 叫左兩杯呃like cocktail,d烈酒都落得偏重手吓。 個Early bird 佢令我諗起 '人生有個真正朋友的確好極...飲勝' 仲要杯野黃黃地色起泡🤣 飲落都係酸酸地嘅果味溝vodka咁囉, 還好。 Dinosaur 隻蛋殼杯真係好cute嘅,簡單黎講佢係一杯有加烈酒嘅美祿恐龍,如果唔需要呃like, 自己都可以溝,完🤣🤣 其實其他野食都幾好味嘅,但我因為專登去食Banoffee pie 就覺得扣左分囉,同埋d cocktail 真係偏貴,平返兩三成就好喇。

For the price, the Executive Lunch is a pretty good value. Although, the cocktails are much better than the food. The focus is more on plating rather than the merits of the food. The winner is the service - fast, efficient and friendly. The decor...is casual and different from the main dining room at the Pottinger.More

We had the brunch here after my friends’ wedding. The food was very good! We were all very happy with the appetizers, which were plenty and delicious. Dessert was fantastic! Not a big fan of the main course (truffle pasta) tho. Go for the free...flow option! I would like to mention their exceptional service. The manager and the whole staff were so attentive. They paid attention to small details, like keep repleneshing (and remembering) our drinks. It was about 12 of us, not only they remembered all of our orders, they even ‘tracked’ us when we mingled and delivered everything perfectly. Well done!More

Pretty consistently solid experience here. Latest trip was for a weekday work lunch, set menu makes it easy for a group. This was the "Asian spiced beef pie" - pop the flakey crust lid and you're met with tender beef chunks in a rendang-like stew...with strong star anise spice. Great dish for this cooler weather in Hong Kong lately. A star off as I've never been "wow-ed" here, but it's a solid choice for a work day lunch in Central.More

We brunched here with family - and enjoyed the experience. On arrival a menu was provided and fully explained. We chose to have the champagne brunch, but there were alternatives. There were a large number of starters, followed by a main course, and finally desserts....On the recommendation of our waiter, we were served a sample of all the starter items - after which we could re-order any items as often as required. Each and every one - was delicious. The main courses were not quite as exciting - but maybe that was more the fault of the excellence of the tasters! The desserts were also excellent. Throughout the meal champagne flowed freely. The staff were discreet but very helpful, the restaurant attractive, service unhurried. We’d arrived early and had commented on the lack of customers, but within half an hour there wasn’t an unoccupied table. On our next visit to Hong among we will brunch here again!More
