If breakfast is not included in your room rate then it is quite overpriced however cost aside, they provide a great buffet selection with both Asian and Western options (especially the bakery items!).

I had a breakfasts here on three consecutive mornings as part of my room rate. The breakfasts were fantastic. A very wide selection of hot and cold foods. Hot egg dishes cooked to order, various hot meats and baked beans. Cold meats and cheeses and yoghurts, fruits and cereals. A highlight are the pastries.

I also booked a dinner reservation here one of the evenings during my stay. I was dining solo and I thought it was a very thoughtful gesture when the wait staff bought me some magazines to look through as I had no company.

I got to try some foods that I have never had before like caviar (yum), and fore gras (so-so). There was a large variety with many many things to try. Beautiful fresh seafood, and everything was kept tidy and replenished by the staff.

Of disappointment to me was the desert selection. I do not care for durian, which makes up a fair portion of the desert offerings. As I am a sweet tooth I really look forward to my post meal sweet treats. The desserts that I did try were very tasty - several types of panna cotta, several small cake squares, and the chocolate fountain, were all yummy. I just was disappointed with what I thought was a lack of variety in the desert section.

When you pay this much for a meal I don't want to end it on a disappointing note.

That being said everything that I ate was well prepared and delicious.

Only ate breakfast here, but it was excellent, if a bit on the pricey side. Plenty of choice and lots of gluten free options. (HK on the whole doesn't really understand gluten). The gluten free cherry and pistachio muffins were to die for!! please share the recipe!
