Description: Situated above the city overlooking Pokfulam Country Park and the South China Sea, The Peak Lookout is a Hong Kong landmark with unique character. The restaurant, having served generations of patrons including both locals and visitors, offers fine food within an elegant heritage house seeped in rich history. This Grade II historic building, typifying 'East meets West' architecture, first began offering light refreshments in 1947 and continues to serve a wide range of international dishes of exceptional quality. The Peak Lookout recently reopened its doors following a stylish redesign, which includes the introduction of a contemporary raised terrace, ensuring a relaxed ambience ideal for al fresco dining. The restaurant's stunning location and natural surroundings means it offers guests a different experience each visit, depending on the time of year.

I was here for business just before christmas and I was there for lunch with a friend. Location is warm and friendly, beer is good, we had some good seafood with mixed sauces. I can say that both us were satisfied.
There's a great view on the city skyline that whorth alone the trip to this place. Recommended if you are visiting Hong Kong.

Worth going for lunch if you are at Victoria Peak. The place is busy, but staff and service are ok. Food not overly expensive, but not cheap. Good view and cool in the terrace after a visit to the Peak. Don't bother with the tram, much easier to take a taxi especially if there's a few of you.

How many times over the past 50 years have we lunched here (count them in the many dozens) and the ambience is still very much the same. At our last visit, the food was very soso, while the club sandwich was quite good, the croque monsieur however was a sad sorry excuse, it was very dry and needed at least double the amount of cheese and some extra cream or milk - I did not order a cheese crisp but a croque that should be oozing with yummy cheese. With the prices they charge (HKD148/USD19 for a Croque Monsieur!!!) they should be able to afford adding that extra cheese. Our club sandwich came a felt 30 minutes before the croque and we had to ask twice for the lemon that was supposed to go with the tea. Too many service lapses here, a fact that has been berated by numerous posters - will management finally DO something about it? But the ambience was still great and we will keep returning on future visits, if only for memory’s sake and to see whether the management finally puts this stellar place into the order it deserves to be in.
