    Felix The Penninsula: Fantastic Views, Service and Food

    by HKJules Written Mar 28, 2008

    The whole experience is fantastic, the views are awesome, the designer interior and the service is second to none. The choice and food are also excellent.

    For a special treat reserve a table at Felix ask for a window seat with a harbour view
    (make sure you also check out the toilets with their floor to ceiling windows)

    Favorite Dish: Rissotto with truffells

    Peninsula Hotel: Have An Afternoon Tea

    by RoyJava Updated Oct 6, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Such a pity we entered this prestigious hotel going for just one cup of the famous Afternoon tea and ... for the (male-) toilet on the highest floor. More than just a Hong Kong landmark, the Peninsula Hotel, is one of the world's greatest hotels. Not just for the rich & famous but for everybody who is anybody! Sounds weird, but in fact this "Grand Old Lady" really was the "finest hotel east of Suez", and, one of several prestigious hostelries across Asia! With other just as marvelous locations at New York, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Beijing, Bangkok, Manila and one to come in Tokio ...

    Favorite Dish: It is told at the Peninsula Hotel you can have one of the best experiences in town. Ofcourse dress neatly and ... be prepared to queue for a table! But we came for the toilet for males. It is all of glass on the highest floor. So nobody can watch you, when you do your doing ... and it will be like you are your doing right on the city of Hong Kong!

    Unfortunately the toilet place was "under construction",... so we decided to come again a next time for this remarkable experience, included the Afternoon tea. A bit of disappointed we left ... a pity huh?

    Though ... with X-mas time we will not miss you and come back again :o)))

    great ambience, amazing food, expensive. but worth to visit once. you should visit the toilets. its the most important. they have the toilet facing the city. so it seems like you r peeing in the city..hehehehehe

    imp: make a reservation before. coz the tables are always full

    Favorite Dish: cant remember..very drunk by the time i ordered food

    Felix - Peninsula Hotel: What a view!

    by luv2tango Updated Jun 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Felix, on the 28th floor of the Peninsula Hotel is one of the most visually stunning restaurants that I have ever seen. The decor is amazing and the view just has to be seen.
    Food was disappointing, especially for the price but it is certainly worth going for a drink.

    Peninsula Hotel Lobby: High Tea at the Peninsula Hotel

    by Rodan44 Written Nov 24, 2004

    High Tea at the Peninsula, Hong Kong

    The British may be gone, but their spirit lives on in the colonial grandeur that is the Peninsula Hotel. And although few can afford to stay here, the next best thing would be enjoying their decadent high tea in the ornate lobby. Open to the public every afternoon, high tea at the Peninsula has become a tourist attraction in its own right. Get there early because the queue gets quite long.

    Favorite Dish: In addition to your choice of teas, you can order a multi-storey tray of miniature tea sandwiches, scones, and desserts. Very old-school!

  • Peninsula Hotel, Lobby: Afternoon tea, yada yada

    by NoFuture Written Aug 16, 2004

    I went there for afternoon tea because friends had given us gift vouchers for free tea sets there. The ambience and surroundings were relaxing, live music, elegant hotel, affluent people etc.

    The service was good, the waiters were most helpful and obliging, though were a bit slow. They were helpful to recommend drinks to have.

    It was nice that they used fresh dairy cream for the scones, as this is so hard to find in HK.

    The food itself was good enough, but not outstanding. I really don't feel they can justify charging so much based on food quality. You could buy that kind of food in the UK without too much trouble, or make it yourself. There were generous portions.

    The iced chocolate drink was not worth the $58 at all. I was expecting a wonderful drink, but it tasted so...ordinary. The little choc ice ball that came with it was a nice touch.

    I think this is more for the atmosphere, surrounding and the experience than the food. Everyone's got to say "I ate at the Peninsula.", right?

    Go and have a drink, so you can still enjoy the surroundings without paying stupid prices for food.

    Favorite Dish: The hot coffee was good.

    The Lobby - Peninsular Hotel

    by keeweechic Written Jun 10, 2004

    If you want to experience the old grandeur of the past, visit The Lobby in the Peninsular Hotel for breakfast, lunch or just sip on a coffee in Tiffany china cup. The Lobby is on the ground floor of the hotel and is cosy as well as elegant with fluted columns and marble topped tables. The large palm trees give the feeling of the tropics. Included in the all day dining is the world-renowned afternoon high tea with a live string band to entertain you. In the evening there is a pianist.

    Felix: Felix restaurant-forget the bar!

    by danielab Written Dec 6, 2003

    This is a stunning place, the felix bar has great views and the restaurant is stunning. It is a pricey place but well worth it for the end of a trip, if you save up enough HKD! It cost around 1500 HKD for 2, for 3 courses and wine. Pricey but delicious..

    Favorite Dish: I chose the prawn and crab dumplings to start (yum) and the Opakapaka fish for my main. For dessert I had their sweet selection-all so delicious!!

    The Lobby: Afternoon High Tea

    by Quinevere Updated Dec 19, 2002

    The most luxury decorated place to enjoy the afternoon high tea. Be there at 2pm if you don't want to queue. Live classic music performed at the balcony. High tea is the traditional culture of Britain with hearty meal served after work to working people. The popular tea is the blend from India.

    Ridiculously expensive but so very very decadent. Our friend Duncan (see the photo) treated us all to high tea. Just superb.

    The other alternative is to have cocktails at the top floor cocktail bar. We didn't do this but it's also supposed to be seriously decadent.

    Favorite Dish: High Tea

    High Tea at the Peninsula is fun. Don't worry about your clothes, shorts are fine. Tea for 4 was about $80, but that included trays of food and sandwiches which left everyone very full. It is more like a lunch. I did not even drink tea.

    The Spring Moon Chinese...

    by Krystynn Written Aug 24, 2002

    The Spring Moon Chinese Restaurant at the Peninsula Hotel.

    This restaurant has a 1920's kind of decor/ setting which is really interesting. Traditional touches like choosing your Tim Sum dishes from the moving trolleys and a tea counter with over 20 selected Chinese teas makes this a memorable Cantonese dining experience.

    It isn't cheap to dine here. We had only 5 small dishes of Tim Sum and the bill came to about HK$320! Fortunately, I didn't have to pay for this meal otherwise I wouldn't come! :-( But I must admit that the service here is EXCELLENT.

    Favorite Dish: Tim Sum (yummy!).

    Probably the most 'in' place in Hong Kong to be seen at. The view from a window table overlooking Victoria Harbour has to be savoured to be believed.

    Favorite Dish: The 'Early Bird' Menu. Be seated between 18.00 and 19.00 and you can pick up a 3-course meal for HKD290 or so (+ drinks). Given that the average main course on the a la carte menu costs upwards of HKD200 this is a steal!
