    R66: Great Views

    by John6868 Written Mar 2, 2009

    R66 has fantastic views and during the meal the whole place will rotate so that you see plenty of HK Island. The food is buffet style and about par to other buffets.
    There are two types of lifts going to the top floors. The first type is internal and the second external. If you are afraid of heights then avoid the one on the outside of the building. The one in the inside is fine and won't leave your stomach behind.
    Enjoy your meal.

    Petrus & R66: Restaurants with Views

    by John6868 Written Jun 1, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want views of the Harbour then "Petrus" on the top floor of the Island Shangri La is hard to beat.
    If you want to see Wan Chai/Happy Valley then the revolving restaurant in the Hopewell Tower is great. It is called R66 and is on the 62nd floor. I was there on 14 May and nothing much has changed since I was there 10 years ago except it seems to take a little longer to go around.
    Both the above are a faily expensive at around HK$350 plus but you are not paying for the food but the views.
    Enjoy your stay whatever you decide.

  • revolving 66: nice view

    by xoxogirl44 Written May 2, 2008

    This is a nice place to see the view; there had been another similar rotating restaurant in central that had closed down a couple years ago. unless i had never known that the former restaurant had closed, i would've never known that this was a different 1. it's really an amazing experience to be in a restaurant that rotates and be able to take in the whole view of a city; there aren't that many other restaurants like it in the world. however, the food compared to other hong kong buffets only rate so-so. (don't come here for the food) the best times i think to come is on a clear bright day, or arrive just in time to see the daily light show in the evening. otherwise a decent experience.

    There are better places in HK to eat but none with ever changing views.

    Revolving 66: At the top of the Hopewell Centre

    This revolving restaurant in the Hopewell Centre in Wanchai, serves a buffet in the evening. It takes 66 minutes to go the 360 degrees round, going very slowly, so you don't feel too dizzy. The food was ok - good choice of desserts. Worth it for the views and for something different.

    Revolving 66: Unbeatable views

    Good food and a very international mix. Has western fare but also a Japanese corner for those who crave sushi and sashimi.

    The true draw of this restaurant is its prime location-- set in the heart of the busienss district, this restaurant delivers a stunning view of the famous night view of Hong Kong. You almost feel like you are suspended in mid-air in a city of the future, with sparkling diamonds all around you as you dine.

    Booking recommended.

  • Revolving 66: Wow!

    I went some years ago...1999? 2000? Anyway, it was my last night in HK and friends took us out. We enjoyed a nice nightime view of parts of HK. I enjoyed the buffet which I remember was Western, possibly with Chinese too. The food was good, plentiful and relaxing. The staff even brought out toys and gifts for my young brother. We had photos taken there for us and framed nicely. A great memory.

    Favorite Dish: Smoked salmon - though I'm sure you could get this easily in Europe.

    Revolving 66: Revolving 66- Food on the 'move'

    The food here is not the best in Hong Kong but is still a great experience- the restaurant, with food mainly served on a buffet basis is located on the 62nd floor of an office complex. The restaurant is circular and rotates slowly, doing a full 360 degree rotation in 66 minutes, hence the name.
    The restaurant has a nice ambience and you don't generally feel as though you are moving even though the scenery is always changing.
    The restaurant is located on the edge of the central business district giving views over the bustling streets and the Happy Valley horse racing ground.

    Favorite Dish: The food is very varied as it is generally served as a buffet with Lobster cooked before your eyes, the wine list is quite reasonably priced also.
