Set on the sands of Deep Water Bay with views over the South China Sea, the big draw at Cococabana is the jaw-dropping scenery. The restaurant itself is perched on the upper floor of a seaside-styled, pale white beach hut, meaning you don’t need to worry about sand in your salmon, but can still enjoy the smell of the ocean on their open wooden decks. The menu is a Mediterranean inspired mix of rich seafood and French themed duck and poultry dishes, and while the prices aren’t cheap, the superb quality of the kitchen makes them a bargain.

Oyster and Wine Bar
Many restaurants in Hong Kong like to park themselves on top of skyscrapers so diners can enjoy a grandstand view of the amazing Hong Kong skyline; the Oyster and Wine Bar is one of the best. Sure, there are swankier joints, there are cheaper sky high bargains, some even have better views, but you won’t find one that’s more romantic. Aside from the ‘sweep you off your feet’ views of Victoria Harbour, the Oyster Bar features sexy dimmed lighting, secluded booths, and, as the name suggests, a selection of 28 oysters jet fresh from around the world.

Once one of Hong Kong’s pokey private kitchens, Ingredients has moved on to a bigger restaurant and a bolder menu and become one of the city’s must-eat-at restaurants. Luckily, it’s managed to maintain its intimate appeal, with candlelit tables set against floor to ceiling windows boasting views over Star Street below. The dining rooms expensive chandeliers, towering ceilings and designer-suited waiters only add to the high-end romantic appeal. The menu is an ambitious collection of well executed European classics, with occasional Asian twists. Their cakes are particularly sinful, and best enjoyed on the al-fresco roof terrace.
