Chef Vicky Cheng’s VEA lounge melds his Hong Kong heritage with his French-styled experience (at establishments such as New York’s Daniel) to spectacular effect. Foie gras and truffle sit alongside sea cucumber and Szechuan pepper and it definitely works. Chef’s counter dining and fabulous drink pairings (you can select wine, cocktails or a combination of your choosing) make this an experience amongst the very best in Hong Kong.

Elegant French cuisine in the the St. Regis Hotel. Impeccable service and huge wine list. L'Envol is located in the Saint Regis Hotel and has two Michelin stars. The chef is Olivier Elzer, a big name in Hong Kong. He was working for Joel Robuchon for many years. It’s a very typical French, so if you want something very French, this is the place. All the flavours and the service are spot on. The service is impeccable and the wine list is huge. Big tables and a generous dining room as you can expect from Saint Regis.
