Went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday, food was impeccable, the chef Bombana is amazing, so friendly and his food is beyond words. The atmosphere was really relaxed and enjoyable, I dont like places that are too uptight, so being 3 star michelin restaurant and still having that cozy homy feel is just great. I loved their burratta ravioli and the... More

We went to Otto e mezzo for a birthday dinner with friends. While on the pricey end, the experience was worth it. The starter was excellent - langoustine in sea urchin soup. Very tender and the taste of the sea urchin was subtle to complement rather than overpower the langoustine. As main, most of us went for the veal, which... More

Just the bread alone is superb with the pastry chef producing some great breads and breadsticks. A large and extensive wine collection which could form an education in the wines of the world with an outstanding collection of italians wines. We tried a 2007 Quintarelli valopicella which was excellent. The roasted artichoke and octopus were good and the tuna tartare... More

Went for a business lunch with two colleagues. The food portions are tiny for the price (I know it has 3 Michelin stars but I don't usually leave hungry in fine dining restaurants). The food was good but not outstanding. Tourist trap? Maybe.

Too many good dishes to dine in that night and overall experience is of high quality. Attentive services and great knowledge of the staffs if you have question on the meal and wine. There is a handmade dessert at the end and made in front of you live by the chef to end this wonderful experience. Great meal.

The service was so "unusual" that it virtually took all the attention away from the food they served. I was looking at the wine list when a man suddenly appeared from behind. He startled me by asking if I recognized him, as he used to work at L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon – more than 6 years ago. Excuse me? I... More

The only reservation we were able to make was for a Saturday night in the bar area. There are two tables of four only. The ambiance was lovely and we even got to have a photo with the owner and award winning Chef Umberto Bombana. A truly delightful man who was happy to have a photo with us and also... More

A lovely dining experience. I have never been tantalised by truffle like that, it was all so gloriously delicious! The cocktails were so amazing, fresh, vibrant. The pasta and truffle...well...really can't say you could get better. The selection of wine...fantastic! A quiet ambience but that's what you would want so you can focus your attention on the chef's brilliant work.

Chef Bombana's culinary creations confirm why his restaurant is so successful. But not only his own creations, chef Bombana is able to turn a typical pasta dish into something spectacular and magical.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
