Bathers LOL

Feel the Holiday Vibe at Bathers!
Situated a few steps from the sea on glorious Lower Cheung Sha Beach, Bathers is part fine dining restaurant, part laid-back modern beach club. The pillarless dining area seats 120 and the mouthwatering menu is big on seafood and steak, fresh salads and small plates.

We love the sumptuous wagyu beef burger served with Emmental cheese, bacon, fried egg and smoked tomato relish, and the crispy salt and pepper squid with sweet chilli. If you are dining as a group of six or more, go for the delicious Group Feast with its sharing starters and desserts, and a choice of mains. Needless to say, there’s also a full bar complete with draft beer and some seriously good wine.

Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and for breakfast at the weekend. Visit www.bathers.com.hk. [PHOTO COURTESY OF Bathers.]

China bear mui wo

Hang with the Locals at The China Bear!
Perched on the waterfront right next to Mui Wo Ferry Pier, The China Bear has become a Mui Wo institution, popular amongst hikers, beachgoers and locals for the past 20 years. Hunker down on the large outdoor dining area to spend an afternoon watching the ferries go by, or stay late and enjoy a moon rise over Hong Kong.
Always evolving, the menu at the Bear is mostly Mediterranean, with a few Asian favourites and Northern comforts thrown in. The emphasis is on value for money and tasty, yet unpretentious dishes. Check out the weekend breakfast menu – Eggs Benedict, banana pancakes or full English.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, with happy hour from 5pm to 9pm weekdays and breakfast at the weekend. Visit www.chinabear.com.hk. [PHOTOS BY Rachel Sadler]

cabana breeze tung chung

Chill at Cabana Breeze Bar and Grill!
A chic urban oasis right next to the Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung, Cabana Breeze Bar and Grill wows with its Tiki-inspired decor and glorious sea view. The outdoor terrace overlooking T-Bay is a real find, and a great spot for sundowners.
Take your pick from the all-day international menu, which really does have something for everyone. Pizza, fresh from a traditional wood-stone oven, is a speciality and we love the chef’s own Moroccan octopus with tomato and black olive salsa.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Visit www.cabanabreeze.hk. [PHOTO COURTESY OF Cabana Breeze.]

pause cafe mui wo

Unwind at Pause Café!
Pause Café in Mui Wo lives up to its name, with a relaxing ambience that invites you to sit back and… take a pause. The best tables are outdoors on the chic plant-lined shopfront, or you can head inside for a little taste of Bali, complete with rattan lampshades and yet more plants.
Part of the wellness hub of the same name, Pause Café is a great place to fuel up on ultra-healthy light meals, salads and snacks. The small menu is big on vegetarian and vegan dishes – we love the masala veggie bowls, smashed avocado sourdough toasts and fresh-pressed juices. Meat lovers are catered for too, and the chipotle pork tacos are to die for.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Visit www.pause.hk. [PHOTOS BY Rachel Sadler.]

Treasure island beach club

Groove at Treasure Island!
The breeziest hangout in South Lantau, Treasure Island’s Beach Club Restaurant, Sun Terrace and Bar is known for its stunning beachside location and party atmosphere. Eclectic DJ sets, ranging from Ibiza chill-out music to popular dance hits, encourage beachgoers to stay on well past the glorious Pui O sunset.
The menu is packed with timeless beach club favourites like fish and chips, pizza and fried chicken, alongside a good range of vegetarian and vegan dishes. There’s also a dedicated kids’ menu with treats like pasta and fish fingers to please young beachgoers.
Open Fridays 12pm to 10pm, Saturdays 10am to 10pm, and Sundays and public holidays 10am to 8pm. Visit www.treasureislandhk.com. [PHOTOS COURTESY OF Treasure Island.]

Sunset gril sheraton

Enjoy the HighLife at Sunset Grill!
Providing fine alfresco dining from its rooftop bar and restaurant, Sunset Grill at Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung lives up to its classy T-Bay location and Marriott branding. The outdoor terrace boasts first-class views of the sea, the airport and Tuen Mun and provides a five-star dining experience to match.
The heart of the open kitchen is the charcoal grill, which is what makes Sunset a meat-and-seafood lovers’ paradise. Try the whole, line-caught wild Atlantic seabass, or a dish from the 30-day dryaged beef menu. Sip on signature cocktails (Barrel Aged Chocolate Negroni or the Lantau Mary) and fine wine as you look out to sea.
Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and for brunch at the weekend. Visit www.sheratonhongkongtungchung.com. [PHOTOS COURTESY OF Sunset Grill.]

mui wo cooked market

Eat Crab at Mui Wo Cooked Food Market
With its beach-side location and tables overlooking the water, Mui Wo Cooked Food Market is like no other in Hong Kong, apart that is from the bustle, the fiercely sizzling woks and the plastic seating. It’s an open-air market, though covered and shaded, so you’ll want to grab a table near a ceiling fan from which to soak up the views of Silvermine Beach and the surrounding mountains.
You’re here for the moreish, no-frills Cantonese food, and while the menus at each stall are all fairly similar, Wah Kee and Yee Heen are our top picks. Order plates to share, piled high with noodles and the freshest, cheapest seafood imaginable.
Open seven days a week, until 2am most days. No reservation required. [PHOTOS BY Rachel Sadler.]
