Combining stunning panoramic views and the best alfresco dining with the highest quality ingredients, Harbourside Grill captures the beauty and essence of Hong Kong.
Few dining destinations possess the majesty of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. With the dramatic skyline of Hong Kong Island, backdropped by renowned Victoria Peak, the city’s harbour is among the world’s most famous. Diners can now make the most of the 180-degree unobstructed vistas of the city at Harbourside Grill which offer phenomenal alfresco dining.
Dining on the Water’s Edge
Located at the tip of the Ocean Terminal Extension Harbour City, in Tsim Sha Tsui, Harbourside Grill delivers a thrilling multi-faceted dining experience thanks to innovative cuisine, ground-breaking mixology and crisp, attentive service. The restaurant’s main dining room caters to 65 guests, ensuring an intimate and elegant dining setting backdropped by the glittering cityscape, visible through floor-to-ceiling windows. Dressed with rich burgundy leather and glossy parquet timber floors, the space is warm and inviting thanks to inspired lighting, which serves to delineate the main dining room from the spacious cocktail bar.
The result is a space that evolves with the passing of the day, capturing the mood of the city as it transitions into dusk and then night, making for the perfect destination for romantic dining, special celebrations or corporate entertaining.
The Best Spot in the City for Sundowners
In contrast to the formal dining room, Harbourside Grill’s expansive terrace caters to 80 guests and promises the best sunsets in the city. The use of concrete pavers, comfortable café-style seating, large lounge suites, marble-topped tables and broad umbrellas create a sophisticated yet accessible space in which guests can sample from the restaurant’s comprehensive cocktail and wine lists, or order from the terrace-specific menu. A spectacular setting for pre-dinner sunset drinks, leisurely weekend lunches or special occasions, the terrace promises to be one of the city’s hottest dining locales.
Cooking with Passion
Helming the kitchen at Harbourside Grill is Executive Chef Armand Sablon. Born and raised in Brighton, England by British and French parents, he was exposed to the culinary arts from a young age, helping his mother in the kitchen to prepare traditional family fare, and inspired by his grandfather, who was a baker in France. A recipient of the coveted Roux Scholarship, Chef Sablon trained under Marc Haeberlin at three Michelin-starred Auberge de l’lll in Alsace, one of the finest restaurants in France. Chef Sablon has also worked in the kitchens of some of London’s leading hotels, including The Lanesborough, the London Hilton on Park Lane, the Zetter Hotel, and Hotel Café Royal in Regent Street, where he oversaw all outlets within the hotel.
Contemporary Cuisine with French Flare
At Harbourside Grill, Chef Sablon presents a grill-centric menu laced with French finesse, offering diners a refined culinary experience.
Key to the menus at Harbourside Grill are the finest cuts of meat, cooked in a Spanish Josper Grill, a specialist oven that achieves extremely high temperatures, forming an instantaneous crust around the meat while trapping in natural juices to enrich the flavour.
