View 62 By Paco Roncero, Hong Kong - A Pictorial

Having tried the food of 2 Michelin starred Chef Paco Roncero (protege of the legendary Ferran Adrià of El Bulli) at a special dinner hosted @ Atlantic Dining Room a couple of years ago, we were naturally very excited to try his namesake restaurant in Hong Kong.

But alas! It was not meant to be. The food wasn't that surprising and faltered quite a bit in the taste department. It tasted and felt nowhere near my previous experience. Service was excellent though and so was the view, which offered us a rotating view of the surroundings as well as Victoria Harbour. But at HKD 6,576 (~ SGD 1080) for 6 pax, it was hardly worth it!

Final Verdict:

Ambience: 8.5/10
Service: 7.5/10
Food: 6/10
Value for money: 4/10

Overall: 6.5/10

Address: 62/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai
