In a room attached to the dining area Gitone offers art classes where you can explore your pottery skills, though let’s face it, you’ll probably produce a plate as ugly as Tiger Woods’ fall from grace. You can also learn how to draw or paint, and even though art is one of those things where children’s work looks the same quality as adults’ - there’s even classes for kiddies.
As the sun sets Gitone turns into a private kitchen complete with a pair of talking parrots. Whilst charming at first, the green one soon gets on your nerves but is fortunately offset by the food. Let’s be clear from the off, Gitone offers high-end, authentic Chinese fare so you can expect the likes of jellyfish and abalone. If that’s not your thing, don’t bother – but if it is, it’s a must.
They offer three 5-course set menus priced at $380, $580 and $880 respectively with highlights including tea leaves smoked chicken and garoupa with lobster. The food is delicate and the setting informal, while the HK$380 menu in particular is immense value. If that’s not enough to tempt you - they also sell little deli treats such as olives and parma ham.
Git down there.
