The Bay Restaurant, Lamma Charming & Secluded French Restaurant

[25/04/12] 

Lamma’s probably our favourite day trip island, but it gets hectic and the eating can be one dimensional. Or so we thought. The Bay has been around for a while but we only recently dined there for supper. The beach and the restaurant can look a little tired in the day so you’d be forgiven for giving it a miss, but in the evening, overlooking the sea, it's magic. It’s one of the best spots we’ve found in Hong Kong, so long as you come with napalm levels of mosquito repellent.

The food is French/Italian which offers another pleasant change from the usual Lamma fare and the quality is fairly high. Our favourite dish was the goat’s cheese salad but you can also tuck into the likes of pan fried foie gras, carpaccio of beef, mushroom and asparagus risotto, lamb chops and sea bream. The other exceptional thing about The Bay is the price. Mains are about HK$125, which when you’re tucking into red meat, would make the protestors outside HSBC down their megaphones.

The Bay is actually situated on Mo Tat Wan rather than Sok Kwu Wan and that’s why it’s far less busy. In fact there’s probably more Rainbow Restaurants alone on Lamma than there are buildings on Mo Tat Wan. It all adds to the detached charm of The Bay which offers corkage for HK$80/bottle, a particularly dangerous feature when you also count the ‘boaties’ (roadies’ naval friends) consumed on the way over from Aberdeen.

It Bays for itself.
