There are plenty of places to pick up a meal in Hong Kong – the city is almost unparalleled in its dedication to dining out – and there is food from around the world on offer at all hours of the day. While Cantonese and Chinese classics are the predominant cuisine available, out in Sheung Wan you can get yourself a taste of the Med in the form of Bayta on Hollywood Road. They offer specialities from Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and beyond, as well as a huge selection of all-natural wines and a special aperitif from 5pm to 7pm on Monday - Saturday nights. Reserve yourself a table and head on over for a meal that will take you from the South China Sea to the Mediterranean in no time.
There is a plethora of ways to enjoy the fruits of the South China Sea in Hong Kong, with fish and seafood on offer in every restaurant in the city. At Bayta, however, their focus is on a different ocean altogether, with a Mediterranean menu packed with the delicacies of the deep spanning from Greece, Turkey and Lebanon all the way over to Spain and Italy. You can reach them via the train station at Sheung Wan or Sai Ying Pun – they’re between the two on Hollywood Road – and when you make your appearance, you can be sure of a feed that is well worth getting excited about. Let us talk you through the menu.
Bayta offer up homemade bread, and that is the logical place to start your meal on Hollywood Road. Follow it up with a vegetables & goat cheese terrine, before moving onto some sea bass a la plancha, cooked Spanish style and served up with a cauliflower declination. Make sure you pair your meal with some of Bayta’s wines: there is a huge range to choose from, sourced from all around the world. Book your table now and head on over to Sheung Wan for some of the finest Mediterranean food available anywhere in Hong Kong.
Charming restaurant with delicious Mediterranean food. Staff couldn't be nicer. Interesting menu, a number of well-chosen meze appetizers, all good, entrées delicious, and nice wines. Pleasant atmosphere in what used to be a furniture store.
Food was great as well as wine. (First time trying for organic wine and pretty good.) Waitress was even nicer. We had a great time. Will definitely visit again.
As always, attentive service, nice atmosphere and very good food. We will definitely return. Outstanding vegetarian fare, good wine and delicious desserts. Would recommend highly.
Amazing lunch at Bayta. Savory food. Beautifully presented. Tasty! Besides, the place is nice and the wine list quite unique in Hong Kong. Selection of small vineyards, mostly biodynamics. I will certainly come back.
My wife and I visited for dinner on a quiet Saturday evening. The restaurant was mostly empty - but it was a holiday weekend in HK and I would fully expect it to be much busier normally. Service was attentive and charming. Great recommendation on the wine and which dishes to pick. I really enjoyed the eggplant starter (cold dip) as well as the vegetable and goat cheese roulade. On the mains, the sea bass felt a little over-sauced but still tasty. I think it's just a personal preference on how you like dish. The special pasta of the day was a nice surprise - cooked just right with a nice vegetable (char - I think) and cheese sauce. Finished it off by sharing a tasty lemon tart with avocado ice-cream. A recommendation from the staff - and it really hit the spot.
Interesting choices. Very good food. Vegetarian options were exceptional. Wine options were great and sommelier was very helpful. Good service. Will definitely return and would recommend.
Attentive service in a cosy environment. Small but well executed menu. Reasonably priced wine list. Definitely worthwhile a visit. Will be back at some point.
Great cozy ambience, delicious vegetarian food, friendly welcoming staff! The 'couscous' made from celeriac with vegetables broth was our favourite. Totally mpressive. Will definite revisit.
Loved the pastilla and mezzes. Mezzes were filling and has some twists to it. Fantastic hummus! Lovely decor, great service and I'll be back again.
We really enjoyed the experience very creative cuisine with surprising mix such as the avocado iced cream and the lemon tart. We strongly recommend it!
