Love the natural light of the restaurant. Glad that the restaurant varies its menu on a regular basis and things are not so routine. It is truly authentic Italian food.

We were a party of 5 seniors globe trotters. Service was excellent. Dishes served raw or cooked were of highest quality ingredients. Food and drink presentation was very creative and attractive. We visited the restaurant twice in a week. That is how good the restaurant was.

The food was excellent and the service was friendly. The salmon tapas and spring chicken dishes were good, and the highlight was the lemon cake dessert. Will definitely go back to try other dishes.

Nice view....but they sat us facing in to the restaurant and not looking out! We had to ask them to change the place settings. The service was quite slow and our order was messed up. They did remake a dish but overall I really only enjoyed 1 of the 6 tapas we ordered. I found it overpriced, underseasoned and with poor service. They were out of the wine we wanted, and the waitstaff didn't have any decent recommendations for a different option. And whatever we chose was not good and the waiter was very hesitant to change the wine when we asked. We were annoyed so just kept it. Was very disappointing. The General Manager did try to make things up to us by preparing a new cocktail they were testing out....but it was just that, a test and wasn't good! Unfortunately I wouldn't return.

Had there several times. INo doubt it was a great restaurant with good food and wine selection especially their Span wine choice. The quality of food is flawless and never failed. Highly recommended to whoever likes Spanish cuisine.

Great atmosphere: comfortably-dimmed lighting overlooking Central and cute penguins decorations! Good food: can't miss their traditional Tortilla with Chorizo, Potatoes and Onions Omelet; creative Fried Croquettes of Iberico Ham and Black Truffle; and signature Boston Lobster Juicy Rice.

Very nice food and atmosphere. But I can say require a bit improvement on services - waiter not lead us to the exact table so we were a bit hesitation which table was for us. And one of dish was missed and need double verify.

Food was excellent, staff was polite. However service was incredibly slow. We had to ask for menus, food arrived slowly and even the coffee took a long time to arrive. Given this was a weekday business lunch, and people are on their lunch break a slow service is not ideal. However, again the food was fantastic!

My second visit. Nice venue. Service was good. Had the weekend brunch. Starters were better than the Mains. Wanted to have paella but wasn't that hungry on the day, will go try again later. Churro was my favourite dessert there.

Delicious food with great service, we did the taster menu which covered the best dishes across the entire menu. The gaspacho soup was interesting with the raspberry twist and the scallops were divine.

All are very good especially the atmosphere. It's not easy to find a place as quiet as it in Central. Definitely will go again in order to try different dishes.

Brunch was fine with a reasonable selection for the semi-buffet and choice of mains. The food quality was perhaps not as high as some of the other brunch options at this price point.

LOVE the food here. It never disappoints. Never. Lunch set is also a great deal considering you can get 2-3 course for approximately $300 HKD.

Great food and service. Some portions a little small but everything delicious. Rooftop a bit too noisy because of air conditioning from other buildings. Otherwise we had a great evening

Service was good. The food was nice and well portioned. I found the sangria a little expensive, but it was still good. Overall, I would go back.

The service is good compared to Hong Kong average. Nice view also. But the food (both in terms of quality and quantity) does not worth the price and the paella is simply too salty.

Food was delicious thanks to the Chefs and Management. Staff however were inattentive and made no positive contribution to the dining experience. If anything, they made it worse given the rude looks and attitude.

The service was appalling but the food made up for it. The suckling pig, cheese platter and cerviche were very good. The ambience was good for romantics but too dim to read the menu!

Prices were high and portions were small, two negatives that couldn't be offset by the ambiance alone given that the service was slow and inattentive.
