In Hong Kong there are restaurants that represent the best of the world’s cooking, and on Hoi Kwong Street in Quarry Bay, there is an outpost of bullfighting, afternoon laziness and sexy waiters, in the form of Spanish restaurant Taverna del Mar. The chefs here are Barcelona natives, and they bring the authentic flavours of their homeland to Hong Kong, so book a table now and head on down for a fiesta.
Opening a restaurant based on the fruits of the ocean in the heart of Hong Kong – one of the best cities in the world for eating seafood – is a daunting business, so it pays to do something new and interesting with it. One Quarry Bay restaurant in doing just that, right on Hoi Kwong Street, in the form of Taverna del Mar. The restaurant’s Spanish-born chefs serve up specialities from the seas around their homeland, as well as a wide variety of other tapas and Iberian dishes.
Catch the Metro to Quarry Bay, wander over to Hon Way Mansion on Hoi Kwong Street, then take a trip to the heart of Spanish cuisine. Try Taverna Del Mar’s famous paella – packed with seafood – or the Spanish pizza, topped with anchovies and vegetables. Non-seafood fans are welcome to the Hong Kong restaurant’s oxtail stew with potatoes, or the roast pork, or the roasted spring chicken, or any of their other Spanish specialities.
Quirky little private kitchen. Food was fantastic but the fact it was $300/400/500 per person wasn't communicated. Also when we ordered the $400 option we really should've been told it was way too much food for two people, it was enough for 4-6. Only drink option is sangria which seems too sweet to match the food. Lovely people, great food and would go again in a group. Not so good for just 2.
Amazing little hidden place. Great and tasty food, we shall be coming back for more for sure! I loved the black paella... ... See you soon again:)
