Located in an open area on the first floor of The Landmark, the decor embraces and emphasises the restaurant’s central location. Tables are well-spaced and of a decent size, with some booths overlooking the buzz of the shops below. The restaurant is popular with ladies taking a break from shopping and local office workers wanting a convenient business lunch.A varied menu means there is something to please everybody, whether they like meat, fish, pasta, pizza or salad. The Matsuzaka beef soup (HK$150) consists of A5 Japanese beef, tofu and vegetables immersed in a clear, light broth which is poured from a glass teapot. The subtle, delicately flavoured dish is a light start to the meal. The signature dish of lobster linguine (HK$220) contains a generous portion of lobster in its shell. The pasta is lightly flavoured with minimal sauce ensuring that the lobster is the dominant flavour. Spaghetti vongole (HK$200) focuses more on the pasta and is light on clams, with only five on the plate. However, the pasta is perfectly al dente and overall the dish is tasty. The desserts are well-presented, especially the Turkish delight . An unusual dish to see on a menu in Hong Kong, the creative interpretation deserves credit. Rose flavoured spun sugar and small pieces of Turkish delight sit atop a bed of rosewater ice cream that is decorated with rose petals. This floral sweet makes a refreshing change. Chocolate pudding is a little overcooked and could do with more liquid chocolate oozing out.The wine list is fairly limited - especially by the glass. Only a sparkling wine, two whites and two reds are available and, although they are good value, they may not please wine lovers who would normally choose a higher quality glass of wine. Wine by the bottle offers a slightly wider choice, yet by no means expansive.Service is brisk at times, probably due to the restaurant being frequented by diners who have limited time. The main course is delivered a little too soon after the appetiser and the staff is very keen to take final orders and bring the bill, delivering it to the table 20 minutes before the 9:00 pm closing time. It is not a restaurant for a lingering meal and is probably better suited to lunch rather than dinner.The restaurant’s upmarket and convenient location means that it is not a cheap eat. A three-course meal for two persons will cost around HK$700, not including wine.
