The hotel’s 6 dining venues have been created by famous names in restaurant design such as Japan’s Spin Design Studio and Wonderwall, promising guests gourmet dining in stylish environments. Heading the offerings is Ozone, proudly positioned on the top floor making it the world’s highest bar. Here, guests can indulge in signature cocktails, Asian tapas and Japanese specialties to the beats of the resident DJ and stunning panoramas of Victoria Harbour. Tin Lung Heen serves authentic Cantonese cuisine paired with a premium selection of teas, while Tosca offers Southern Italian cuisine in a dramatically stylish environment.
