Unlike most restaurants and bars, these five in Hong Kong need no reservation.

Yardbird

This izakaya-style restaurant has a year-round walk-in only policy. In our experience however, it is best to arrive 15 minutes before the restaurant opens to avoid the queue. Have a pre-drink in the near by Oolaa bar while you wait.

Our favourites include the KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) and house sake.

Address: 33 Bridges Street, Tai Ping Shan

Brickhouse

Tucked away in a back alley in the bustling Lan Kwai Fong, the Mexican eatery is known for fresh tacos and signature cocktails. It’s also the prime starting point for you and your loved one to join the party crowd after dinner.

Address: 20 D’Aguilar Street, Central

Fish School

A party of two would be seated at the chef’s counter surrounding the restaurant’s open kitchen. The energetic atmosphere of this place is sure to drive your first date jitters away.

The eatery’s hip neighbourhood is also perfect for a romantic stroll after dinner.

Address: 100 Third Street, Sai Ying Pun

Skye Bar

The rooftop bar in Causeway Bay’s Pullman (the former Park Lane Hong Kong) is one of our best kept secrets. The beautifully-lit bar boasts a breathtaking view of Victoria Harbour and Victoria Park. Impress your date with a bespoke cocktail.

Address: 310 Gloucester Road, Causeway Bay

Secret Ingredients

Nothing beats a home-cooked candle-lit dinner. Secret Ingredients delivers everything you’ll need for a perfect meal to your door. Their Valentine’s Day special is a surf-n-turf risotto with filet mignon, plus buttered shrimp with a mandarin orange salad and dessert.
