PEAK CAFE 121 Peak Road, The Peak Tel: 2849-7868 Open: Monday-Friday 10.30am-11.30pm, Saturday and Sunday 8am-midnight Lush and civilised, there is nowhere quite so perfectly Hong Kong (or so perfectly not Hong Kong) as the Peak Cafe. It fits the bill on a host of occasions and the food is more-or-less reliable. Dishes, from Indian curries to barbecued meats to Asian noodles, appeal to all comers. And of course there's a little fusion too, mostly well-tempered bids like smoked salmon on naan bread. There is a keenly-priced kids' menu, which the youngsters can colour in and - one of the less appreciated advantages of al fresco dining - cause minimal damage when they drop crayons underfoot. In summer, choose elegant but satisfying salads, or snack on wholesome nibbles while knocking back one of the more ingenious cocktails. Samosas are packed with peas and potatoes, and nicely spiked with spices. However, a plateful of four should be shared to avoid deep-fried overload - and the accompanying very pureed mango chutney doesn't quite stand up to the job. Crockery is fresh and modern, views are beautiful, and service is warm, occasionally veering on the deferential. Sitting outside, even if you are only nursing a frothy cappuccino, is about as good as the restaurant scene gets. HARRY RAMSDEN'S 3-4 Wu Chung House 213 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai Tel: 2832-9626 Open: Monday-Saturday 11.30am-11pm, Sunday 8am-11pm The neatly-aproned Yorkshire waitresses are a little thinner on the ground, the batter is a lot lighter and crisper, and the list of choices is growing: but post-colonial Harry Ramsden's remains as much an institution as ever. With the Rugby Sevens again approaching, expect the place to be packed to the rafters with beery bonhomie and extended bellies. They may be drawn by the concept but the food is certainly not this restaurant's weak suit. Huge slabs of fresh fish come dipped in a new improved and surprisingly airy batter, accompanied by a mound of chips. Chips are of the big, fat variety and become less tempting as they cool. There is also poached fish, and little saucers of peas, as nature intended or mushy, 'the caviare of the north'. The truly great thing about this place is that you can take the family along on Sunday night, spend less than $500, and keep everyone happy. Parents can take refuge in newspapers and ale and children can play to their hearts' content.
