This three-storey rustic pub and steakhouse by Swire Restaurant Group is a great place to chill and enjoy good food - no wonder, as the executive chef is Joey Sergentakis, formerly chef de cuisine at Café Gray Deluxe.

The restaurant has three distinct areas: Mrs Fox, the street-level bar with an alfresco drinking area, serves casual bites ranging from HK$60 to HK$165, with cocktails around HK$70; Mr Fox comprises a private dining area on the top floor, and the restaurant on the first floor. The menu at Mr Fox offers international cuisine with Asian flavours and consists of several sections such as raw, with dishes such as oysters and seafood platters, charcuterie and starters - we loved the barbecue duck consommé with poached foie gras (HK$75) and the braised Iberico pork collar with a sour plum glaze (HK$125). The mains are mostly steak and fish options. We went for the 22oz bone-in rib-eye (HK$410), which was cooked to perfection with a side of barbeque spiced hand-cut fries (HK$35).

We also tried the whole snapper charred in Balinese spices (HK$165) with water spinach, pickled stem lotus and sambal matah - it was perfectly cooked, and the subtle spices did not overwhelm the fish.

For dessert, the 72 per cent Valrhona chocolate soufflé (HK$80) with passion fruit sauce and the lemon poppy seed cake (HK$75) with wild blueberries, Himalayan salt and olive oil are worth trying. Cheese boards are available at HK$95 for three or HK$165 for five. We finished with a sambuca (HK$70).
