Probably the best food in DB. It's been here long enough. Average fare in good surroundings by the bay. If only the food tasted as good as the view. But anyway, try not to have soggy chips spoil your evening drink by the beach.

This was the only restaurant which managed to fit 7 of us. I was initially skeptical as menus were worn and there was little choice. The staff seemed like they could not be bothered too! To our surprise though, the food was excellent which has brought this review from maybe a 3 star to 4. The burger (well done) was... More

A friend took us here who frequents Hemingways. Unfortunately the night we went there it was raining, but it was still good we just had to sit inside out of the weather. Ideally if it is fine and sunny you would sit outside to enjoy the views. The beers were cold, the drinks were good and the food was pretty... More

not much to say, but that it is the bar to pick around there. The boss is easygoing, cocktails generous, no stress whatsoever

Great Sunday session had. Located in Discovery Bay which is a quick ferry ride from Central. The Pub is located beside the beach and very close to the bustling Sunday Market. The happy hour was from 4-7pm....there is a good range of beers... Staff are very friendly... the pub food was great. Great spot for a pre-flight/airport drink :)

This is great place for a nice weekend afternoon tea or lunch when you can sit by the beech sipping your beers. Great environment, food taste good and service is above average. The only heart attack is when you see the bill! Well, this is in discovery bay! What will you expect? 周末用餐好地方, 坐在海滩旁享受你喜爱的啤酒是人生的乐趣。餐饮味道,环境都一流,服务也不错但到买单时你会心脏病爆发!这是一个高档的区域呀,你还要怎样?

Great restaurant/bar on the sea front. Food is always really tasty and fresh, and the atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxed.

Usual Friday evening in Hemingway's. Nice service, all averagely pleasant. Except... Fish & Chips next to the sea?.. Terrible!! Tasteless, soggy batter on tasteless fish, tasteless over-cooked chips. You need to do better than that Hemingway's.

Lovely view and the happy hour drinks are very reasonably priced. A very nice way to watch the sun set and have a chat. The service is ok. The food is pretty average pub fare to be honest but ok.
