Trying western food is a bit of hit and miss in Hong Kong. But, this tiny restaurant has exceeded our expectation. We walked along Elgin Street, looking at the displayed menu at various places, we thought Brasserie Le Fauchon offered a good and reasonably priced menu. The space is small but we didn't feel cramped, just cozy and comfortable. The... More

Within the proximity of the Soho area, Le Fauchon is one of those small cosy restaurants where you can relax and enjoy good food. We had lunch there the other day. Service was decent enough and price was reasonable.

It's like heated fast-food with higher price and better setting, soufflé is too sweet and you can taste not melted sugar, duck leg was over cooked and with packed butter I feel like eating flight meal

Le Fauchon is a rather expensive French restaurant in central Hong Kong. The problem is, it's a cheap imitation of real French cuisine. Like in real high-end French restaurants, they serve huge plates with tiny portions, but unlike real French restaurants, the food is not exquisite. We went with a group of 10 and almost every one of our dishes... More

The menu looked interesting as we walked by, so we popped in. The food was superb and the price very reasonable from the set menu. Service was also excellent. In fact the whole experience was faultless. The lamb shank (wife) and breast of duck (me) were both truly excellent and the excellent wine list topped off the experience. We ate... More

My husband and I ate dinner at the is restaurant last night. We were attracted by the menu that we read on the street. My husband would probably give a better rating of his meal than I would of mine. I had stuffed mushrooms for my appetizer. He had the ravioli. We both ordered the tomato bisque soup. I ordered... More

We just had dinner at Le Fauchon this evening. Each of the three of us had a 4-course set dinner for USD 37 each. This is a very, very good deal in Hong Kong, especially for good French food. We also had a good bottle of French red. I just couldn't resist not having the bottle as the price was... More

We went to Le Fauchon a few nights ago. Pros: This is without doubt the the BEST VALUE FOR MONEY French restaurant in Central and SOHO. They offer a 3 course meal for 268 HKD and a 4 course meal for 298 HKD. Yet despite the fair prices, the food is very yummy. Our Escargot were nicely cooked. Our US... More

French food is always right and the best to choose when really hungry. Living part time in Hong Kong demands french food somedays. So climb the central escalator up and up until you get to La Brasseri Fauchon at Elgin street. Just by the stairs. Great atmosphere and staff that are french. Great concept and so french it can be...

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
