An enchanting dinning experience at Tosca, 42o meters above sea level. One hundred second floor of the The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong. It was a 15minutes taxi ride from our Hotel and upon arriving, staff greeted us warmly and walk with us to the elevator and we went up to the 102 level. Receptionist lead us to our reserved table and I was in awe to see the beautiful interiors, majestic chandeliers, lighted glass floors, a fountain beside our table and the beautiful view of the Victoria harbour by the window.
Tosca is an Italian restaurant rank as number #11 out of the thousands of restaurants in Hong Kong by the Tripadvisor, and although the place has mixed reviews, I choose this restaurant for our post Valentine’d dinner date (since we spent Valentine’s Day in Disneyland, more about it here) because of the romantic ambiance and the spectacular view. And since we know we will be eating a lot of chinese food everyday during our stay in Hong Kong, this Italian cuisine would be a good break from all of that. And I always love having dinner on high rise buildings for the best view of the city if you notice that on my Instagram account #RyanandSheiladinesontopfloors.

Now let’s talk about the food. Their crispy sour cream house bread was so good and even asked our server Jason some more. For the appetizer we had Chef Pino’s beef carpaccio, my thoughts? Well, I’m really no food critic but it was kinda tasteless for my palette but the beef was very tender and it melts in your mouth. We ordered Seabass with lemon, chicken and sautéed seafood for the main course, this was my favorite from the three, the flavors all together blend well. And last is the Milk risotto, broccoli and wild fennel sausage, hmmm… nothing special. Me and hubby shared all the dishes, and didn’t order any dessert to save it for some original Hong Kong style egg-waffles (Will blog about that soon).
Overall review for Tosca?
- The service was excellent.
- The food was nothing special.
- Price? I think there are better Italian restaurants in Hong Kong that’s worth your money.
- The place was very romantic with a spectacular view.
- Food presentation was average.
- The air-condition that night was unpleasant.
- It took them one hour and a half to serve all three dishes.
Amazing wine cellars as my backdrop.
Outfit details: Pink top and Velvet pants from Zara, Black Heattech turtleneck from Uniqlo, Faux fur mules from a local shoe shop in Hong Kong, Obi belt from Mango, Bag from Chanel.
It wasn’t that cold that night so my last minute outfit was perfect. Top, pants (got it on sale) and shoes are new, and I’m glad it work together as what I have thought of it in my mind. And the Uniqlo Heattech gave me just the right of warmth to my body for the 19 degrees celsius weather.
