The Gallery has an extensive menu offering tasty BBQ’d meats such (steak, ribs, lamb racks) cooked on an al fresco flaming BBQ right before your eyes, freshly caught fish as well as salads and plenty of choice for those veggies amongst us.

This is a nice, simple, beachside restaurant with tables on the beach and in the main (outside but under cover) restaurant area. The food is a mix of Western and Asian, and is very tasty. I can recommend the veggie curry and spring rolls, with home-made sweet chilli sauce.

South African restaurant with the kind of service and care you get from the chef and the team makes that warmth turn into friendship The food is the best on Lantau island and even better than most of the expensive soho restaurants I've been to And it's not part of a "chain" serving mass market food This is real home cooking at its best - recipes you will want to try to recreate but easier just have the great comfort and charm of being there enjoying the garden the sea and must of all the friends you will meet! Bobotie with the special rice, the tender chicken breast, and crispy succulent fish and chips are all served with great quality wine! And the best secret are the lovely potatoes that are au gratin and will have you begging for more! - they inspired me to come back several times for "seconds"! Great job whoever is in charge! I never write reviews but you were the best on my trip - hope to see you every chance I get!

Good atmosphere, pleasant service and good food. White wine and garlic mussels, salt and pepper squid and the fried whitebait well worth the try as are the Hawaiian beers.

Sightseeing
Also known as the "Venice of Hong Kong", Tai O is a hot tourist spot for both foreigners and residents of other parts of Hong Kong, despite damage by a fire in July 2000. The pang uks, a kind of stilt house, built right over the waterway are still quite scenic. A rope bridge tended by local women used to be quite popular with visitors, but it has been replaced with a steel pedestrian bridge in October 1996. The traditional salted fish and shrimp paste and storefronts at Tai O. For a small fee, some residents will take tourists out on their boats along the river and for short jaunts into the sea. Many tourists come to Tai O specifically to take these trips to see Chinese white dolphins. It is also a good place to see the sunset. Old Tai O Police Station, a Grade II historic building, has been turned into a boutique hotel called Tai O Heritage Hotel by Hong Kong Heritage Conservation Foundation. The hotel has nine rooms and a restaurant. The hotel has been open and operational since 2012.[6] Tai O Rural Committee Historic and Cultural Showroom, located within the centuries-old fishing village of Tai O, exhibits relics of the local community's past, including fishing tools and dismantled old structures. The showroom was founded by the Tai O Rural Committee and all the items in its collection were donated by local residents.

The remote Po Lin Monastery, hidden away by lush mountains, became a popular attraction when the extraordinary Tian Tan Buddha statue (informally known as the Big Buddha) was erected in 1993. Sitting 34 metres high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia. The eyes, lips, incline of the head and right hand, which is raised to deliver a blessing to all, combine to bring a humbling depth of character and dignity to the massive Buddha, which took 12 years to complete. Climb the 268 steps for a closer look at this remarkable statue, and to enjoy the sweeping mountain and sea views that can be seen from its base. Opposite the statue, the Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong’s most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed ‘the Buddhist World in the South’. Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colourful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents. You can also enjoy a meal at its popular vegetarian restaurant.
