The perfect summer evening at Gaia Ristorante

At Gaia Ristorante, they are now serving Al Fresco Afternoon Tea from 3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. everyday which costs HKD$198 and includes an item from the afternoon snack menu with a choice of house wine, cocktails, mocktails and soft drinks.

The location couldn’t be better in the heart of Central where everyone passes by so their food has to be top notch to stay there.

Most evenings that I walk past, it is always crowded with people having drinks.
The afternoon menu was quite good because they have roman style pizzas which is fit for two people.

For lucky people who get off work at 5:30, the afternoon tea is perfect for early dinner.

The inside of the restaurant is nice as well as the alfresco area outside.

Here is what we had:
Pina colada:

Started off with this cooling pina colada which was not too sweet with a balanced coconut and pineapple taste.

We also had the Spritz which is an Italian cocktail made of prosecco and a bitter.
This had a nice orange taste to it.
Calamari fritti:

This was delicately fried calamari served with three different mayonnaises: aioli, chili and squid ink.
The squid ink mayonnaise was the best.
Pizza Margherita:

This was a very thin pizza topped with mozzarella, basil leaves and tomato.
The pizza was big enough for two.
For Maggio:
There were lots of things on this platter:
olives, walnut, sweet fig bread and mustard fruit.

Mustard fruit is candied fruit which is sweet and great with cheeses.

On the cheese platter was saffron cheese, pecorino, goats cheese, tomino and talegio.
My favourite was the tomino and pecorino because they were flavourful.
The fig bread was really nice and soft with lots of fig in it.
