Dining at the French Window Brasserie and Bar

The French Window is grand and spacious, a rarity in HK, you have to walk through a long tall corridor before you are greeted with a grand dining area.

There is a gorgeous long red bench sofa that divides the room.


At the far end there is a chic seafood bar.
We sat by the window and had two different Moët & Chandon champagnes to pair with the food.

Moët & Chandon Impérial



Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial


★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Started off with oysters and I had La Lune and Fine de Claire.
Both were fresh and flawless.



★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Next we had Lobster with wild berry dressing and black truffle which paired nicely with the Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial.

Each piece of lobster was springy and delicious.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Then came this sinful dish of Pan fried duck foie gras with jus, toasted brioche and gratinated turnips which paired nicely with the sharp Moët & Chandon Impérial which balanced the oiliness of the foie gras.
The brioche was just as sinful because it was soaked in butter and pan fried.

Anis flavoured roasted sea bass, fennel confit in Pastis and potato mousseline

The seabass was delicate which went well with the silky mash.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Crispy suckling pig with dauphinoise gratin, braised endive and creamed mustard gravy

The suckling pig was my favourite because the meat was tender with crispy skin that was not fat.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Halibut filet topped with breadcrumb and curry crust, served with white wine braised leeks and mussels

The mussels here are amazing, same for the French mussels below because they are FRESH and SWEET!

Raspberry souffle:

The raspberry souffle was pink and fluffy inside with a lovely raspberry taste.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Apple thin tart:

The apple tart was thin and crispy topped with thin apple slices.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
French lemon pie topped with meringue:

The lemon pie was my favourite with tart lemon filling on a thin shortcrust tart.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
Crème brûlée

The creme brulee was silky with a strong eggy taste.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆
To finish off I had this lovely ginger and pear tea which had a nice musky pear taste.
