Fleur de Sel is one of the few places you can get authentic French crêpes in Hong Kong.
Ordering here is usually a choice between sweet crepes or savory galettes. To choose which one’s better is a challenge, so we suggest deciding this one for yourself!
- Order the la fermière if you’re having a hard time choosing the perfect order. It’s a savory galette with cheese, potatoes, bacon, and fresh tomatoes. Being made with only familiar ingredients, it’s hard not to go crazy over this one.

Yum Cha is one of the famous places to get quality dim sum for the whole family to enjoy. Don’t be surprised if you find your kids begging you to go back here.
After all, because of their cute colorful buns (some of which are even designed with lovable characters), it’s a great place for kids to enjoy local cuisine without MSG.
They have numerous stores all over Hong Kong, by the way. However, the Central would probably be the most famous one.
Our recommended dish is the BBQ piggy bun. Designed to look like piglets, these buns are basically cha siu bao with a cute, unexpected cartoonish twist that kids will love.

Since the Italians are a family-oriented bunch, a lot of Italian restaurants serve food family-style. For that, Fiamma is one of your best options.
Examples of their most sought-after dishes are the farmer’s breakfast (eggs, avocado, chickpea hummus, mixed leaves, portobello mushroom, and grilled tomatoes), quattro formaggi pizza, and penne all’arrabbiata.

Fini’s is an Italian American restaurant that incorporates Hong Kong flavors in its menu, making it unique yet familiar to every local.
A lot of their dishes have sharing options, so this restaurant is highly recommended for large groups. A few examples of their must-try’s are the typhoon shelter crab linguine (fresh blue crab, Hong Kong fermented black bean, pickled chili, and green onion) and the margherita pizza.
We believe that a visit to Fini’s wouldn’t be complete without ordering spaghetti with red sauce and the buffalo chicken deluxe pizza.

- If you like to try their sweet crêpe, our top recommendation would be the sunday crepe. It’s made with bananas, strawberry, gelato, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream.

More of a playground than a restaurant, this place has a coffee lounge where adults can interact while drinking lattes and munching on some roasted chicken marinara wrap.
So, why did we put them here? Because surprisingly, their dishes are quite good. They also have a kid’s menu so you can order your little one a healthy meal after a day of playing!
They also host birthday parties, corporate family days, and other family-friendly events. Everything from fun activities like face painting and catering services would be managed by Baumhaus so no need to lift a finger!
