This summer, Hung Hom’s dining scene gains a spectacular harbourfront Mediterranean gastronomic haven, helmed by The Silver Oak Group

Situated on the ground floor of the 5-star Harbour Grand Kowloon Hotel, steps away from the Hung Hom promenade, this brand-new dining concept promises a fresh taste of the Mediterranean basin’s most prized dishes all offered with panoramic views of the iconic Victoria Harbour.

The Bayside’s spacious venue covers indoor and terrace dining, offering a bright and comfortable backdrop for seaside dining and special celebrations. With an extensive menu featuring Mediterranean flavours from Valencia to Venice; selections include fresh oysters, zesty ceviches, delectable tapas, homemade pastas, in-house dry-aged meats, globally-sourced seafood dishes lined with an exclusive wine-list and exciting cocktails, each tempting the diner to relax, imbibe and bathe in the atmosphere of a soon-to-be, ‘place-to-see-and-be-seen’.

Boutique Design of Interior and Patio with Stunning Sea Views

The Bayside’s warm and welcoming interiors have been styled by renowned Hong Kong design virtuoso, Hernan Zanghellini, and his team at Zanghellini & Holt Associates. Enter the restaurant, and be greeted by an elaborate arrangement of sapphire-toned vintage hand-painted mosaic tiles, carefully selected to provide a welcoming charm. Shades of blue and orange enclose the space, echoing the picturesque sunsets that vividly glow above the open Mediterranean Sea. Lounge seating with chic terrazzo tables are artfully arranged throughout.

The 6,000 sq. ft. space includes indoor seating, and a generous outdoor patio where guests can dine al-fresco. The Bayside can accommodate up to 220 guests, marking its potential as a venue for large-scale events and wedding celebrations. The open-kitchen displaying the bespoke dry-age meat-cellar is located at the heart of the restaurant, providing a multisensory gastronomic experience bound to impress. The open bar is conveniently situated adjacent to the open-kitchen, where guests can enjoy expertly handcrafted cocktails, imported beers, or house-infused gins. Private-dining areas are also available for group celebrations.
