We were just wandering around Sunday afternoon and decided to stop at the first place we saw. Thankfully it was F. A. B. Xavier was super friendly and was quick to set us up with a table and drinks. I ordered the Cobb Salad. It was the best one I've ever had. And I eat them a lot. My husband... More

Stumbled across this for pre- dinner drinks but ended up staying here for the lovely food! Try the dips and bread, delicious!

Love this place. Always have the seafood and pasta dish they have. What a great fusion between French cuisine and American bistro. The staff is really nice. They speak French and English.

Spend time there a couple of times. The staff is friendly, but owner or manager a bit arrogant. Wide selection of drinks and bar food. All well presented. Popular venue.

Great place to watch the crowds drift off the escalator and on to Wyndham Street/Hollywood Road. Always busy at weekends and a good place for a glass of wine. Not renowned for its food though.

F.A.B. is a French - American style bistro that we like to dine at from time to time, serving up nicely presented dishes and pretty good food in Central district. We usually order their signature Prime Cheese Burger (HK$158), which has been one of the better burgers we have found around Hong Kong in recent years. Sadly, while prices have... More

The food is really average here. It is mainly a french joint where people catch up for drinks. Set up is a bit messy and the staff is usually very friendly...with their friends. I would definitely recommend for quiet or romantic dinner as it is super noisy but can a good spot to catch up with friends for drinks after... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
