Has the R66 restaurant reopened?

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the revolving restaurant R66 has reopened? I understand it closed for renovations in 2010 and was due to open Winter 2011 (according to their website) but I'm trying to find out when exactly it will reopen (if it hasn't already).

Thanks for your help,

Diane

Diane - even if it has, I would suggest you go somewhere else. We went there once and the only place that we had a worse meal was the Jumbo

Open Rice still shows it as being under renovation.

Agree with Steveben. It USED to be a nice place to see the view of HK up there, but now with the new buildings that are super skyscrapers like IFC and ICC.....this revolving restaurant is a definite passe place for locals or tourists.

it was a nice place to enjoy the view, but just about everyone I know who ever went there said it was a lousy place to have dinner.

A couple did say however, that the buffet lunch was at least edib

Just an update to your question as I was wondering the same thing. After researching a bit on the net, I found that R66 will be reopened under a new name "View62 by Paco Roncero" in May 2012.

They have hired a fantastic chef who used to cook at La Terrazzas in the Casino de Madrid - a very exclusive private club but restaurant was open to the public and run by El Bulli people. Hear that will re-open in June.

The new restaurant has been launched in June and its worth a look for being the only revolving restaurant in hong kong & a good location to explore the surrounding - heritages & local markets.

Looks interesting........But the question is: (drum roll) HOW did the R-66 restaurant become the View 62??? Did they cut four floors off the building?

(Or was the old name one of the earliest examples of HK landlords deceptively marking up floor numbers......)
