Among them, Arcane, led by the Aussie chef Shane Osborn, which offers cuisine based on “down-to-earth recipes and quality ingredients”; Kaiseki Den by Saotome is a restaurant relocated and renamed in 2017, where chef Saotome serves Japanese cuisine based on the freshest food in season, like his signature dishes of sea urchin truffle rice and char-grilled wagyu beef.

With panoramic views of the harbour, diners can enjoy refined Chinese cuisine, such as poached grouper in fish soup with crispy rice and stuffed crab shell. Two Cantonese restaurants were also awarded one star including Ying Jee Club and Yee Tung Heen.
