The Season to Indulge at Swire Restaurants
Swire Restaurants is embracing the holiday spirit at the group’s acclaimed restaurants, offering a wide range of set menus and specials in four diverse locations.
From classic European flavours at the elegant The Continental, authentic French fare at Plat du Jour, casual gathering with friends and loved ones at Mr & Mrs Fox, or convenient ready-made meals and deli items from Public Deli to share on-the-go or at home, Swire Restaurants invites guests for heartwarming celebrations of any size or setting in this festive season.
Indulge in the holiday spirit this season with The Continental’s specially created Festive Tasting Menu available for dinner throughout December. Follow us through the enchanted glass doors to the Winter Garden, where guests may revel in the magic of the festive season through our cozy Terrace Menu.
The five-course Festive Tasting Menu starts with Big Eye Tuna Tartare with black truffles, followed by Foie Gras Terrine served with poached quince. Main courses feature options from both land and sea including the Lobster Medallion with gingerbread crumble and Milk Fed Holland Veal Cheeks Blanquette.

This season, for the first time, The Continental transforms its terrace into a Winter Garden where guests are invited to immerse in the holiday spirit filled with lights, music and a gastronomic delight. Snuggled up in a blanket against a Christmas backdrop, guests can enjoy tasty morsels in addition to our love of cheese. Look for Fondue comprised of melted Vacherin Fribourgeois and Gruyère, Baked Vacherin Mont d’Or, and warm, melted Raclette. Explore wintery beers, mulled wine, and whiskey cocktails to keep you toasty this season.
The Festive Tasting Menu is priced at HK$788.
