Mr. Wolf’s bistro-style Christmas is sure to delight this year – with inventive menus across both lunch and dinner. While their festive lunch menu features less traditional dishes, such as a paneer butter masala curry, the three-course evening menu features all the traditional mainstays: roast chestnut and sherry soup, roast turkey breast served with duck fat roast potatoes, and – of course – a Christmas pudding to finish. Wash it all down with your drink of choice – there are two free-flow packages available.
Price: HK$528 food only; HK$648 with house free-flow; HK$806 with the festive drinks package.

Indulge in an elevated Christmas dinner this year at The Continental . With both traditional and more contemporary options to choose from at this al fresco favourite, there’s something to suit every taste. Opt for the pressed terrine of ham hock, gravadlax of organic salmon or fresh burrata to begin before moving on to mains, such as fillet of Australian beef, roast loin of Kinboshi pork or the organic Taiwanese pumpkin. Make sure you leave room for dessert: the pecan pie crème caramel is a fan favourite – although you can’t go wrong with their homemade Christmas pudding.

For a truly extravagant Christmas dinner, head to Kilo Steakhouse , located in K11 Musea with breathtaking views of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline. The food created here by Chef Nathan Green and his team is nothing short of spectacular. Choose from a variety of starters, such as a smoky bluefin tuna tartare, a classic steak tartare, or burrata with fire-roasted tomatoes, before moving on to one of four mains (we highly recommend the Kuro M7+ grain-fed American Wagyu tenderloin), all of which come served with seasonal sides, such as potato purée and chargrilled corn. Finish with something sweet: crêpes suzette with vanilla ice cream.
