A French Affair

A French Affair: Massive residential complex Taikoo Shing is getting a new restaurant: Eiffle Bistro by French Creations.

Look & Feel: The mid-sized restaurant can seat up to 75 people, and its open-front ground floor location gives it an alfresco vibe.

On the Menu: If the name of the restaurant didn’t give it away, Eiffel Bistro is about recreating the French experience in Hong Kong. Look for dishes like homemade foie gras, beef tartare and sole meuniere. There are also some unorthodox options like burgers and linguine pastas.

Great For: A lunch break, a neighbor gathering.

FYI: French Creations is the group behind restaurants such as Pastis in Central and Comptoir in Kennedy Town.

French Creations

Restaurant group French Creations is noted for its authentically French casual dining venues across Hong Kong Island. Created in November 2009 with the opening of Pastis, the French group, owned by Jérôme Spitzer and Olivier Caisson, never stopped growing since then. French Creations inaugurated Le Boudoir in October 2010, Saint-Germain in June 2011,   French American Bistro (F.A.B.) in March 2012, Metropolitain in March 2013, and launched Alchemy in June 2014 and Comptoir in July 2015.

In 2016, three additions were introduced by the group: French Flair, a wine shop, Flying Pig Bistro in Sai Ying Pun, Eiffel Bistro in Taikoo Shing, Bones & Blades (a butcher & delicatessen), and Quarter Master (a steaks & burger restaurant) next door to Bones & Blades in Sai Ying Pun. The owners, both from the hospitality industry, bring their French know-How to create successful and famous places over Hong Kong.
