This restaurant is on Lamma Island a boat ride from Hong Kong( make sure you check the timings). Their are two restaurants and both have won too many awards to list. It is excellent fresh seafood at prices that make it exceptional value for money. We had the set menu but ordered extra fried squid as it was just so... More

The ferry ride to the island from the Kowloon ferry terminal is complimentary when you book a table. The food was tasty and a fun experience getting there. The variety of flavors is a bit limited but the scenery and experience makes up for it.

We asked for prawns but they brought us two very small lobster instead (smaller than a king prawn), unfortuntelly we tried them first, therefore... More

We went to the Rainbow Seafood Restaurant after a rainy day, the ferry to Lama island was a nice adventure but remarkable because I prefer cloudy weather for a dramatic view. After arriving at Lama we were guided to the Rainbow Restaurant and our host picked up the dishes from the menu. All the fishes, crabs and squids are well... More

We spent over $50 USD for bland calamari and the tiniest crab with almost no meat. Very disappointing. Don't waste your money.

From what I've read before, the Rainbow seafood restaurant is supposed to be an institution here in Hong Kong. It is a local favorite, with fresh seafood dishes. I had to try it out ! We were there with a couple of friends before a Hike around Lamma Island. We ordered Fried Calamari Plates. They came with a tea Pot... More

We did one of our favourite things when in HK and took a trip to Lamma ... taking friends with us .... lunch should have been terrific .... But we had dreadful service so much so that some of our meal didn't arrive in an hour. When asked to see what was happening with it our waiter just laughed ...... More

We always visit Rainbow on Lamma when we are in Hong Kong for excellent seafood,well prepared and well priced which was actually a problem this time as we did not spend enough to be allowed to use our Amex card which was the only credit card I had taken.So be warned unless you spend a minimum HK 1000 you cannot...

Great service and high quality seafood of all types. The lobster and abalone were our favorites but many other varieties. We took the 1815 boat from Central in HK and it was a nice 45 min ride through the harbor at sunset. We stayed at the restaurant until 2045 when we caught the boat back and arrived at 2130. Highly...

Great place to eat, seafood are so fresh here and tastes great. Located at Lamma Island this restaurant is very popular with the tourists. The meal is expensive but they do give you tickets for a free boat ride to Hong Kong Island harbour opposite Tsim Sha Shui. The boat itself is very well maintained and very nice so worth... More
