Father’s Day is upon us (18 June) and if you haven’t made plans yet, we’ve got you covered! Our list below includes a whole host of Father’s Day dining options; there’s everything from tasty steaks for dads, to classy meals with a harbour view. And we also have some great Father’s Day gift ideas for making the day extra special.
# Father’s Day Gift Ideas!
This Father’s Day, Altfield Gallery is featuring a range of one-of-a-kind hand-blown glass for gentlemen from the Georgian period in England, dating from 1750 to the early 1800s. This is considered the highpoint of the glassmaker’s craft. The rare glassware remains in perfect condition to use and enjoy for the man in your life. As we know, wine tastes better when decanted and allowed to air a little, especially when it comes from a beautiful piece of glassware! There are also some other specially crafted pieces made specifically for whisky, gin, brandy and other spirits. And, for long-term storage, they can sit perfectly on a drinks tray.

When you ask ‘What do you want for Father’s Day?’ and the answer is ‘Nothing’, a good go-to gift for any dad is a bottle of his favourite alcoholic drink. Offering a range of everything from premium wines to gold-medal-winning whiskies, along with beers, sake and more is LIQUIDZ. If you’re looking for Father’s Day gift ideas that are a little more sentimental, the company also offers a cool bottle-engraving service. The team can engrave personalised text, images or any other custom design onto your chosen bottle within seven days, turning it into a perfect memento. And, if your dad is very particular about his drink of choice, the team at LIQUIDZ also provides advice on selections.
Offering cool, practical and thoughtful gifts, TREE’s selection of homeware is perfect for every dad. Every item is beautifully crafted, from the marble serve ware to the solid teak wine racks. We particularly like the Belgian designed PI bookends (from $1,450). These would look great on a study shelf or to keep your dad’s books upright by his bedside. Each piece is handcrafted from solid mahogany into a sculptural silhouette and finished by hand to preserve the wood’s natural character.

Locations across Hong Kong
Does your dad or the father of your kids love Japanese food? Then take him out for contemporary restaurant Zoku’s Japanese brunch for some Father’s Day dining. The Friends & Family All Day Brunch menu features traditional favourites to start – from sashimi and sushi to tempura and grilled bites. For mains, try the lobster soba with Okinawan squid soba in spicy lobster soup or grilled A5 Miyazaki wagyu. For dessert, there’s a house-made mochi cake. Throughout the brunch, you also get free-flow soft drinks and selected beers. To take your Father’s Day celebration to the next level Japanese style, add on paired sake selected by the sommelier. Located in The Hari, Zoku’s brunch menu is $688 (per person) or $1288 (per person) with two hours of free-flow champagne.
With front-row seats to Hong Kong’s iconic harbourfront, head to Ink for a Father’s Day alfresco breakfast. From 9am to 12pm, the menu ($380 each and $190 for kids) includes a Bloody Mary cocktail, plenty of pastries and a spread of cured meats to share. For mains, choose between the Australian wagyu hanger steak and eggs on sourdough, baked eggs with chorizo and beans or smoked ocean trout benedict with Bearnaise sauce. For a special treat, finish your Father’s Day celebration sharing hot jam doughnuts and peanut butter pecan pies.
Looking for Father’s Day dining with a view? Modern Australian restaurant Hue is offering a three-course lunch ($880) and four-course dinner ($950) with the iconic backdrop of Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. Start with the pulled beef short rib pastie, spicy bluefin tuna or roasted gnocchi. And make sure to leave room for the main course, because the wagyu brisket ‘Pastrami’ with bordelaise sauce and black cod with caviar sound delicious. Plus, for dessert they have warm pineapple pudding or whipped Valrhona chocolate with berries and coconut. If you purchase four courses, there’s also a selection of delicious canapes. Also keep an eye out for the special deal for wine lovers. Add on a wine pairing for $450 each and dad can take home a L’Atelier du Vin Wine Decanter with a retail value of $1,300 (T&Cs apply).
Regent Hotel Harbourside Buffet
If the way to your dad’s heart is through his stomach, have a feast on Father’s Day at Harbourside. This Father’s Day idea involves a lavish dinner buffet filled with flavours from around the world. There’s a whole range of seafood from salmon roe to akagi sashimi and a charcuterie selection too. For mains, dishes range from steamed abalone and crab meat stir fries to duck leg confit and made-to-order laksa. There’s also a Japanese tempura station with prawns and soft shell crab at lunchtime, and, in the evening, freshly made lobster dishes and poached foie gras. We also love the sound of the carving station with roasted US tomahawk and tandoori lamb racks for meat lovers. Oh, and there’s a full dessert counter, which includes whiskey chocolate ganache cake and chocolate fondant for after dinner!
With chef Alvin Leung from two-Michelin-starred Bo Innovation behind this restaurant, you’re sure to treat your dad to a unique and delicious Father’s Day dining experience at Cafe Bau. The farm-to-table concept is centred around reducing carbon footprints and sourcing local produce. Speaking of local, the name Cafe Bau is inspired by the Bauhinia flower, Hong Kong’s iconic floral emblem. The menu is also an ode to local Hong Kong flavours. For Father’s Day, choose between the three-course dinner tasting menu at $650 per person and the eight-course dinner tasting menu at $998.
Meat-loving dads will feel right at home with a four-course tomahawk steak dinner at the JW Marriott’s Flint. Start your steak night with a hearty soup before moving on to a massive Australian Stockyard Black Angus Beef Tomahawk ($1,900 for two). The premium cut is grilled perfectly so it’s irresistibly tender, juicy and full of flavour. Plus, the meal is ideal for sharing and coming with fried chips, English asparagus, wild mushrooms, truffle jus and sweet dessert offerings to finish. A set dinner with other main courses is also available, spotlighting USDA Nebraska ribeye, roasted lamb rack with ratatouille roll, and roasted Iberico pork with pumpkin gnocchi.
