Opened just last month, The Conservatory is a breath of fresh air for Sai Kung. Run by Clearwater Bay-based husband and wife duo, Robert and Kim Cooper, the Enoteca Group have taken the success of their SoHo restaurants to the Kung. Serving Mediterranean-style cuisine, dishes are delicately plated up. Dishes are made to share, with the menu having a heavy focus on Mediterranean-style small plates and homemade thin crust pizzas (starts from $118). If you want to sample a few dishes, order the white wine platter or the red wine platter (both $248) which includes a selection of their signature starters like goats cheese stuffed piquillo peppers, parma ham and toasted foccacia. The breakfast menu is filled with classic items as well as healthy fruit and granola bowls. Kids don’t miss out either, options include free-range egg and soldiers, bacon toastie, baby bruschetta and whole wheat banana and chocolate pancakes.
Best for special occasions
The restaurant decor is dainty and refined; white walls are furnished with banana leaf patterned panels and wooden ceiling fans giving the space an elegant colonial ambience. Thanks to the open window front, it allows natural sunlight to fill the restaurant.
Like most other restaurants in the square, The Conservatory also has outdoor tables but the team is working on providing seating on its second floor which will overlook the square – perfect for a candle-lit date night!
