Quarry Bay is becoming more and more crowded with bars and eateries, but this ever more bustling area has one spot that for beer lovers and Europhiles will take a lot to knock it off its perch. Found on the first floor of Oxford House on Taikoo Place, FRITES is one of a family of Belgian restaurants around Hong Kong now famous for its buzzing vibe, friendly service, mind-boggling beer menu and superb food. With almost a hundred beers to choose from, this is a place where beer matching to meal courses is as serious a deal as wine is for French degustation dinners. The food on offer is diverse, from small plates ideal for bar snacks and sharing to hefty pork knuckles and a half-metre-long Belgian sausage. FRITES is never quiet so it’s always good to book ahead – especially for their great express business lunch during the week or their generous five-hour ‘happy hour’ – but you’ll always be glad you did.
Excellent services, very good food and many choice of lovely beer. Love to go there again and again. Reasonable price and nice environment. Really enjoy their Belgium beers, can't get the same else where.
Clean restaurant. good choice of beverages. nice to see explanations of the differences between each type of Belgium beer. Good menu ( with a readable font) with variety,.....but food appetizers and mains was a bit pricey...even the daily special.....Could not eat here weekly. Portions were extremely large. I enjoyed both the peach beer and the apple beers. I had the onion soup which was excellent portion wise and taste wise. I then had the pork schnitzel which was tasty but far too large. Even for me, and I can eat a lot, it was far too large a piece of pork for anyone to finish. My colleague who is also a male and a big eater, remarked that the schnitzel was far too large also. Frites were excellent and good portion. Good prompt service that was attentive as well.
Promotion on selected drinks for the celebration of 10th anniversary! Fresh and yummy mussels is a must, the large portion of the main courses is good for gathering! Shortage of manpower to serve.
