Hong Kong: Only Buonasera

We went to Only Buonasera because the Groupon made it seem like a great deal and the OpenRice reviews were quite good (I should know better though as OpenRice really can't be relied on for reviews). Anyhow, the Groupon had was pitching the "8 course" meal as a HKD $1500 value.

Food was really uneven, while the main courses were ok, the appetizers were barely edible. May actually spat out an oyster that she just couldn't eat. Also, calling this an 8 course meal was borderline dishonest as they counted each of the appetizers as a course. Whatever it was, this was not a $1500 value in terms of quality.

Not horrible mind you (except for appetizers) but not worth a second visit.

Fish carpaccio and disgusting oysters

3 courses!

Seafood risotto. Rice was actually quite nice;y done and seafood was ok.

Grilled seafood platter. Just a bit overdone. Swordfish was a bit dry.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Tiramisu; fluffy, nice texture on the fork. Unfortunately, the coffee mixture they used was too watery, which made the taste a little bit off and spoiled the final product. Sad because they were close.
