Gaddi's is a French haute cuisine restaurant situated in The Peninsula Hong Kong hotel. It was opened in 1953 and named after a former general manager of The Peninsula, Leo Gaddi. The current executive chef is Rémi Van Peteghem. The former executive chef was Philip Sedgwick, the first British head chef of Gaddi's.


The decor is meant to evoke old Hong Kong and the hotel's original 1928 neoclassical architecture. It has a European dining room, with two six-foot crystal-and-silver chandeliers from Paris, Tai Ping carpets, and a Chinese coromandel screen dating from 1670.[1]

It also created the first chef's table[citation needed] in Hong Kong where the Chef Table diners sit at a special table beside the Gaddi's kitchen viewing the dishes being prepared.


The food is classically French but with inventive European influences.Online Frommer's review

Examples of past dishes include:

There is a ten course tasting menu which lets the diners taste a sample of many of Gaddi's famous dishes.

The wine cellar is among the best and largest in Hong Kong[citation needed], with a collection of rare vintages.

In a 2006 Independent feature on romantic dining, author Alexandra Antonioni wrote:

"They don't make restaurants like this any more and everyone should dine at Gaddi's at least once in their lifetime. Nothing can touch it for glamour and sheer indulgence."[2]


In 2010, the restaurant was listed as the 'Best gourmet restaurant' on the Hong Kong Best Eats 2010 list compiled by CNN Travel.[3]
