Richly marbled and perfectly cooked steak is one of life’s greatest pleasures – and, lucky for us, Hong Kong is undeniably a carnivore’s paradise. From the affordably priced to the ridiculously luxurious, we’ve tried and tested every restaurant on this list to make sure that you’ll never have to sit through a sub-standard chop again. So prepare yourself for a fit of the meat sweats as we dive into the very best steak in Hong Kong in this Hive Life guide.
Not for the faint-hearted, this famed American steakhouse prides itself on its fantastically gigantic portions, next-level service and spectacular harbour views. Start your night off with a well-made classic cocktail at their adjoining restaurant bar, then get a taste of the sea with one of their prime ocean platters, featuring Alaskan king crab leg, jumbo shrimp cocktail and Maine lobster. Next, gorge yourself on either the centre-cut prime filet mignon or their Chicago-style prime bone-in rib-eye. But don’t forget to save room for dessert – we recommend Morton’s legendary hot chocolate cake!
Insider’s Tip: With perhaps the best service in Hong Kong, Morton’s is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday with a personal touch. Oh, and if you go on a Friday or Saturday, you’ll have the option of pre-ordering Hong Kong’s absolute best prime rib. Trust us, it’s unrivalled.

Inspired by the spirit of old Parisian brasseries, La Vache serves up only one menu – a salad of lettuce with walnuts, followed by an entrecôte steak and frites. You won’t be disappointed by the lack of choice as each individual component is perfectly seasoned from the uber-tangy salad to the endless supply of crispy, golden all-you-can-eat fries. Whilst the steak itself certainly doesn’t come top of this list, you really can’t beat the price of HKD 258 per person – a bargain in a city where steaks often set you back HKD 1000 before sides. But, make sure you arrive early to secure your spot as this Black Sheep favourite gets full fast.
Insider’s Tip: Make sure you save room for dessert as their roving trolley of desserts will surely impress. Our favourites? The Lemon Meringue Pie and the Mille-Feuille.

The newest kid on the block is making a bid to dethrone Bistecca as the city’s go-to steakhouse for a taste of Florence – and given its Black Sheep lineage (not to mention its ever so slightly lower prices), it might just have a shot. As with any Tuscan trattoria, the clear star on the menu is the Bistecca alla Fiorentina cut, sourced straight from an Idaho farm, although you’d be remiss to skip out on some of the other fantastic menu items. Our top picks include the Pollo al Burro Omaggio a Sostanza (chicken breast in a brown butter sauce), the tagliatelle with butter and white alba truffle and the I Tagli Del Macelliao (butcher’s cut).
Insider’s Tip: If you like your steak cooked medium or well-done, you’ll be out of luck at Associazione Chianti as all their best steaks are chargrilled to a medium-rare.

This authentic New York Steakhouse serves up Peter Luger-style steaks right in the heart of Hong Kong – and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Start your meal off with their impressive seafood tower, Beverly Hills chopped salad and sizzling extra-thick Canadian bacon. Their 28-day dry-aged USDA Black Angus beef is as good as any in Manhattan and their world-famous porterhouse will have you salivating. Cooked to order at a high temperature in a grill broiler, their steaks are perfectly charred and crunchy on the outside, and incredibly juicy and flavourful on the inside. The portion sizes here are large and best for sharing, the ambience laidback and noisy, making it better for groups than intimate dates.
