A Meal with a View
An elegant restaurant on the seventh floor of the Lujiang Harborview Hotel (鹭江宾馆), Harborview Restaurant 's (观海餐厅) view of Gulangyu Island from the outdoor balcony is one of the best in Xiamen. The restaurant specializes in Guangdong-style dim sum and Fujian-style cuisine, emphasizing fresh, succulent flavors without lots of external seasonings or spices. Head to the dim sum station to see your food being made before you order it. This being Xiamen, seafood of course is also featured prominently on the menu. The sweet and sour shrimp or pork are sure to please visitors weaned on Chinese American food, and the macadamia nut-encrusted fish is a tropical island-inspired treat. The wait for the balcony can be long, but the chandelier-filled indoor dining room is larger, and air-conditioned. Open 8:00-14:00, 17:00-23:00. 54 Lujiang Road 鹭江道54号
