With a stunning dining room as its backdrop, Culinary Director Richard Ekkebus’ contemporary interpretation of French cuisine has earned numerous awards, including two Michelin stars, and No. 24 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List 2017. Using only the finest ingredients, Chef Ekkebus uses his classical training and creativity to invent dishes to excite and enthuse even the most jaded palate.

Blending cutting-edge style with inventive lighting, the restaurant’s dramatic design provides the perfect setting for Amber’s award-winning cuisine. With a breathtaking bronze chandelier as its centerpiece, the décor uses warm natural hues to create an elegant ambience that allows the masterful menu to be the focus of what is an incredible dining experience.

Private Dining

Surrounded on all sides by the restaurant’s glass-clad wine cellar, our Private Wine Room seats up to 12 guests in luxurious privacy and can be adapted into two even more intimate settings.

Enjoying a stunning design, this sumptuous retreat is decorated with rich golden organza curtains, a plush geometric carpet and chocolate brown curvilinear chairs which invite guests to linger comfortably over Amber’s award-winning dishes.

To complete the scene, a discreet chandelier casts light upon a table covered with Frette linen and set with Amber’s bespoke Bernardaud china and Christofle stemware.

Executive Chef

Richard Ekkebus

Born in Holland, Culinary Director Richard Ekkebus fell in love with food as a child. Following in the footsteps of his restaurant-owning grandparents who taught him the importance of using only the freshest produce, he is now regarded as one of the best chefs in Hong Kong.

Having trained under Michelin-starred Dutch chefs Hans Snijders and Robert Kranenborg, Ekkebus refined his techniques working with French masters such as Alain Passard, Guy Savoy and Pierre Gagnaire. From there he spent time honing his skills in Mauritius and Barbados before bringing his commitment and skill to Amber in 2005.

His 52-strong team of talented chefs share his committed work ethic and under his leadership have won two Michelin stars for nine years running.
