A cre­ative fo­cus on the sea and the sea­sons puts Repulse Bay new­comer The Ocean on the city’s culi­nary map

the view from The Ocean is spec­tac­u­lar: an ex­panse of sea un­ob­structed by sky­scrapers, white yachts bob­bing in the bay, and the loop­ing roller coast­ers of Ocean Park perched on the nearby head­land. The trop­i­cal fish in the tanks that adorn the new, 8,000-square-foot res­tau­rant are still shy. They hide be­hind coral and bur­row into the sand. In the pri­vate din­ing room at the far end of the space, jel­ly­fish float hyp­not­i­cally in a large aquar­ium. The Ocean is Le Comp­toir’s fourth of­fer­ing, af­ter Bibo, Hot­shot and, most re­cently, TRI. Bibo is in She­ung Wan, but the oth­ers are all housed at The Pulse, a stylish lifestyle cen­tre by the beach at Repulse Bay.
