The Look Bit Point is a friendly, casual German Bar and restaurant. With warm lighting and comfy, cosy booths you can easily while away a whole afternoon or evening here. Or you can prop up the long bar or the tall tables at the entrance while knocking back a swift Bitburger, the beer the bar is named after, or ordering a round of schnapps.

The Food German chef, Jens Sander, sees to it that the food is not only authentic but also either imported from Germany or made fresh on the premises. Most dishes are Bavarian, in fact there is a whole section of the menu dedicated to sausages which are typically from that part of Germany. Other specialities include pork knuckle with crackling, big platters of German sausage with cheese and pickles, sauerkraut, rosti potatoes cooked with onions and bacon, and of course the desert everyone has been waiting for, apple strudel.

Monday to Friday their set lunches are hearty three coursers. Thereís a home made soup, such as cauliflower or lentil, to start with. Then a choice of three main courses with some combination of meat, fish and veggie options: for example sole, pork (one of Germanyís staple dishes) or lamb, or German pasta with cheese sauce. The lamb stew is rich and unbelievably tender with potatoes to soak up the gravy. Fresh fruit makes a light end to a substantial meal, with tea or coffee, and all this for just HK$87.

What's to drink It's traditional to finish a heavy meal with a wheat schnapps in order to settle the stomach. There is a schnapps menu with about 12 different wheat schnapps and also the sweet schnapps like butterscotch or apple. In case you arenít familiar with the proper way to drink them a diagram spells out the table banging, no hands drinking method. The regulars will look at you funnily if you do it any other way and everyone else will think you are mad doing like this. Take your pick! If scnapps aren't your thing, then venture into the miriad of beers on offer both bottled and on tap.

Food is served until 10.30pm when the snack menu takes over until 2am. By then the crowd is focused on the big glasses of beer interspersed with trays of schnapps and the tunes the juke box is throwing out.
