Reminiscent of a fine old bleached wood boathouse, Driftwood is open to the ocean, capturing the gentle breeze and adding it to a menu of fresh, succulent seafood and superb meats, all meticulously prepared and served.
Dine indoors or outside under an umbrella and take in unrivalled views of Yalong Bay through doors framed by wooden slats and shutters as you enjoy specialties such as sashimi, Hainan baby lobster, Pacific oysters, king crab, and sea bass with abalone cocktail sauce and mango chutney. Meat-based entrees include tender Angus beef rib-eye or tenderloin as well as tomahawk rib steak, all cooked to specification and served with delectable side dishes. Lighter offerings include salmon spring rolls with mango and avocado and prawn-watermelon skewers. Driftfood also offers a delectable salmon burger on a focaccia bun. And for dessert, guests may enjoy such temptations as fresh Hainan fruit sorbet, a coffee chocolate mud pie, or a luscious forest berry cheesecake.
Fine wines and exceptional service, with attention to each detail, add immeasurably to the Driftwood experience.

Authentic Cantonese and Sichuan cooking and personalized service are the focus at Ming Xuan, a splendid restaurant devoted to exceptional moments. As the light and mood of the Yacht Club and Marina shift outside the windows, the interior of the restaurant changes, too. The unique design embraces the idea of traditional pillars and round tables, with individual, oversized square “lanterns” above each table, but the feel is contemporary, sleek and spacious, with cherry wood accents and warm golden hues and a polished marble floor. In addition to a main dining room, guests may also dine in three private rooms, each seating ten people.
Signature dishes include chilled foie gras with Hainan chilli jelly; poached Wen Chang chicken; Australian, local, and baby lobster or roe crab in a variety of preparations, including steamed with garlic and vermicelli or baked with consommé and Parmesan cheese.
Your sommelier will advise on a selection of fine wines or teas to accompany each dish.
