Family lunch in celebration of my son's birthday. Amazing wine list - as complete and well stocked as I've seen anywhere. But since we just got off the ferry we only went for a half bottle of Gazin (red) and 2 glasses of Larrivet Haut Brion blanc. Both served in v good condition. The pasta were... read more

Had lunch in Don Alfonso for couple of times and it never disappointed me. The food was great and the service was fabulous. Better reserve a table before you get there.

Dining at Don Alfonso 1890 would be an unforgettable experience for Italian fine dining. Located in the glitzy setting of Hotel Grand Lisbao, Macau, you are surrounded by huge crystal chandeliers and other sparkling dazzlers. The traditional homemade fusilli with Mediterranean calms and zucchini was memorable because the fusilli is different from the usual screw shaped ones, they took the... More

Was looking for a place which is less crowded during the lunch hour for a wine gathering. Chose Don Alfonso in Grand Lisboa which offers a good spot, less crowded and more relaxed ambience. This was my 6th visit to Don Alfonso. As usual, restaurant manager Salvatore and Jimmy took great care of us. All the waitresses were very attentive... More

The old school way of service isn't a bad thing, it's welcome from time to time but with it seems to come a hefty price tag. In this instance the food was well worth it and we had a very warm welcome. Pasta was superb and the wine list - extensive does not do it justice - massive - quite... More

Services and presentation are very impressive. Lunch was not over powered with matching prices. Will definitely go back to try out the dinner menu. And hopefully one day will visit their legendary origin in S'Agata, not far from Sorrento and Positano.

Stunning restaurant, beautifully appointed, classical style. Even the bar lobby is gorgeous. Wins huge points for style, albeit a tiny OTT. Their lunch menu is reasonably priced. Bread is fab!!! One with the little cherry tomato blew me away as the flavor exploded in your mouth!!! Amuse bouche is slices of smoked King Fish with dry zucchini. Very nice.....

I went for a business lunch. The 4-course lunch was very good. Two appetizers -- grilled scallops and green pea soup, a lamb chop for entree, and a sorbet for desert... all were very good. The price wasn't very high either relative to the ingredients and quality. I heard from my business partner (not from the restaurant) that they fly... More

We were fortunate to discover this hidden gem on Level 3 of the (new) Grand Lisboa Hotel in Macau during a recent visit. We were so pleased with the excellent lunch and overall experience we had, that we told ourselves we must return from Hong Kong specifically for dinner here, soon. Let me share with you what we had, with... More
