The 3-Michelin-star Chinese-style restaurant “The Eight” is one of the top-class in Macau. Yet, its quality outputs are quite price-reasonable as different from many at that level. The dishes are well-served by highly-selected young waitresses dressed in cheongsam. One can really get immersed at foods and at their appearances simultaneously. The restaurant’s location on the Macau Island is easily accessible... More

The Eight is a unique Macau casino restaurant with lots of space between the tables, self-opening doors, a really impressive entrance, creative and fun-loving chefs, and cheongsam-clad waitresses with limited English who try very hard to please the small proportion of their customers who can’t speak Cantonese or Mandarin . We don’t feel that the restaurant should be judged by... More

We had the chefs menu on the advise of the staff as there was only 2 of us. We had desired suckling pig but it would have been way too much for us. The food was delicious particularly the crab claw , beef and the sesame dessert was to die for. Some of the textures and tastes were challenging to... More

This is the best Chinese restuarant in Macau in terms of the food they offered. However, the service is slow and the girls are forgetful. Not saying that they are not nice or impolite but they just keep forgetting things, forget to place order, forget to give you water, leave your dish at somewhere without serving it to you until...

Don't get frightened from prices of the top dishes. There are lots of dishes with reasonable prices and they are amazing!

we went at lunch time. early start 11:30am and promised to return the table by 1pm which is fine with us. the place was decorated to be like a Chinese palace. The waitress wore beautiful cheungsam. All appeared to be very neat and luxurious. Their dim sum are most in the shape of gold fish or porcupine. Some are really... More

A group of friends and I came here as part of a weekend trip to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of two amongst our group. We were drawn to try this because of its 3 Michelin stars. Sadly, we came away convinced that it is not deserving of the 3 stars. 2 maybe, but not 3. The food was good and... More

The entrance gives you a feeling of entering into water, and the design of dining is nice. Excellent service and food. You must try the dim sum recommended. Goldfish-shaped shrimp dumpling, pig-shaped roast pork bun, 紅棗馬拉糕,炒米粉,really excellent.

This place is a Michelin Starred restaurant so the expectation was higher than normal. Overall, it was a good experience, excellent food and attentive service, but there are some hits and misses. The hits were the food. I like the roasted suckling pig stuffed with rice. The pig skin was super crispy and the meat was relatively lean. The xiao... More

Macau honestly is a smokey dirty city with few attractions aside from gambling. Even the PRC limits the visas to 6 per year or the city will be flooded with gambling smoking Chinese. The Eight was a real surprise. It is in the Grande Lisboa Hotel and simply put is the best Cantomese food I have ever eaten. We started... More
