Could have been perfect

Our group of 8 people had lunch at The Eight on Jan. 20. Prior to that, 8 required us to email a credit card guarantee because we were booking a big table (they only have few big tables in the restaurant). This was not standard practice at other fine dining restaurants in Macau but we complied... read more

Superb food although decor a little depressing. Enormous menu. Consistently high quality. Too many favourite dishes to name.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our Hong Kong guide. First of all, we loved the atmosphere, the quiet and the decor. The food was very good. They gave us an abalone appetizer we hadn't ordered, which was excellent. Then we had deep fried fish, shrimp and morel dumplings, fried shrimp, and a steamed dumpling with mushrooms.... More

The dim sum here is not just pretty and exquisite but tasty as well. From the handbag shaped and other well presented fried pastries, steamed delights to the mango and coconut pudding in goldfish shape, almond cream in birds nest and other complimentary starters and milk tea etc. Well worth the trip although they are a bit stickly on dress...

The Eight is a Michelin 2 Star restaurant located on the second floor of the Grand Lisboa hotel. It's decor is extremely oriental with lucky 8 symbols, golden koi carp fishes on the wall and a huge dazzling sphere made with crystals just above the water in the middle of the restaurant. I liked the cute baby chick pastry which... More

A friend invited me to lunch here and it was indeed an amazing place. The food was tasty and well presented such that each dish was worthy of a photo as a reminder. I'm sure it was expensive but my friend paid so I can't comment much. As with a lot of fine dining places you eat for the experience... More

They get the service, ambience and deco 100% right and you will struggle to find a Chinese restaurant that comes close to matching those three things in Macau. I am maybe being a little bit harsh with the 4* but I felt that their Michelin star now means that they have to achieve everything 100% to justify that rating and... More

With a few restaurants in Macau steadily declining, it's nice to have a staple I can go back to with consistent quality and service- unlike Robuchon in the same building.

Having never dined in a Michelin starred restaurant before, I have no comparison to make. Our lunch today was stunning. From the sliding door entrance, the water feature opening into a very classy, refined room everything was beautiful. Gorgeous table setting (use the black chopsticks to take from the main dishes & use the white ones to eat with), excellent... More
