Perfect dining experience from beginning to end at The Eight. Once you step inside the entrance of the restaurant, you are transported into a calm oasis. I was originally drawn to the Eight because of their intricate Dim Sum presentation, but ended up going for dinner instead. I made reservations in person several days prior as their phone reservation lines... More

The restaurant has an impressive 3 Michelin stars, and is one of the only 2 Chinese restaurants to achieve this in Asia. You enter the Eight through a secret dark passage where the walls are made of cascading water and clever lighting creates an illusion of walking through water with swimming fish.The dining area is spectacular with marble floors, tables...

Reasonable price for a Michelin 3 star restaurant, that's why you must leave within 90min. If you have more than six persons, you must book a private room which had minimun charge MOP $4000. Anyway it worth to try.

Undoubtedly the best Cantonese restaurant in Macau...hands down. It absolutely deserves the Michelin rating and clearly the team is prepared to maintain the rating. The service is impeccable. ..at least two servers for each table in addition to a team leader over several tables. The ambiance is peaceful, elegant and luxurious. The decor is vivid, yet relaxed. I have saved... More

Remember to make online reservation well in advance, it is available to book on its website. We went there for lunch and it has a very creative dim-sum menu. Even I do not eat meat (fish seafood okay), I can pick plentiful of interesting dishes to try like blue Shrimp Dumpling in Goldfish shape, dumpling w/whole abalone, Alaska crabmeat rice... More

Meal: Dim sum lunch Suitable for: a lazy weekend brunch with friends/ family. Pros: food that combines the best of innovative ideas (e.g. abalone amuse bouche, goldfish shaped prawn dumplings, porcupine shaped pork buns) and traditional skills); very attentive and polite service, value for money. Cons: slightly over-the-top decor, food portions can be larger.

Impressive dim sum presentation & great ambiance. The highlight is the goldfish projection in hallway. Unfortunately, the food quality could not persuade me to return.

The dim sum were delicious, and the chef took pains to present them in an interesting manner. We were surprised by the designs and had great fun taking photos for my niece and nephew. We enjoyed the meal very, but would enjoy more if the wait staff were more attentive and warm. Overall, will still come back here just for... More

During our Macau trip in March 2014, we went to Grand Lisboa’s Michelin three-star Chinese restaurant The Eight for lunch. The two of us ordered a total of nine dishes, each comprising two to four pieces of tiny little dumplings, tarts, or various kinds of meatballs. Most of these dim sum dishes were new creations by the chefs rather than... More
