Great food and even better service!

The food at Vida Rica was sublime. Both Eastern and Western tastes are catered for, we selected options from the Western menu but have no doubt that the food from the other section would have been just as good. The staff were fantastic, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive without being... read more

I have been to several dinners/parties/events at Vida Rica over my years of living in Macau. It is always a pleasure - fast, efficient and excellent service. The food and drinks were exceptional (as always) - we will definitely be returning again! Thank you for making our impromptu cocktail party easy and no stress.

I actually live in Macau and have had the pleasure of attending and hosting events at the Vida Rica cocktail bar. The staff are always on top of it and attentive (which is some of the highest praise you can give to an establishment in Macau!) and the food and drinks are always of an exceptional calibre. The preparation for... More

Delicious dinner and delectable wine :) The setting is very romantic and relaxing. Angelo and Mario made sure our meal was perfect. Angelo treated us like VIPS and Mario took the time to teach us about Portugese Wine which we love! We had our dessert at the bar next door with more wine and enjoyed the view of the tower.... More

we had such a special experience here. from the moment we arrived until departure we were really well looked after. The food was exceptional and a beautiful setting. Wine is expensive but that was not surprising. For a special event this could not be bettered.

We chose the Vida Rica for dinner with my parents in law because it was rated no.1 by Tripadvisor - and fortunately Tripadvisor was as reliable as ever. The food was very good and the service outstanding. Mario, our lovely waiter, was very warm and professional and provided extra touches that made the evening really special.

Was pleasantly surprised to see Trip Advisor's #1 rated Macau restaurant was right around the corner. so we stopped in for lunch. Ordered the executive flight. I choose poorly with the liver appetizer, my fault, not Vida Rica's. Things picked up considerably with the fish dish. The fruit plate was extra fresh. The maitre'd was gracious and made us very...

The service was excellent, I would say Flawless. The food, the staffs, the view everything was extremely good. Plus our glasses were never empty, very attentive team with good attention to details. I guess MO has one of the best training programes in the industry.
