A fabulous summer lunch

We stayed in the Taipa Island in end August. We were lucky that we found this very nice French restaurant nearby. It was difficult to get a table for lunch on Sunday and we had lunch on Monday instead. Both the degustation menu and set lunch menu were attractive. We tried their five course set... read more

My wife and I ate at The Tasting Room restaurant in Macau last night. What a great meal! We had the 6 course degustation menu with the wine matching. Each dish was really delicious and the wine matches were pretty much spot on. We've eaten at a few of the nice restaurants in Hong Kong (Amber, Caprice, Pierre, etc) and... More

This restaurant enjoys a good reputation but I think it is overrated. When I had lunch there it took 2.5 hrs, it took forever, and we just ordered some a la carte dishes, nothing fancy like a tasting menu or so. The restaurant was empty, I actually think they are never really busy. There were in total 4 tables, enough... More

Very nice environment and great services. Tried the five courses lunch tasting menu, fresh salmon appetizer was so tender. Melon gazpacho was very juice like and a very new tasting experience. Quail with liver and cognac was also unique in Asia. Cheeses were great!

As I am about to leave Macau after many years living here, last week´s lunch at The Tasting Room was certainly an amazing experience I will take with me and a great way to say goodbye to the city. Exactly a week ago, I met with a good friend for lunch at The Tasting Room, we had a reservation and... More

I haven't been back for a while, but have been visiting the restaurant since chef Galliot was behind the stoves when it was still Horizons and how dishes have evolved - but kept the excellent consistency - only that it gets better each time! We left it up to the chef and had a five course menu at lunch. We... More
