Excellent and well-priced way to enjoy a variety of Macanese/Portuguese dishes

We stayed at the adjacent hotel and went for their buffet dinner on Friday night. The restaurant is very pleasant and quiet, and there was also a band playing the same night, providing a nice ambience...and also inspiring some of the kids to dance!

Last week during the 2 days of training at Pousada de Mong-Há, I lunch twice in this restaurant. The set-lunch prepared for us was very well balance, with a very good presentation and really tasty. Service was friendly and effective. My only comment goes to the Dessert Buffet on the second day because they present 2 of the desserts with... More

Enjoying a meal at this restaurant is a must when in Macau! The service is first-class and the food is amazing. I enjoyed several meals while staying at Pousada de Mong-Ha and each was unique and delicious. The menu has a wide variety of choices, including unique local cuisine. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We had the buffet dinner on Friday evening. The food was delicious and what a choice. My wife who is incredibly health conscious even tried all the puddings. The service was good too. Friendly students doing their utmost to impress under the guidance of excellent staff. We loved the band. They were such fun and added to the atmosphere! We... More

This is actually the restaurant of the Macao hotel school. Service is by the students and super attentive. I suggest you take the tasting menu along with a Portuguese red wine from the extensive wine list. Scallops were particularly good. I also liked the Bacalhau fish cakes and a traditional local dish called 'Minchi' (minced beef and pork). Very good... More

Superb food, superb wines and superb service. Go for the tasting menu and pair with a bottle of Portuguese wine. I'll go for the cabernet sauvignon.

IFT educational restaurant was recently included as a Bib Gourmand pick in the 2015 Michelin guide. Because of all the great TA reviews, my friend and I wanted to give it a try and I'm happy to report all the glowing reviews are true.

The restaurant serves as a training place for the Macau's Institute for Tourism Studies. Don't be fooled by this as you would be served as if you're in a high end restaurant. We had dinner there. The place is warm and friendly. We had scallop and black pork pie as appetizer. They are very good and a must try. As... More
