In short, this restaurant offers you 3 things - quality, value, and (here's the special one) a feel-good factor. Quality decor.

Tried the executive lunch and dinner buffet for few times. The atmosphere is nice and the chef is good. You can go if you would like to try Portuguese food. Make sure you do the reservation before going. It is always full.

It's a rare surprise in Macao. This Restaurant can compete with haute cuisine but at affordable Prices. The Trainees are permanently managed by professionals.Our best Food in Macao. And the wine list is HUGE, a paradise for wine drinkers. Do order famous French Crepe Suzette, they really do a great Job!

Instituto de Formacao Turistica's (Institute for tourism studies) Educational restaurant offers nice restaurant experience for very reasonable price. The restaurant is located by the school and is a bit labor some to find. On the tourist map it seems that it is located in a park or garden (Colina de Mong Ha - Mong Ha park) area but at least...

We enjoyed an absolutely exceptional dinner at IFT! We had read all the good reviews and were deciding whether or not to make a reservation, given that it was a bit far from our hotel. But we were SO GLAD that we did! We started with the mushroom risotto and fish cake salad, both of which were delicious and generously... More

If you would like to enjoy a high quality Portugal food, you won’t disappoint there. When you check your bill, you would be surprised by the price – an ordinary restaurant’s price. We had tried different types of Portugal food here. I liked the Seafood rice very much. You could find there was a large variety of fresh seafood and... More

It is educational restaurant with students serving under supervision. As for me this is touching when sometimes the girls are not very confident and looking for help of teachers. For some people, it can be annoying, however. I find it amazing and worth because you not pay tax there (as it is governmental educational institution) and tipping is not allowed;... More

We went there for lunch and tried the a la carte menu and a bottle of wine. Price is reasonable, food is nice and we have the buffet desert too, and the wine is tasty. We want to bit a bit of everything rather than going for the executive lunch. Besides, this will be good training for them. Unfortunately, the... More

While staying at the Pousada de Mong Ha, we tried the high tea in this restaurant. With just MOP$80 per person (10% off for hotel guest), we could relax in a very spacious and quiet restaurant for an hour or so. Highly recommended while you're staying in the hotel.
