The IFT Educational Restaurant is attached to Macau's Institute for Tourism Studies to provide the opportunity for students to experience the art of serving in a high quality restaurant environment. The result is a very exclusive setting for a memorable meal, an excellent and reasonably priced wine list of exclusively Portuguese wines, and a wide ranging menu covering both Portuguese... More

Service is inexperienced. Well, they are there to learn - it is a learning institution after all. Deco is not very sophisticated, except of the wine cellar - show room, perhaps. Overall the restaurant lacks warmth, soul and character. The food is the highlight, more people should come and try it. Wonderful and inexpensive black angus sirloin 740g at 500... More

One of the better places I've dined in in Macau. Serving modern-style Macanese and Western-inspired dishes, good presentation, correct end result. Place decor also commendable.

Have been here with my wife a couple of times. We liked it. Good experience, very good food, nice to see people who really seem to be wanting to serve you and enjoy your meal. Ever changing menu means it's never dull, differing themes, enjoy!

We were not even aware of this place until we booked into the adjacent pousada (inn). You have to book ahead as it is very popular. The staff were able to squeeze us in for lunch and it was well worth it. A wide variety of beautifully cooked and presented food including local Macanese (fusion) dishes were on offer. The... More

This place is popular, so you will have to plan ahead if you want to eat here. The food is consistently wonderful. You won't regret a hike up the hill. I recommend the business lunch set, but if that's too much food for you, the lobster bisque is always a winner. The African chicken is delightful. The duck appetizer is... More

Great restaurant in an unexpected place. Quite and very modern and stylish. Proves are not cheap for an educational restaurant but the quality is very good. There is no lack of staff because there is normal staff devour staff and students. Try to come for the happy hour before your dinner to get done good deals on cocktails and spirits.... More

We were treated to a welcome lunch on a long contract here in Macau. The service is excellent and there is much to choose from - the sweet buffet a particular delight. Would just like some more vegetables but really enjoyed the food here and would like to come again. Lovely look out over gardens and trees too.

Excellent food and service in this educational restaurant which is training for restaurant management. Very close to Pousada de Mong-Ha Hotel. You even get a discount if you come from the hotel. Very good selection of dishes (Macanese, vegetarian, dessert,...)
