26 oz rib-eye steak is a steal

Juicy inside and crispy outside, the 26 oz Angus rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection. It was a very good surprise for my Texan husband who knows steak to the max. Most of the people go there for Macanese / Portuguese food, but we decide to try the steak. It was perfectly done and the... read more

Overall food is above average. Especially the rid-eye, is a good choice. Everything is cheerful until we ask to check the bill . We asked if any discount can be offered if one of my friend is alumni and he responses in a very poor manner. I heard that the staff is a lecturer, but his attitude doesn't show any... More

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! It was a very good value, as we got to sample a lot of dishes we... More

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!

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.
