Clube Militar is a fantastic historic setting for an exceptional restaurant that serves traditional Portuguese food updated to the 21st century. It is a unique experience to have lunch or dinner at the Militar Clube, where one returns to the old colonial gatherings of local...officials, aristocracy, and intellectuals. The environment invites to taste unique food served by very professional and helpful staff. Other than by list menu, the restaurant offers pleasant buffets where fresh flavored salads meet the best Portuguese gastronomy: codfish, duck rice along with chorizo, hams, and splendid cheeses. The desserts are lovely offering those sweet -- more than mellifluous -- Portuguese puddings, tarts, and milk creams. An extraordinary experience at a quite fair price. Well done.More

We visited the Military Club de Macau during Christmas. We tried many dishes including their traditional Portguese soup and crab meat soup - nice presentation by pouring the soup into the dish. The Bacalhau fish cake is excellent cooked and presented on the table. Sardine...is fresh and yummy. Ducking rice is traditional one, beef tenderloin and suckling pogs are all good. For dessert, we tried the Basil souflet - inspiring and taste special. The atmosphere is nice in Eurpoean historic building. Need to book in advanced. We visited the Macau Art show in the basement with 18 Macanese artists. Full of Macanese feel for the whole evening.More

I visited this restaurant for lunch/dinner more than ten years. I went there tonight with my wife and ordered one of my favourite “duck rice”. However, they cooked the rice too long this time and the rice became dry and hard. The manger “Lucy” took...the rice back to kitchen after I told her the rice is over cooked. She came back with the rice and said “the chef told her that is the way this restaurant cooks the duck rice”. Then I told her although I am not a member of the club, I am not a tourist first time visiting the restaurant and I knew how the duck rice should be. And I told her just left the rice on the table if the restaurant felt it is the way to treat a guest as I can pay the bill without any problem. The rice was left on my table. However, after few minutes later, Lucy started to discuss with the guests of another table and saying “people should not expecting a Chinese style cooking when ordering a Portuguese dish”. Although Lucy did apologise and not charging the price of the duck rice after my complaint on what she discussed with other guests, obviously she was totally not accepting my comments on their cooking. As a restaurant guest, I can understand a restaurant cannot cook a dish satisfactorily every time. But it is unacceptable if the restaurant staffs (both kitchen and serving staffs) are not trying to listen the comments from guests. Unless the restaurant can improve the training of the kitchen and serving staffs how to handle customers comments and respect each guest (even though not being a club member). Otherwise if people go this restaurant for meals, they should accept all the cooking and services as that is the “Portuguese style” providing by them.More

The Cube Militar is a private membership club that also allows outsiders to have meals there. I was invited for lunch and never having been there before I was surprised about the nice setting which is a time warp into the past era of Macau....For lunch a buffet is offered that has a small but nice selection, enough to have a nice meal. Price for non-members is very reasonable as well. A nice and unique lunch experience in Macau. Be aware that lunch gets very busy.More

This was a disappointing evening in terms of food. While the atmosphere is classy the food itsself is at the very best : average . Tough meat , cheap ingredients (potato chips as side dish,though home made, is not exactly grande cuisine) in some dishes...and my suckling pig was just skin with bones ...a lot of the latter and almost no meat . To be fair : prices are good but this place in terms of food cannot compete with "Antonio" at all unfortunatelyMore

A special menu dinner after a one-hour concert at Stanley Ho room. And also a special table setting for a truly memorable night. Highly recommended.

Food quality and taste was excellent. Restaurant is in a classical looking building few minutes from our hotel. Large open dining room could have been a colonial military officers mess hall. We tried to make reservations early afternoon for dinner at night but restaurant was...booked up. We were able to reserve for next night however. Service was quick and efficient with pleasant hard working staff. Classy restaurant with starched linen tablecloths and napkins. No negatives to say about dining experience.More

Being a frequent dinner here is hard to be "impartial" on this review. Lunch time is great for the buffet (all you can eat) for a very fair price, specially when most of the days the buffet menu is amazing (the other times is just...a question of liking the food or not)! But the true spirit of Clube Militar is at dinner time. It becomes something taken from a 1940's of 50's movie with the white towels, the wooden fans on the ceiling and the rest of.the decoration. All the staff is fantastic and you can start your experience with several cocktails and them move to the food... from the starters to desserts, going through the fish - specially Bacalhau - and the meats, everything is prepared by the amazing kitchen team (all Filipinos!!) that represent the Portuguese Culinary Art almost to perfection! One MANDATORY place to visit when in Macau! Just a note because there's a dress code if you want to have a meal there (no shorts/sandles/tennis for men. Women and children are more relaxed but you won't feel comfortable dinning dress like that!) And they have a bi-annual food and wine festival with guest chefs from Portugal (June and October)More

Really enjoyed our meal here. The food is very good, decent sized portions and not over priced. The dining room is very nice and relaxing providing the perfect setting for a meal with my husband. The service was a little slow at times, but when...it did come, it came with smile 😊More

Been here a few times before, always a very good experience. This time a was a little sceptical, having learned about their Michelin Star (I don’t like award-winning places, because the food tends to become airline-quality and they lose their spirit). I couldn’t have been...more wrong! Excellent cuisine, excellent collection of wines, excellent service. Besides, the place is really beautiful.More

There are some stairs to go up the restaurant, but not many. You can look for a photo of the entrance in Wikipedia (look for Macao Military Club). I am sure the employees of the restaurant can help you with the chair, there... More

Not sure as I didn't see this option on menu but you may definitely consult the restaurant manager.
