Restaurant was situated at top of a hill. Quite a walk up, especially for the elderly. Ambience is that of fine dining, so service quality was good. Set lunch was about MOP 200 per pax. Appetizers and main course were quite ok. Efforts were put into presentation of the dishes. Only complaint we have was that the beef was over-cooked.... More

Because of that premise, I'd imagine that everyone who goes to IFT Educational Restaurant probably comes away with a different experience.

Both the presentation and the taste were great. The only downside was the fact that we finished on an underwhelming note, as the dessert buffet simply did not live up... More

We love the food, the service, the ambiance and the friendly professional staff/ trainees. Thank you to the restaurant manager who went the extra mile to make this happen! It is because of this restaurant that we have decided to go back to Macau again in the future and go to enjoy the fabulous food again.
