Absolutely enjoyed a wonderful lunch here last week. The food was excellent and the young staff training were absolutely charming. Recommend the scallops and African chicken...you won't regret it!

The Educational restaurant is currently under renovation, so the Pousada restaurant adjacent to the Posada de Mong Ha is being used. Relaxed atmosphere decorated with Portuguese tile panels and decorations. Students working in the restaurant are well supported by supervisors. The food was well presented and excellent. Large selection of Portuguese wines. Tables well spaced so quiet conversation with friends... More

We were in Macau for 3 days, and had had this restaurant in our sights for some time. During the booking process (email) we felt we were take good care of. We selected the tasting menu, which had a familiar taste to it - sort of a homely bouquet :o) The food was well prepared and presented. Only the waiters... More

This is a very good value fine-dining restaurant. We paid less than 100usd/per couple for the tasting menu and a bottle of wine. This is less than half of any other similar restaurant in Macau. Food was great, in a sort of traditional french fine-dining style. For Macaense food there are a few options in the menu but we haven't... More

Service is spectacular. A 5* restaurant with Michelin recommendations, but at a very reasonable price. Food is nicely displayed and are all very delicious.

For only 200MOP per person without any service charge for set lunch, this restaurant offer great value for their top service and delicious food. Their service are of top quality from the very beginning of making a phone reservation to their warm farewell. When we arrived, we got a detailed explanation of their menu and recommendation of what to eat... More

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

It's a neat idea to have a fancy restaurant for the purpose of training people to work in a fancy restaurant. Because of that premise, I'd imagine that everyone who goes to IFT Educational Restaurant probably comes away with a different experience. For me, the students were very apparent and often nervously smiling. They made mistakes and one even cried... More

Although this is a learning restaurant, the service was quick and courteous and the food was tasty. We had the set lunch and really liked our appetizers and main courses. 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
