Restaurants in Macau city

The Macau restaurants below have been grouped into three pricing categories:

Expensive (over HKD1,000)

Moderate (HKD200 to HKD1,000)

Cheap (up to HKD200)

These Macau restaurant prices are for a three-course meal for one and include tax, service and half a bottle of house wine or equivalent. Prices are listed in Hong Kong dollars rather than Macau patacas as the two currencies are virtually interchangeable.

Robuchon au Dôme

Price: Expensive
Cuisine: Modern French

Now the proud recipient of no less than three Michelin stars, this superb restaurant is worth splurging out for. Modern French food is served with aplomb, and diners can also enjoy incredible views from their position on the 43rd floor of the Grand Lisboa Hotel.

Address: Avenida de Lisboa, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 8803 7878

Zi Yat Heen

Price: Expensive
Cuisine: Chinese

The Michelin-starred Zi Yat Heen at the Four Seasons Hotel Macau serves authentic, high-quality Cantonese cuisine and a creative dim sum menu in a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere. The emphasis is on fresh ingredients, seafood and traditional favourites, with more unusual items such as baked lamb chops with coffee sauce.

Telephone: +853 2881 8818

Ristorante Il Teatro

Price: Expensive
Cuisine: Italian

One of four fine dining options at Wynn Macau, this Italian restaurant lives up to its name with theatrical grandeur. Excellent southern Italian cuisine and pizzas are dished up in a dining room shaped like an operatic balcony around a grand stage. Tables overlook the performing fountains outside.

Telephone: +853 8986 3663

Restaurante Fernando

Price: Moderate
Cuisine: Portuguese

Famed for its seafood served on red-and-white-check tablecloths and accompanied by large jugs of sangria, this seaside restaurant is a Macau icon. Portuguese wines are displayed around the dining room – and taste especially fine when sipped under the big tree in the courtyard.

Address: 9 Praia Hac Sa, Coloane, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2888 2264

Clube Militar de Macau

Price: Moderate
Cuisine: Portuguese

Housed in one of the destination’s most distinguished colonial buildings (built in 1870 for army officers), the Military Club is as atmospheric a place as you'll find in Macau. The well-prepared food is almost a sideshow to the setting, and the Portuguese wine list is excellent.

Address: 975 Avenida da Praia Grande, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2871 4000

A Lorcha

Price: Moderate
Cuisine: Portuguese

A long-standing favourite with visitors in search of authentic Portuguese grub, this rustic-style restaurant serves up an array of Iberian classics. Expect everything from dried cod salad and steamed crab to sautéed pork with clams. It’s closed on Tuesdays, and you’d be wise to book ahead at other times.

Address: Avenida Almirante Sergio, no 289 AA, ground floor, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2831 3193

Ou Mun Café

Price: Cheap
Cuisine: Portuguese

Follow the aroma of roasting coffee beans to this delightful Portuguese café, located down a side lane just off Senado Square. It serves good-value set lunches and freshly baked pastries and breads, and the fresh-brewed coffee is excellent.

Address: 12 Travessa Sao Domingos, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2837 2207

Café Deco Macau

Price: Cheap
Cuisine: Asian & Western

A good catch-all option with a menu that covers everything from tandoori and Thai to pizzas and burgers. It forms a part of the sprawling Shoppes at Venetian mall and (perhaps most importantly for ravenous night owls) stays open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Address: Shop 1036, Shoppes at Venetian, The Venetian Macao, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2882 3326

Lord Stow’s Bakery

Price: Cheap
Cuisine: Bakery

First founded back in 1989 (an absolute age ago in Macau’s terms), this iconic little café-cum-bakery in Coloane has achieved something approaching legendary status. The reason? Its exquisite, oven-warm egg tarts. Such are their popularity that the bakery now has multiple outlets around Macau.

Address: 1 Rua do Tassara, Coloane, Macau, Macau, China
Telephone: +853 2888 2534
