74 Macau Establishments in Michelin Guide 2014

Receiving three Michelin stars, and now ranked among the best restaurants in Asia, is The Eight. Serving Cantonese and Huaiyang cuisine and over 50 different types of dim sum, this innovative restaurant, which now sits in the category described as “exceptional cuisine and worth a special journey”, is located in the Grand Lisboa’s iconic dome alongside Robuchon au Dome, which retains its three Michelin stars. Robuchon au Dome is famous for its contemporary French dishes and its immaculate setting offering 360° views across Macau.

Within the 2-star category, described as “excellent cooking and worth a detour”, are Zi Yat Heen, a traditional Cantonese restaurant set in the Four Seasons Hotel and the Golden Flower, upgraded from 1-star in 2013. The Beijing-inspired Golden Flower is located within the Encore Hotel and serves three different cuisines – Sichuan, Lu and Tan – along with a few Cantonese dishes.

Seven further restaurants throughout Macau have been awarded one Michelin star, while nine affordable establishments are recognised within the Bib Gourmand category. This category reflects the Michelin inspectors’ favourite outlets for good value and quality cuisine and includes everything from restaurants and local food stalls to noodle shops and congee eateries, all within easy reach of key tourist and historic sites as well as on the islands of Taipa and Coloane.

Situated on the south-east coast of China only 40 miles from Hong Kong, Macau has a wonderfully varied food scene. Along with some of the best Portuguese food outside Portugal, Chinese cuisine of all kinds and award-winning restaurants, Macau is home to the unique Macanese cuisine. One of the original fusion cuisines, Macanese food blends Portuguese flavours and cooking styles with local Chinese cuisine, as well as drawing on influences from Africa, India, South America and Malaysia. Visitors can enjoy a gastronomic paradise during a stay in Macau – pretty Portuguese coffee shops sit alongside Chinese street stalls and international restaurants run by innovative and talented chefs.
