Perched on the second floor of the swanky Mandarin Oriental, this lustrous restaurant and bar seems to be one of the hottest spots in Macau nowadays, serving a fusion of contemporary dishes from the Cantonese cuisine, as well as from Europe's Mediterranean countries.
Boasting an uber-stylish interiors that is very spacious on one hand, yet smartly designed in a way that allows patrons to enjoy some intimacy, the whole place is bordered by colossal floor to ceiling windows through which you can enjoy the gleaming night skyline of Nam Van Lake.
Recommended dishes from the Cantonese side of the menu include Braised South African Abalone with goose palm,
Pan fried bird's nest dumplings, Braised beef stripes with ginger and spring onions, and Aromatic roasted duck, while recommendations from the European section of the menu include African Chicken (A famous Portuguese-Macanese favorite), Oven-baked Bacalhau (codfish) with olives, dried tomatoes, cream-cheesed potatoes and more…, Brandy marinated foie gras and Grilled Australian lamb rack.
During lunch (until 3pm), you can also enjoy their variety of dim-sums.
The bar is the right place to unwind after dinner, boasting a decent choice of wines by the glass, as well as cocktails, alcoholic coffees, champagnes, aperitifs, cognacs and what have you… They also have a "tapas menu" (including sandwiches and salads), in case you want to skip dinner and settle for something lighter.
Prices are not bad for a restaurant of this standard: expect to spend around MOP 300 – 500 for a full a-la-carte dinner, unless you opt for the very pricy Shark's fin and Superior abalone.
Open daily for lunch and dinner (the bar stays open until midnight, or even later on weekends)
