Macau’s highest Chinese restaurant is set on the 51st floor of The Ritz-Carlton and boasts meticulous attention to detail from the menu to décor, which offers nods to Macau’s Chinese and Portuguese heritage.

Chef Fu Man-piu, previously with two-star Michelin restaurant Tin Lung Heen in Hong Kong, oversees the menu. The degustation set menu with wine pairing is a great way to impress business associates, or from the à la carte, the marinated chicken in soy sauce and roasted three-layer pork belly from the barbecue, and the live seafood with four styles of preparing to choose from.

The dessert platter is a good ending. The wine list offers over 500 labels.
