The Michelin Guide Hong Kong Macau 2023 was unveiled today at a ceremony at the Grand Lisboa Hotel Macau.
The restaurants handed the coveted three stars by the guide’s anonymous team of inspectors are: Jade Dragon at City of Dreams, Robuchon au Dôme at Grand Lisboa Hotel and The Eight at Grand Lisboa Hotel.
The one-star restaurants listed in the guide are: 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana at Galaxy Macau, Lai Heen at Ritz Carlton Macau, The Kitchen at Grand Lisboa Hotel, Wing Lei Palace at Wynn Palace, Pearl Dragon at Studio City Macau, Ying at Altira Macau, Zi Yat Heen at Four Seasons Macao, Five Foot Road at MGM Cotai and Huaiyang Garden at the Londoner Macao.
“As we navigate the challenges brought about by the pandemic, we’re glad to see that Hong Kong and Macao have reopened their doors to travellers,” said Chris Gledhill, vice president of business development for the Michelin Guide in East Asia and the Middle East.
Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes, head of the Macao Government Tourism Office, was present at the gathering and told guests that Macao had been “utilising wining and dining for many years as one of the most important parts of the tourism mix”.
Last year, a total of 15 Macao restaurants made it into the guide, comprising three three-star restaurants, five two-star restaurants and seven one-star restaurants.
To celebrate the launch of the 2023 guide, a gala dinner will be held at the Grand Lisboa Palace on Wednesday evening, featuring an eight-course menu created by seven chefs honoured in the 2022 Michelin Guide.
