Macao’s dining establishments have failed to make the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list for 2024, or the runner up list of the world’s 51 to 100 best restaurants

This is in spite of the city having two Michelin three-star restaurants and six Michelin two-star establishments, and comes as a rebuff to Macao’s designation as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy.

The news will also disappoint tourism officials and integrated resort operators who routinely use gastronomic experiences as a major selling point for the city.

Macao’s neighbouring SAR Hong Kong has two restaurants in the top 50 – the Chairman at number 26 and new entry Wing at number 20.

Macao was also snubbed in the 2024 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list, with only one entry  – Chef Tam’s Seasons scraping in at number 49 – compared to six restaurants from Hong Kong.

The 50 Best franchise bills itself as the “leading authority in global gastronomy,” highlighting great restaurants from around the world. 

Its latest 50 Best Restaurants list was published on Wednesday, with Barcelona’s Disfrutar at the top of the list.

The highest Asian placings were Bangkok’s Gaggan at number 9 and Tokyo’s Sézanne at number 15.
