Inspired by the city's lotus symbol and rich heritage, Grand Lisboa is a stunning architectural wonder soaring above the downtown area of the Macau Peninsula.

Here you can find three-Michelin-starred restaurant Robuchon au Dôme sitting on top of the hotel under the vaulted glass dome. Along with an exquisite menu of contemporary French cuisine, the restaurant offers the most extensive and exclusive wine collection in Asia. Since 2005, the restaurant has been receiving the Wine Spectator's 'Grand Award' for its remarkable range of wines. 

Another of the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurants, The Eight, offers innovative Cantonese cuisine and one of the best dim sum selections in town, which includes exquisite goldfish-shaped crystal blue shrimp dumplings.
