Robuchon au Dôme

So how does the “Chef of the Century” measure up in the new millennium? The answer has to be, pretty darn good, even though – and quite naturally – Joël Robuchon himself only puts in occasional appearances. The setting is almost overwhelming, at the top of the Grand Lisboa with an asteroid-type chandelier hovering over the dining area. The service is exemplary, the food sincerely French and the prices what you might expect from a chef with a galaxy of Michelin stars attached to his name. Many Macanese foodies reckon – and I agree – that the set lunch menu is one of the best meal deals in Asia. The wine list may prove a bit of a challenge, but the sommelier (plus iPad) is patient and helpful. Eating, and drinking, here is a real treat.
