A Spectacular Chinese-French Dining Experience
The French name 'La Chine' aptly reflects the unique restaurant's identity: the pinnacle of Chinese gastronomy, located in the stunning Eiffel Tower, reminiscent of the 'City of Lights'. Since its opening the restaurant has become one of the must-visit and most Instagrammable restaurants in Macao.

Helming La Chine is Executive Chinese Chef Ben Lui, who is originally from Hong Kong and has been in the industry for over 30 years. Prior to joining La Chine, Chef Ben led a renowned restaurant to a coveted two-star rating in the Michelin Guide Shanghai. Over the years he has honed his skills in Cantonese cuisine, using traditional cooking techniques and the finest seasonal ingredients to compose a symphony of exquisite and authentic flavours. Signature dishes include smoked baby pigeon flavoured with lemongrass; poached Boston lobster in superior prawn broth; chilled Australian lobster; braised beef rib and beef tendon with turnip; and deep-fried fish maw with golden superior broth.

Chef Ben also celebrates many Hong Kong-style street treats at La Chine, adhering to traditional cooking techniques while choosing top-quality ingredients. Not-to-miss gems include traditional deep-fried shrimp toast; crispy fried chicken wings stuffed with bird's nest; and wok-fried chicken with shallot, ginger and coriander.

Outside the kitchen, Chef Ben enjoys interacting with guests to understand what they love to eat and current dining trends. He said: "At La Chine, we strive to pass on the celebrated Cantonese culinary culture to the next generation, and attach great importance to the presentation of dishes, incorporating visually appealing elements of classical poetry and art to add a unique Chinese touch."
