Our Robuchon Au Dome experience started at 13:30 when we rode up the elevator to the 39th floor at Grand Lisboa Hotel, and then switched to another elevator that brought us up to the 43rd, which is solely dedicated to Robuchon Au Dome. On good days, you will very likely have an amazing view of Macau's skyline from this floor, but Macau was testy and smoggy that particular day so there was no view to speak off. 

The restaurant itself is lovely and filled with light, seeing as all the outer walls are all made of glass. Upon sitting, a welcome champagne trolley (they have a lot of trolleys) offered us a drink, so we took one flute of Dom Perignon each. FYI though, this is charged, not complimentary, so take a flute at your discretion.

For this meal, we went with the 3rd Option above - the Gourmet Menu at MOP 888/Person for a 7-set course, along with an additional MOP 320 for two wine pairings. Each course aside from the Amuse Bouche and the dessert/mignardises have multiple options for you to choose from. 

This is what we chose for our meal:

La Mara de Bois, a delicious blend of tart and savory, with strawberry puree, frozen burrata cheese pearls, and basil.

L'Oeuf de Poule (1st picture), the most delicious thing we had, which consists of a soft-boiled egg with a crispy outer layer on a cloud of spinach, Conte cheese, and smoked duck.

L'Aubergine, Eggplant Veloute with light rice emulsion and Iberico flavor

Le Spaghetti (5th picture), Maine Lobster Pasta with spiced coral emulsion

Le Mini Burger (6th picture), A Joel Robuchon special but our least favorite, this mini burger has both Wagyu Beef and Foie Gras with lightly caramelized bell peppers

There were also three different trolleys - for the bread (and a special butter they carve for you), the desserts, and the mignardises. You can only get three choices of the dessert and chocolates but by that time we were stuffed to the brim so three was a perfect number.


THE VERDICT

This is the type of meal you should try at least once when in Macau. The ambience is nothing to scoff at, and the staff is amazing. We were intrigued with the food preparation and the majority of foods were utterly, devastatingly delicious. It is perfect for special occasions and romantic dates.

So we say it, Robuchon Au Dome is EDIT-APPROVED. Must-try for all you foodies out there looking to splurge on an amazing spread.
