Palace Garden

Fine dining in exquisite Chinoiserie-inspired settings

Resplendent, opulent, breathtaking — Palace Garden is a feast for the senses in more ways than one. As the crown jewel of the lavish Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau, this fine-dining restaurant borrows inspiration from the royal gardens of Europe and China, exuding decadence and vibrancy everywhere you look. Created by famed Hong Kong designer Alan Chan, the abundantly colorful space offers a stunning tribute to the iconic Chinoiserie style that thrived in the 17th century as trade increased between Europe and Asia.

The restaurant’s dishes are just as memorable as the surroundings. Executive chef Ken Chong oversees a refined menu of Cantonese haute cuisine, serving authentic recipes alongside modern reinterpretations of dishes once prepared exclusively for Qing emperors. For something unique, head to Palace Garden’s cocktail lounge, Li Bai Bar, where digital walls designed by artist Yang Yong Liang display an immersive, virtual landscape painting depicting Macau and Hong Kong cityscapes.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Reinterpreting imperial Cantonese cuisine for contemporary tastes, chef Chong is known for his dynamic, modern style and masterful techniques. Experience a sampling of flavors with a delicious dim sum spread where signatures like crystal blue prawn dumplings and pork dumplings with aged mandarin peel will delight the palate. Or, for dinner, try the partridge bisque, a rich and flavorful soup, alongside a crystal tiger prawn, served with 52-month-aged Iberico ham and a 25-year-aged balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
  • Discover premium Chinese tea selections, such as Ming Qian Shi Feng Long Jing Tea from the mountains outside of Hangzhou or the fruity, floral An Ji White Tea known for its health benefits.
  • Let one of five private dining rooms immerse you in art and decadence. Accommodating between six and 12 guests, each room boasts a different dazzling motif: the Fan Room takes inspiration from the delicate Eastern and Western fans used by royal courtesans, while the Butterfly Room features a kaleidoscope of butterfly artwork.
  • Oenophiles will be impressed with the extensive trove of more than 1,400 wine labels. For a beautifully balanced meal, try the Prestige Set Menu — an eight-course menu paired with specially selected vintage wines. A premium Chinese tea pairing is also available if that’s more your speed.
  • After passing through a grand gate resembling the Chateau de Versailles in France, you will enter a majestic, garden-like setting rooted in art and imagination. No matter where you sit in this maximalist Macau restaurant, you’ll be transported to a world of luxury and opulence and treated like royalty while you’re there.

The Design

  • Bespoke objets d’art, handcrafted flower installations, custom silk wall embroideries and digital art enliven virtually every corner of this artful restaurant.
  • At the heart of this spectacular space is a 115-foot-long, 8-foot-high silk mural that showcases an ancient embroidery technique from Suzhou, China. The incredible work took 60 embroidery masters and more than 100,000 hours to create.
  • You will discover six free-standing circular Chinese fans in the main dining room. Embroidered in the Suzhou style, the fans depict traditional scenes of birds and botanicals while doubling as beautiful room dividers for added intimacy.
  • Don’t forget to look up. Two show-stopping crystal chandeliers — one in the shape of a flying dragon and the other inspired by flowing water — adorn the dining hall’s resplendent ceiling, adding even more extravagance to the experience.
  • Subtle nods to traditional Chinese culture are everywhere, including illustrations from Dream of the Red Chamber, one of China’s Four Great Classical Novels, with scenes from the book etched in the gold-colored glass wall that overlooks the main dining room.
