Fine dining in Macau

November 14, 2011

History cannot pinpoint exactly when and how fine dining came to be but research indicates that forks, which are now part of almost every Western meal, were used in the beginning of the 17th century. One can therefore probably deduce that fine dining also started to evolve at the time. Today, fine dining is not only a form or method of dining but an experience.

While it is true that in Macau there many restaurants to choose from offering a wide variety cuisine, diners are becoming increasingly discerning, now true fine dinning combines not only delicious food prepared by the best chefs but also an exquisite setting.

Enter Belon, Banyan Tree Macau’s signature restaurant which offers nothing short of an amazing culinary experience.

Named after Brittany’s famous delicacy and located on the 31st floor of Banyan Tree Macau, Belon does not only offer fine dining at its best but it serves it with breathtaking panoramic views over Cotai. Belon fine dining restaurant has been designed to evoke an aquatic environment, with the luxuriously immersive experience, beginning from the moment of arrival.

Fast gaining reputation as Macau’s best fine dining restaurant, Belon is a Classical European Grill that offers premium seafood. And by premium, we mean premium – Norwegian salmon, Chilean sea bass, Dover sole and, to the excitement of foodies, Maine lobster. While waiting for the main course, diners can enjoy the freshest oysters, caviar, lobster bisque and duck foie gras. The grill master also offers prime USDA, Alberta and Australian Wagyu steaks – a delight for meat lovers across the globe. Customers can also have their share of baby pork ribs, Dutch veal rib and NZ lamb rack and some specialties can even be prepared “table side” for an interesting interactive culinary experience. Meals at Belon are capped with the most luxurious desserts that even the most discerning foodie will enjoy.

Belon fine dining restaurant is open for dinner daily (closed every Tuesday) from 6 PM until late. Come and experience true fine dining.
