Cafe Bela Vista is probably better known for the buffet it runs twice a day but the Mavenettes and I tried their a la carte menu instead.
Extremely varied, the menu is a mix of many different world cuisines, along with more traditional Chinese and seafood favourites. We found the quality of food to be a lot like what you get in Western restaurants in five star hotels on the Chinese mainland.
That’s to say, what we had was okay and inoffensive, but not remarkable or special in any way. It definitely wasn’t worth paying Macau prices for, nor trying again.
Service was another problem. Waitresses were neither very attentive nor very eager to serve. It seemed like they were used to just serving drinks or clearing tables during the buffet. We found their attitude to be as lackluster as the food.
Bottom line? Cafe Bela Vista is only useful for those looking for a quick bite and a convenient meal, not any kind of memorable dining experience. When you try to be a jack of all trades, you’re a master of none, and that’s the best way to sum up this restaurant.
