Was excellent, still very good

This was a rustic place out of town, that served great BBQ suckling pig, chicken, etc. Unfortunately, it has become so popular that they are not maintain their charm and quality.Still flavorful, but not as tasty and crispy as it used to be. Used to be a must go restaurant, now only can go.

I don't suppose there's a restaurant more famous than this one in Macao. I've been several times in the past 20 years and each time I go, I vow I won't be back but unfortunately it is the sort of place that is so well known that it is an obvious choice by people who want to meet up for... More

Fernando's came highly recommended. Journey to the beach was a pleasant little excursion via bus svc 25. Arrived at the beach with time for a pleasant stroll before heading to Fernando's. Garden salad had gorgeous tomatoes. For mains we had Pork ribs and Quail. For the price, I've had much better. Was a chore to eat the pork. Overcooked, dry... More

I used to come to this restaurant for the suckling pig. I went again lately when I visited Macau again. I was disappointed. The skin was not crispy and the tastes were dull. The clams was ok, the ribs were tough. The only thing as good as the old days was the bread. Overall I was not satisfied. Apparently the... More

The food was great and the house red was perfect. The dining area was an old world decor. I ordered the fried rice and it could have fed 4 people.

I was disappointed by Macau... Too hot, too many people strolling the Portuguese area to visit the ruins of the Cathedral and buying dried meat (i'm vegetarian)... We have then decided to try the famous Fernando's restaurant.... I though it was a modern rich restaurant on the beach, similar to the exaggerate fake ostentation of casinos. When we arrived (by...

We have gone to Fernando's at least twice a year for the 16 years we lived in Hong Kong and traveled to Macau. We normally stayed the Westin Resort, so the walk along Hac Sa Beach over to Fernando's was pleasant and convenient. The last time we went was Feb 5th, '15. Fernando's is never a disappointment! We always order... More

Here you can get decent Portuguese food - and that's it. Due to absence of air conditioning( they have a warning at the door), can be really hot during summer time. Definitely, worth to give a try, if you're located nearby - but, personally, I won't travel from Central Macau, just to visit this place - there's a lot of... More

We visited this place starting in 2007 and still kept going each time that we went back to Hong Kong. The foods always good here. The services was always up and down which sometime very good and sometime very bad.
