I'll keep this one short: amazing food, familiar and welcoming environment and well located, right next to Black Sand beach. After meals, you can always take a walk around the place and enjoy the peacefulness that is so hard to find in Macau.

Great food, good service in a location to die for, right on the beach. We ate fabulous seafood and drank lovely vino Verde.

Like a number of reviewers have mentioned, I do agree that the restaurant tend to face the risk of being overrated given the hype that was built around it. I've had some delicious home-cooked and authentic dishes by my Portuguese friends before but salty was never really the characteristic to which I would describe their delicacies. But then, the stuffed... More

My 2nd visit in 2 years and it didn't disappoint. I love portuguese food and on my 2 visits to Macau, I've visited a number of Restaurants Fernando's is for me the only authentic portuguese restaurant I have visited. The chicken is to die for and the beef stew was pretty special too. In terms of value for money, Fernando's... More

We loved the fish and wine, perhaps the service was a bit rushed compared to Portugal. However, it was real authentic Bacalhao a braz, and Pasteis de Bacalhao. A very nice find so far from Lisbon.

My husband went to eat at this place 10 years ago on his first trip abroad ever. So of course he wanted to take me there on my first visit to Macau. We went there for a late-ish lunch (we got there around 2:30pm or so). It was fairly busy but we still found a table in the back. We... More

We took a bus and then a taxi going all the way here. Before then, we've already had food in 5 Portuguese restaurants. We loved them all and enjoyed the time there. Before we lefte Macau, we decided to come to this highly-recommanded restaurant. It was very disappointing. The food was good but not amazing. However, the waiters and waitresses... More

their tomato, chicken and crab are very delicious. but you may need to wait a very long wait if went by normal meal time. meaning 6 - 9pm. so we went at 5pm. Had our big meal and felt very happy seeing people queue up very long outside the restaurant on our way out. :)

Well-deserved reputation, food is excellent. In any case, do not expect luxury at this location. Staff were nice and food was served quickly.

Fernando's is a must try for all visitors to Macau. It offers great tasting local food in an environment that is incredibly charming in its simplicity. Fernando's does not take reservations but is open from noon until 9:30 p.m. (last order). Go early, as it can be difficult to get a taxi ride home. Also, know that bus routes that... More
