25 years later and still a winner

I first came here with a group of work colleagues from Hong Kong away on a stag weekend in Macau. And I have been back several times over the past 25 years, have never been disappointed and have always had a great time. The food is tasty, the bread rolls are crunchy on the outside and warm and soft... read more

Real portuguese and macanese cuisines! Must try! Better make the reservation, before you go, because always full house!

You need a reservation for this place. It's small and apparently very popular with the locals. I went with a friend and we ordered the clams, the mixed seafood rice, and the African chicken. The clams were best. If you are going by yourself, order just the clams, a glass of sangria. Take the warm bread and use the clam... More

We first read about this restaurant in a guide book so thought that we give a try of Macau local cuisine. The restaurant is near the A Ma temple and conveniently located next to a bus stop so it was very easy for us to find our way to the restaurant with public transport. The restaurant is quite small and... More

My boyfriend and I followed lonely planets advice and came here after visiting the A-Ma temple. From the outside it looked as if it were closed but as we opened the door we could already sense a great atmosphere. The waiters and waitresses were so friendly. We had four dishes, the octopus salad being our favourite meal - a must... More

There was already a name brand on the table. People could went direclty to the table with your name. The waitor/waitress could only speak Cantonese or... More

Not only did the staff recommended dishes to us, she actually stopped us from over ordering. The services & food were good.

My wife and I ended up here because both the Cafe Militaire and a fancy restaurant at the Grand Lisboa required pants...but I was in shorts. So a very helpful assistant manager at the Grand Lisboa named Alex made reservations for us at A Lorcha. It is important to note that many of the fine dining establishments adhere to a... More

Had a really pleasant supper at a highly-recommended restaurant. We found the service very efficient and the staff friendly, without being overly attentive. The food was simple but very good. As we had had the first sitting at 18h30 we were not that hungry so found the dishes ample to share. The rissois we crispy and tasty, whilst the African... More

We visited A Lorcha after learning our favourite restaurant (Fernando's) was closed ... we were taking visiting family member to see Dancing with Waters at 5pm, and planned for a late lunch before the show. We live in Hong Kong and go to Macau every couple of months. We found A Lorcha listed in several tour books, so thought we'd... More
