A taste of local cuisine. Good food and good service.

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... read 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

A Lorcha is a highly regarded restaurant in Macau that has long been recognised as one of the best options for Portuguese food on the Macau peninsula. Reservations are must but you can sometimes be lucky as a walk-in diner at lunch time. We recently dined at A Lorcha and tried their African Chicken for the first time. This is... More

My friends actually recommended this Portuguese restaurant to me when they heard that I was going to Macau, so I decided to give it a try! The restaurant is really accessible; just take any bus that goes to A-Ma Temple, and the restaurant is right in front of the bus stop near A-Ma Temple. It is advisable to make reservations... More
