It's one of the most famous Portuguese restaurants in Macau and the food is great. But you may have to be prepared for lots of people inside.

Cozy atmosphere, attentive staff and mouth-watering food, from hot-from-the-oven bread to s the pork/clam dish everything was superb. Be adventurous..the octopus salad (seviche) was full of tender octopus, the bacalhau authentic (even if it was a bit salty for me) and 44, filled with clams and lean, tender pork was beyond delicious. Portions are large; one starter and two entrees... More

Thats basically it. It has a large selection of authentic traditional Portuguese dishes and is houses in a quaint space. The service is good and its very reasonable. Perhaps this is something unique for Macau, but its not unique for many other parts of the world. Suclking Pig and chorizo is excellent. Leche flan is too heavy.

We have tried three times on previous trips to dine here. However, this past weekend we were able to get a table and boy was the wait worth it!! The menu is predominantly Portuguese and everything we ate was AMAZING!! The portions, taste, and quality were top shelf! We will definitely return on our next trip to Macau.

We ended up arriving in a taxi having failed to find the restaurant on foot - the rain didn't help either. As soon as we walked through the door, I was heartened to see a mix of families, businessmen, and tourists all looking happy as they tucked in to their late lunch. The menu is primarily Portuguese and everything we... More

Was here for lunch on the first day of their reopening after being closed for a 1 week renovation. The service staff were extremely friendly and helpful with their suggestions. The breads rolls were freshly baked and the octopus salad was very appetising. The garlic clams, A Lorcha octopus and chicken were simply divine. You could taste the cod with... More

Everything in the menu are great!! If in Macau, you should not miss going to this restaurant. Suggestion is that you make a reservation or else you would have to wait for an hour to be seated.

We enjoyed the food and service at A Lorcha - baccalou, Portuguese chorizo, cod cakes, beef ribs and a delicious wine recommended by the waiter that was not at the top end of price selections, Not impressive were the bread rolls and the very boring salad - iceberg lettuce, a slice of tomato and several slices of raw onion.

Went there for lunch while in Macau, there's a couple of bus services that stops right in front of the restaurant, just look for the "A Ma Temple" stop in the route and it will take you right in front of A Lorcha. Definitely make a reservation in advance, it's a small restaurant so they might not be able to... More
