Wonderful find! Totally different as a venue being in an old metallurgical warehouse but very atmospheric! Service was excellent & the cabrito very good accompanied by excellent wine, a fine white port to start & a glass of sublime Portuguese brandy to finish.

After touring Macau for most of the morning I was definitely ready for lunch. A taxi ride to Coloane to this little gem was just the ticket. I had pasteis de bacalhau to start, then pork and clams. Typical Portuguese portions mean that I couldn't finish this delicious meal. Sat upstairs and inside rather than on the terrace due to... More

The review said this restaurant has similar menu as Antonio's, so I decided to try. This restaurant is located in an old small house. The 2nd floor may have a better dining environment because of its old style European roof top. however it was fully booked during our visit. we have to sit at ground floor. the waitress is very...

This is a lovely restaurant with great service and great food! We were seated inside, upstairs. The two meals we ordered were excellent, but the evening was marred by the frequent sound of a whistle. We think it might have been something to do with the dumbwaiter bringing food up from the kitchen. It was a harsh sound that sometimes... More

Espaco Lisboa is in Coloane away from the lights of Cotai but visitors shouldn't let that deter them. My partner and I had a great experience there recently. Yes, the restaurant may not be easy to find (its virtually on the roundabout) and at first glance appears small (or cosy), but there is upstairs and the balcony. On the cooler... More

Arrived just after 2pm on a Friday and found there were a couple unoccupied tables, we were greeted happily by English speaking staff and shown to an open table. For our meal, we ordered the grilled sardines (MIP130) that tasted just fine (rating 3.25 of 5). We also ordered the African Chicken served with a side of layered gratinated potato... More

We had clam for appetizer and it was awesome...the gravy was so tasty and it's so good with the bread. Main course was baked cod fish, which was a little too watery but the taste was good. The white wine recommended by waiter was so good...the best ever! But, the serradura pudding was a little disappointing. Overall, I would consider... More

Had an excellent romantic Sunday dinner here. Having booked late we were the only ones on the balcony on a pleasantly cool evening. Lovely Spanish music crooning quietly in the background The Portugese white wine was reasonably priced and went so well with the delicious creamy mushroom starter and grilled sardines. Service was charmingly friendly - even to the extent... More

The things we got... Starters: - Garlic prawns - save your bread for mopping up the delicious butter sauce. The prawns were fresh and cooked with skill, well flavored and delicious. - Sauteed mushrooms with ham/bacon - was much too salty for me, and nothing special Main course: - African chicken - curry, coconut, soft and falling apart chicken chunks....
