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....

Located just beside the original Lord Stow's Egg Tart Bakery in Coloane, the Espaco Lisboa offers a worthwhile alternative to the usual Macau tourist traps for traditional home-style Portuguese food. Set in a converted 2 story house with perfect white table cloths and a cute little balcony for a romantic tete-a-tete, the food here is definitely worth the short taxi... More

Great food and nice service. After looking for a place where to enjoy a portuguese lunch in Macau, we found this great place, the food was brilliant and the service too. I was surprised on the quality of the meat and fish. Great place!!!

I am sorry to report that based on the TA reviews, we booked this retaurant for our second of 2 dinners in Macau, and we were vry disappointed. The taxi ride from Macau is long and harrowing. The taxi drivers are not thrilled to drive people down to this location an the construction enroute is huge. Perhaps if you are... More
