Another very good lunch recently

Espaco Lisboa is a great little Portuguese restaurant in the sleepy village of Coloane. We very much enjoy eating here and find this to be one of our favourite restaurants in Macau at this time. In terms of the food, they do a very good African Chicken here. The Espaco recipe features a... read more

Was there for lunch with 2 friends. Recommended by our Hotel concierge, I thought that was going to be a great meal, that turned out just ok'ish. Again, not bad, but not great either. Maybe will give it a tray again in my next visit. Staff were often playing with their mobile, rather than giving you attention. That was the... More

We had a delightful lunch here last Saturday after hiking over to Coloane. We sat on the balcony upstairs and enjoyed the sunshine and views. We had the house red and white wine which was excellent and went well with all the dishes we ate. We especially enjoyed the codfish cakes - I would totally recommend these tasty morsels! We... More

Appetisers are good. Clams, chorizo, octopus salad. Classic Macau mains were average. Cod was still dry. Lamb chops the same. Didn't have the wine we asked for on the wine list, but wouldn't reduce the corkage fee. Also wouldnt give tap water. Clearly the staff were tied up by ridiculous policies from the manager (who was absent). Really spoilt an... More

As I am living in Hong Kong, I travel to Macau couple times a year for short escape. It is no gambling but dining and drinking mainly. There are many good restaurants in Macau and I always go to Espaco Lisboa for a dinner everytime I turn up in Macau. It is a small restaurant with kind of family kitch... More

Once again, an enjoyable meal with excellent service. We were alone on the balcony but well looked after. Warm bread and olives provided at the beginning. A cheap and drinkable house wine. The sardines, salad and fish cakes were all good

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...
