When staying in Macau we googled restaurants. We found Macau Soul and were not disappointed. David and Jackie, English owners were warm people making you feel very welcome in their restaurant. David was very knowledgable with his wines and you could see the love in the food that Jackie and David served. The menu is not huge, but the food... More

This was our first visit here but won't be our last! The owner Jacky helped select our wine which was excllent. We had the cheese board, salad and Portuguese ham. Everything was top quality but the cheese board stood out comprising the finest English cheeses, nuts, dried fruits and grapes, beautifully arranged. Jacky also gave us a Portuguese cheese to...

My wife and I ventured to Macau Soul a few weeks ago, seeking a refuge from the busy streets of Macau. We weren't disappointed. The room is lovely, the service first rate, and the wine we had, a vino verde, was delightful. But that's not what really makes this place stand out to us -- hours after our mid-afternoon break,...

Cold, wet weather is never a good combination. But there we were... Cold, wet and hungry! So we skittled down the street for somewhere to have a drink and a bite to eat. Wow! At the recommendation of their neighbours, we found MacauSoul! Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. The "English Pint" was delicious! The pork paté; a dream. The open Tuna... More

I'd like to echo the sentiments of the last reviewer. Macau Soul is, indeed, a Macau must. And perhaps more than that, it's an Asia must. When Michelin awards 3 stars to a restaurant, they say it "warrants making a special journey for". For wine connoisseurs, Macau Soul deserves the same distinction, and I don't care where you are.

David and Jacky (the proprietors) of this lovely little establishment have gone to a great deal of trouble to create a "Macao MUST"!!! If you are planning a visit, book your table well in advance. We had a simply splendid evening!!! :-)

We spent an hour looking for MacauSoul, based on a Lonely Planet recommendation. It exceeded our expectations. We came to MacauSoul before opening hours, but David (one of the owners) opened the doors to us anyway. What we found was a beautifully furnished, comfortable, lounge. The owners really made the experience for me. Hospitality such as which is on offer... More

The two owners are lovely. They clearly have seen Macau through the years and have a fascinating perspective of local history and urban change. The atmosphere is also outstanding. I rarely am compelled to write a review but I simply cannot recommend this place enough.
