Fantastic food, great sangria and a very friendly owner. We did not speak Portuguese, but had no problem ordering and Mr. Santos made us feel very welcome.

This is a nice little restaurant in a small town. We were hungry and stuck in the rain so decided to try some non-asian foods in this place. The menu is simple enough with english and some photos. The portions were huge! Good thing the waitress warned us before we ordered any more items. I'm no Portugal food expert but... More

The food was great and delicious. Somehow we kept ordering, but the staff would tell us it's really too many dishes for us. It's very nice of the staff!

I have eaten at this restaurant several times over a period of 20 years. The food is always great and the family atmosphere is very nice.

We visited Macau last month with our friends (part of a 24 day tour). We wanted to try a Portuguese restaurant (when in Rome, ...) and O Santos Comida showed up favorably in Trip Advisor. We found that, as good as the ratings were, they were understated. This is not (nor is it advertised as a) fine dining experience. However,... More

Sought this place out for some Portuguese food while we were in Macau. Went inside and were set at a table very quickly. Decor is street restaurant, paper placemats, silverware in the middle. Began reviewing the menu and were surprised that each dish was $18-45. Half of them are just a plate of fries with 4 Oz of low quality... More

The atmosphere is nice, the staff are competent, the owner rather congenial. It's been there for more than 20 years and the whole set up is very picturesque, cosy and warm. Is the food good? It's very authentic, it's pretty much like an average restaurant in Portugal. The oilier grub is . . . well, oily, and i don't want... More

We were already resting at the hotel after a long day walk. We thought we should at least try a Portuguese meal before leaving Macau next day. The first restaurant that came to mind was O Santos which we had passed by on the previous day. Oh my! I was glad we made the effort to come to this restaurant.... More
