Had to visit twice!

We had two nights in Macau and spent both dinner nights at O Santos. Both nights (W&Th) around 2000, we walked in and got a table. Olives and bread were promptly served. We ordered the house Red which we felt was very nice. The first night lamb and clams and a sausage dish with ham and an egg... read more

Still one reference in good food. Specialist in welcome you and give you the very portuguese taste. The most difficult task is get a table but try you can be surprised. One spot to 'check in' in Taipa Macau.

Had to get there early. Otherwise you have to wait in line because the restaurant is small. Overall, the food was great. We definitely will go back to eat if we had a chance

Reasonably priced, good service and delicious comfort food. Suckling pig one of the best I've had. If I'm going back to Macau, I will visit this again.

We had baked cod and a sausage stew. Both were simply delicious! The place had a nice atmosphere and bustle about it. The service was unusually responsive for the region....overall a great experience!

O Santos is the best Portuguese restaurant in Macau as would be one of the best in any other part of the world... including Portugal. The food is delicious. It's the real Portuguese food (starters, meat dishes, fish dishes, desserts...). The wine list also have the best options from all the different regions of the country. And the place is... More

Great food, really delicious. Good service, wonderful atmosphere. Very friendly owner. Thoroughly recommend if you go to Macau, definitely worth the journey from Coloane or Macau. Great for kids, owner was so kind to them.

We went to Taipa village and found this restaurant on the food street. I've seen good reviews on it and my sister couldn't wait to try so we have it a go. A bit pricey but worth every penny. My little sister just couldn't stop saying 'This is delicious!' for the first ten minutes into eating. The place is small... More

We went to this portugese restaurant based on the very good critics we have read in Tripadvisor. The food however was average at best from our perspective. One of the issues was e.g. that our dishes were lacking decent seasoning. In addition all came very fast and made an impression of fast in and out to increase the number of... More
