To a guy with totally no idea of how portugese food should taste like, this restaurant served food that was very tasty and suitable to Asian taste buds. However, I would like to highlight the outstanding service. We had 6 persons and just did a walk in. It was obviously packed during dinner time, but the lady, which I believe... More

A group of us decided to try O Santos after reading an array of mostly good reviews. This restaurant is definitely one of the best Portuguese restaurants in Macau. In fact, a couple in the group, even went as far to say that it was better than many of the restaurants they went to whilst living in Portugal. The quality... More

The food here is very traditional macanese style. If you like fish and rice, you should be good to go. The owner of the restaurant often is hanging around and the restaurant is filled with pictures of soccer players and famous or well loved patrons. The other thing I would add is the restaurant is very small and lots of... More

Enjoyed the Octopus salad, lamb stew, and grilled fish. Very comfortable air conditioned rooms. It is in a touristy area and do expect to pay a little more. Just a few blocks away you can find Macanese dishes for less, but the food is good and portions are ample.

Probably the best portuguese restaurant in Macau, entering in SANTOS, is like you are entering Portugal. Every wall, every corner of this restaurant have a piece of decoration reminding Portugal. The food, is very good, good quality real traditional dishes cooked as they have to be. All the products including beverages are from Portugal, brands that is not possible to... More

My brother took me to Santos as it has the best Portuguese food in Macau. He couldn't get in last time he visited as Mike Jagger was eating in there, but this time we were lucky and got the last table in the place. I ordered a shrimp curry which was absolutely sensational. On the way out we thanked Santos... More

unfortunately we did not have the pleasure of eating here as my husband was not well come the evening. But with all your great reviews and excellent telephone manner as I could call for a reservation in English, I am sure it would have been a lovely experience. Gracies!
