My friends and I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. Santos came to the table and by the time he left, it felt like we were leaving behind a friend. The cod fish croquettes were my favorite! The sangria was very good (even though, I wouldn't have mind a bit more wine). We took a... More

We had a great filling dinner here at a very realistic price.. The food was delicious and the house wine was enjoyable. The food was very authentic. We had a chat with some Portuguese customers and there were many Portuguese locals dining. The value was excellent and we had a table upstairs, very informal, but that was what we expected.... More

We were planning to eat at another Portuguese pace in Taipa village but as that was booked out we were recommended O Santos. Without any booking Santos was able to somehow accommodate my family, which included my mother, my wife and two little children, 3month and 2.5yr old as thigh we were family. Santos (the owner) and his staff very... More

Overall very good experience. Special thanks for stuffed crab. I tried them in several places in Macau and was accustomised to average sized beast about 4". This one was huge; taking in account the quantity of free bread provided with it, it should be a dish for family. Of for stuffed crab fans like i am :) All we four... More

What a pleasure to walk into a restaurant and immediately feel like you part of the family! Mr Santos, his wife and all the staff made us feel at home in their cosy restaurant The food was amazing and we had a whole spread. From the traditional Portuguese sausage, the African chicken, creamy mushroom and beef to the best fries... More

Based on the recommendation , I ordered the baked duck rice , curry chicken and the roast pig. All agreed the suckling pig was fantastic but the baked duck was a letdown. The chicken is good but I wouldnt miss it .

This was my first foray to this long established Portuguese restaurant which I had long heard about but had never had the pleasure to try. As soon as my friends and I entered, we thought to ourselves that we had come to the right place. The atmosphere was old world and cosy and there were a lot of local Portuguese... More

Santos himself greeted us as we walked into this authentic, delicious Portuguese restaurant on a great little pedestrian street in Taipa. He suggested a great bottle of red wine that was about $15 USD and my friend and I shared the cheese plate, sausage plate, rice, and a vinaigrette salad. All were very good (for the price) and the atmosphere... More

i am from hong kong, chinese. we went at 8pm. Ordered grill fish which in recommended and grill prawn. both dishes were priced the same roughly US$18. Fish was superb but 18 dollars for 4 little prawns seemed not that acceptable. Nice decoration and friendly but the owner was playing with his phone all the time where we were there.... More
