Great eat in Macau

Great food and possibly the best Portuguese in Macau. Uses the right amount of garlic as opposed to most places that drown their dishes with it. Good service and decent prices for what you get.

Perfect authentic eatery. My only issues with this place is it's ALWAYS crowded and there's lil room to navigate (tightly packed seating). Food is worth sitting atop your neighbor.

My Friends and I were looking for a portuguese restaurant in Macao for having our last dinner there. We looked at tripadvisor and we realized that O Santos was what we wanted. It is a tiny place sorrounded by other mini restaurants and coffe shops, but we went there completely decided for have our meal there. In the moment we... More

I have been to Macau many times and tried quite a few so called "Portuguese Restaurant". Sometimes works out, sometimes you end up in a Portuguese-Macau Owned fusion restaurant, which it's not quite what I was looking for. After being strongly recommend by a Local Portuguese in Macau, I went there for my treat. You can immediately tell who's the... More

Ran across this little gem of a restaurant while visiting Macau Taipa. You have to look for it, since it's down a little side street, but the food is FANTASTIC and worth the hunt! We had a cod dish and baked chicken, but then after we ordered, and sipping our portuguese red wine, we were surprised to find all meals... More

We've been to O'Santos and had a great lunch. The restaurant offer a great atmosphere and the owner was just sitting next to our table and gave us his personal recommendation. The food itself is basic Portuguese but tasty and authentic. Perfect spot to experience still the Portuguese living style in an older part of the town. Definitely highly recommended... More

There're a lot of Portuguese restaurants in Macau, tried number of them and O Santos is always my favourite even though it is not as big / grand / fancy then others around, their quality of food and the reasonable price are something keeping me to visit again. I revisited last night after a year of time, their tablecloths changed... More

The food was really good and the staff was really nice! The menu was also really broad and the quality of the dishes were high! I will absolutely go there again if I'm visiting Macau again.
