Having lunch at O Santos was the highlight of our day visit to Macau. Food was great so was the Sangria, but most importantly was the owner Santos who welcomes his visitors with a great smile and much patience. He took the time to sit with us and chat. We were also very privileged to take photos with him.

I have been eating at O Santos for decades and that says it all. A place where you can always expect a warm welcome, good home style food and a pleasant atmosphere. It's one of the few remaining family run local Portuguese restaurants and when you see the owner tucking into his own food for lunch and dinner you know... More

My wife and I were walking down Rua do Cunha and saw people lining up outside this restaurant. That is usually a good sign so we joined in right on lunch opening time and got a table up stairs. We had no idea about the food or any of the reviews. With the help of a local, my wife ordered... More

I went last month and I met the owner, very nice person, very open and having this restaurant for quite long now! Food is good, local and not too expensive, ambiance that night was very Portuguese and nice! I really recomend the restaurant if you want some taste of portuguese food to feel like at home. Thank you

I think this is the best place in Macau to sample real Portuguese food. Nothing fancy, just a small restaurant run by a friendly owner, located on one of Macau's more interesting streets (Rua do Cunha). Other reviews note how busy this place is and how it can be difficult to get a table - however came for a late... More

We were in at the restaurant at 11:30am and people were already queuing in front of the door. Very good and typical Portuguese cuisine. Nice wine selection and very good service.

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
