“Very good food in a beautiful ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This restaurant is a very good choice in terms of food. The ambience is exceptional and really very accomodating. Separate rooms and WLAN are available. The choice of food is rich and probably oriented to Macau dishes. Some Portuguese favourites are not available however (espetada mixta de carne, frango assado). The selection of red wines is large and many good wines from Portugal are available (Borba, Dão Grão Vasco), and prices are reasonable.
Unfortunately, noone speaks well English or Portuguese. Nevertheless, it's a great place for good food and a nice evening.

“Pound for pound the best International Restaurant in Xi'an”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

This is located right in the middle of Gaoxin, near the expensive hotels, but this International restaurant is remarkably good value for money given its location.
There's a wide range of Portuguese/Macau inspired dishes, as well as all the usual steak and seafood dishes, and having been there 6 times now I can honestly say they've never failed to impress with a single dish - always well prepared, perfectly cooked and served in a timely fashion.
Especially recommended are the roasted perch, the mexican pancakes and the curried sirloin.
The atmosphere is authentically 'western' with tasteful decor and romantic candelight after 7.30pm.
