“Still superb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I've been promoting this place for years to friends, but it has not caught on with the international crowd. The locals know how great it is and always pack in at mealtime, especially weekend lunch.

They do seafood, pork, and duck, of course, but their forte is the dim sum, aka Yum Cha. Just have coffee and a roll for breakfast at your hotel and then come here at about 11 for a sublime feed of Cantonese delicacies and staples.

No English, but don't be deterred. The staff will help you. Don't be shy about pointing to what other diners have ordered. Be sure to have a pot of Tieguanyin tea with your meal.

This is a traditional Cantonese restaurant, and the first teapot you get just has hot water for doing the ritual re-washing of your dishes and utensils at the table. Just watch your neighbors, and imitate them. Waitress will bring a discard basin.

This fine restaurant is on the second floor of a mixed-use building almost directly across the street from the Beverly Plaza Hotel. Prices are reasonable; they have not been inflated for tourists. This is a locals restaurant.

I come here every time I'm in town and have never been disappointed. It's always humming and bustling 热闹。 The food is always outstanding.

“Can I rate this restaurant higher than excellent?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

What a find! Just around the corner from the Lisboa Casino. We don't speak Chinese; the staff spoke little English. But together we managed to order the best meal we had in Macau!

We were the only anglos in the restaurant, but were welcomed very warmly by the staff, who continually checked that we were happy with the food. The BBQ pork with honey sauce and prawn dumplings were the best we've had anywhere - so delicious!

The price was reasonable, the service was excellent, and the food was sensational!

“Excellent dim sum lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Restaurante Campo de Dragao.

Location is convenient to the Lisboa and Grand Lisboa, as well as to the Holiday Inn and the Royal up the hill towards Guia. It's on the second level of Avenida Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues, and needs to be reached via the skyway. The actual compass bearings of these places is confusing for me because of the way peninsular Macau is laid out, but if you are facing the Lisboa, it will be on your right.

I visit every time I'm in Macau (3 or 4 times a year on average) and always breathe a sigh of relief when I find that it hasn't closed or moved. Been coming seven or eight years.

Seldom see any foreigners, so I guess it's kind of off the "tourist trail." On weekends the clientele is mostly families, during the week, the diners are mostly business men and business women. Best time to arrive is a bit before noon, maybe 11:15 or so, because they get real full by 12, particularly on weekends. They run out of tables and you may have a wait if you come right at prime time.

Everything my friends and I have ever had has been quite good and reasonably priced. Never a dud. They do have a fish tank, but that's mainly for evenings. I always go at lunch, for whatever reason. They have all the items you would expect, and quality is high. A nice selection of teas. Particularly recommend their house tieguanyin. If you prefer a flower tea, the juhua (chrysanthemum) is also delicious.

One drawback is that you need to be able to order from one of those tear-off Chinese menus printed on a pad in which you just check the boxes of the dishes you want. But this is not insurmountable. My reading is very slow, especially using traditional Hanzi, and I can always find a friendly waitress to just let me order my favorites verbally, while she does the clerical parts of the process.

This isn't the kind of place where they just endlessly roll carts around and you can grab dishes to try. You will need to know a bit of the language. In a pinch you can use the old trick of pointing to what others are eating, but it's best if you can also then ask "Excuse me, what is that?"

The atmosphere is bustling and happy, very renao 热闹。 This place is extremely popular with the locals.

Restaurante Campo de Dragao, Avenida Dr. Rodrigo Rodrigues, No 103-105. Phone (853) 2878-2345.
