We manage to get a table within 20min and Nice and clean environment. The foods are very nice but we could not taste some of the signature dishes if we visit Macau in future will definitely come again.

The food here is simple but very tasty. We ordered the cochinillo in advanced and was quite good. very Tender with just the right amount of flavor. The clams, African chicken, egg with bacalhau, fried rice, lengua, ox tail, bacalhau, etc... are all good. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. But book ahead of time since it gets full... More

After reading the review from TA, I decided to give it a shot. Upon arriving, there is a short queue of 5-6pax waiting for the restaurant to open its gate which is at 6:30pm. So we queue and once the door is open, we went it and was ask that do we have any booking? We reply no but luckily... More

We booked several days in advance for a Sunday lunch. The restaurant is always full and it doesn't have many tables. Unfortunately we forgot to order the roast pig in advance. We tried the recommended seafood rice which we found rather heavy with the liquid. The ox tongue was very good. The Portugese chicken comes with rice too, we ended... More

We have not been for several years and visited with eight friends. Two of our group knew the staff and this undoubtedly made for an almost perfect lunch. The fish dishes were excellent as was the caldo verde. The staff chose our red and white wines and this was a great idea as both were superb. We finished with sawdust... More

It was a very busy day on Sunday. As expected, it was full and reservation was possible only at two. The seafood and bread stew is wonderful and superb with good "seafood" taste possibly from clam. The rest selection of stewed oxtail, chargrilled pork, beef and sardines are just average quality. Not disappointing but not especially impressed. There is a... More

Owner's father born in Portugal and he has carried on the tradition. My sardines were authentic Portuguese and the crab curry (medium) was delicious. Unfortunately they had run out of several desserts including ice cream! However still merit VG because of starters and mains and very good friendly informal service and atmosphere.

Warm and friendly service with cosy decor. Excellent Portuguese food and decent range of wines. The house sangria is excellent. Make sure you book in advance, especially for dinner. This place is justifiably popular with local residents and visitors alike.

It's not located in the central tourist area but it's always full and reservations are always a must. It's an indication of the quality of their food. The ox-tail stew is the best for me. The clams too. Worth the trip there.
