They really get the signature dishes right at Espaco Lisboa

Recent lunch at Espaco Lisboa was as good as we have had here in a couple of years, African chicken was succulent, well prepared and delicious, an overall wonderful serving (rating 4.5 of 5). We also enjoy the duck rice, another dish they consistently get right at Espaco Lisboa. Lots of duck... read more

Just awesome is all I can say.. The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. The staff are friendly and the owner is nice. This place was founded by an ex-Portugese military man who was posted in Macau during Portugese rule and NEVER LEFT the island. He's been there for over 30 years and you can see him frequently...

The seating were upstairs in an older building, which was very cool and the decor was reminiscent of old Lisbon. The tapas were good, but definitely on the salty side, but the main dishes were less than desirable. The sangria was on the weak side as well. The dinning experience was decent and the staff was nice and friendly, but... More

I went there for several times, and the standard of food sustain. However, no more tap water and olives provided, this is a bit disappointing. The bread is fresh and yummy, the octopus salad is nice as well

Was there for lunch with 2 friends. Recommended by our Hotel concierge, I thought that was going to be a great meal, that turned out just ok'ish. Again, not bad, but not great either. Maybe will give it a tray again in my next visit. Staff were often playing with their mobile, rather than giving you attention. That was the... More

Espaco Lisboa is a great little Portuguese restaurant in the sleepy village of Coloane. We very much enjoy eating here and find this to be one of our favourite restaurants in Macau at this time. In terms of the food, they do a very good African Chicken here. The Espaco recipe features a generous amount of coconut shavings, which sweetens... More

We had a delightful lunch here last Saturday after hiking over to Coloane. We sat on the balcony upstairs and enjoyed the sunshine and views. We had the house red and white wine which was excellent and went well with all the dishes we ate. We especially enjoyed the codfish cakes - I would totally recommend these tasty morsels! We... More

Appetisers are good. Clams, chorizo, octopus salad. Classic Macau mains were average. Cod was still dry. Lamb chops the same. Didn't have the wine we asked for on the wine list, but wouldn't reduce the corkage fee. Also wouldnt give tap water. Clearly the staff were tied up by ridiculous policies from the manager (who was absent). Really spoilt an... More

As I am living in Hong Kong, I travel to Macau couple times a year for short escape. It is no gambling but dining and drinking mainly. There are many good restaurants in Macau and I always go to Espaco Lisboa for a dinner everytime I turn up in Macau. It is a small restaurant with kind of family kitch... More

Once again, an enjoyable meal with excellent service. We were alone on the balcony but well looked after. Warm bread and olives provided at the beginning. A cheap and drinkable house wine. The sardines, salad and fish cakes were all good
