Decor? passable. If you're feeling like mystery meat just order the duck breast bun, or should I say pork duck. Forget about going to the Sahara Dessert just try the meatballs. If you like undercooked pizza that arrives wrapped in tin foil from a mystery location then this is the place for you. Also the bacon tasted like off ham... More

It looks much more like a bar/cafe than like a restaurant. It's tiny and it has high tables. So, I would expect they had a good selection of spirits available, which is not the case. Portuguese community seems to be happy with it, though, since there are always a lot of them at this place.

I really enjoyed all of the food we had here, but the interior could definitely use some work. The washroom is a tiny closet behind a folding door. The service was friendly and quick. Close to the main square.

Despite being a mecca for gambling, Macau does not have many casual bar/taverns. The Cathedral Cafe was a great find for us on a recent trip. A block off the central Senado Square on the Rua de Se (behind the post office), this is a small, welcoming tavern. We were there on a Saturday night for beer, wine, tapas and... More

There are a few places in Macau like Cathedral, where you can take some drinks after work, or have a good time after dinner (closes late). Friendly staff, good selection of beers (Portuguese included). Drinks & food are not cheap but it has happy hour every week day (afternoon).

This place is a gem. Food was absolutely amazing, price was good and staff were very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good feed and drink during a busy day exploring Macau.
