Had the special pork chop and the duck baked rice and a medium Sangria to share amongst 6 people (we had dinner before this already) Both were very good dishes and also the Sangria was good. However we ended paying around 90hkd per pax for an after dinner affair of only 2 dishes with one glass of sangria. Not the... More

If you really want to try the original & traditional Portuguese dishes, you must go to "O Santos"!! A little chat with owner makes part of the meal - a former sailor in love with is home country, that will make you feel at home!

This is a small, cosy Portugese restaurant located in Tapai area. We ordered the recommended dishes on the menu and no regrets. Coupled with Sangria - best to end our Macau trip with great food.

Once we ordered food it just continued to be great. The clams... More

Despite considering ourself 'foodies' and adventurous we always end up at O Santo's when in Macau. The quality is consistent, the tastes are great, the atmosphere is genuine and non pretentious. We've tried most of the menu but the mushroom cream beef and the pork ear salad remain my favourites. The house wine comes in large carafes with the medium... More

My wife was born in Angola but moved to Alentejo when she was 10 yrs old. She told me we had some of the best Alentejo food she has ever experienced. Owner and Chef Santos has a really special touch. We tried the octopus with "migas" as a starter with a tomato and cucumber salad spiced up with coriander. Really... More

My friends wanted to taste Portuguese food while in Macau. Luckily, we stayed on Taipa island and be able to walk to Taipa Village. I picked this restaurant according to my Macau guide book. We met the owner greeting guests at the door. The restaurant was rather small but cozy. Among the 4 dishes we ordered, I liked the suckling... More
