Don't let the closed doors fool you. The place is warm and the owners are very hospitable. They have a great variety of food and the service is quick (our orders came a little less than 10 minutes). If you want to dine or have a break just a little away from the busy street of Rua de Cunha, this... More

Do not think twice! We took our chances to try Portuguese in Macau and we made THE PERFECT CHOICE!!! I say this because I have been to Porto, Lisbon, Sintra Portugal and I say O Santos will not disappoint. They cook their meals just the way real Portuguese serve theirs. The acidity was well balanced with the octopus and onions... More

Very good seafood selection and location,just right on Taipa village. But most of them can not speak English and a crowed of people. Anyway it's a nice place to have some Portugal food . Especially seafood .

I've been wanting to try to place out for a while - but just never had the chance... After finding out it was inside Taipa Village, I decided to finally make my way over for lunch! They open at noon (which is pretty late) - I was expecting a long line - but there were only a few other parties... More

We had lunch here and was immediately greeted by the owner, Santos, upon entering. We ordered the clams, bacalao balls, and the black pig loin. Everything was delicious! Will definitely come back!

First time to O Santos for dinner and was amazed with the good food and ambiance of this little family restaurant at Rua de Cunha. Was surprised to see Mike Jagger's photo with the owner on the wall. Eat like Jagger! Recommended! PS: I actually ate there again for lunch before I left Macau the next day.

Came here based on other reviews. Quick service and easy to find. Food's OK but I thought it was a little ex for what it is. Friendly boss and others seemed to enjoy it. Guess it's one of those, you've gotta try it for yourself, place. Had a great chicken dish here though. What was it.... I think it was... More
