O Santos is the same now as over 20 years ago except for some updates to the football memorabilia adorning the walls. Yes it is a small understated restaurant amongst the glitz of all the new casinos, but this adds to the charm. As always the excellent, fresh, taste of the Portuguese food served is great, very fast service and... More

First of all as Portuguese it was like travel back to home for a while, as Benfiquista a pleasure to meet Sr. Santos and share with him some stories about... More

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.
