This restaurant is really popular and is a good option if you're looking for Portuguese cuisine whilst exploring Cuhna street. But I found the prices a little steep and portion sizes smaller than other places. Better places around.

Not really necessary to come all the way. There should be somewhere better. I would say the food taste it's just OK. The roast pig skin wasn't crispy but meat is tender. Chips not crispy at all. We only ordered small bottle of water, a glass of draft beer & lemon tea. The total cost of the was USD90.

We wanted to have Portuguese food for dinner. This was easily found when we walked around Taipa Village. Well located. We ordered 2 dishes including the Roasted suckling pork. Nice & crispy though not the best we tried. Food was not cheap. The owner was nice enough to walked around to greet diners and even posed for photos.

We spent some days in Hong Kong and went for a day trip to Macau....it was an excellent break from the Asian food. An European friend took us there. It was like being back in Portugal.. excellent unpretentious home made food, fair price, warm and friendly service by the owner and his staff. Other European restaurants around can be so... More

Look any place where there is a queue out the door and when you walk in the walls are covered in football memorabilia has me almost before the first bite! Add in great staff who carefully suggest our food and wine choices which are all superb and you have a winner of an evening. We were able to book a... More

We loved the atmosphere and food at O Santos! We would definitely return! It's an easy walk from Galaxy and Venetian!

Bravo, bravo! I have not enjoyed a dinner for such a long time. O Santos definitely is a highlight of any trip to Macau. Arrive early as the place does not accept bookings. Queues start forming a good half hour before opening. Consider yourself lucky if you get one of the very in demand tables. The inside is simple, but... More

Went there in April for lunch on a weekend. Easy to get a table as we went a bit late (I think around 1h45 or 2pm). Got a table upstairs by the window. Service friendly throughout the meal. We got cheese, wine, olives, codfish cakes and another typical dish from Portugal. All good, and we were even too ful to... More

The owner and the staff are very friendly and can speak English/Chinese/Portuguese if you find it hard to choose the food you'd like to have. The food is good and a bit expensive, but hey we are talking about a foreign cuisine and there are other more expensive Portuguese restaurants in Macau. Give it a try! It is located in... More
