“Another Portuguese Restaurant”

Estb de Comidas Wai Kei
Ranked #484 of 783 Restaurants in Macau
Cuisines: Portuguese
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Had read favorable reviews of Wai Kei and had been to the other good Portuguese restaurant across the street several months ago. This time I wanted to sample the competition.

I arrived about 6:30 and they apparently don't get busy until after 7 or 7:30, so the ambiance was kind of dead. In fact they were doing noisy repairs in the kitchen, and I almost turned around and left.

Ordered Portuguese style mussels and cabbage with a cheese sauce. The food was skimpy and not at all spectacular. Probably should have gotten some of the roasted meats, since they looked good on other tables. Did have a nice half bottle of Vinho Verde.

Service was pretty casual and not very attentive. Prices were reasonable, but were did not constitute a bargain. It's difficult to fairly evaluate a restaurant when part of the reason for the less than stellar experience might have been because of my own mistakes. I think I arrived too early and did not order wisely.

These two Portuguese family style restaurants, Wai Kei and Porto Exterior, are in a pedestrian street about a block from the Rio. That's the closest landmark for a taxi. In Chinese, Rio is 利澳, in case you need to show it to the driver.

Recommended this restaurant by our hotel when we asked for a reasonably priced portuguese restaurant and it didn't disappoint.

The restaurant is homely, like a good local restaurant, not posh but pleasant. We had a good evening here as the staff are very friendly. I ordered the Oxtail curry and it was delicious, meat fell off the bone and the curry was very nice, my husband ordered the duck rice which was also nice.

Reasonable with 2 drinks each and tip came to about 30 pounds. Would definately recommend if you are after trying some portuguese cuisine and a pleasant evening without breaking the bank.
