I'd like to score this higher but I can't based on my experience here. There was nothing wrong with the food. It was actually quite nice, but it wasn't amazing so i had to give it 3 stars.

I wasn't wowed by the vegetarian options they had. I think I might have given it 4 stars if I ate meat and tried another dish. Portuguese food isn't very veggie-friendly and I knew that visiting here.

I will say, however, that the service was great. Macau has such an amazing culture and if you love Macanese food you'll probably enjoy Dumbo.

I only had one day in Macau, I was told by a friend to try Curry Crab and Portuguese Egg Tarts. So upon reaching the hotel, I asked concierge the best place and Dumbo is what he recommended.

It did not disappoint! We ordered the curry crab and that's it (we were still full from our hotel breakfast buffet). The crab was SO good. The flavor was excellent and I don't typically like onion, but these onions were simmered in the sauce. It was so good we ordered a second plate!

And we shared an egg tart for dessert, YUM!

The restaurant itself isn't fancy, looks like of like a diner. Many of the servers spoke basic english, so communication for us was easy. It is in a cute area of shops, so you can walk around and work off your lunch/dinner afterwards.

I would go back and I would definitely recommend.

I've made 4 or 5 trips to Macau and Dumbos is always the first stop. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu and the service is excellent. It's top notch Macanese cuisine and a great place to relax with friends. Try a pitcher of watermelon juice for desert!
